The first render of Freddy Krueger has been released by Warner Brothers and NetherRealm Studios. Freddy’s design comes from the 2010 remake of the original The Nightmare on Elm Street. You may be scratching your head on why Freddy has two claws instead of one. Check out his vignette trailer below for story details.
“A malevolent spirit of the Dream Realm, Freddy Krueger preys on the souls of the living as they sleep. When Shao Kahn began to steal Earthrealm’s souls – souls Freddy considered his own – Freddy battled the emperor in the Dream Realm. But Shao Kahn’s will was too strong. He pulled Freddy into the real world, where he was mortal, and defeated him. A badly injured yet determined Freddy fitted both his hands with demonically enhanced razor gloves. Once he has killed Shao Kahn he will find a way back to the Dream Realm, where he will torment Earthrealm’s souls for eternity.”
Mortal Kombat for the PS3 has been patched to 1.04. The new patch includes the compatibility pack for Freddy which makes it a mandatory download. This way everyone will have a better online experience. We’ll have more news as Freddy Krueger gets released for the Xbox 360 and PS3 today.
