Ed Boon has said the inspiration for adding Freddy Krueger to Mortal Kombat as a DLC character was because NetherRealm wanted to add a famous character into the series that fit with the overall theme.
I think it sounds like a pretty decent idea.... not played it though so I can't say for sure!
its a horrible idea. but i mean this coming from a game that has like 10 scorpion clones, kitana clones, goro clones, syrax clones etc. crappy unimaginative uselessly violent, stiff bad game
It does make sense, and freddy fits in way more than Kratos. oh wait, you don't even play MK....
Freddy in MK is a great idea.IMO Final fantasy XIII as a whole is a horrible idea. Except for violent, you can apply all of those adjectives to that disgrace of a game too. Then add 20 more negative adjectives or so, and we will be at least closer to what it deserves.
I'm surprised so many people are so upset with this, or think it's going to ruin MK9. This is Mortal Kombat - a game series with magical humans, centaurs and gods fighting in a martial arts tournament for the safety of Earth. It was never meant to be taken too seriously. Don't like Freddy Krueger or don't want him in the game? Then don't download him.

Kinda does, kinda doesnt. IMO, i'd of put Rikki-oh in.....just saying what everyone is thinking. Edit: Good looking out fish...my stupidity knows no limits.

I think it's kind of lame actually.
Certainly made more sense than the DC cross over game.
Pinhead would've made a more logical choice given the whole other world story MK is always doing. But Hellraiser is not as popular as Elm Street.
4 da next dlc hav jason vorhees and michael myers. i can imagine it now chainsaw fatality!
Unfortunately they put the WRONG Freddy. They put the newer crappy version. They should of stuck with the real Robert Englund version.
Theres no point in advertising the old freddy.Hes well OLD.
*facepalm* its not an advertisement, its a game character. More people would've wanted old freddy over the new one. It should've been about which freddy is more recognizeable and/or popular. Even if it is advertisement, who would want to advertise that POS movie.
I dont think they have the rights to use the old Freddy, Like GoldenEye can no longer use Pierce Brosnan's likeness for their remake. (I could be wrong and you might actually use it as an alt outfit. I'll have to do some research.)
The new freddy K looks like a,badly burned retard,,.,.,.old freddy was the best one,and as the saying goes if its not broke dont fix it,.,.,.
Wouldn't it make more sense to add original MK characters 1st? I'm surprise that MS didn't get Freddy exclusive for 360 version.
All of the IMPORTANT characters are already in the game. Why do you want the fodder characters?
Ed Boom wanted to do the opposite of MK: Armageddon. He got rid of all the Copy paste clones from the series. Every charactor is unique in MK9.
Jason makes sense!! Freddy Vs Jason all day!
@hilyou...chainsaw fatality with Leatherface from Texas Chainsaw Massacre!!!
Hell yeah it made sense
They should try to add Punisher or Ghostrider from Marvel.
