Ed Boon memes on Mortal Kombat and Injustice fans

By Sean Lawson,

Ed Boon enjoys teasing the loyal fighting game fanbase, be it through his short sarcastic tweets, or the tiny updates he puts out about Mortal Kombat 12 or Injustice 3 — and once again Mr Boon is on top form memeing the fanbase.

Fighting game enthusiasts are excitedly waiting for the announcement of either Mortal Kombat 12 or Injustice 3, two incredible fighting franchises — both of which also landed on our best fighting games list — and yet, Ed Boon can't help but meme on this loyal fanbase, responding to comments in a short, dry, and sarcastic manner that gave us a giggle.

Ed Boon just loves to meme on his loyal fanbase... and we love it.Ed Boon loves to meme on his loyal fanbase... and we are here for it.

Ed Boon teases Netherealm's next project will be either Mortal Kombat 12 or Injustice 3

While hosting a Q&A on Twitter — one that Boon jokingly said would cost $8 — Boon was asked an onslaught of questions from the fanbase eager for some news on either the Mortal Kombat series or the Injustice series. We can already assume that the next game announced from NetherRealm will be Mortal Kombat 12 or Injustice 3, the studio's two biggest IPs and the two games in dire need of a new instalment. Despite knowing this, Boon couldn't help but meme a fan's question for a "hint" to the next game.

Responding to Twitter user GuiLeena who asked: "hint for the next game?" Boon swiftly said: "I3 or MK12," shutting down the question in typical Ed Boon fashion. We gained no information from the tweet that we weren't already aware of and Boon knows this. So, we are right back to where we started, twiddling our thumbs until NetherRealm announces either a new Injustice or Mortal Kombat game, and we don't how much longer we can keep waiting to find out. Please Boon, let us get hyped for the next game in either franchise!

Injustice 2 1Would you be choosing Harley Quinn as your main in Injustice 3?
