Freddy Krueger Claws His Way Into the Mortal Kombat Universe


Playing as Freddy Krueger in the latest “Moral Kombat” would be a blast, that is, if I actually owned the game. After all, it’s kind of hard to take advantage of downloadable content when you don’t have the original title in your limited video game collection. For those of you who’ve been systematically memorizing all of the moves for your favorite characters in the latest installment of the popular franchise, your chance to beat the absolute crap out of Freddy Krueger is almost here. The DLC is currently scheduled for release on August 9th, 2011, though in this day and age, that date could change at a moment’s notice. Expect this thing to set you back $4.99 on the Playstation, or 400 MS Points if you’re gaming on the 360.

And is it just me or does this Freddy look more like the one from the remake? That’s extremely unfortunate. Robert Englund is Freddy Krueger, folks. There’s just no getting around it. At any rate, the trailer for Freddy’s latest nightmare rests below.

Todd was raised on a steady diet of Hollywood blockbusters, late-night Cinemax programming, and USA’s “Up All Night,” which may explain why his taste in movies is more than a little questionable. When he isn’t providing news and reviews for Beyond Hollywood, he can be found lounging lazily on his couch, perched in front of his television, or dwelling in places where direct sunlight can be easily avoided. He's happily married, in his 30's, and totally badass. If you'd like to reach Todd, you can follow him on Twitter or send him email/scoops to todd (at)

    Why does he have two gloves? I’m not exactly one of those people who are ridiculously anal about films, games, or other such media having to stay glued to the original story lines…. but Freddy Kruger with two gloves? That’s like Captain America with two shields.

    Yeah, this is totally a missed opportunity for MK. They used the wrong Freddy AND there’s two gloves… Sigh.

    I agree, fail for the two gloves. MK hasn’t been right since Sega. They need to take it back to those “Toasty” days. But then again nobody plays fighting games these days anyways.
