NetherRealm Studios Open To Horror Movie Game

Since being acquired by Warner Brothers, the makers of Mortal Kombat have spent a lot of time thinking about other properties.

After developing the 2008 crossover Mortal Kombat versus DC Universe for Midway; the fighting game developer entered a new era of ownership, and a new decade with Mortal Kombat -- a game packaged with Kratos for PlayStation, and Freddy Kreuger as the first downloadable guest character.

The console exclusives may have ended with Sony's God of War mascot, but the proliferation of horror movie icons has continued. Freddy Kruger's nightmare appearance inveitably led to calls for Friday the 13th rival Jason Voorees. His Kombat Pack appearance opposite Predator - another recipe for the expected arrival of Alien in Kombat Pack 2. Whether or not obscure movie trivia connected the Xenomorph to Texas Chainsaw Massacre's Leatherface by accident, or by design -- the fourth guest in MKX was again a horror icon.

The perpetual fixation with horror movie monsters and slashers may be a tenuous link for the martial arts fighter, but the constant has inspired many calls for NetherRealm Studios to break-off their guests into a separate game for movie maniacs! GameInformer asked Ed Boon about the possibility during an interview at the ESL Season 3 Finals. The Creative Director was well armed to answer the question:

"Yes, yes! You know, as we've been accumulating them, that idea has been coming up more and more frequently," he says. "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."

While assembling a cast of horror cinema's darkest death dealers could pose a challenge, the modern era of the crossover has certainly opened up the realm of possibility more than ever before!

The biggest question: Who would make the cut in a movie maniacs fighting game? The bonus round: Which Mortal Kombat character is terrifying enough to turn the tables as a horror fighting game guest? Lets hope your answer is better than Casey Becker's!

RE: NetherRealm Studios Open To Horror Movie Game

Even if some fit as possible guest characters I would not really want MK characters in the Horror Movie Game, but bloody Skarlet, Kabal, Meat or Noob Saibot could be decent guests.

... here's your Subzero, now plain zero.

So we can have a 6 year gap every MK instead of 4? Pass.

If they did something like this, I would be open to it. I would like to see possibly the heroes of the series as well, like Ripley. Not just the big bads.

On one end, i think go for it. So NRS can finally let MK games be about MK characters.

But on the other end, i know NRS is lazy as fuk and the MK series will look more like a hybrid of injustice and the horror game....

MK would always come first. It's more profitable than a new IP and Injustice.

Good. Make the stupid horror game and keep those character out of friggin' MK moving forward.

Well, you all got your Tremor now. Can we finally move on?

RE: NetherRealm Studios Open To Horror Movie Game

That would be a game worth delaying MK11 for!

As for MK guest characters: Drahmin's obviously the most horror-like character, followed by Meat, Havik, Skarlet (perhaps), D'Vorah, Mileena and Baraka. Quan Chi, Shang Tsung and Noob could make sense. Cassie, Jacqui, Sonya, Johnny, Jax, Stryker and Kabal could easily be like Ripley and Ash, as in the kind of characters that fights monsters and killers such as the Alien and Jason. Such characters would be needed, too, imo.

We'd probably get borin' ol' Scorpion again though, as there's no way any of the aforementioned characters could get to face the icons of horror over him. His story would probably be about him mistaking Pinhead and every bald horror characters for Quan Chi, and for a horror-themed redesign, his skull would probably be exposed.

RE: NetherRealm Studios Open To Horror Movie Game

Anyway, who here thinks the Terminator should be included in such a game? The Terminator series always had some horror elements, particularly the first. Plus, the inclusion of the Alien and the Predator wouldn't be unlikely, and it shouldn't require a now unlikely guest appearance in MKX to see the Terminator take on those two.

Another thing is, I don't believe the game would have to be limited to horror movies. There are characters from horror-themed Video Games and TV series that'd work well, imo.

One of those "Eh...whatever.Could be cool". But I would rather have another MK adventure game that most of us have been longing for.

WATAHHHHHHHHH!!!

See, if it's a side team making it then I'd be down but if it comes in between the MK and Injustice cycles then yeah, pass.

Not a lot of excitement here.

Anyway, as much as I like MK, I think the next game can wait. I want that horror-themed fighting game!

RE: NetherRealm Studios Open To Horror Movie Game

Would it be crazy for them to just make A Horror Fighting game with original characters based of the horror Icons of the 80's, 90's & 00's like Capcom did with Darkstalkers basing the characters off of the horror icons of the 30's, 40's & 50's

What's wrong with a fighting game featuring actual horror icons?

Although, I wouldn't mind a few original characters, nor a new take on certain horror icons like Dracula, whose characterization isn't as strictly defined as someone like Freddy Krueger.

Never said anything was wrong with that. However I do think it would be easier to get done.

The characterization doesn't have to be like Freddy but they can create there own dream demon murder. Again like Darkstalkers Demitri is clearly based on Dracula thus he is a vampire but beyond that they don't have much else in common.

In reply to Chris444

Screw easiness. They can't get the rights for enough horror characters, then they shouldn't bother making an horror-themed fighting game in the first place.

They can have their own versions of classic horror monsters/villains like a Wendigo alongside the horror icons, but we must have horror icons. If not, then introduce new horror-themed characters in a new MK game, instead.

I could see Pinhead from the Hellraiser series with the cube as his weapon.

Yes, Helraiser cenobites! The fat one lobbing cds and the chattering teeth thing. Ripping post fatality.
How about 'the Thing' as a contantly changing blob with dog heads for punch and spider leg kicks.
I'm scaring myself.
