Ed Boon has hinted at possibly celebrating the 25th anniversary of 'Mortal Kombat'.

The co-creator has teased plans for the future of the infamous arcade fighting game and says he would be "surprised" if they never did another one.

He said: "I would be surprised if we never did a 'Mortal Kombat' game again.

"I believe we may have some kind of celebration in store that might involve something that you would purchase, that would be a tangible thing to celebrate.

"'Mortal Kombat' had four people working on it. It was a sound guy, two artists and myself. And I was the only programmer.

"Back in the day, I was the voice of a lot of characters. I was the announcer and I was Scorpion yelling 'get over here'."

The programmer has since voiced Scorpion's battle cries in every 'Mortal Kombat' game and now holds the title of creative director for NetherRealm Studios as part of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.

Ed's latest game 'Injustice 2' is the follow-up of the successful 'Mortal Kombat' and DC comics crossover 'Injustice: Gods Among Us' released back in 2013.

Instead of the warrior monks of the 'Mortal Kombat' franchise, 'Injustice 2' features 40 heroes and villains from the DC Comics.

Ed said: "It's exciting but it's also daunting. There's a thousand decisions to make every week. So I think of myself as steering the Titanic.

"We've really tried to carve out our own version of the DC universe. I think we actually want to keep it a little separate from the movies, because like I said, there are so many representations of these characters. I don't think we want to have any confusion."

By keeping the game separate from the TV shows and movies, NetherRealm is able to continually tell their own story rather than sticking to the narrative of the adapted comic books.
