Ed Boon Says Mortal Kombat/Street Fighter Crossover Would Be Difficult to Make
Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon has said that if Capcom ever approached him for a Street Fighter crossover title, he’d “have to entertain” the idea but although he likes the thought of it, he feels that it might be a difficult crossover to make because of how different both games play. In an interview with IGN, Boon said:
There’s part of me that’s like, ‘That would be such a cool dream,’ and then there’s another part of me that goes, ‘There’s no way would that satisfy everybody.’ There’s different pacing, there’s different fundamentals with both of them.
Boon also said that when it comes to crossover titles like Street Fighter x Tekken, one of the licenses “is going to have to sacrifice something.” “I don’t know if we’d be able to find that sweet spot,” he explained.
If there were official talks of a crossover, however, Boon says his team would have to do “a ton of research with Street Fighter players” first.
