With the success of Mortal Kombat, how could they make the game more interesting. By putting in one of the most infamous horror  villains  known, Freddy Krueger.

The boogeyman himself comes to the Netherrealm to face off with the likes of Scorpion and Shao Khan. For $5, or 400 Microsoft Points, Freddy can be yours to control. Unfortunatley, you can not wake up to get away from Freddy. The only flaw I see in the design is his bladed gloves. In the movies, he only has one, but in the game he has two. When you watch the preview, it is almost like he could be Wolverine, dressed up like Krueger.
