    Mortal Kombat VS. DC Universe teaserIn the following video interview Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon mentions that as a kid he remembers “buying the Spiderman vs. Superman comics and that was the coolest thing to me because they never originally existed in the same world. There’s a novelty to that.” This is where last week’s announced Mortal Kombat VS. DC Universe came from.

    The Creative Director on the fighting game, Ed Boon, discusses the unique appeal of crossing universes and how the story mode makes it all make sense.

  • But Mortal Kombat VS. DS Universe is not where it started!

    In another recent interview Ed Boon was quoted saying: “I’ve always been a big fan of other fighting games. I play all of the big fighting games in the genre – Tekken, Virtua Fighter, Street Fighter and so on. I’ve always wanted to cross over with another series.

    So, we actually pursued some crossing with some of these other fighting games but it never really panned out. So when this was presented to us by one of our marketing people, it was something we had seen done before with Capcom and Marvel, and we thought that it would be cool to do a really dark, sinister version of that. So not like a cartoony vibrant approach, our approach was like a dark Batman Begins-style flavour.

    I think the underlying thing that was always a problem was that it was always our competition. If we were to do a Street Fighter vs. Mortal Kombat game, who’s going to develop it, and who’s going to own the rights to it? It’s that kind of issue. I did a couple of write-ups and whatnot on it, and sometimes we’d get really close to it but issues like our representative for the other company left the company for some reason, and that reset the whole thing back to beginning.” — Via CVG
