Mortal Kombat 1 PS5 PlayStation

Beloved Mortal Kombat 1 developer Ed Boon is teasing some intriguing additions to the latest iteration of the now-venerable fighting franchise. The current roster was already a rogue's gallery of murderers and general villainy, but these latest are comprised of some of the worst monsters in all media.

Boon tweeted an image showing the nightmarish visages of some of horror's most infamous murderers, with ticks against those who have appeared in the series as guest characters previously, like Leatherface, Freddy Krueger, and Jason Voorhees.

However, those with question marks against their faces are of particular interest. Jigsaw, Ghostface, Chucky, Pinhead, and Michael Myers would all find fast friends in the current Mortal Kombar lineup. This could be Boon playing with the community or a potential portent of things to come.

What do you think of these potentially villainous additions to the Mortal Kombat 1 roster? Would you welcome them? Dare to dream in the comments section below.
