Mortal Kombat vs. Street Fighter A Possibility?

With the recent reincarnations of the Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat franchises -- not to mention the newly announced Street Fighter X Tekken -- could gamers ever see a Mortal Kombat vs. Street Fighter team-up? Hector Sanchez certainly thinks so. And he's the producer of the upcoming MK reboot.

CVG is reporting that Sanchez not only thinks it's possible gamers will one day be playing a compilation of the two legendary franchises, but that such a product would be "inevitable" provided Street Fighter X Tekken does well -- and that Capcom and Warner Bros. can resolve the franchise's mismatched violence. "Obviously there are problems with that," Sanchez said. "I'm not sure Capcom would be happy with Scorpion ripping Ken's head off."

Despite the hurdles, Sanchez revealed that the idea is nothing new. Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon reportedly pitched the idea for the team-up over ten years ago. With all the fighting crossovers in the past few years, I can't wait until the world's developers band together and finally make a game with every fighter from every series battling it out all at the same time.
