Cross Over

  • Could There Be a Killer Instinct Mortal Kombat Crossover?

    If you try to pair fighting games, Tekken and Street Fighter go quite well together, and this has lead to crossovers in the past. For Mortal Kombat, the best pairing would definitely have to be Killer Instinct. Both games offer a slightly more brutal approach to fighting, and according to Ed Boon, the idea of a Killer Instinct and Mortal Kombat crossover would be a good idea.

    On Twitter, Ed Boon mentioned 'I loves me some KI but a crossover would have to be Xbox exclusive.'

    Funnily enough, Phil Spencer later tweeted in reply to state that he 'loves' the idea too. Well, right there we have the two men that could make a real crossover happen, and they both agree on the idea.

    Whether or not this was a little marketing ploy by both Netherrealm and Xbox is hard to say, but we wouldn't be surprised if a Killer Instinct and Mortal Kombat crossover title was now in the works. Because Killer Instinct is Xbox exclusive, the crossover would also have to be Xbox exclusive, which is a bit of a shame because Mortal Kombat has always been available on multiple platforms.

    With that being said, with Xbox's recent adoption of Windows 10, it's likely that a future crossover would also be available on Windows 10 PCs. Unfortunately we doubt we'd ever see the game reach PlayStation and that's if it ever did come to light at all anyway.

  • Akuma From Street Fighter will be in Tekken 7

    A brand new trailer has been released for Tekken 7 and it showcases a new addition to the Japanese arcade version of the game. In the trailer, Akuma from Street Fighter is showcased as a character, suggesting that he will soon be added to the Tekken 7 roster. Whilst this trailer is aimed for those who play the Japanese arcade version, it's likely that Akuma will come to Tekken 7 once the game gets a worldwide console release.

    It's very common for fighting games to include guest characters from other games, TV shows or movies so seeing Akuma in Tekken 7 would be awesome. Akuma should have a move set that is very similar to his move set in the Street Fighter franchise so when you're playing him, it really "feels" like you're playing the real Akuma. Interestingly, even though Akuma is coming to Tekken 7, he has not been announced for Street Fighter V.

    Akuma will be added to the next Japanese arcade Tekken 7 update, which has been named Fated Retribution. On top of the inclusion of Akuma, the update will add some graphical improvements and some other currently unannounced content.

    So far Tekken 7 only has a planned release date for PlayStation 4 in Japan. Release dates for other consoles and regions have not yet been revealed by Tekken's publisher and so far there's no solid confirmation that it will even come to other countries at all. We'd expect that Tekken 7 would most likely make it to other regions at some point following the Japanese release.
