Ed Boon on new Mortal Kombat


The people over at CVG had the oppurtunity to speak with Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon. What he had to say about his next entry into the Mortal Kombat series is more interesting than your average Mortal Kombat game.

Ed Boon explains, in very little detail, that his next game “is going to be a serious Mortal Kombat”. He mentions that the game will be “a lot more realistic-looking… we’re not going to joke around in this one, it’s not going to be like jokes”. It will be “a lot grittier, dirtier” than previous titles. Ed says he will be starting from scratch, but reassures the masses that the game will still be a fighting game, but “after that anything can go”.

Here is what else he had to say:
“We’re not putting any restrictions like we HAVE to keep weapons or we HAVE to keep fighting styles and stuff like that… we’re going to… try to introduce as many new characters as possible, new features, new stuff like that and take advantage of the amazing presentation, graphics that all of a sudden you can do, things that are a lot more real.”

He also mentions trying to take advantage of the PS3 motion sensing, but also the hardware of the new console generation in general and “do the most we can with them” and that the game probably won’t be released until the end of 2008. Probably meaning the game will release on 360 and PS3 like most MK games do.
