Street Fighter V Producer Reveals Why Capcom Turned Down Mortal Kombat Collaboration

I think Capcom doesn't like the fatalities, they probably hate to see Ryu getting decapped or being ripped apart.

Street Fighter 5 Producer Reveals Why Capcom Turned Down a Mortal Kombat Collaboration

It was a decision made by Capcom as a company.


Capcom has confirmed that there were talks about potentially doing some kind of crossover between its Street Fighter franchise and NetherRealm Studios’ Mortal Kombat games. But the Japanese company made a collective decision to turn down the opportunity.

In a new interview with Capcom producer Yoshinori Ono and Eurogamer, the longtime Street Fighter producer shared the details behind how collaboration between Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat failed to materialize.

“It’s true that a proposal for a Street Fighter character in Mortal Kombat was rejected by Capcom,” Ono says. “But it wasn’t me personally!”

Instead Ono said that there “were many people at [Capcom] that felt that it wasn’t a good fit for our characters.” When pressed for details, Ono said that a “major concern” for Capcom was that the two franchises simply didn’t mix.

This is fair. Street Fighter is more focused on an anime-esque super-powered martial arts world, while Mortal Kombat is darker and somewhat horror-like. However, this doesn’t mean Capcom isn’t closed off from making collaborations in the future.

“We don’t necessarily rule anything out,” Ono says. “We’ve had our share of crossovers over the years – Marvel vs. Capcom, Tatsunoko vs. Capcom… It didn’t work out this time, but Capcom is interested in doing that kind of thing. If we can get something we feel good about, we could move quite quickly to make that happen.”

So even if Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat are never destined to meet, Capcom is well-known for collaborations already and are open to more in the future. Meanwhile, Mortal Kombat 11 is one of the best-selling games of 2019, while Street Fighter 5
recovered from a rocky launch with the well-received Arcade Edition.
