Kotaku sat down with Ed Boon yesterday at Comic Con and got a great bit of information with regards to the next Mortal Kombat game. They are reporting that Ed said that Mortal Kombat 9 is already in the early planning stages and is looking like it'll be a return to the dark and violent roots we're all used to with Mortal Kombat.

While that grittier, darker version of MK didn't make it far beyond the technology development stages — Boon told us there was little in the way of concept art for the grimier spin on the series — the next next Mortal Kombat may strive for more blood, more violence, more of everything that warrants an M-rating.

It sure sounds like the plan is to revert to the earlier "Gears of War" influenced style that was scrapped when the DC deal finalized.

While it is still very early to be talking about the next game, we hope to hear more solid information about this in 2009.
