Say what you will about the seemingly odd pairing of Freddy Krueger with Mortal Kombat, but the addition of the razor-gloved psychopath is certainly going to shake things up. Warner Bros. Games and NetherRealm Studios released a promo yesterday welcoming the horror icon to their franchise. Decked out with not one but two razor gloves for extra carnage, Freddy maintains his spooky sense of humor, issuing his opponents a casual wave goodbye and a menacing laugh after he slices and dices them. This addition brings new meaning to the idea of “dream warriors” from the third Nightmare on Elm Street film. Freddy joins the Kombat universe on Aug. 9. See the full promo after the jump.
