Horror movies over the years have left us with a lot of iconic monsters/villains, like Jason from Friday the 13th, or Freddy Krueger from Nightmare on Elm Street, or more recently like the Conjuring 2’s demonic nun who is apparently going to get her own movie. Basically there are a ton of villains and monsters and it seems that NetherRealm’s Ed Boon wants to put them all together.
In an interview with Game Informer, Boon revealed that the idea of a fighting game which pits all the various ghosts, monsters, demons, and villains from horror movies is something that he has thought of before. In fact we’ve already seen some of them in Mortal Kombat, such as Jason, Freddy Krueger, and Leatherface.
According to Boon, “Yes, yes! You know, as we’ve been accumulating them, that idea has been coming up more and more frequently. You brought it up and a few other people have brought it up like ‘why don’t you do a horror movie fighting game?’ Maybe one day we’ll do it.” Of course this is by no means a confirmation, but it sounds like a great idea.
After all with all the gross and grisly fatalities that have been included in Mortal Kombat throughout the years, we can only imagine how “next level” this could get if it were to be purely based on characters from horror movies. What do you guys think?
