Street Fighter Wusses Out Against Mortal Kombat

Posted on Friday, August 5 @ 08:24:26 Eastern by


The Street Fighter gang has faced off against almost everyone, from Marvel to SNK, and next they're taking on Namco's Tekken characters in a fight to the finish. But not a fight to the death. See, they're too afraid of death. Which is why they're too scared to go up against Mortal Kombat.

Street Fighter Producer, Yoshinori Ono, was asked about a possible Street Fighter Vs. Mortal Kombat, to which he replied:

I actually get a lot of requests for Street Fighter vs. Mortal Kombat on my Twitter feed and elsewhere. I understand why people want it, but it’s easier said than done. Having Chun Li getting her spine ripped out, or Ryu’s head bouncing off the floor….it doesn’t necessarily match.

Ono-san, obviously fearing for the lives of his beloved creations, quickly changed the subject to other franchises:

But I’ve had a couple of dream projects in my head for a while, one being Street Fighter X Tekken, which is actually coming true. Another would be a Marvel vs DC game which would be pretty damned cool if we could ever pull it off. I’m a big comic-book fan.

DC was more than happy to square off against Mortal Kombat. Mortal Kombat was even happy to tone it down and play nice with DC. Why are you so afraid, Street Fighter? And what does this have to say about Marvel? It's like Street Fighter was still mad about Mortal Kombat bullying it around and decided to pick on Marvel which was minding its own business making blockbuster movies. Meanwhile, DC was all like "hey MK, wanna fight about it?", to which MK said "Get over here!"

The end.
