Is Mortal Kombat Creator Ed Boon Counting Down To Something?


Mortal Kombat and Injustice co-creator Ed Boon has begun to post teases on his Twitter feed for… something. Earlier in the week, Boon began making tweets that seemed like a countdown to the week before E3.

On May 4th, Boon tweeted, “Square root of 841.” That works out to 29.

The next day, on May 5th, he posted another tweet: “Question: How many days in (non-leap-year) February?” The answer to that is 28.

A day later, IGN reported the story, and Boon linked back to it on Twitter, joking, “I just wanted some math help from the twitter-verse!”

In related news, Boon has been very vocal about Powergirl being included in a new Injustice game. On May 6th, he tweeted, “What Supermove would players have liked to see for her?” along with a link to Powergirl’s Wikipedia entry.

A fan tweeted at Boon saying they were disappointed that she wasn’t included in Injustice: Gods Among Us, to which Boon replied: “In THIS version! ;)”.
