Mortal Kombat 9 will be "sick"

"People want an M-rated MK," says creator, who's upping the gore

Fresh from its less-bloody-than-usual outing with the DC superheroes, Mortal Kombat's set to return to its extreme blood and gore roots, series co-creator Ed Boon has revealed.

Posting on his Twitter (who isn't these days?!), Boon said of the ninth MK game: "Motion capturing special moves & fatalities today... they are kind of sick !!

"People want an M-rated MK... dammit we will give them an M-rated MK," his Twitter brain-fart continued, adding,"I dont know where the line is to make MK an AO rated game, but we definitely dont want to kross it."

At one point it did appear that the Mortal Kombat license was to be sold off, but this seemingly confirms that the co-creator is still at the helm. Is that good or bad news, though?
