Ed Boon shocked at bad Mortal Kombat vs. DC reaction

Speaking to Kotaku Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon has admitted he expected a somewhat sceptical reaction to Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe. However, he said he was blown away with the reaction most people had after it was initially revealed.

If you’re asking me to put a number on it, from one to ten, I’d have thought [the reaction to MK vs. DCU’s announcement] would have been a four,” said Boon. “Turns out it was more like a nine.”

Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe will boast famous Mortal Kombat characters and personas from the DC Comic Universe battling it out. However, unlike every other MK games in the past this will be the first in the franchise that will not bear a “M” Rating in the US. Instead Midway are looking for a “T” rating, which is the equivalent of a 12 in Europe.
