Attention, horror fans! Turn on your mobile devices immediately, and power up Mortal Kombat X because the daddy of horror icons has just been added to the game.
That’s right… Freddy Krueger himself is now available as a downloadable character, as revealed by NetherRealm on Twitter. This marks his second appearance in the franchise after he showed up in IX, and for now he’s exclusive to mobile.
Once again, it appears that they based his appearance more on the 2010 film rather than going for the classic Robert Englund look, so I’m afraid we’re gonna have to put up with a version of Freddy looking more like an overcooked hamburger than a hideously deformed killer. But he’s got his razor-sharp claws, and I guess that’s all that matters.
He’s included in the Update 1.11, which also includes some new character costumes and new mode called “Shao Kahn’s Tower,” but let’s face it… you couldn’t care about those. It’s pretty clear why you’re gonna be downloading this update. And yes, Jason’s in the mobile version, too, so what more can I say? Fire up your goddamn devices, and get the two titans of horror to fight to the death once again!
