Fans of the classic Mortal Kombat games, particularity the ones released on the Nintendo SNES and the Sega Gensis systems, have been clamouring for a re-release of a some sort on modern systems for a while now. A chance of a re-release on the Wii U Virtual Console was the last hope they had, until Ed Boon shot it down today.

Ed Boon took to Twitter to answer a fan asking if there’s any chance the classic SNES versions of Mortal Kombat will make it to the Virtual Console, to which he replied “0.0%.”

He later added that the SNES version didn’t play as good as the Genesis version. Though as said, we would love to hear the story of why.
