Co-creator of the series Ed Boone found out The fascinating backstory in a recent interview. When developing the source mortal Kombat Set in the 1990s, Boone and his team wanted to create a Van Damme-centric fighting game featuring the action star at the height of his popularity. However, they could not get Van Damme’s approval at the time.
Over the next few decades, Boone repeatedly tried to sign Van Damme to continue mortal Kombat headlines but failed. Boone described it as “a whole moment thirty years in the making.”
We actually wanted to see the words ‘Van Dam’. Bloodsport was big, and so was Universal Soldier, I think. So we called his people, and we were like, ‘We want to do a match based on Van Dam,’ and I don’t know if he turned it down or just didn’t get around to it or something.
With his introduction as Johnny Cage, Van Damme joins the cast of mortal Kombat Characters like Scorpion, Sub-Zero and Raiden. Fans can finally pit Cage in Cole Van Dam against the other iconic fighters when Mortal Kombat 1 Launches.
