Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat are two of the most famous fighting franchises, and ever since Capcom started experimenting with guest characters from Marvel and SNK (to name a few), fans have wished for a crossover between these two titans.
The Mortal Kombat team really hasn't been shy about bringing guest characters in either, as we've seen icons like Jason Vorhees, the Predator, and T-800, just to name a few, so why hasn't the crossover happened yet?
Well, it turns out it's up to Capcom. In a recent interview with the head of the Street Fighter series Yoshinori Ono, Eurogamer discovers that he was in fact contacted by Netherrealm Studios about it, but the Capcom bosses turned it down.
"It's true that a proposal for a Street Fighter character in Mortal Kombat was rejected by Capcom," he said. "But it wasn't me personally! There were many people at the company that felt that it wasn't a good fit for our characters. I actually met Ed at the Brazil game show and spoke to him personally about it. So it's true - but I didn't make the decision!"
This doesn't mean that all hope is lost, however, as Ono says it "doesn't necessarily rule anything out" in the future.
Which character do you think would be the perfect guest in Mortal Kombat?
