Ed Boon teases Mortal Kombat vs Street Fighter is in negotiations
Editor's Note: I wish this was a thing....
Mortal Kombat vs Street Fighter might be in the works. Ed Boon posted a tweet about a meeting one of Capcom's staff, Seth Killian, to discuss about a crossover of Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter.
It's possible that Ed Boon is trolling, but this year is not only Mortal Kombat's 20th anniversary, but also Street Fighter's 25th anniversary. Even Yoshinori Ono thought it is possible to make the crossover, but it's really hard to pull it off, like a head being decapiated. What are your thoughts, guys? Will it be a dream come true and will this work?
Wow what a great post. This is why I read this blog. This is very actionable and something a real business would do! I love it!
That would be epic and has to be M rated if not were going to have another MK VS DC flop.
Don't be so sure about Ryu. He can channel the Satsui no Hadou so much he turns into Evil Ryu. Chun Li would like nothing more than to annihilate M. Bison for killing her father, so she has just as much killing potential. When it boils right down to it, any Street Fighter character has that killing potential. It's just based on the urgency to kill.
i know, but compared to the characters of Mortal Kombat they are like the nicest people ever existed. Ryu is too goodhearted to do a fatality, and Ken as well, and Chun Li, they just can't look sadistic.
just give me a M rated fighter with my two favorite fighting games and we can call it a day and bought on day one. the new MK was fantastic and I only bought it once. SF4 is great but come on how many ver are there now? and I think it speaks for itself this cross over bridges north american gamers with japanese gamers like never before. sick shit if this is true.
I think it'll work for Street Fighter fans, but I have a hunch MK loyalists will be disappointed. MK is a little more sluggish (for lack of a more accurate word) in its play style, and I don't know if the more "technical" aspects of either game will carry over well to the other. I'm sure that the game's going to turn out well, but at the same time the speculation and scrutiny on this idea is pretty warranted, since it runs the risk of discarding something from one side of each roster -- then again, that's the nature of the beast with crossovers. All I know for sure right now is that I'm definitely intrigued.
Oh geez I really hope to see some Haduoken fatalities.
You know what I think this game should have if it were to be made? It should look like MK at it's core, but have some kind of "filter" you could turn on to make those awesome SFIV visual effects show up over everything, and it should allow you to set how much blood you wanted in the game, from usual MK levels to none, and everything inbetween, and finally an option that allows you to turn Fatalities on an off. This way, the player would be able to choose just how much from each universe they wanted in their game.
oh yeah something like his wrath of raging demon evicerating the other character
Bring back the Hara Kiri! XD
Why am I broke?
Oh, right, because I don't have a job and am too lazy to search for one.
But even if I had a job, things like this make me broke.
Akuma Wins.....FATALITY!....cant you just see it?
What if we could have... TWO games. Think about it: One that follows the bloody, slightly more simplistic Mortal Kombat called MK vs SF. AND a 2nd game that follows the fast paced and technical Street Fighter style called SF vs MK. Please, Ed Boon? If they can do it with Capcom and Tekken, why not here? Fans could choose their favorite style!
Chun-Li fatalities? TAKE MY MONEY!
I really hope this comes to fruition. It would be an amazing game!
Oh, and the Super Ultimate Extravagant Street Fighter Tag Team v.s. Mortal Kombat with Puzzle Kombat mode Ultra Hyper Turbo Deluxe Arcade 3D Edition with DLC of $5 per character!
these guys arent trolling, they arent idiots either. (except for mk v dc that was just horrible). they do things like this because they know it will get coverage online and they want to see what people will say about the possibility of such a game coming out. so keep in mind everyone that when a tweet or email or whatever gets "leaked" is just pure bullshit. its done deliberately to get a response from the community. but if its real and we get a SFvMK or CvMK and its a worthy title, then thats awesome. but if its just trash, then i get another one of these. so...its a win for me either way :D
