Mortal Kombat Gets Freddy Krueger: The Best Thing Since Sliced Head
If you ever thought that the phase in your life where scary movies were just not “scary” any more, Mortal Kombat has found a way to ensure that you revisit those bed wetting up-all-night-scared-of-the-shadows-days. The newest batch of DLC will bring us everyone favorite creep from the street.
At first glance Freddy looks to be a faster Baraka-type character, but his speediness looks to definitely open him up for some great combos. That is, while he’s not too busy opening you up with those razor sharp hand daggers. It was a little surprising at first to hear a character like Mr. Krueger being added to the lineup.
After watching the trailer, there was one specific part that really hit it out of the park for me. At the point where he places his index to his lips and says “Shhh” then briskly turns his opponent around and drives his hand through their torso made me realize why he was such a good fit. Freddy will release on August 19th and cost 400 MS Points, or USD4.99 on the PlayStation Network.
