BlackKnight Posted July 19, 2008 Author Share Posted July 19, 2008 Boon scrapped the Gears of War-esque MK8 to focus on MKvDC. I stole this story because of the rather apt picture provided. At last year's Midway Gamers Day, Mortal Kombat co-creator and series overlord Ed Boon talked up the then-unnamed eighth entry in the franchise. Boon described Mortal Kombat 8 at the time as "very dark, serious" and "gritty" take on the series, a back to basics reboot that was free of "vibrant, saturated colors." It was said to be heavily inspired by the look of Gears of War. Obviously, that didn't quite happen; Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe did. Boon said that the down and dirty MK8 was scrapped when the DC Comics deal solidified.The way he talks about a visual style really shows Boon doesn't know what the hell he's talking about. To reiterate my last post, flock Ed Boon. Source: http://kotaku.com/5026290/ed-boon-we-scrap...mortal-kombat-8 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
