Boon: Mortal Kombat Sequel Needs Innovation Not Just New Characters

Posted on September 6, 2012 AT 03:57am

Mortal Kombat developer NetherRealm has revealed that work on a sequel to 2011′s Mortal Kombat has not yet begun, but when it does it will need to do more than just add new characters and moves.

“I don’t think we could take the approach of doing the same thing but adding new characters in our next Mortal Kombat game. We definitely want to do something new with it, we feel we have to introduce something into the mix,” NetherRealm’s Ed Boon told CVG. “If you introduce another edition of your game on the same console, you cannot provide a radically different experience. I’m sure, if we were to do a new Mortal Kombat game on next generation systems, I think we would be able to provide dramatically different experiences.”

The major question is does the team have enough in it to innovate the franchise? What would you like to see added or changed in the next game? Let us know your thoughts and ideas in the comments below.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream.
