Mortal Kombat X: Dev Confirms Kratos Won’t Return, Comments On Fan-Made PS4 vs Xbox One Boxart

Mortal Kombat X was recently announced in the form of a CGI teaser trailer, which showed Scorpion fighting with Sub-Zero in a especially gory trailer with a grim ending. The trailer confirmed a 2015 release date although no platforms were mentioned in it.

Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon recently answered some questions from the fans regarding the game. He was asked to comment on this fan-made boxart, which can be seen below, and whether it is official or not.

This boxart showed different cover for the PS4 and Xbox One version of the game. Since the PS4 and Xbox One are usually considered as rivals in the console market, this boxart made sense to show two iconic rivals on each cover. Of course, this was not official as confirmed by Ed Boon, although he seemed to like this idea and commented on how he would have preferred it.

If this WAS real, we could put half the game on one disc and half on the other. That wouldn’t piss people off !

It would be interesting to put Scorpion on the PS4 box and Subzero on the XboxOne box. Hmmmm…

If you were wondering whether Kratos will make its appearance back in Mortal Kombat X, since he was available in Mortal Kombat 9, Ed Boon confirmed that he won’t return as they don’t want to repeat it.

Mortal Kombat X is set to launch next year on the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC. Look forward to seeing more of the game including gameplay footage, at the upcoming E3 gaming expo.
