Mortal Kombat vs. Street Fighter On It’s Way?

Back in the 90’s when I spent many an afternoon at the local arcade merilly inserting coins and mashing buttons the idea of a cross over between MK & SF was a gamer’s dream come true, yet always seemed out of reach.

Then as games such as Marvel vs. Capcom and SNK vs. Capcom started to come to the forefront the idea didn’t seem too ridiculous.

Years passed untill the recent news of Street Fighter X Tekken reignited the possibility.

The developer behind the new Mortal Kombat game has told CVG that a MK versus Street Fighter game is “inevitable”.

But before you start openly salivating at the prospect of this ultimate dream ticket, steady on – there are a couple of conditions before it can happen.

NetherRealm producer Hector Sanchez told us that the creation of a MK vs SF game “depends on the success of Street Fighter X Tekken”.

Speaking to GamesMaster’s roving reporter Rory Smith at Gamescom, Sanchez also revealed that the idea of a Mortal Kombat-Street Fighter team-up is not entirely new – and that MK series creator Ed Boon originally pitched it over ten years ago.

Still, even with Street Fighter X Tekken looking like a certain winner, there are still obstacles to overcome if a Mortal Kombat v Street Fighter bout is going to become a contender.

“Obviously there are problems with that,” Sanchez added. “I’m not sure Capcom would be happy with Scorpion ripping Ken’s head off.”

Maybe not – but we’d certainly love to see it happen.
