Freddy Krueger Kreates a Nightmare in MK!

One, Two, Freddys Koming for You....

NetherRealm Studios have announced the 'mysterious' Fourth DLC kombatant at this years Mortal Kombat Panel at San Diego Comic-Con. The legendary sinister and malevonent, horror movie icon, Freddy Krueger from the highly popular A Nightmare On Elm Street franchise.

The Bastard Son of a 100 Maniacs!

"Freddy Krueger "The Bastard Son of one hundred Maniacs" is a fictional character from the A Nightmare on Elm Street series of horror films. He was created by Wes Craven and has been portrayed by actor Robert Englund in every film until recently with Jackie Earle Haley taking the role. He is an undead serial killer and child molester who can attack his victims supernaturally from within their own dreams and nightmares. Freddy is commonly identified by his burnt face, his red and green sweater, a fedora hat, his trademark metal-clawed glove, and sadistic and witty persona..."

"Freddy Krueger is set to Invade the Mortal Kombat Tournament..."

Freddy Krueger!

This incarnation of Freddy is using his likeness from the latest film, played by Jackie Earle Haley as opposed to being modelled on the original actor, Robert Englund.Making an impressive transition from Film to Video Game, Freddy now wields two of his infamous Bladed Gloves which can also be used as a Projectile and a Ground Pop-up or used vigorously in combo's and strikes whilst in kombat. Other nods to his supernatural prowess include a Fiery Teleport and more! His X-Ray involves impaling his victim in their lungs with his gloves and then swiping all four blades across his opponents face. Both of his Fatalities are partially shown. The first one being reminiscent of a scene in the first Nightmare on Elm Street film where the opponent is dragged underground and then a geyser of blood bursts forth, and the second one involves Freddy summoning his trusty old Furnace, locking the opponent within it and in the process severing their arm and burning them to a crisp, incinerating them...

Freddy is released Tuesday August 9th on Xbox Live and Playstation Network for 400 Microsoft Points and $4.99 respectively. Hhe is also the final quarter of the Season Pass which is available now!
