Ed Boon on GDC Giant Bomb Livestream

03/21/2014 :: Posted at 07:26 PM by Mick-Lucifer
Ed Boon discusses classic remakes of The Grid, MKII, and more at GDC.

In what will no doubt go down as one of the finest moments in gaming press; NetherRealm Studios head Ed Boon appeared live on the Giant Bomb stream for the final day of the 2014 Game Developers Conference (GDC). The appearance capped off a mammoth five hours of streaming, now available archived on Twitch.tv [embedded below]. Boon appeared opposite what was left of Midway alums: David Lang (Iron Galaxy Studios CEO), John Vignocchi (Disney Interactive Executive Producer), and regular Giant Bomb host Jeff Gerstmann.

Though only briefly featured; Boon was able to share a few nuggets of general interest. Most prominent among them: an off-shoot reference to the now defunct Mortal Kombat HD Kollection, with specific focus on a remade Mortal Kombat II. There was no discussion regarding the recent news of Kiefer Sutherland working on an unspecified Mortal Kombat title [full story].

  • The Grid: a modernized update subject of inside jokes and mildly registered interest. No plans for a sequel proper.
  • Indie fighting games like Divekick and Samurai Gunn only make the genre more interesting. Notes limited number of fighting game developers and expanding the market. Looking forward to Ultra Street Fighter IV.
  • Guilty Gear and Divekick: interesting alternative fighters.
  • Predicts a future Capcom fighter (Street Fighter, Marvel vs Capcom) will explore similar story mode to Mortal Kombat and Injustice: Gods Among Us.
  • Has discussed a traditional, sprite based Mortal Kombat II "Director's Cut" in the past. May have included embellishments taken from popular arcade myths.
  • Profane objection to invitation to drunken split screen pantomime.

The scrapped HD remake was ultimately supplanted by Mortal Kombat: Arcade Kollection; released August, 2011. Do you still carry a flame for a digitized, HD sprite remake? Share your wildest thoughts on the forums!
