Mortal Kombat is never ever ever coming to the Wii U’s Virtual Console

How would you like to play Mortal Kombat on your Wii U? Perhaps want to give Mortal Kombat 3 a spin with off-TV play. Both of these sound like absolutely fantastic ideas. Sadly, they'll remain just that: ideas.

Ed Boon recently answered a question on Twitter pretaining to the possbility of a Mortal Kombat game appearing on Nintendo's Virtual Console:

For those that don't know, Ed Boon is the co-creator of the Mortal Kombat franchise, so he'd have a pretty big say in the matter. It's important to note that I'm not blaming Boon here; he's just stating that there is a liklier chance that the Stark family will meet up at a family reunion than Mortal Kombat appearing on the Virtual Console.
