A few months ago we reported on a rumor that both Freddy and Jason would be making their way to the latest Mortal Kombat game. Today confirmation has come that at least one of them is definitely joining the fray!

Freddy Krueger — the dream-invading, claw-wearing murderer from the A Nightmare on Elm Street film franchise — is coming to Mortal Kombat on August 9th, 2011. And he’s rocking a razor glove on each hand!

The only downside? Krueger is rockin’ the remake look instead of the Englund look. Maybe he’ll be rockin’ a alternate classic outfit?

Mortal Kombat (review here) is the most brutal installment of the legendary fighting game to date and is currently available on the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft in 2011. The game, along with the upcoming DLC, was developed by NetherRealm Studios, led by Mortal Kombat creator and creative director Ed Boon.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

  • Sirand

    Who’s bright idea was it to use the remake Freddy? That just kills any enjoyment.

    • MagusMaleficus

      Yup, total fuckin’ joke. Sounds like they got an intern do record his voice samples too.

    • Terminal

      Completely agreed.

  • Shambling_in_Bandages

    It should be really easy to defeat Freddy. First, you distract him by targeting him with a stream of child porn emails, then you finish him off by shooting him at point-blank range with the baby-launcher.

  • nonserviam03

    Yeah, I’m hoping his alternate costume looks more like the original. The furnace fatality is really cool too. Really fitting.

    • Lizuka8002

      He probably won’t get one, given despite having one on the disc Skarlet doesn’t have one, and Kenshi and Rain don’t either.

  • Vanvance1

    He does seem like a perfect fit for the game. Now why not throw Jason in too? Then Pinhead and Chucky.

  • kiddcapone

    That’s fucking awesome! Mortal Kombat just keeps getting more and more amazing…

  • Lizuka8002

    They’ve got me pretty curious about this, yeah, and he is looking good. Wonder what Freddy will look like in the aftermath of a Babality.
