Series creator Ed Boon is keen for the next Mortal Kombat game to get back to the gory presentation of the originals.
According to Mortal Kombat
co-creator Ed Boon, the next game in the long-running series could be designed as a more mature and graphic game than the recent titles in the series.
Speaking to Kotaku
about the upcoming series collision of Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe
, Boon said that he was keen to get the series back on track and was still eager to create a game in the same vein as the cancelled Mortal Kombat 8
, which had been heavily inspired by the artistic style of Gears of War
Though Boon admitted that there was little in the way of actual work completed on the next Mortal Kombat
game after Vs. DC Universe
, he was clear that the ninth Mortal Kombat
game will strive for more blood and violence.
Of course, the series is getting a bit long in the tooth now and a spate of at best only half-decent sequels
has diluted the Mortal Kombat
name significantly, so whether or not a Mortal Kombat 9
is created at all will likely depend on how well Vs. DC Universe
Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe
will star the full cast of the previous MK
games as they go head to head with a range of characters from the DC Comics, such as Batman and Superman. Personally, we think Johnny Cage versus the Man of Steel is a tad unfair, but whatever.
