Boon still wants to do Mortal Kombat vs. Street Fighter game, apparently trying to get Capcom's attention

Ed Boon has mentioned many times that he'd love to do a Mortal Kombat vs. Street Fighter game, but it appears his requests haven't been reciprocated by Capcom.

Boon recently said that one of his dream crossover games would be a title involving the Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter characters, but noted "A LOT more has to happen other than us just 'wanting' to do it."

He also included a hashtag in his statement which said "#HelloCapcom?" seemingly implying that his request hasn't been followed up on heavily by Capcom.

It's worth pointing out that both Mortal Kombat 9 and Injustice: Gods Among Us have been pretty darn successful in the sales department, with the former selling close to 4 million units total, and likely outperforming the vanilla release of Street Fighter 4.

Injustice: Gods Among Us held a top 10 spot for three months in a row, according to the NPD, and while collective numbers haven't been revealed, it's clear this game was quite successful in terms of sales.

Capcom has 152 million in cash on hand, which is on the low side, so teaming up with a company who's experienced some very strong sales in the recent past, for a crossover title that people have been waiting for since 1992 probably wouldn't be a bad idea.

It is possible Capcom may not be too fond of the idea of Ryu getting his head ripped off, though. You can hit the jump to read Boon's tweets, which also talks about doing a slasher movie fighting game, and a DC vs. Marvel title.
