Mortal Kombat 1 creator teases that a host of terrifyingly familiar faces may be on the way

Mortal Kombat 1 Creator Ed Boon Teases New Fighters

The creator of Mortal Kombat 1, Ed Boon, has hinted that a fresh wave of terrifying fighters may soon join the game’s roster. Boon posted an image on Twitter/X featuring some of horror’s most iconic mascots, such as Leatherface, Freddy, Michael Myers, Jason, Pinhead, Jigsaw, and Chucky. Each horror icon had either a tick or a question mark above their heads.

Of particular interest was the inclusion of Scream’s Ghostface, which adds credibility to rumors that voice lines related to Ghostface were discovered in a recent datamine (source: Eurogamer).

Will these terrifying creatures join the Mortal Kombat 1 roster in time for Halloween? Only time will tell. Rest assured, we will keep you updated if Boon reveals any further information.
