Fighting Fans, Gather Round: Who Wants MK vs. SF?
Okay, so we're already getting Street Fighter X Tekken and Tekken X Street Fighter. But the possibilities are endless, right?
Crossover fighting games are nothing new, and let's not forget that Mortal Kombat has tested those experimental waters as well; you may recall Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe. And while last year's MK reboot met with a bit more success, developer NetherRealm has been looking for ways to branch out and expand the series. They're also planning to attempt new IPs if recent rumors are any indication.
But for a moment, just try to imagine "Mortal Kombat vs. Street Fighter" (or vicey versey). The gaming world got to talking after MK guru Ed Boon posted up the following Twitter update:
"@sethkillian Yes, great catching up with you too. Looking forward to our first MKvsSF meeting. 1st order of business: MKvsSF or SFvsMK. ;)"
Obviously, that's not an official confirmation and based on the tone and context, Boon is most likely kidding around. But it doesn't seem out of the realm of possibility, does it? And what do the fighting fans think? Is this something they'd like to see? Or would they rather the iconic MK characters take on a different established roster?
