If you’re like me, you love video games, but also have so many other hobbies(and children) that require your money, so you miss out on some titles here and there. I was definitely interested in the new Mortal Kombat title, I just never got around to picking it up. Perhaps now that a new video has surfaced, serving as a trailer of sorts for a DLC addon for the game which adds none other than Freddy Kruger as a playable character, I may seek it out on the cheap.
I don’t know for sure, and it’s hard to tell from the video, but it seems probably that this will be “new” Freddy, rather than the classic Kruger we all know and love. This may bother some “Nightmare” purists, but I’ll just be glad to finally wield the claws in a video game. Freddy comes complete with his own set of special moves, and “Fatalities”, some of which look great, others just okay. The DLC will be available to the masses on August 9th. Check out the video below for a taste, and get those claws sharpened for battle.
