Don’t Forget the Power Glove! Freddy Krueger Joins Mortal Kombat

Freddy Power Glove

If you ask a lot of gamers and fighting buffs what they think of Mortal Kombat, they’ll tell you it’s not fit to be any sort of competitive fighting.  But damn it all, if the game isn’t entertaining as hell to watch and play.  I really have to hand it to the team behind the newest Mortal Kombat, I’m really happy they’re not taking a super serious approach to the game– which is how they can get away with something as stupidly crazy as throwing Freddy Krueger of Nightmare on Elm Street fame into the game as DLC on August 9th.  The classic man of your nightmares will bring with him his trademark razorblade gloves, but unfortunately seems to be in line with the recent reboot version rather than the classic character as portrayed by Robert Englund… so that means you probably won’t be hearing cheesily ironic one liners and customized fatalities, though a boiler does appear in one of them.  The character will be available on both PS3 and Xbox 360 and will set you back $4.99 (400 MSP).  What a world we live in where we have a fighting game where you can pit Kratos against Freddy Krueger, eh?  You can see him in action in the video below.
