Although on the plus side, I think that WB would be a lot easier to work with than Disney for character licensing.
Kinda the opposite for me. DC doesn't seem to have any interest in Smash, where's they'd only get representation via MK which wasn't originally their IP. DC will most likely be neutral on the idea as long as it profits them, Ed Boon is the only one who's interested.

First off, Warner Bros owns DC, not the other way around. Second, yes Mortal Kombat was not WB's IP originally, having originally belonged to Midway until the company went bankrupt and was purchased by WB, turned into WB Games Chicago, and was later reincorporated as NetherRealm Studios. But now NetherRealm Studios is a subsidiary of Warner Bros, so this does mean that a Mortal Kombat character is their property to use for licensing. Ed Boon would love to see Mortal Kombat crossover with more franchises because he does want MK to grow and gain more popularity. Sadly he's been rejected by Capcom for working with Street Fighter, but it shows that there's attempts made by the studio for showcasing the series more. The MK games have had several third party characters in them these days, such as Kratos, Freddy, Jason, Alien, Predator, Terminator, Spawn, etc. WB, not being as powerful as Disney, is a lot easier to work with, and let's not forget how Disney treats their property, Sora, in comparison.

So yeah, WB would definitely be a lot more willing to work with Nintendo without hassle to get MK in. But of course that's if they would get approval by Nintendo for getting Mortal Kombat in Smash.

Hasn't Disney already gave approval of Sora in Smash after the full completion of KH3 or whatever tho? I agree if your also explaining the possibility of Disney wanting Sora to come with full Disney references.

Not sure, but that's an excellent question/point to bring up. With MK11 and I guess MKX having been banned in Japan, didn't think to consider whether it also applied to Injustice, but I guess it was still released there. Huh... Helps too that Scorpion was the most sold DLC character of that game. Maybe whoever voiced Scorpion there in Japanese could do so for him if he got in Smash.

Ok , posting this here, what you guys think:


Funny how Ed is talking just about Mortal Kombat
And he goes to talk about Smash Bros for no reason

Its definitely something nice to look into. I feel like Ed Boon is trying to reach contact to Sakurai in his own trolly way.

About those 1-Up arcade machines, is the Mortal Kombat one worth it?

On one hand it has MK 1, MK 2, and UMK 3. On the other hand, it’s like $300.

I think mine was one of the best/worst purchases I've made in a while. I always wanted to play the arcade versions of these games and finding any arcade or any store with them in it is pretty hard for me to find. From what I can tell, these things are close to arcade perfect, so having one is really cool to have. However, for me, I rarely play on it so it just kind of takes up space in my small room, which is already pretty cramped to begin with. Not to mention I bought mine when I was running low on money, so this definitely left a hole in my wallet. But overall, I would say I could of spent money on worse.

But on the topic of Smash, it's crazy to think that in ten days we could potentially see the final character in the Fighters Pass. Of course Scorpion is my most wanted character, but I think with all these rumors and leaks being brought up and shut down almost instantly, I think I'll be excited with whoever is announced (with a couple of exceptions)

Yeah, I think it would be worth getting if I had someone to play the games with or if I had kids to gift them like my parents gifted me and my brother with a brand new NES for Christmas back in the NES days.

But yeah, the price is too steep for me... especially when it’s only three games, although the original Mortal Kombat trilogy are the only Mortal Kombat games that really matter, at least to me... so the price is really because of the arcade cabinet.

I remember sketches in Deception that looked like ideas for a smash like game. That's my opinion, it looked like smash but there were 4 fighters and stuff
