Mortal Kombat will not appear on Virtual Console

Don’t expect to see Mortal Kombat on Nintendo’s Virtual Console any time soon. Series creator Ed Boon has officially squished any of that sort of talk, taking our dreams and wishes along with it.

When asked about the future of the SNES versions of the first three Mortal Kombat games, Boon was brutal:

RT @RickyV831 @noobde I know this is a long shot but are there any plans 2 release SNES versions of MK1-3 on WiiU Virtual Console? EB: 0.0%

This is sad news for retro fans, but doesn’t rule out future projects. Boon had expressed an interest in the Wii U GamePad controller back in 2011, so he may still be looking for the right project for the console – it just seems that none of the early games fit the bill.
