Could Mortal Kombat vs Street Fighter actually happen?
Could Mortal Kombat vs Street Fighter actually happen? We know gamers want it. We know Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon has expressed interest, as has Yoshinori Ono.
And most recently we have a tweet from Ed Boon to Capcom's Seth Killian, hinting about a MK vs SF meeting.
Boon tweeted, "Looking forward to our first MKvsSF meeting. 1st order of business: MKvsSF or SFvsMK. ;)"
Now in all honesty, this was probably a joke, but is it THAT unrealistic to expect a Mortal Kombat vs Street Fighter crossover fighting game? These days, anything is possible.
It's not like Mortal Kombat hasn't been been featured in a crossover game. Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe was released in 2008, though many would agree it was a subpar game. The game removed Mortal Kombat's traditional gore to get a Teen rating. If a MK vs SF does happen, it's good to know Killian supports the M rating.
"Rated M game or GTFO we don't need another MKvsDC lol," Killian joked back.
Crossovers for the Street Fighter franchise are nothing new, however. It has been featured in a ton of Versus series like Marvel vs. Capcom, Street Fighter X Tekken, and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, to name a few.
What could be keeping Mortal Kombat from a crossover with Street Fighter is perhaps the game's brutal combat. Mortal Kombat is known for it's gory fatalities and more brutal fighting, while Street Fighter is a little less aggressive.
While the tweet from Boon was most likely a joke between industry friends, the possibility is always out there - as is the support from fans who have been dying for a crossover game between the two.
