While Midway have been consigned to the dustbin of history, in the early 1990s, they were gods. Largely because of two games: NBA Jam & Mortal Kombat. Two games that, for all their success, never came together.
But they could have! Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon has today revealed some artwork for a proposed crossover between the two franchises, which would have seen a Mortal Kombat-infused court made available in NBA Jam. With spinal columns, dismembered heads, the works.
Sadly, despite allowing gamers the chance to play as Bill Clinton and Prince Charles, playing on a Mortal Kombat court was a bridge too far for the NBA, who said nothankyou to the whole thing.
