Mortal Kombat X News and Updates
Less than an hour ago, GameTrailers had the chance to interview Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon at this years E3, where the DLC character Skarlet is playable for the first time. During the interview Ed Boon revealed his and Netherrealm Studios' plans for the future:
- The current priority of the team is to support Mortal Kombat 9 (2011) through DLC Characters. The plan is to release new DLC Characters the entire summer, with at least 4 being currently planned. The first two are Skarlet and Kenshi. Skarlet will be available in the next few weeks but no date has been specified. During the interview you can see both of her Fatalities. Ed Boon once again confirms that the number of released DLC packages will mostly depend on whether fan's download them. He promises big surprises with the DLC Characters.
- Ed Boon also mentions that big things are coming up but he cannot talk about them just yet. Somehow the name of Kratos and guests pops up in the context. He also mentions that games like Mortal Kombat would look nice on PS Vita, PSP's successor which means that the door is wide open and we may see a release on that platform at some point in the future.
- When asked about where the team is going from here in the plans for a future game, Ed Boon points out several possible directions. He would love to further expand the Cinematic experience of the game (seen in Story mode). He does not think that we have seen the last of the characters who died in the game. The team also wants to expand into different genres. So, who knows, the next Mortal Kombat might be a new Action Adventure or something completely different. However he confirms that things aren't even on paper yet, so these are really just ideas.
