After adding Jason Vorhees, Freddy Kreuger, Alien, and Leatherface to his games, you'd think Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon would make a great horror fighting game. According to a recent interview with Game Informer, it turns out the idea has been pitched around and he's not against doing it!
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."
Man, could you imagine? I think it would be pretty tough to get all the characters people want as well as make it a fun fighting game. For example, it'd be hard to add someone with height restrictions like Chucky, or someone who does most their walking from back bends like the girl from The Exorcist. On The flip side, there's still plenty of untouched characters like Dracula, The Creature From The Black Lagoon, Pinhead, and Michael Myers!
I'm getting excited just thinking about it! Let's hope this one day becomes a thing!
