This looks to be a good game conceptually but I get the feeling that the execution isn't going to be as they have visioned. They are a hard working team but the fluidity isn't there. The leap in creativity of fighting games are very subtle, there needs to be a team that understands what those who like this genre expect out of new fighting games. Surely they must see that this is not what we as gamers expect of this gen quality.

Damn them, another "rotating trailer" its stupid.
Happened with Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 trailer as well and Cyberpunk 2077 with slight slow mo movement.

Give us action damn it, let them fight!

One day a Justice League or Avengers game will come out that is actually a sprawling action-adventure game that has all our heroes having completely unique and distinct skill sets and play differently. Just another fighting game until then.

Looks so bad and considering how outright awful MK9 was the expectations aren't exactly high here :P

This isn't capcom and this isn't a serious fighting game, its for fanboys of the comics or the characters who always have the peeing constests of who is better... so it will just be predictable in what it became...

I will check it out but I have a bad feeling about it because of the costumes being way too Mortal Kombat like... hopefully it will have a challenge tower... I just recently repurchased Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition hoping that the game was all patched up in disc form along with the bonus characters... too bad they never bothered to add more challenges to the tower or a playable Kintaro, Goro and Shao Kahn...

Still this Justice League game has some potential in helping this dev team improve their skills so that when they make their next game or the next MK it will be better even if it is on the same current gen hardware...

I really don't understand WTF you're talking about (and not sure you do, either). This team is one of the last teams that have been doing it longer than you've been playing games. They're the Mortal Kombat team and they're one of the last teams that are holding a torch for your "true fighting game fans". Unless, of course, you only think people of Japanese descent can make great fighters.

If you like MK & DC, you'll like this, because it looks super-polished. If you hate either or already have some misguided notions of what "next gen" is (when there isn't a "next gen" and won't be one before this comes out for "this gen"), then you'll just wallow in hate.

I personally don't like MK. I don't like the way it plays or animates. But this... this looks fun.

wow... after thinking about it more and more... I really, really hate all those new uniforms... something tells me they are gonna gank people with DLC costumes... all of them look stupid... wonder woman's breasts are way too big they look like tripple Fs, Superman is armored? against what?
Batman has a breast plate... with bat-cleavage... The joker looks joked out... oh brother why do they do this to comic book characters?

Have you even seen gameplay of this? It looks like it plays almost exactly like MK9 and the animation is just a shite.

Fighting games are where they are because it's a genre that is mainly competitive and if you start mucking about with it too much you'll break it's viability for competitive play. In the case of MK that viability was fairly low to begin with, so i guess they should be free to innovate the shit out of it but it just seems to me that they don't understand the genre well enough. 9 main entries in the MK franchise all in all and the best they've managed is mediocrity. Though my point of view is from the competitive side. I know a lot of people like to pull off the crazy x-ray moves and watch 5-minute finishers while tapping buttons like there is no tomorrow in the incredibly worthless story mode and/or tower of trials. I just don't give a crap about those aspects as they are moot points if the core of the game is shit anyway.

Also you do kinda have a point even if you were trying to make the opposite, has there ever been a good fighter not come out of Japan? I can't think of one...skull girls maybe? Haven't played it myself so i don't know :P
