Did Injustice 2 Have Brutalities?

by Roy Arkon on Mar 2, 2022 :: 6
As you know, Mortal Kombat XL reintroduced the Brutalities as mid-match condition-based Finishers, rather than the long combo-based ones that they were in Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 and Mortal Kombat Trilogy, and then they were brought back in Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate. However, did you know that Injustice 2 also had Brutalities, or at least they were planned to be included there?

As discovered by a YouTuber named Ermaccer, IJ2 had a few, hidden and scrapped Brutalities for 3 characters: Aquaman, Supergirl and Superman, all whom were included in the roster for the IJ2 beta, which means that these were originally planned to be in the game, but then the whole idea was scrapped before the game's release, and these Brutalities were remain hidden in the game's files all along.

As you can see in the video below, Aquaman's Brutality is just leftovers of it that only include Aquaman's winning pose and the opponent's final defeat animation. Supergirl's Brutality, while also remain in leftovers form, can be "manually" billed together again, as it is clear that the opponent's final defeat animation of that Brutality, in which the opponent remains stuck with his/her head and torso in the ground, is supposed to be attached to Supergirl's throw, in which Supergirl throw the opponent high into the sky, causing them to land on the ground, headfirst. And finally, we have Superman's Brutality, which is the most complete one, with the opponent, or at least Deadshot (as he is the one shown in the video), having reaction voice to it. In this Brutality, Superman shoots the opponent 3 times with his Heat Vision, causing the opponent to fall to the ground, seemingly killing the opponent.

As shown with both Brutalities from Superman and Supergirl, it's very clear that these Brutalities were planned to look like the Heroic Brutalities from Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe, as they are indeed Brutal, but not necessarily fatal like the Mortal Kombat Fatalities or Brutalities. It will be interesting to know why these Brutalities were scrapped from the final game, as the idea of IJ2 having this feature is a pretty big deal. In the words of Atom from IJ2: "What a remarkable discovery"! :mrgreen:

All we can do now is wait and see if NetherRealm Studios and/or WB Games ever tell us the answer to this question.

Check out the video from Ermaccer right here, enjoy.

Mortal Kombat (2011) & Mortal Kombat VC DC Universe Added To The XBox Backwards Compatible List

by Gambid on Nov 16, 2021 :: 3
Yesterday Microsoft kicked off its celebration of Xbox's 20th anniversary with a special online event. Part of it was the announcement that XBox is expanding its backwards compatibility catalogue, adding to it a significant number of XBox and XBox 360 titles. The video mentioned titles like the Max Payne games and the F.E.A.R. franchise.

However what it failed to mention was that among those titles are two very dear games to each and every Mortal Kombat fan. And those are Mortal Kombat 9 (2011) and Mortal Kombat VS. DC Universe. You definitely read that correctly the two games have been finally added to the list of compatible games and are now fully playable on XBox One and XBox Series X/S consoles. What is good about XBox's backwards compatibility program is that, if you already own the games, you can just put the disc in and play then.

This marks a legendary moment in the history of the Mortal Kombat franchise as the 4 modern titles, Mortal Kombat VS. DC Universe, Mortal Kombat 9 (2011), Mortal Kombat X and Mortal Kombat 11 have been brought together and are natively playable on the same platform for the very first time. Things were getting difficult, especially for Mortal Kombat VS. DC Universe, which was stuck on XBox 360 and PlayStation 3, while Mortal Kombat 9 (2011) has a PC version in addition which made things a bit more bearable for the fans.

Both games benefit from higher resolution, faster to non-existing loading times, auto HDR, etc.. depending on the console you are using. In other words, they look better than they have ever looked before.

What needs to be mentioned here is however the fact, that both games are as of right now not available on the digital store, so you will need a disc in order to play them.

It is kind of interesting that there doesn't seem to be any information, statement or announcement regarding the release from Netherrealm Studios and/or WB Games.

We are however extremely excited and cannot wait for these games to meet a whole new generation of fans. A bit of a trivia here, Mortal Kombat VS. DC Universe was the last Mortal Kombat game to be released under the Midway banner, so seeing that logo flashing on my XBox Series X sure brought back memories.

I would like to say thanks to MKSecrets member ZXT-92 for the heads-up on this news.

Don't forget to visit our sections for those two games, where you can learn everything about them: Mortal Kombat VS. DC Universe, Mortal Kombat 9 (2011)
