The evidence is piling up that He-Man & the Masters of the Universe may be NRS' next fighting game. Over the latest run of interviews with Ed Boon and staff, there were many allusions to them taking a departure from their renowned Mortal Kombat series, and embarking on something new. After the studios' very successful semi-reboot of their own Mortal Kombat franchise in 2011, it would have seemed a no-brainer to follow up with another MK game. However, the studio (which has always been known for risk-taking) followed up Mortal Kombat 2011 with Injustice: Gods Among Us. Injustice, as it's own fully stand-alone series, has since gone on to become it's own award-winning franchise. While NRS did dabble in the DC comics realm with their crossover game Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe, it was a title that left most fans of both properties underwhelmed (although I did enjoy it for what it was). To accompany NRS' new foray into fighting games, DC Comics has been producing a lauded run of Injustice comics that serve to widen and enhance the new universe(s) that the game takes place in. In April of 2018, it was announced that the Injustice comic universe would be having a huge crossover with - not Mortal Kombat - but The Masters of the Universe franchise. He-Man and The Masters of the Universe could be the perfect follow-up to the Injustice/Mortal Kombat series of games. MotU is loaded with unique and creatively designed heroes & villains, which are all intertwined in their own deep lore. The Sci-Fi/Medieval/High Fantasy realm that this title occupies offers a wealth of opportunities for a studio like NRS, and hopefully the evidence proves true.
