IGN - Lucy and Tristan discuss the 10 horror heroes and villains that should join NetherRealm's fighting roster.
American Psycho would be a dumb choice
American Psycho isn't a horror movie either.
Ash from Evil Dead/Army of Darkness
I'd like to see Freddy Creuger return for some Freddy Vs Jason gameplay, but that aside, Terminator, Ash from Evil Dead, Leatherface... I'd actually like to see the creature from the original jeepers creepers too. His fatalities would be interesting as they would be performed with the interest in taking and preserving specific body parts.
The Jeepers Creepers gargoyle would be an awesome choice. Hell, you could even make a level based on the place he kept the bodies.
This would be completely pointless... I've been saying for almost two decades now that there needs to be a fighting game that has all the villians from the horror type movies... Michael Myers, Jason, Freddy, Chucky, Scream Mask, Poltergeist, The Blob, Cujo, Carrie, Leprechaun, Pinhead, PumpkinHead, The Puppet Master, Leatherface, etc...... the list could be virtually endless.... Movie villians from the horror genre deserve their own fighting game from the ground up... They don't deserve to be DLC... They deserve their own game!!! The possibilities would be endless and could open up a huge revenue stream for the companies involved.
Amen to that
Agreed, I get the feeling that netherrelam may be using this DLC as a trojan horse to try and pitch it to warners, they hold the rights to pretty large stable of horror icons as is.
I think while that would be nice, unless it was produced by a very capable developer, it's safer to have these characters feature within the preexisting fighting engines of good games like MKX, thereby vastly reducing the risk of having a brilliant, and large cast of horror villians, encapsulated within an absolutely rubbish fighting game. It's all too easy to see how that would happen, as most licensed fighters go to companies like Cyberconnect. The titles they produce, like the Naruto games, are serviceable fighters for fans of the characters, but generally terrible as far as competative play goes due to the lack of balance and depth to their mechanics.
