Freddy Krueger joins Mortal Kombat
Nightmare on Elm Street boogeyman revealed as mystery DLC character for NetherRealm Studios' fighting game.
Some might have considered 2008's Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe to be a dream match, but the famously violent fighting franchise is getting a nocturnal crossover of another kind. Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and NetherRealm Studios today revealed that big-screen bad man Freddy Krueger will be the fourth downloadable character for the recently released Mortal Kombat on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
Krueger is best known as the child-murdering maniac from A Nightmare on Elm Street who was burned to death by an understandably angry group of neighbors. In the films, Krueger stalks and kills teenagers in their dreams, which causes them to die in real life. This is not his first crossover, having previously had a run-in with Friday the 13th icon and fellow adolescent slasher Jason Voorhees in Freddy vs. Jason.
Krueger will appear in Mortal Kombat with his trademark knife glove, as well as his familiar red-and-green-striped sweater and tattered hat. He'll also be outfitted with his own moveset, two unique fatalities, and a story ending for the game's arcade ladder mode.
Gamers will be able to add Krueger to their Mortal Kombat rosters August 9 for $5, or 400 Microsoft points. For more on Mortal Kombat, check out GameSpot's review.
