Lol that's awesome.

Bring on Jason and Ash from Evil Dead!

Posted by AxleBro

That's good because MK didn't have anymore characters worth putting in the game so i was worried we'd get kobra or some shit. glad to see we get someone crazy instead.

I would have rather they switched that furnace fatality with a take on the classic Tina kill, with the victim floating up in the air and getting sliced.

Posted by RampageAssassin

Perfect match for the game. Now all we need is Jason !

I like that it asks me my birthday when that thumbnail is already pretty gruesome.

Fucking awesome.

Is Krueger now going to be Mortal Kombat Kannon ?

Posted by Damotello

Well, fuck.

This is bullshit.

Huh?! Interesting...

Posted by BigGiantHead

Just curious...how many people who watched this were born on January 1, 1952? Those age verification boxes are such a waste of internets.

Holy shit! Awesome!

I was foolish to think that there wouldn't be a geyser of blood at some point.

I really want to know why some people are angry about this. I really do, because I just don't get it. This is awesome and will be the first DLC character I purchase for the game.

Anybody else desperately wanna see Ed Boon as a playable character? 
 
His powers would of course be all eyebrow based. 

Posted by ChibiSoma

That's it. They've hit Maximum Idiocy.
 
So they troll us with the Fujin sound clip, they add a new character to an already-bloated roster, and instead of adding someone we'd actually want,  they fucking add Jackie Earle Krueger to the lineup (and seriously, fuck New Freddy), and they're doing dick-all to fix their months-old busted online. Wow. Why would anyone play this game now? Why would anyone plonk down cash for this dumb-looking two-clawed incarnation of Krueger? That's why they saved him for last. Because if they had done him first, people would've flipped NRS the bird and walked before Kenshi and Rain came out. The only two characters that actually are worth money. Unfortunately, with the game's online being busted to hell and back, and NRS giving two flying shits about that so long as you pay them, good luck getting in matches at all.
 
Ed Boon and his entire fucking team can suck a dick.

Because certain people always need something to bitch about.

Why aren't they treating Mortal Kombat seriously! With the intense and prolific storyline and the fully realized and deep characters that the MK universe provides, I don't see where something as silly as Freddy Kruger can fit in.  
 
Seriously though, lighten the fuck up. This is awesome! It's not like they stuck Yoda in for no reason. Freddy Kruger at least fits.

I've gotten to the point that when it comes to Mortal Kombat I find it tough to say anything but "I guess that kinda makes sense, in that it makes no sense". 
 
If it made perfect sense it wouldn't really be Mortal Kombat now would it? 
 
PS: Freddy is fucking awesome.

Posted by Ksaw

This seems dumb. It looks like they've done a good job of integrating him into the roster and I'm sure he'll play well, but I can't think of a sillier addition to the game. Yoda maybe?

Posted by retsub101

I'm ok with this! Anyone who isn't doesn't understand MK & never has.

Posted by BaconGames

I guess with Kratos it's hard to argue against a fictional character from another universe coming into the game as DLC. However with Kratos he is a warrior that uses combo's already in his game. Freddy Krueger looks fucking retarding flailing around like he's a martial artist. That's what gets me, the whole point of Freddy is he is psychological horror. Jason makes a bit more sense as he's just a brute with a knife.

Edited by Fyrecroe

Lets see here...  DC fought MK cast, 
then MK fought Kratos, 
then Kratos fought the Soul Calibur cast,
the SC cast fought Starwars...
 
Therefor there is a proper canonical universe in which Batman vs Darthvader is a viable event.  
 edit:  I actually forgot where I was originally going for... Freddy vs Voldo.

If it ain't the Robert Englund version of Freddy, it ain't fuckin' Freddy.

This isn't anything like the Yoda/Darth Vader incident. Those character had no place in that game and didn't even remotely fit. They were there purely as a marketing ploy to get Star Wars fans to buy the game. At least a crazy killer with knife hands fits with the MK roster. I see this as NeatherRealm just having fun and adding in something different instead of another boring MK character that no one other than the most hardcore of fans recognize or even care about.

The crazy thing is that they can actually fit Freddy into the insane mythology of MK. This game went to a lot of trouble of setting up all "The Realms" of this universe. You already have Earth Realm, Out World, Realm of Chaos, Realm of Order, and the Nether Realm that I wouldn't put it passed the writers to just say that Freddy is from the "Realm of Dreams." It may be crazy but it's a no less plausible than a fighter coming from the Realm of Olympus. Also his moves look pretty sick. I can not wait for the follow up to this game: Mortal Kombat vs Warner Bros Universe.

and yet...I still find more acceptable than what Capcom has done.
Posted by go_diego_go

Why is anyone bitching about whether or not Freddy fits into MK?  He is DLC, he doesn't have to fit into cannon.  Kratos doesn't fit either by that criteria,  everyone has seemingly taken the stick out their ass for that.  Still need a reason for him to fit? FINE!!!! 
 
1) He has taken a perfectly normal teenage boy and turned him into a geyser of blood large enough to fill an Olympic swimming pool.   
2) His hands have fucking claws on them!!! 
 
For a franchise that has historically revolved inflicting amounts of damage superman couldn't withstand and flourishing, enough insides to construct 10 individual people, having a character who spends his afterlife fucking people up is a perfect fit.  Thank you NRS for being as bat shit crazy as ever!

Does he do teleports and stab dudes too? 
 
Something different I guess?

..... Wut?
Posted by phrosnite

Worst idea ever! Fuck this shit!

Posted by TheBlackPigeon

Haters need to go be somewhere. 
 
Freddy is a neat addition to the DLC roster, who certainly 'fits in' a lot better than the Jedi/Sith did in Soul Calibur. Unlike those guys, I can easily believe that Freddy is a denizen of the NetherRealm, just like Scorpion.

Posted by PhilESkyline

Might as well bring on It The Clown, Hellraiser (pin-face), and Chucky.

Posted by Hiashi

This is somehow disappointing to me, considering he's the last dlc character.

Posted by King_Bonzo

gash. That is all.
