Ed Boon is gonna Ed Boon, it seems. The Mortal Kombat 1 Creative Director is once again teasing fans with potential guest DLC Kombatants for the recently-released fighter. And once again, he’s poking horror fans with those guest characters.
Boon took to X with another cryptic tweet, showing an image of famous horror icons. The image features Leatherface, Jason Voorhees, Freddy Krueger, Pinhead, Chucky, Michael Myers, Ghostface, and Billy the Puppet from Saw. Jason, Freddy and Leatherface have checkmarks over their faces (given their past inclusion in Mortal Kombat games), while the other characters sport question marks.
As expected, fans are going nuts over the possibilities. Others have chimed in with suggesting Bruce Campbell‘s Ash as a potential character, seeing as that rumour never quite went away for Mortal Kombat 11 until Campbell himself sadly squashed it. And having Ash in Call of Duty doesn’t quite feel right.
Then again, this could all be Ed Boon having another moment where he’s messing with fans. It’s October, after all.
Meanwhile, the characters for Mortal Kombat 1‘s Kombat Pack DLC have already been revealed, which includes Quan Chi, Ermac and Takeda, Peacemaker, Omni-Man and Homelander. It’s not clear when the first of these characters will be arriving for Mortal Kombat 1, though Homelander is expected to be available to play as in Spring 2024.
Mortal Kombat 1 is out now on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam and Epic Games Store.
