Mortal Kombat games for more than the past decade have embraced horror film icons onto the rosters as guest characters, but there’s still a handful NetherRealm Studios hasn’t gotten to touch yet.
One modder in BeyonderZ recently showed off what they’re cooking up this spooky season by putting Scream’s Ghostface into Mortal Kombat 1, and he’s looking scarily perfect already.
Unsurprisingly, BeyonderZ decided to put the meta slasher over Smoke to give him the knife moves as well as smoke bombs, which is definitely be best fit for what he wants to be doing to you.
If you had any doubts, Ghostface is looking like he’ll fit into the Mortal Kombat cast just fine and might be a sneak peek at what he could end up as an actual character.
Shortly after MK1’s release, Ed Boon did put out what is probably a teaser image showing a mix of horror icons NRS has gotten to before like Nightmare on Elm Street’s Freddy Krueger, Friday the 13th’s Jason Voorhees, and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre’s Leatherface, which did include Ghostface with a question mark alongside some others like Halloween’s Michael Myers.
Though we already know the contents of Kombat Pack 1 starting with Homelander, data miners were able to uncover files referring to who may be coming afterwards to MK1 as DLC, and Ghostface was reportedly referenced within, making his chances look pretty good now.
Unfortunately, this mod doesn’t appear to be available to the public yet, but we can still get a taste of the bloody good time he’ll hopefully provide.
We’re also very interested to see what the modding community is going to be able to do with Mortal Kombat 1 going forward because it looks like they’ve made a lot of progress already.
