With the recent financial problems that Midway have had, many of us were wondering if another Mortal Kombat would ever see the light of day.
I was a massive Mortal Kombat fan back in the day, but lost interest when the new fighting system and styles were introduced, so I never bought any of them and gave the recent DC tie-in a skip as well.
There is no indication of what they will be doing with the next MK game, but games like Street Fighter IV have proven that an update of a classic game can work out pretty damn well. The good news, is that co-creator Ed Boon recently posted on Twitter the following:
@McCarron U r absolutely right. People want an M-rated MK….dammit we will give them an M-rated MK.
So from that alone it looks like the next Mortal Kombat will be going back to it’s good ol’ super violent self. I just hope that they can somehow give us a Mortal Kombat that will take us back to the glory days of what it used to be.
