Mortal Kombat + Freddy Krueger = Absolute Insanity
Who would have ever thought in a million years we'd finally be seeing one of our favorite horror icons show up in a fighting game? I know we had the tech demo called "TerrorDrome" a year or two back but I'm talking officially licensed horror madness in a mainstream video game! There were rumors a while back about Freddy and/or Jason making their way into Mortal Kombat but at the time they were just that, rumors. Now we have official word that Freddy Krueger, albeit the new Freddy (with two claws, and the not really scary but nasty face). As you can see in the shots below they did a pretty good job of recreating the new Freddy for the game, also check out his bad-ass kombos in the trailer as well! My big question is, when they say he is the final downloadable character, do they mean for this current 4 pack, or for the game entirely? I'm beginning to wonder if he does well as a piece of dlc and makes them some more bank then could we maybe see future horror icons show up in this game? Or, could we even see a future game featuring these characters with their very own licensed storyline?
