Ed Boon Hints at Mortal Kombat 9

Recent tweets from “Mortal Kombat” creator Ed Boon have implied that he’s working on the next direct entry in the series, Mortal Kombat 9.  Boon’s comments are the latest in a series of tiny pieces of evidence that a new MK is in the works.  Before now, two actresses, Dana Lyn Baron and Brenda Barry, have voice acting credits for “Mortal Kombat 9” on IMDB playing Sonya and Kitana respectively.  Dana Lyn Baron also mentioned her role in the game in a blog, which has since been taken down.

Now, acting credits are one thing, but playful musings from the series’ creative mastermind is much more intriguing evidence.  First, Boon tweeted; “9 + 25 = FALSE.”  The statement is cryptic, but G4 has a theory as to what it may mean.  If “9” is “Mortal Kombat 9”, then “25” may refer to rumors that the game is under already development and will be ready for this holiday season.  Then, more recently, Boon also tweeted; “Here are those MK9 beta codes I promised you: TEERH-ONRUS-TNUBT-NO Hope you enjoy the beta! Just kidding…I ain’t got shit. ; )”  Nothing really to say about the comment, but Boon’s casual and repeated reference to the game could be seen as a sign in itself.

So, is there a new MK or not?  Honestly, there’s no way to know for certain now, but it’s safe to say that if the game is in development and as far along as rumors indicate, then there will definitely be news about it in the near future, most like at E3 next month.

    gawd I wish they tried to improve the original idea of using real actors, not this 3d crap, they really should try to work on something like that to this generation

  2. @shingo yabkui

    they can’t use real actors because its too expensive and takes alot of time

    Mk9 is in production because Hec tweeted that it was his favorite game so far

  3. id like to see the real actors back in mortal kombat aswell. The graphics were incredible and the layout so realistic. It was as if Johnny Cage really was upercutting peoples heads off!!

  4. It was confirmed just a few days ago that MK9 will be at E3, so that’s fantastic news.
