Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon says that he “would love to see” a Mortal Kombat character added to Smash Ultimate

Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon, in a D.I.C.E. Summit 2020 interview with Shacknews, was asked about the possibility of a Mortal Kombat character, such as Scorpion and Sub-Zero, getting representation in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Boon said that “for me personally (I can’t speak for all of Warner Bros or anything), that would be kind of like a stamp of approval. It’d be like being part of the gang and all that stuff. I would love to see that. That would be a really cool thing to see”.

    1. Bayonetta feeds you to a demon
      Joker slashes your necks with graffiti splatter instead of blood coming out
      Ridley explodes you on a ship
      Fire emblems impale you with a sword.
      Luigi sucks you up

      Im pretty sure another gruesome final smash wont hurt….

      1. Not to mention a certain secretary who literally builds you into the walls of a structure meant to last for at least one lifetime

        1. Mr.Krabs with a mustache

          “ Ridley explodes you on a ship
          Fire emblems impale you with a sword.
          Luigi sucks you up”
          These aren’t even gruesome considering it’s smash

      2. I don’t think they’d have a problem implementing a Mortal Kombat character into smash (see: Injustice 1 & 2) but I hear Mortal Kombat’s presence in Japan is pretty non-existent. Someone can correct me if I’m wrong, but that always seems like large, LARGE, hurtle to jump. Either way, I think it’d be cool to see. Cool character options and a very iconic franchise.

        1. It is true that no new Mortal Kombat game has been released in Japan since 9, but the first games are cult classics and would be great if they based a character from those games

      3. that would be awesome.
        a ninja would be great or … Raiden :-)
        there are a lot of great charackters outhere.
        saddenly there are to much of FE
        Bionic Commando, Bonanza Bros, Jimmy or Billie, Ninja Warrior or the pink guy withe the star mask from nintendos wrestling :-)

        1. I think that was Starman? But hell yes, for years I have been saying (prior to Inciniroar), they could scratch off both another classic NES character and a wrestling type fighter if they added Great Puma from Pro Wrestling. Or just pull a Bowser Jr. and included all of the wrestlers from it as alternate skins.

      4. Scorpion would be great. As far as other generally M-rated franchises, Doomguy is probably going to happen, but man I would vastly prefer Duke Nukem over him. Now a days not so much, but late 90s/early 2000s, Duke was much more of a “Nintendo icon” then the Doom franchise was and I believe had the most “exclusives” released for Nintendo platforms. Also would be just such a more fun personality to implement into a character.

        Alexandra Roivas from Eternal Darkness would also be a sick pick from a Nintendo owned IP.

      5. They already announced this is the final DLC and the characters have already been chosen. So my guess is this isn’t just talk. I think he wants us to guess which character. My guess is Sonya or raiden.

        1. Sony? The way I see it, every video game company either wants to kill Nintendo or kiss Nintendo… except Microsoft, they want both.

          If we get a Mortal kombat rep, I think it should be Scorpion. I still think only mascots and protagonists should be the first characters to represent IPs in Smash. Sans is a mii costume so I don’t count him. I don’t think Smash needs a Mortal komast rep, but maybe people who still want a crossover between Mortal kombat and Street fighter will shut up.
