While speaking to Game Informer
about older Mortal Kombat
projects, series creator Ed Boon unveiled one installment of the which never saw the light of day: A co-op action adventure game subtitled Fire & Ice
. "When they finished [Shaolin Monks
]," Boon explained, "the guys at Paradox were gonna do another one called Fire & Ice
. It was gonna be a co-operative Scorpion and Sub-Zero game."
We're not sure how the game's writers would have navigated the series' canon to make this union possible (don't those two, like, hate
each other?), but we're disappointed nonetheless. To think -- if someone had asked us what our favorite co-op Mortal Kombat
game was, and then asked what our favorite 1980s German ski film
was, we could have just given them a single, satisfying answer.
