E3 Coliseum Guest Ed Boon to Chat Mortal Kombat 25th

On Mortal Kombat Online we're already celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the franchise in our annual Supreme Mortal Kombat Champion voting tournament. At this year's E3; series co-creator Ed Boon will weigh-in on the quarter century milestone appearing in the E3 Coliseum!

Update (June 14th): Boon will be live on the E3 Coliseum stage at 12:45pm to talk about the last two and a half decades of MK! Watch it as it happens right here via the embedded live stream below!

Boon will be a special guest of the 2017 Electronic Entertainment Expo in three weeks, joining Geoff Keighly in the E3 Coliseum to talk twenty-five years of Mortal Kombat, and probably a little Injustice, too!

Fans looking for major announcements may want to temper their expectations until there's actually blood in the water. Injustice Fighter Pack 1 is soon to deliver Sub-Zero to the DC Comics fighter, with Raiden teased to follow. With a lot still to come from Injustice -- just released last week -- it's a little soon to be anticipating anything new from Mortal Kombat.

The E3 Coliseum takes place June 13-14 and while we aren't counting on a new game, it's sure to be a great focus point for nostalgic celebrations! With a movie also in development [read more], there's still hope for something new to mark the anniversary! The event will stream live to Facebook.

Is this the only thing to celebrate 25 years of MK?
As a huge MKfan I hoped they would do a PS4 port for the klassiks or something...but until now..nothing
Come on Ed, 25 MF years, you just cant let it go by!
That would be a little dissapointment...

Cool. He just had a short interview on Innerspace, a program on the Space channel last week or the week before, during an all video games episode.

It's funny, because we plan to have our MK Encyclopedia book done and ready to pitch by July. We will miss this one - which sucks, but we are hoping a completed book will change WB's minds about releasing it in October for the 25th anniversary.

Maybe one day I'll probably make more of an impact than you'll ever fake. Sign the official petition for an MK LORE ENCYCLOPEDIA: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/553/418/526/mk-fans-unite-we-want-an-mk-lore-encyclopedia/?taf_id=13672050&cid=fb_na#

Yeah. They could do a big event with a lot of things for fans, the franchise and every character merchandise! It would be amazing.

whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there.

There are bigger sacrifices one might be asked to make than going a little mad.

Appreciate it. It's a lot of scrambling right now. Would be a shame if they didn't do anything officially for the 25 year mark aside from this.

RE: E3 Coliseum Guest Ed Boon to Chat Mortal Kombat 25th

At the very least, a major announcement about the next MK game in the franchise should be expected. I mean, it's the 25th anniversary for arguably the most well known, notorious and beloved American fighting game franchise of all time. E3 being what it is in the video game community in terms of its importance, I think a teaser or a discussion about the future of the franchise should be happening.

Well, you all got your Tremor now. Can we finally move on?

They did nothing for their 20 years anniversary, if not putting a watermark on some action figures box, don't get your hopes too high.

Injustice is killing the MK hype.

I2 is a very nice game btw.

You'd think for a franchise so keen on reliving the past that there would be a bit more celebration for landmark anniversaries like this and the 20th. Hoping some cool stuff happens this year.

Yes, Injustice may be a good series, but it's killing MK.
Releasing a game every 4 years is a torture.

25 years is a great milestone and achievement but I doubt NRS has anything planned to celebrate it. An MK Encyclopedia would be dope AF though.

They team behind it just made a playable build of the game, maybe it was alpha.


Nothing new from this interview, even fan questions were dumb and stupid.

Thats unfortunate. I was hoping to get some info on the Alpha demo.

I agree that almost all question were dumb af. The interviewer only chose woman.

Loved that someone dared ask about a 3D character thats not Quan Chi or Kenshi. Surprised Ed didnt recoil in disgust.

With that said, I still say Ed seems like the type that is so cool and laid back, someone you could have a couple rounds with and have a good time.

He is just a good mannered PR who proved to have very little knowledge of the franchise he created and seems to be kinda tired of it.

Is just me, or did he looked bored and annoyed during the interview?

RE: E3 Coliseum Guest Ed Boon to Chat Mortal Kombat 25th

Truth be told, I wouldn't be surprised if Ed WAS tired of the franchise after 25 years. He's worked on a number of other games, and got his start in programming the software for pinball machines, but no one really recognizes anything else he's done. Mortal Kombat is a major cultural phenomenon and he must be proud of that, but to continuously work on the same thing after 25 years can get boring.

I have loved the franchise since the first time it ate my quarters in the arcade back in 1992. But I loved it from the standpoint of a player. Ed is a developer. Not only does he have to deal with thre stress of people above him telling him how he should make his game, he then has to deal with one of the worst fan bases for a video game franchise there is...whiney, nitpicky crybabies who spend more time telling him he should drop dead on Twitter than actually praising him or thanking him for his work,or asking him good questions or just generally making friendly comments.

To be honest though, he always looked mad and bored. He's a very stoic and slate-faced individual.

Well, you all got your Tremor now. Can we finally move on?
