First game of the development was originally based on an idea that Ed Boon and John Tobias had of making a video game starring Jean-Claude Van Damme, but as that idea fell through, a fantasy-horror themed fighting game titled Mortal Kombat was created instead. The original game has spawned many sequels and has spun a media franchise consisting of several action-adventure games.
Along with Capcom’s Street Fighter and Bandai Namco’s Tekken, MK has become one of the most successful fighting franchises in the history of video games. As of June 2000, the franchise had generated $5 billion in revenue making it one of the highest-grossing media franchises of all time.
