Today there was a big media blast of new Freddy Krueger DLC media in anticipation of his release tomorrow. First, we received his detailed render which you can see below. In the render you can clearly see what we already know that they went with the redesign of the Freddy from the new rebooted film series where he looks like a proper burn victim.



But you may be asking yourself, why does he have a claw on each hand now? To learn more about that check out the Freddy Story Vignette trailer below for these and more answers.



As well as the Freddy Krueger Story trailer, there is a Freddy DLC television commercial that will beginning to air tomorrow across the US. This is the first DLC for Mortal Kombat that got a commercial and likely will provide a big push for Freddy Krueger fans knowing that he's in the game now.



Also we've received word that a new Mortal Kombat patch v1.04 is propagating to PlayStation 3 users tonight. Word is that this patch weighs in over 100 MB and makes the compatibility packs mandatory for a better online experience. Included with this is the final fourth compatibility pack which also includes The Sub-Zero and Cyber Sub-Zero "Ice Pack" Free Skins. Once we get more word on the patch and if it's making it's way to the Xbox 360 or not we'll update the story here.

As a reminder, in the United States Freddy should be available around 3-4am Central time on Xbox Live Arcade and around 3-5pm Central for the PlayStation Network. Be ready because... 1, 2, Freddy's Coming For You...

Of course Xbox isn't getting it early. That's just NrS and WB's way of shafting us. Again.

Well, you did seem quite put together and then you go bash Freddy's inclusion. I mean, you should of got that out of your system a while back, but since you're new I can understand. I don't think the urgency is with any of those characters... except for Kintaro.... He was already announced for DLC. That was way back when Kenshi and Skarlet were first announced, even. Did everyone people pretty much just forget? Yeah they really did, but I haven't. You can even look up the magazine scan, but I can't put it up since it's not allowed.

i cant explain it mate, i just really dont feel comfortable with him as DLC. im too much of a purist and would love an old character to have a cool re-render of an old character eg: the way theyve gone to town on reptile. i dunno, i know its probably getting old people moaning about it... i think the main reason is tht i was under the impression kintaro WAS this coming dlc character. so when it was anounced i just felt a little deflated! ha

I'm quite impressed with Freddy. Out of all the DLC characters I think he was the most worth it (Gameplay wise, not character wise. ANTI-FLAME SHIELD PLACED!!)

I, for one, welcome Freddy to Mortal Kombat 9. I guess i have some favoritism for him, i grew up watching Nightmare on Elm Street. But i kinda wanna see a future DLC for Sabrewulf or Fulgore (From Killer Instinct, if you don't know). There's some guest characters NRS should contemplate!
