Freddy Krueger To MK Fighters: "Don't Fall Asleep!"

Mortal Kombat has a ton of iconic characters. Time to add another...and this guy's a bad-ass movie icon.

It's Freddy Krueger! He has been revealed in a new IGN announcement video; the horrific demon of dreams is coming to MK on August 9. Warner Bros. then confirmed that fighting fans can grab Freddy for $4.99 (PlayStation Network) or 400 Microsoft Points (Xbox Live Marketplace). He'll be free for Season Pass subscribers. If you love the game, you just gotta try him out!

By the way, Comic-Con attendees will get a chance to check out Freddy's moves at the GameStop in San Diego's Westfield Horton Plaza between 7 and 10 p.m. PT.

P.S. If you don't get the headline, you're just way too young. ;)

Jason could be like Kratos...A little slower but more powerful strikes.

1, 2, Freddy's commin for you...

EDIT : that video was sick. Freddy's gonna tearsome sh*t up.
But if it were me, I would have made the dreddy video a little more true to elm st. Get some 1, 2, playing in the backround. And have a scene of him slashin someone, and then the next part of the song up to about the 7, 8 part, show one of his fatlities, then again at the 9, 10 part. And then after that, I would have played his crazy ass laugh. And have him do the part where he spins around and sprays blood on the screen. THEN close out the trailer with the nightmare on elm street theme.

But I'm sure someone in youtube land will make a vid like that soon enough.

let me try to say what i think...as quick as possible... To me freddy fits...he fits the dark fantasy mk mode...obviously this was a move more so by warner bros. Looks like he plays fine, it'll be ok. I see it 2 different ways...on one hand...it's like mk vs dc....it plays like mk...moves feel like mk...only diff is freddy is dark fantasy n can do fatalities so the match seems perfect. on the other hand...it's like...freddy is not a fighter...why mess up a good game w history w rubbish hollywood crap. imo it should be ok, nothing to worry about

Guys, you won't get caught. Most people that wanted MK in Australia already have the game, myself included. That "fine" bs was a scare tactic & i haven't heard one person get caught importing.

Some lads i know even imported multiple copies to give to their mates & they all got through, so stress less. Furthermore if todays news is anything to go by, we will be getting the R18 within months, only one state member (NSW) is yet to make a decision but regardless of what he says the commonwealth are set to approve it anyway. So expect a black sticker on our games before the year is out.

& don't worry about current RC games remaining RC, if Ed Boon decides to release a special edition of MK under the new guidelines there is no reason why it won't get classified as R18 when we have the rating in place.

As for Freddy, awesome addition!!!!! Whether he will be as good as Rain (who is an absolute beast) remains to be seen but i can't wait to give him a shot nonetheless.

I am hoping we eventually get some underappreciated MK fighters such as Ashrah,Frost, Tanya, Meat & that minotaur fellow.

All the Aussi ban stuff has really dented the image I held of you guys. I pictured you as beer drinking crocodile wrestlers. But your government seems to think you're all... like... shandy drinking barbie doll players or something.

Thanks for the update there, Kevin. I was hoping that this would come to pass. No more bans woohoo! I'm flummoxed at SA's initial decision to replace the MA rating with R, but that should be negated if the entire country adopts the 18+ restriction anyway.

RadioHeader,
Don't let the governments give you the wrong impression! Just watch a few games of NRL, that'll set you straight.

FYI, The AU 18+ rating has just been passed according to Gamespot AU....

http://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/2011-07-22-australia-introduces-r18-certificate-for-games

Australia introduces R18+ certificate for games

The Australian federal government will introduce an R18+ classification for video games, Gamespot AU reports.

The country's ministers gathered at the Standing Committee of Attorneys-General (SCAG) meeting in Adelaide to bring the long-running issue to a close.

Eight of Australia' nine territories agreed to introduce the new classification pending the approval of the proposed R18+ guidelines.

Only New South Wales abstained from the vote, claiming that further discussion with its cabinet is required.

Federal minister for home affairs Brendan O'Connor announced that the classification would be introduced at a federal level, and that the process would only take "a couple of months."

"This is a big step forward in the long-running debate on classification of computer games for adults," he said.

"Once introduced, the classification will afford adults the opportunity to view material designed for adults. It is a credit to all jurisdictions that the meeting has now been able to achieve agreement over what is a complex matter in classification policy."

Australia has long been known for its tough stance on video games, effectively banning a number of high profile releases due to the absence of an adult age classification. However, the R18+ guidelines allow for more explicit language, violence and depictions of sexual acts.

The new rating will be welcomed by the Australian development community, which recently benefitted from the introduction of research and development tax credits.

I'm not a huge Freddy fan but doesn't he only have one knife-glove? Also, why would they design the character after the new Freddy and not the original? That's just boo-worthy. Honestly, this is neat but I would've liked to have seen an actual MK character instead.

I agree that it should have been the robert englund freddy and not the new. The new one looks too much like jim carrey as the grinch.

Also, they should have had good 'ol robbie englund do the freddy voice for the game too.

Glad I'm not the only one who liked the new freddy look. He was more menacing than he was in the original. He was too wisecracking, the new one wasn't. Also yes I agree Rorshach is the @#$%!!!

That's friggin sweet as hell. I've always preferred Jason but Freddy was a close second. I really liked the remake, hope there's another one that's all new. I still have yet to buy this, but I'll get around to it as an old MK fan must. Go get em Freddy.

Looks cool as hell, especially since I've been a Freddy fan since the beginning, but it still won't make me play the game.

Haha I'm usually angry over random additions like this... but I just can't help but smile. To me the plot of MK has always been a bit silly past the 1st game so I gues i really do not mind.

He also really suits the enviroment, no one can deny that. I wonder if thay'll do more movie characters to compliment him like Lightning McQueen from Cars 2... okay but seriously andy other ideas people?

I still remember the rumors that flew around about unlockable characters in the magazines for MK2 back in the day. Now they can add anybody they want (with proper licensing) as DLC. $5 is a bit steep though.

what does freddy have to do with the MK series?
theres so many cool relevant MK characters they could put in there and fit to the story, but they go with this?

Two questions, why TF doesn't freddy look like Robert Englund? and two, Will at least Mr. Englund voice the character?

Because they are using the version from the remake, not the originals. And since Robert wasn't Freddy in the remake, he most likely won't do the voice either. Which is a shame, since he will always be the one true Freddy to me.

Why say from the 80s then use the updated one?

Props to Ben for using the pic of the real Freddy.

Anyway, I definitely gotta get this game now.

I liked the remake Freddy. As World says they have made him more scarier and he was a child molester and made that side of his character more.

Don't get me wrong I love the original Freddy and this was one of the better remakes I have seen in a long long time. I have all the Freddy movies on dvd including the new one.

Yes I shall be getting this DLC but I do not like the fact he has 2 claw hands ? WTF is that all about ?
