Unfortunately, a big game with a bunch of movie icons is not likely to ever happen, due to licensing fees and intellectual property rights. It's almost the same as wishing for a WWE vs NJPW game. The reason why we can have a handful of cameos in fighting games, is because it's a much more approachable business model to pitch working with one or two characters than it is to bring all those licenses together to build a game that doesn't yet exist. Mortal Kombat is an established franchise with a large fan base. Same goes for Smash Brothers. They can get some surprising IPs in the game, because it has such a huge fanbase, and the property owners see that there is profit to be made in allowing it. No one would lend their IPs to an untested new franchise that might be a flop...and the cost of making such a game would be astronomical. Instead of paying for one or two guest characters, you'd be paying for an entire roster. It would never make enough money in sales to warrant paying all the usage rights. 

 

Frankly, I'm surprised that Dead by Daylight has as many IPs as it does. But, again...that's adding content one at a time, as the game grows and sees success. It didn't start with everyone that is currently in it. If you're talking about launching a game without a proven following, that would be tons of overhead.

Something fun. But shouldn't have to pay for it if you have the Kombat Pack imo. But hey, I think it's cute for Halloween. Why not? Take more of my money NRS. Lol

Unlocked all costumes? *Censored* no. :lol:

 

I'm trying my damnedest, but the unlocks never give me anything but shit. I'm slowly working through the ones that you get in towers...but, the krypt is such a crapshoot, honestly. Lol.

The gear system is a cute gimmick for Injustice 2 and MK 11 but I really hope it's not a long term thing. MK X did well with alternates, klassics and original/themed costumes.

At the very least do a ton of gear but let us be able to customize the coloring for any gear item. Really hate finally unlocking gear/skins I like but having them be random color schemed

I'd actually wish they would do a GOT version of this game
