    Mortal Kombat is VGA's Best Fighting Game of 2011, NetherRealm Doing Non-MK Project

    Tonight was the 2011 Spike Video Game Awards and Mortal Kombat (2011) was nominated for Best Fighting Game and Best DLC (Freddy Krueger). Mortal Kombat easily beat out the competition of Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, King of Fighters XIII and WWE All Stars to take home the Best Fighting Game of 2011 prize. Unfortunately, Portal 2 beat out Mortal Kombat for Best DLC. You can't win them all, but I'm sure Freddy will now be haunting the dreams of Portal 2's heroine Chell.

    There is sadly no Best Fighting Game of 2011 acceptance speech to show you, as Spike felt the award wasn't exciting enough to unveil on the main show. Instead, the award was just announced it between other awards to make time for more celebrity guests like Charlie Sheen who made it known he was there just because he was paid well to be there. Seeing that Spike is also home to the UFC it would have been a perfect opportunity to have a UFC fighter give the award for "Best Fighting Game" so they could fill their celebrity presenter quota.

    Perhaps the biggest shocking announcement came during the internet-only pre-show. According to GameSpot, Ed Boon was interviewed and gave a few clues into his "unexpected surprise". According to Ed, NetherRealm Studios is working on a second non-Mortal Kombat title, the first being their recently released iOS game: Arkham City Lockdown. Skip to 5:00 into the below video to see Ed's acceptance of the award and mention what NetherRealm Studios is working on next.


    UPDATE 4:31pm: The Unofficial Apple Weblog also caught up with Ed Boon on the surprise release of Batman: Arkham City Lockdown. Boon mentioned that there may be other iOS projects in the works at NetherRealm.

    And this isn't the last we'll see of Netherrealm Studios on Apple's mobile platforms, according to Boon. "Oh, yeah," he told me, "we have a number of things in the works. But nothing we can say just yet.
    What do you fans think NetherRealm Studios is working on next? Leave your thoughts in the Komments.

    Good! Any character that gets his ass kicked by a 1980s rock 'n' roll hair band doesn't deserve to win best DLC! Don't believe me? See the proof below!

    that's a little unfair those guys aren't just an 1980's rocknRoll band. They are also Dream Warriors.

    Re: Mortal Kombat is VGA's Best Fighting Game of 2011, NetherRealm Doing Non-MK Proje

    An hour ago, Ed Boon responded to someone on Twitter, who had pointed him to the Gamespot article claiming that MK will be given a rest from NRS, and asked him to "say it ain't so" This was Boon's response


    "NetherRealm has a number of projects in the works. Not JUST Mortal Kombat. "

    Very nice, NRS did a great job with this MK from gameplay to extras and it deserves to win plus the sales talk... As for the non MK title it's a good thing because the studio getting bigger and this mean better games,quality and more ideas and not recycling games.

    Sadly, I missed it tonight because UFC 140 was on and Spike goofed on their repeat at 10PM. Congratulations to NRS for the win. Well deserved.

    On a side note, Spike is no longer the home for UFC prelims. They were shown tonight on Facebook/ION; UFC 141 will be the last time the prelims air on Spike.

    Sounds to me like the Killer Instinct "rumor" might be true after all. Just a thought.

    Freddy is nothing compared to Chell. Portal 2 all the hizzay.

    And if MvC3 won best fighting game I would have sued Spike.
