    E3 2014: Ed Boon Mortal Kombat X Interview with Giant Bomb

    Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon sat down with Giant Bomb's Jeff Gerstmann to talk about what's being shown at E3 for Mortal Kombat X. The two go into details about the game's "gore tech", the timeframe of the storyline (starts right after MK9 and moves 25 years into the future), the number of characters they're shooting for and who they're considering, character variations, background interactables, etc. Ed does reveal that the persistent online mode is a meta game that they expect players to want to check in and see how they are doing in the game. It is a great interview to watch.



    Check the video out above and keep it tuned to TRMK and follow us on our Facebook and Twitter accounts.

    I think Ed let Sonya and Johnny Cage out of the bag, as far as being in MK X.

    (Regarding fatalities) "Oh, shit. We've never had relatives."

    I watched this yesterday so forgive me if I'm wrong, but didn't Boon say the MKX's story does indeed continue MK9's story but doesn't start immediately after MK9?

    No.
    Ed said that it takes place close to the end of MK9, then take place within a span of 25 years.

    Ed even said it in THIS video MK X takes place after MK9 and jumps 5, 10, 15, 20 years into the future until it gets to 25 years (1:55:52 mark).

    Not the same.
    MK X doesn't take place 25 years after MK9.
    It takes place within 25 years.
    BIG difference.
