Mortal Kombat 10 (Briefly) Konfirmed
With an award winning game in 2011’s reboot/revival, a massively popular web series gearing up for its second season, and a brand new film adaptation swimming in pre-production, the bloodiest fighting series in gaming is returned to a level of success it hasn’t seen since the mid-‘90s. And that calls for a sequel.
On the subject of a feature film’s status, GamerHub.TV managed to catch a tiny MK10 confirmation from Mortal Kombat: Legacy’s producer Lance Sloane amidst the hallowed, thickly geeky grounds of SDCC. Sloane revealed the new film has a solid script in place, locked in with a passionate director (Legacy’s Kevin Tancharoen).
Sloane slipped in our first “official” mention of the next Mortal Kombat game while musing on when the most opportune time to release a film would be. “It’s just figuring out the business side of it. When would we do it. When we would launch it. How do we sync up with the launch of the game that they’re working on now? The next game.”
After a short string of knockout moneymakers in Mortal Kombat 9 and Injustice, it’s a forgone conclusion NetherRealm Studios is back developing their brutally entertaining claim to fame. The title will undoubtedly be next-gen, and, if their track record maintains, it will undoubtedly be amazing, bone crunching, eye gouging fun (only gamers and psychopaths get to say that). Really, though, how can the phrase “Next-Gen Fatality” not cause a menacing smile to spread across your face?
