Midway have not been having too much fun lately. They’ve been short of money – $250 million short, to be exact – and their stakeholders would like some of that money back. Good news then for fans of the once mighty purveyor of arcade games – Its latest Mortal Kombat game, the comic-book crossover MK vs. DC has shipped nearly two million copies.
Following this, Midway have announced that a new Mortal Kombat game is in the works, possibly involving yet another seemingly incongruous cross-over. MK vs. Cartoon Network? I’d buy that, if only to destroy Scorpion with a Powerpuff girl.
Perhaps this’ll stave off the embattled publisher’s imminent bankruptcy and allow them to pay off the $150 million portion of debt they’ve been ordered to pay stakeholders within the next two weeks. $150 million? Yeah, good luck with that.
