Mortal Kombat 11 Director Reveals How Spawn DLC Happened
The Mortal Kombat series has been known to bring in several surprise characters from outside sources to brawl with the lot from the games. That said, when it was revealed that Spawn was finally coming to Mortal Kombat 11, fans were delighted, and Ed Boon has revealed how that came to be.
In a recent interview with IGN, Boon discussed how the Spawn DLC happened for Mortal Kombat 11. “We have always wanted to have Spawn in one of our Mortal Kombat games,” Boon said. “I’ve heard a number of times that Todd McFarland expressed interest in seeing Spawn in Mortal Kombat. As far as the fans are concerned Spawn is probably one of the most requested characters ever to be in the franchise. He really is a perfect fit.”
The Mortal Kombat 11 director also touched on how working with Todd McFarlane, the creator of Spawn, differed from working with DC. “Both Todd McFarlane’s team and DC have been very cooperative and collaborative,” he said. “Each want to see their characters represented accurately in our game. Because Spawn is by nature a super violent character and is in an M-rated Mortal Kombat game, naturally there were fewer limitations to work with him. Todd did make it clear that he did not want us to hold back, and from that standpoint there were very few limitations put on the Mortal Kombat team.”
