CVG recently caught up with producer Hector Sanchez at Gamescom and decided to touch on an all too familiar subject: Mortal Kombat vs. Street Fighter. The two fighting series often cited as the birth of the mainstream fighting genre have been rumored to join forces several times over the last decade. Mortal Kombat series creator Ed Boon has stated multiple times he would love for the project to come to life.

Hector used the word "inevitable" to describe the game, but stated that it largely depended on the success of the upcoming crossover title Street Fighter vs. Tekken. Though the obvious problems such as which company would produce the game and how Capcom would feel towards Mortal Kombat's higher level of violence would need to be addressed. This is obviously not a confirmation any new progress has been made, but it at least shows the continued interest of NetherЯealm Studios to pursue this title.

The idea for this game was featured in a recent poll on GameFAQs with several other options, competing competitively in the results and bringing in over 20% of the vote.
