Mortal Kombat 9 Planned As A Mature Return To Form

Kotaku @ Comic-Con: We sat down with Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon tonight to chat about his latest project, Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe. Once again, we pestered Mr. Boon about the scrapped version of Mortal Kombat 8, once described by the long-term Midway dev as being heavily inspired by the look of Gears of War.

While that grittier, darker version of MK didn't make it far beyond the technology development stages - Boon told us there was little in the way of concept art for the grimier spin on the series - the next next Mortal Kombat may strive for more blood, more violence, more of everything that warrants an M-rating.

Sweet : ) and I think MK vs. DC looks way better than I thought it would. It has some amazing character models.

Really ? Mk's animation is usually off but this one is a stinker in that area .

Besides the DC universe online mmo looks even better ... i mean come on ... a mmo , an open game in the same universe got better graphics than your quite closed fighter ..

Nice to know. MK vs DC looks interesting. I was kind of disappointed in the direction they went, but I will probably rent it sense it is looking decent. I'll wait till MK 9 till I purchase another MK.

Does anybody else think it's funny that there's really a number 9?

Mortal Kombat 9?

When does Mortal Kombat 58 come out? Playstation 5?

Funny. I still remember playing MK1 in the arcades. That was probably before most of you were born when you were all just shots in the dark seeping down your mothers leg.

Cool, then that'll be the MK game I'll buy.
