Boon doesn’t just love “Mortal Kombat;” he’s a huge fighting fan in general. It’s part of the reason he wanted to cross the “Mortal Kombat” universe with another world of characters. If this cross-over is a success, I asked Boon if it might open some doors to a collaborating with another series.
“In a perfect world, to me, I still think it would be cool as hell to see Ryu from “Street Fighter” and Scorpion from Mortal Kombat,” said Boon. “I just think it would be cool. To me, “Mortal Kombat vs. Street Fighter vs. Tekken vs. Virtua Fighter” would be the coolest in the world.”
“The reality is you’re going to have [the other development teams] on the other side of the world,” he continued. “So, who makes it? Who does what? It would be awesome. And who knows what they’re gonna say if this is big. Or someone’s mind is going to open — “Tekken vs. Marvel”? Maybe “Tekken vs. Virtua Fighter.” They’ll just say, screw you, “Mortal Kombat”! [laughs]”
We’ll have more on our interview with Boon later this week. In the meantime, what dream fighting collaborations would you like to see?
