Freddy Krueger Kreates a Nightmare in MK!

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!

You've got to be kidding me... Look at all of us silly MK fans, hoping we'd get an MK character.

I'm not really sure how to feel about this...

To be honest, I grew up watching Robert Englund's Freddy Krueger, so I really don't like this new guy.

RE: Freddy Krueger makes a Nightmare in Mortal Kombat!

Whew. I was so afraid it was going to be a robot copy of Smoke or a guest character from a game series I didn't like. This is much better.

Also, you remember how Boon said future DLC depends on how this sells? He was probably referring specifically to Freddy. Remember that the original rumors specified Freddy AND Jason. It's highly likely WB told NRS they would give them some money to do some DLC, but they had to include Freddy. Then if Freddy sells well enough they would agree to fund another four characters that included Jason for release later in the fall.

So I wonder if people hate Freddy enough to deny themselves the opportunity for three more MK characters (+ Jason).

RE: Freddy Krueger makes a Nightmare in Mortal Kombat!

OMG its a guest character OMG.lol
Get mad all you want, but his moves and fatality's are F****** awesome. I completely support this and I am really excited to see his ending in arcade mode. Plus, if they add Jason in OCT(crosses fingers) I could finally have a freddy vs Jason match in MK or use them as a tag team match up. Come on,
this is really exciting news.

RE: Freddy Krueger makes a Nightmare in Mortal Kombat!

While I HATE that it's another guest character I love the fact it's Freddy. SO much better than shit-for-brains Jason (though I suspect he's coming soon).

Here's hoping the DLC sold well so we can get wave 2 (new MK character, MK character, MK character, guest character).

RE: Freddy Krueger makes a Nightmare in Mortal Kombat!

I'm happy with him, it's an optional DLC and regardless of what is said here it'll sell well.

This might not even be the last DLC so lets just wait and see.

RE: Freddy Krueger makes a Nightmare in Mortal Kombat!

I'll say this much... despite the fact that Freddy would've made more sense as an October DLC and not bundled covertly into the summer pass... he looks pretty damn good. NRS incorporated a lot of signature Freddy aspects into his gameplay and design. I love the "shhh" whisper..classic Freddy.

RE: Freddy Krueger makes a Nightmare in Mortal Kombat!

Odd....one of those commentators in one of those mk tournaments asked Hector Sanchez he heard Freddy was going to be a DLC like a couple of months ago. I wonder how he heard the rumor. He was right on the money when I thought he was just pulling info out of his ass.

Englund retired years ago from being Freddy.



As for Freddie, shrug it off. If you cannot disregard him, your problem, and by that I do mean problem. You shouldn't throw a fit and throw a wieverschnitzel into the garbage just because they have served it with extra ketchup. You set the ketchup apart and eat the rest.

Even if the costumes are amazing, I can't download them. There's no way I'm fighting this character online.
