When the latest Mortal Kombat sequel was released, there was talk of additional Kombatants being available in the future as downloadable content. First it was Skarlet, then Kenshi and eventually Rain. A fourth unnamed fighter was hinted at and even teased a bit but he has finally come out of your nightmares into reality. That’s right, the Scourge of Elm Street, Freddy Krueger will be slicing and dicing in Mortal Kombat!
Coming August 9th, Freddy will bring his signature bladed gloves and jab them straight into the faces and other body parts of the rest of the MK crew. Watching the announcement trailer, I noticed his fatalities are signature Freddy through and through. Summoning a massive fire-breathing boiler, tossing the victim in and laughing in his maniacal voice? Yep that’s Freddy. His fighting style reminds one of Wolverine, what with the bladed gloves and all. Rumors have been floating around that a certain Jason Voorhees would also be included but it seems this round went to Freddy. All they need now is the little girls in white, chanting “One, Two, Freddy’s coming for you”.
The Springwood Slaughterer will be available for 400 Microsoft points, or free with the Kombat Pass, and $4.99 on the PS Store. Hit the jump, peep the trailer and tell us, how excited are you to fight as the Dream Warriors antagonist? What about a true Movie Monsters fighting game?
Thanks to IGN and YouTube for the trailer.
