Freddy Krueger to Hijack Nightmares in Mortal Kombat

on July 22, 2011 7:00 PM

You read that correctly. Horror icon Freddy Krueger will star as the next DLC character for NetherRealm’s Mortal Kombat. Freddy has been the author of many childhood nightmares over the last couple of decades and looks like he’ll be a perfect fit for this brutal and very bloody fighter. Just look how well he fits in in this new trailer with his devastating claw projectiles and teleport.

His fatalities look absolutely terrifying, especially the one where he traps Scorpion in the furnace. I mean, wow. Freddy Krueger is reportedly the final DLC character for Mortal Kombat. I love how NR didn’t make us wait months for a single character (coughBlazBluecough). Freddy will be available for download on both versions of the game on August 9th. Hit the break for the reveal trailer.
