Co-creator of the Mortal Kombat and Injustice fight franchises, Ed Boon, walked out on the stage of The Game Awards 2018 to present the “Best Sports/Racing Game.” Just as the audience expected a series of nominees the stage’s screen cuts to a flash of lightning and the Mortal Kombat symbol along with a cinematic battle between recognizable characters, Raiden and Scorpion. With a touch of NetherRealm’s brutality, Raiden explodes Scorpion’s head with his bare hands…just to be met with another opponent. The next fighter is Scorpion dressed in his classic garments and he runs to slice right through his enemy.
