Netherrealm Studios' POSSIBLE Horror Fighting Game

It's been talked about but never confirmed. Ed Boon tweeted about it. Its hard to imagine what a story for this type of game would have, or how it'd even play compared to Injustice and Mortal Kombat, but I love the idea of it. Interested to see what people think of such a game, if it'd be made, and their own ideas.

1. Ash (Evil Dead Franchise)
2. Henrietta (Evil Dead 2)
3. Jason Voorhees (Friday the 13th)
4. Michael Myers (Halloween)
5. Freddy Krueger (Nightmare on Elm Street)
6. Pinhead (Hellraiser)
7. The Doctor (Hellraiser 2)
8. Sadako (The Grudge)
9. Dr. West (Re-Animator)
10. Leatherface
11. Carrie
12. Pennywise (It)
13. Chucky
14. Tiffany (Bride of Chucky)
15. Xenomorph (Aliens)
16. Engineer (Prometheus)
17. Ripley (Aliens)
18. Predator
19. Dutch (Predator)
20. T-800 (Terminator)
21. Sarah Connor (Terminator)
22. T-1000 (Terminator 2)
23. A Ghostbuster (Preferably Bill Murray)
24. American Werewolf (AW In London)
25. Pumpkinhead
26. Lephrechaun
27. Dracula
28. Frankenstein
29. Tarman (Return of the Living Dead)
30. Maniac Cop
31. Robocop
32. Candyman
33. Ghostface (Scream)
34. The Creeper (Jeepers Creepers)

DLC/Guest Characters
- Scorpion/Baraka/Reptile (Mortal Kombat)
- Manbat/Swamp Thing/Arcane (DC)
- Burt Gummer (Tremors)
- Wolf Cop
- C.H.U.D. – This would be a dream come true to play as one

I'm kind of skeptical tbh because lets be honest getting the rights to all these horror characters would be an absolute nightmare except for the classics like Frankenstein's Monster and Dracula whom are in the public domain but modern horror film characters on the other hand though...

OT: I agree with GodzillaFan, getting the rights to all these characters would be a daunting taks, but I'm all for this idea nonetheless.

Now on the other hand I can see public domain monsters being used instead if Neatherrealm Studios can't get the rights to ones like Freddy Krueger, Xenomorph, Leatherface, Michael Myers, etc and even then I'd say that's a good enough roster.

-Bigfoot
-Chupacabra
-Count Dracula
-Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde
-Dover Demon
-Frankenstein's monster
-Goatman
-Jersey Devil
-Krampus
-Montauk Monster
-Mothman
-Owlman
-Quasimodo
-Satan
-Wendigo
-Yeti

Just to list a few. ;)

Whoever they can manage to get the rights to I'm up for that too but none the less still extending the roster if they can't get the rights to the rest.

Hey just trying to help in case Netherrealm Studios can't get all the rights to these modern horror film characters. X_X

Also I wouldn't even consider Count Dracula, Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde, Frankenstein's monster, Krampus, Quasimodo and Satan to be cryptids tbh, overall what I'd aim for assuming worst case scenario a mixture of public domain horror classic characters (Count Dracula, Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde, Frankenstein's monster, folkloric/biblic characters (Krampus, Satan) and cryptids (Bigfoot, Chupacabra, Jersey Devil, etc.) who exactly fits horror.

Yeah besides Cthulhu is too big tbh. Agreed with GodzillaFreak. He'd be perfect as the final boss.

If Krampus would be in, I'd imagine it'd be based on the one from the recent film. Something I wouldn't complain about at all and he'd make some pretty cool DLC around the Holidays. However, the idea of just filling the roster with a bunch of public domain characters not based on established versions just seems lame and cheap and not what Ed Boon has talked about.

They've already secured the rights for numerous characters in the last few years. Not every company is as big a pain in the ass to work with as Toho is when it comes to crossovers. The big issue would be getting actors to return to voice roles and give their likenesses. Robert Englund seems like a shoe-in since we've already had Freddy in MK9 and he voices Scarecrow in Injustice 2. However, would Bruce Campbell be willing to do Ash for the game? If they'd bring in Ripley, would Sigourney Weaver help? How about the big one - Arnold Schwarzenegger to lend his voice and likeness to a playable T-800? I imagine getting the likes of Jeffrey Combs back to voice Dr. West (Re-Animator) and Brad Dourif to return for Chucky wouldn't be too much of an issue. Don't think they're that busy nowadays.

It's definitely a dream game, but since there's a big name in gaming that wants it to happen, maybe it will.

Was thinking about it again last night and would love to see the likes of Rick Grimes and Negan of The Walking Dead pop in as DLC as well. Just imagining playing as Negan and crushing some slasher skulls with Lucille puts a smile on my face.

Hope you're right on that. I absolutely loved his design in Doughterty's film and take on the character. :D

You do realize Krampus is in the public domain right? He's actually not a made up movie monster, look it up if you don't believe me.

What the hell does this have to do with anything? I didn't say anything about him being a movie monster or a public domain character or anything. What are you even "correcting" me on when all I said was his name?

And secondly, while I was clearly referring to the Michael Dougherty version of the character for my list, how condescending of you to assume I have never heard of the 'real' Krampus of ancient folklore.

...Man, I don't even know how to respond to this post because I don't even know what you were trying to get across with it.

Sorry man...I didn't mean to come off that way... :oops:

Based off your list being of movie monsters that's what I thought when I read your post so was just correcting you just in case. That and I thought maybe not many people would've known Krampus prior to that American Dad episode and the movie which increased his popularity.

But why? We're talking about what movie monsters we'd like to see in a Neatherrealm horror fighting game. Who cares what I know or don't know Krampus from?
