NetherRealm Tease An ‘Unexpected Surprise’

Ah Mr. Boon, we've been unexpecting you.

Ed Boon, creative director of NetherRealm Studios, teased his Twitter followers by suggesting there would be an ‘unexpected suprise’ and it’s not DLC for Mortal Kombat 9.

The Twitterverse asked if the surprise could be ‘Super Mortal Kombat 9 Turbo Limited Special Edition’, ‘Mortal Kombat Mythologies HD’ or more Mortal Kombat 9 DLC to which Ed replied ‘No’.

NeatherRealm are currently working on ‘Injustice: Gods Amongst Us’, a fighting game featuring twisted versions of the DC superheroes. However none of that matters, Ed has now announced an unexpected surprise (which was so surprising it was unexpected), thus creating a surprise that is no longer unexpected and is thus totally expected.

As an expected surprise defies all known laws of the universe, Ed Boon has created a paradox that will destroy the universe in the next few hours.

Sorry about that.

  1. Call of Kombat? Scorpion’s cooking game? Reptile’s dysfunctional Hospital? Shao Khan karting?

    I wonder if Netherrealm will surprise us by doing a game that is the complete opposite of what Mortal Kombat stands for?

  2. I had to read the whole suprise bit twice. Very clever

  3. I’m calling ‘Justice: Gods Amongst Us’ a fighting game featuring twisted versions of the Marvel superheroes, Xbox exclusive.

  4. Hold on, if a developer who exclusively makes fighting games teases a new game, how is it an “unexpected surprise”?

    • It’s unexpected as its known they’re currently working on another game therefore it could not be expected they were working on a second one concurrently.

  5. This article reminds me of something… Oh, yes; Don’t forget to bring a towel!

  6. Tuffcub you literary cad you.

  7. unexpectedly and surprisingly we are forced to lay off everyone and shut down the studio…
