In the latest installment of IGN Unfiltered -- the site's monthly interview show -- Creative Director at NetherRealm Studios Ed Boon stopped by to talk shop.


Over the years, it seems as though there is always one question that Boon just can't seem to avoid: will we ever see a Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter crossover? In this interview, we learned that the MK co-creator is still open to the idea.

"There's part of me that would be like, 'that would be such a cool dream,'" Boon started. "And then there's another part of me that goes, 'there is no way that would satisfy everybody.'"

Boon goes on to explain that even if the game were rated M, it would be difficult to find the perfect balance between the two franchises' styles. Despite this, he would still entertain the idea if Capcom approached him.
