Hinted in Skarlet’s Video Biography Skarlet, Kenshi and Rain were announced as DLC as well as a mysterious character. Freddy Krueger from the Nightmare on Elm Street series, is the fourth DLC character to be released by NetherRealm Studios, joining the cast of fighters with his razor gloves and his plain creepiness.
Modelled after the ‘new’ version of Freddy, his signature striped shirt, hat, gloves and creepy laugh bring a weird feeling to the game. His move set and special attacks are brilliant, as he uses his gloves to basically bring pain to any MK9 character with his fighting style, and also using it as a pop-up move or a projectile attack. Also, in his X-ray, he uses his razor gloves, as he stabs them in the chest and slashes the opponent across the face. Receiving two fatalities, the furnace fatality being the (better) one, Freddy is a powerful and fairly quick character, being able to teleport and use a pop-up attack.
Firstly, as well as everyone else, I didn’t see this coming, thinking that the next DLC was Mortal Kombat Character. I think Freddy fits in the cast of Kombatants very well and just shows how NetherRealm Studios are just full of surprises.
