by Roy Arkon on Oct 14, 2021 :: 0

On the way to the 30th anniversary of the Mortal Kombat series, and as a continuation to the the Scorpion GET OVER HERE! story by Ed Boon, the man and the legend shares more original MK MK games stories. Those are related to the voice acting in the games, not just for Scorpion's Spear move but for other characters as well.

And in that same Twitter thread, Boon also shares that Guinness Book of World records recognized his "GET OVER HERE!" and "COME HERE!" lines for Scorpion as the “longest serving video game voice actor” in 2010.
Check out the full thread via either Tweet.

The Moment Scorpion's Iconic Spear Move Was Born

by Roy Arkon on Oct 12, 2021 :: 2


Next year, on October 8th, 2022, it will be the 30th anniversary of the Mortal Kombat franchise, when Mortal Kombat 1 was brought into the Arcades and changed the video games world forever on October 8th, 1992. However, 1991 was the year in which Ed Boon, John Tobias and the MK started working on the game. As this year, 2021, marks the 30th anniversary for the creation of MK1, Ed Boon decided to celebrate the occasion by sharing an insanely rare behind-the-scenes footage of the creation of Scorpion's iconic Spear move for that game, with Denial Pesina of course portraying Scorpion and performing the move, while Boon and Tobias talking in the background and giving him guidance.

Boon then goes on to give the full story of the creation for Scorpion's Spear, like what was the design philosophy behind and what were the technical difficulties behind it, and gives it a very long Twitter thread:
Boon then finishes the thread (no pun intended) that he hopes to share more rare behind-the-scene footage as we get closer to the 30th anniversary of the MK series.
Of course, Tobias doesn't stay behind and gives his side of the story, how Boon's Spear idea didn't go well with Tobias' ideas for both Scorpion and Sub-Zero as it wasn't a fire themed move, while Sub-Zero of course used Ice themed moves.
Yep, it was indeed a fantastic idea. And of course, Scorpion had the Toasty Fatality, and eventually ended up using fire themed special moves mid-match as well in later games. So everything went just perfect :mrgreen:

We can all surely hope that we will see more videos like this in the near future, as we get closer to the the 30th anniversary of the Mortal Kombat series, and perhaps something even bigger and more special at the end of the road.

Origins Of Dan Forden's In-Game Lines Revealed

by Roy Arkon on Sep 29, 2021 :: 0

Dan Forden has been an integral part of the Mortal Kombat series since the very beginning, being the sole music composer up to Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance, continuing to compose tracks all the way to Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate, and appearing out of nowhere with his iconic "Toasty!" line in the games themselves since Mortal Kombat II.

It turns out though, that Forden actually had more then one line in the games. A Twitter user asked Ed Boon and John Tobias what is the origin behind the "Foul Ball" line during the Dead Pool Stage Fatality in MK2, and Boon replied that it is actually Forden's voice, originally being said in a negative context and taken into a positive one.

Then someone else came in to ask what was the Origin of Dan Forden's Toasty line, and that's when a long time MK fan Tabmok 99 stepped in, posting an old video from 2011 with Forden himself answering the question, revealing that it came from taunting Boon during game time with the phrase "You're toast", which got shortened into "Toasty".
Boon of course added one more detail, saying that there are a lot more stories like this from such times.
Those are really interesting stories on how the MK series has been evolved and added all those little things that made it what it is today, and Forden surely use a big part of it in terms of the audio presentation of the series, and in more ways than one.

Ed Boon Shares Mortal Kombat/Twisted Metal Details

by Roy Arkon on Sep 18, 2021 :: 0

Ed Boon, with the hype of a rumored new TV show of the classic vehicular kombat (with a K') Twisted Metal going on, has shared some interesting details regarding both Mortal Kombat and Twisted Metal. First, Boon implied that both him and David Jaffe, director and designer of the TM games, have discussed the possibility of making a Twisted Metal Arcade game back at the days of Midway.

And even more interestingly, Boon reveled that Sweet Tooth, the main character of TM, has been more than once so close to be a guest character in Mortal Kombat games.
Considering that Mortal Kombat 9 (2011) had Kratos, a Sony-exclusive character, as a guest, that wouldn't be out of the ordinary. And maybe it will happen in the future, as we come to know with MK games, everything is possible.

The MK Franchise Has Reached New Sales Milestones [UPDATE]

by Roy Arkon on Jul 26, 2021 :: 0

Right before Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate has been released, Ed Boon confirmed that the previous game in the Mortal Kombat series, Mortal Kombat XL, has sold nearly 11 million copies, making it the best selling game in the history of the series. In October last year, Ed Boon also confirmed just before the Ultimate update for MK11U came out, that MK11U has sold 8 million copies worldwide.

Now it has been confirmed by Warner Bros. Games, as reported via GamePress, that MK11U not only surpassed it's previous sales number, but even MKXL's sales number, by hitting over 12 Million copies sold worldwide in less than two years and a quarter. On top of that, thanks to this gigantic milestone, the overall Mortal Kombat series has reached the astonishing amount of 73 million sales overall, making it the best selling fighting game franchise of all time. Also ,the Mortal Kombat Mobile app has reached 138 million downloads. And finally, the press release from WB Games also confirmed that millions of players still actively play MK games on both consoles and mobile platforms.

Ed Boon also gave his word on these incredible news:

“When Mortal Kombat launched nearly 30 years ago, I never dreamed it would grow into the franchise it is today with more than 73 million games sold. We have some of the most passionate fans in the world and we appreciate the support they have shown us over the years”.

And then Boon came in to Twitter to send a huge thanks to all of the MK fans who have supported over the years.

UPDATE:
Ed Boon came to Twitter once again to clarify an important detail, and that is despite the huge milestone of MK11U reaching 12 million copies sold, it's still not the best selling game in the series yet, which means that MKXL, as of this moment, is still the best selling MK ever, although exact current sales numbers for MKXL are yet to be given. Boon however did state that MK11U is on it's way to be the best selling MK game ever.
These are undeniably fantastic news for the Mortal Kombat franchise, which only keeps growing more and more over time. We will see what the future has in store for the series, but for now, let us all enjoy these gigantic milestones for the series.
