The lights are on
When NetherRealm's Mortal Kombat reboot arrived in 2011, expectations of the fighting genre were redefined. Now, on the eve of Injustice: Gods Among Us' release, Capcom has commented on one of the biggest discrepancies between their titles and NetherRealm's: story.
The conversation about improved single-player content has been an active one for years. Today though, fans of Street Fighter and brethren were given hope. In a reply on the Capcom Unity forums, Capcom senior vice-president Christian Svensson shared this,
Maybe we'll finally learn why Ryu solves all of his problems with violence (and if he ever washes that red headband). I've always wondered what kind of product Guile uses in his hair. Finally, the biggest mystery of them all will be solved. What does the "M" in M. Bison stand for?

CAPCOM!! Just continue the Asura's Wrath franchise or use that formula from the game!! Asura's Wrath is one of my favorite games of all time (its right under Pokemon Platinum). Asura's Wrath had an AMAZING story, epic graphics, and stunning gameplay! Capcoooom!!! Listen to me!!
STORY MODE? IN A FIGHTING GAME? Pah! That'll never catch on -- Mark my words!
Streetfighter anime for a story would be nice...
What NetherRealm does best is pack in the content and unlockables that keep you playing. Mortal Kombat had a whole host of modes, secrets and other goodies that kept me engaged. Thats what Capcom should take note of.
Mk 9 not only had a good story mode but lots of content to unlock. Unlike MVC 3 that game was pretty weak on content overall.
Don't screw this up, Capcom.
Would definitely be a welcome improvement.
That'd be nice.
