Freddy And Jason May Appear In Mortal Kombat!

UPDATE: Freddy Confirmed

Last year, the popular fan game Terrordrome, which itself is a Mortal Kombat style fighter, was asked to pull the Freddy and Jason characters from the roster of horror icons that appeared in the game. Word came down at that time that Ash Williams from the Evil Dead series as well as Ghostface from the Scream franchise were also asked to be pulled for copyright issues. Developments in the last few weeks have now shed some light on why these requests were made.

Last week, it was announced that Scream was getting an official game released for mobile phones and there have been rumors and talk that there would be an Evil Dead game developed for mobile phones as well. So, when we were tipped off by site visitor Adam Wilson that a juicy rumor about our favorite slasher Jason Voorhees may be getting an official appearance in a video game, we were both excited, but not too surprised.

Over at The Bitbag, they received a nice liitle bit of information pertaining to the new Mortal Kombat game that is set for release soon. Their insider, who apparently is close to the project, is telling them that Warner Bros. is ready to have Jason Voorhees and Freddy Krueger enter into the Mortal Kombat realm. Each character would be available as a downloadble character around Halloween. This is exciting news for gamers as this is exactly what the Terrordrome Game developers were vying to create for many years.

This is indeed a rumor right now with no official announcement, but this sounds like a very legit prospect as it seems everyone is taking their horror properties and putting them into the gaming world. If this happens with Mortal Kombat and is a huge success, fans may finally get the long sought after official game for Friday the 13th and Jason Voorhees!
