What would the process be for getting approval to put this idea into the game? How much would it bite out of your profits to have to pay them to get the ok for it? Do you think it would be worth it for DLC down the road or is this one of those things you can pretty much put the kibosh on right now?
Licensing rights often are tricky, expensive and lined with all sorts of legal red tape. It would depend on what the holders of the license were looking for in terms of monetary compensation then a lot of legal stuff. This is my sole opinion but the cost of obtaining the license for a mini game would not warrant the cost. I feel money should be poured into the core game opposed to deferring funds from that to get something small and out of the core game. Keep in mind while this game looks of AAA quality at the end of the day it is an indie title. This would not have been a F13 game if Sean Cunningham did not so graciously gift the license to gun media. That goes to show how expensive licenses can cost.
You may say well mortal kombat has Jason and terrordome has a bunch of horror icons. Netherrealm studios is partnered with WB which has money to toss around. Terrordome is an unlicensed game which can not gain profit and can be pulled at anytime by the licenses holders of that IP.
Licenses are tricky business and while this is something that would be cool I personally do not see it as a necessity.
