Ed Boon is counting down to something on Twitter - Is it a new Mortal Kombat? Injustice? Or something else?

NetherRealm Studios' Ed Boon has started a countdown over on Twitter that may be leading up to the company's next game reveal. The Mortal Kombat kreator has now sent out three cryptic hints, each of which unveiling a number descending from 29.

The first tweet asked for the square root of 841, which comes out to 29. The second asked for the number of days in (non-leap-year) February, which is 28. Today's tweet simply linked up a video clip from the television show, The Simpsons, which ends with the number 27.

If Boon continues this countdown, it should end right around June 2. A recent rumor suggests that a sequel to the DC Comics brawler, Injustice: Gods Among Us, may currently be in the works. However, back in February of this year, star of the 24 television series, Keifer Sutherland, mentioned on Twitter that he recently concluded work on a Mortal Kombat title.

Whether NetherRealm Studios is working on either game or something completely new is still yet to be revealed. We'll just have to wait until the end of Mr. Boon's countdown to see what they have in store for fans.
