Freddy Krueger to be Mortal Kombat’s final DLC kombatant

Friday, 22nd July 2011 01:08 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Mortal Kombat just turned it up a notch by revealing its final DLC character as A Nightmare on Elm Street’s Freddy Krueger. This trailer is a ball buster.

Skarlet, Kenshi and Rain were shown alongside a final, unrevealed character, and speculation has ranged across the entire Mortal Kombat canon as well as stopping by several Xbox 360 exclusives, but persistant whispers of a movie monster clearly won out.

Freddy’s claws, link to hell and relationship with fire are simple horror techniques but even against the freak show that is Mortal Kombat’s cast he looks terrifying. Sold!

Gamefront reports Krueger will be unleashed in August, and will cost $5 for those without a season pass.

Enjoy the unrestrainedly brutal trailer below.

    They should announce Jason as well. Freddy vs Jason in Mortal Kombat would be EPIC!

    While the horror movie geek in me thinks this is awesome (mostly because it’s just so unexpected), it’s fairly surprising to see them add a child molester as a playable character in a game franchise which targets a largely young audience with each release.

    I thought this was awesome until I saw that this isn’t the real Freddy Krueger, i.e. the Robert Englund version from A Nightmare on Elmstreet 1-7, but the lame version from the lame 2010 reboot :(
