NetherRealm works on something that is neither Mortal Kombat nor Injustice




The fans of Ed Boon, head of Mortal Kombat, are in luck because it seems that very soon it will present a new license. And is that, the director of NetherRealm Studios has confirmed that the company is working on something that is neither Mortal Kombat nor Injustice. In this way, the company would move away from what has been offered to date and give us a new product that could delight many.

NetherRealm is working on something new

The news has reached us through a interview Ed Boon with Geoff Keighley as part of Summer Game Fest that is being celebrated during these months and we send you his words that came camouflaged between praises to his main franchise:

“Mortal Kombat has become a staple for us, it is wonderful. It is almost like Marvel. You don't expect the latest Marvel movie to come out, they just keep coming. Although we have removed some thorn with games like Injustice and things like that, we have other things in the oven, it's always good to make games like Mortal Kombat. “

As you can see, although Ed Boon was talking about how well the last installments of Mortal Kombat had worked, he dropped that NetherRealm Studios is already working on something totally different from this saga and Injustice. A new title that will allow them to continue removing little thorns that have been stuck for a long time and, of course, we are already turning the matter around to try to guess what it is about.

Fighting game with horror movie characters?

Recall that the team of NetherRealm Studios He always wanted to develop a fighting game with DC characters and that, after the crossover of the heroes of the comic company with the Mortal Kombat fighters, they finally offered us Injustice Gods Among Us and Injustice 2. Well, Ed Boon fans are well known for their love of horror movies and we have already seen some classic characters of the genre appear as Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, the xenomorphic Alien or Letherface in some installments of Mortal Kombat as guests.

This leads us to think directly that NetherRealm could be developing, finally, the much desired fighting game with classic horror characters. So, thanks to this title, we could face the main villains of films like Nightmare in Elm street

, Friday the 13th or The Texas Slaughter, to give examples of licenses already used by the company, each other with a story that linked their mythology and that had large doses of gore.

It's a dream they have so much Ed Boon like many of the fans of NertherRealm's work for years and could soon become a reality by adding other horror sagas like Devil Doll or Dream to those already mentioned. Now, these are just assumptions of this one that speaks to you since Boon has not given details about what it is that they are working on without being a new installment of Mortal Kombat or Injustice and it could be something completely different from our assumption.
