The PlayStation Blog sat down with both Ed Boon and The Stig to discuss Kratos being included in Mortal Kombat (2011).

Sorry that was a joke, Ed Boon didn't sit down with The Stig from Top Gear, though that would be a funny one way conversation. Instead he sat down with God of War III director Stig Asmussen to discuss the creative process involved behind putting Kratos into the game.

Not only is the article a good read, but they have a video there as well interviewing both Ed and Stig. Especially don't miss the great little "FAQ" area at the end of the article where they answer common Kratos questions like if Kratos has an ending, Kratos's Stage Details as well if he can take part in Test Your Might. Also "Friendships" are also mentioned in passing?

So what are you waiting for? Go read the article!

One the screens in the article shows a pretty detailed shot of Ermac's alt, even though he's flopping on his back.

This part got me curious [SPOILER]Boon said. “You’re not going to see Kratos do a Friendship … we kept him out of those situations out of respect.”[/SPOILER] Oh? I didn't know they were included.

We don't yet, it could just be an example he used as people would easily understand the context. It's nothing remotely close to actually confirming that, but interesting to note none the less.

Hmmm looks like he ends up using the blade of olympus in his fatality. I was hoping he would swing his blades and cut off the opponents head like he does with the barbarian in GOW cut scenes. Jaffe > Stig Seriously i was disappointed in GOW3 when i heard what Jaffe wanted to do with the series, as far as the story goes. But otherwise GOW3 is awesome.

OMG, this is SO incredibly awesome. This is the GREATEST CROSSOVER EVER! It's PERFECTION. I actually pity XBox owners that will miss out on this at this point. KRATOS' STAGE HAS A STAGE FATALITY!!!!!!!!!! Holy HELL, I jus came in my pants. “It has the best stage fatality we’ve put into any Mortal Kombat game ever,” - ED BOON Yes, people. In his own words.

You know why Stig looks so indifferent to Ed Boon's prattling on about Kratos? You guessed it.. The Stig is an XBOX360 fanboy.

I'm glad SOMEONE made the Top Gear joke!
