Ed Boon Wanted Exclusive Xbox 360 Mortal Kombat Character

Mortal Kombat’s out today, and along with all the other legendary characters the game comes ready with, God of War’s Kratos will be a playable character in the PS3 version. But what about the Xbox 360, couldn’t we’ve used Master Chief or somebody? Well, according to the dev, they had no control over the situation.

That’s what Ed Boon, Mortal Kombat creator, let slip while speaking to Eurogamer, adding the decision not to have one wasn’t one they took slightly, and that it was beyond their control.

“Unfortunately, the circumstances didn’t allow us to make a 360 exclusive,” he said.

“I’m not allowed to talk too much about it, but I can tell you we certainly wanted to do an exclusive for 360, but that’s all I can say. It was not a decision we made where we said, oh, let’s not do one for the 360.”

Xbox 360 gamers shouldn’t lose hope, though, as Ed Boon and his team pay close attention to their twitter accounts to get a feel of what fans are asking for. Master Chief of Halo or Marcus Fenix of Gears of War are two characters being discussed.

“Anybody who’s really knowledgeable about the Xbox video games, the big titles, names like Master Chief from Halo, Marcus Fenix from Gears of War, and any other Xbox exclusive title, is going to come up in a conversation in talking about it. So clearly we’ve discussed it.

But, like I said, it wasn’t something we decided, no, we don’t want to make a 360 version of a character.”
