Mortal Kombat 9 teased by Ed Boon, again

Saturday, 1st May 2010 22:30 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


Mortal Kombat 9 has been in development for what seems like ages, even though it’s only been about a year now, and it looks like we might be getting our first look at it next month.

According to a report over on TRMK along with creator Ed Boon’s Twitter account and Mortal Kombat actress Dana Lyn Baron’s blog, the game is starting to take shape.

Per Baron’s blog – the post has since been removed:

In September — right before I left for Paris & the South of France — I reprisef my role as Sonya Blade for Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment’s next installment of the MORTAL KOMBAT videogame.

Then there was an article in the Post Tribune of Northwest Indiana on actress Brenda Barrie. Here is an excerpt:

Still, she has side ventures outside of the stage that include character portrayal in Warner Bros.’ “Mortal Kombat 9″ video game, which has not been released yet.

“They gave me a script,” said Barrie, alluding to a facet of her job. It’s all about “capturing authentic movement,” the heralded performer from the Robertsdale section of Hammond related.

“I might get in and out of fight poses,” explained Barrie, who also called Whiting home for part of her youth.

FDMK found that Barrie had “Kitana” listed as her character name on her website’s resume, which also stated that the game is to be released on December 25, 2010.

This was also removed from her site.

Them, there’s a tweet posted by Ed Boon:

“9 + 25 = FALSE”

Meaning of course it will not be released on Christmas day, because, well, that’s obvious, but it may be out in time for it.

Here is another Ed Boon tweet:

Here are those MK9 beta codes I promised you: TEERH-ONRUS-TNUBT-NO Hope you enjoy the beta! Just kidding…I ain’t got sh#%. ;)

So what the hell does all this mean then?

It means Mortal Kombat 9 is not vaporware after all, and that hopefully there will be more shown to us soon.

If you want to try and make sense of all this, because to be honest we have forgotten the whole point of this, head on through the links at the bottom here.

    There is a reason why the company took a dive before WB jumped in and it isn’t because MK franchise was so awesome that company destroyed itself.

    This should have digitized graphics instead of polygons, for a refreshing change.

    Wrong word?

    IF you are talking about graphics to the level of Toy story, Shrek movies we are not to that level yet. Analysts say it won’t happen in atleast 10 years.

    Boon as also posted EEE and DDD on his twitter account which could hint at a 3D MK showing for E3.
    I just hope the next game is a Hard M with fatalities on par with Gears’ chainsaw kills and GOW3′s head decapitation or even better, above and beyond them (Though in that case some of the idiots at ESRB might force the game to censor their work the way Condemned 2 team was forced to remove some finishers).

    I think what Wonko meant by ‘digitized’ is how old MKs used images of real actors instead of simply pixel art.

    nah Wonko doesn’t mean that,
    “refreshing change.” refreshing, meaning new.

    The_Red you are wrong on all that you said because The ESRB does not force any producers to censor stuff yet they gave Manhunt 2 the AO rating when it was the first game to have something like the plier castration that showed the testicles sticking on the pliers. The ESRB did not tell the producers of Condemned 2 to censor any of the kills I seen the interviews and the producers themselves said that they did it at that time because of Manhunt 2 getting the AO rating when that is stupid because Condemned 2 would be just fine with whatever they put in as long as it is not something like the castration with pliers and yet at this time it might get off on the M rating since it has already been done. Another thing that I think is very stupid that you said is that if MK9 had stuff like what Gears of War and God of War 3 had then they might be forced to censor it by the ESRB. Why on earth would that be if it was not censored in those games? You make absolutely no sense on what you say. It just makes me so mad that when this is one of my most anticipated games that people like you were constantly asking the producers if they are worried about the AO rating when it is a game especially these days that would get off on alot as long as they do not have a sexual kill. When I thought that the days of forgeting that nonsense that happened with Manhunt 2 is over here is someone like you saying all this nonsense. Do you have anything better to put on here other then some stupid nonsense like that? The only ones that would cause MK9 to get censored is someone like you if the producers constantly seen some moron posting this kind of nonsense.
