Would You Play A Horror Themed Fighting Game?

Street Fighter II. Fatal Fury. King of Fighters. Killer Instinct. Clayfighters. Mortal Kombat. All of these are fine examples of the past as well as still popular fighting game franchises. But thanks to the mad geniuses at ScrollBoss we have been given a glimpse at a fighting game that could eclipse all of those fighting games combined…Horror vs. Horror!

Well, assuming you are of course a horror fan. Just look at the many icons that have been made available in this art print!

Carrie White (Carrie) and Michael Meyers (Halloween).

Now even though we horror fans must grieve that this is not a game at least we can visit ScrollBoss and secure a print to hang proudly in our homes, right? I want to give a very big thanks to the talented artist known as NinjaInk for giving us the heads up on this wonderful piece of art in the first place.

    On the PS2, a buddy of mine got a hold of a European / Japanese bootleg of a banned horror themed fight game. Thrill Kill. No licensed characters of course but a few of them bore similar traits to the hollywood stuff. While morbidly fun at first the game eventually wears out its psycho welcome. Something having to do with one of the fighters getting off on extreme fatalities…

    Anyways here is a montage of some of the fatalities…
