Freddy Krueger and the Secret Origins of DLC Kharacters
by Gambid on Jul 24, 2011 :: 13 Comments

PlayStation.Blog has published a really interesting interview with Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon in which he gives some details on the creation of Freddy Krueger and the rest of the DLC Kharacters. From the article:

PlayStation.Blog: So what is the inspiration for bringing Freddy Krueger to Mortal Kombat as a DLC character?
Ed Boon, Creative Director, Netherrealm Studios: It was a number of things. It’s kind of hard to choose a character who would fit well into the Mortal Kombat universe, with the blood and violence that’s so associated with it. Kratos from God of War is a brutal, bloody character, so he makes sense. When we had the discussions about the DLC characters, we knew that we wanted to add a returning character, a new character, but also a guest character. That was one of the goals right from the beginning. A number of names were run by us: Jason, Michael Myers and all those guys. Freddy Kreuger, we felt, was the most instantly recognizable and he fits in with Mortal Kombat with his claws. It just seemed like the best fit.
...
PSB: Will Freddy’s ability to invade his victims’ dreams play into his Mortal Kombat incarnation in any way?
Yeah, you’ll see some of that. His story ending really plays into that. In the middle of a fight, you won’t see him entering a guy’s head in a dream sequence or anything, but there is plenty of dream-related stuff in his introduction animation, his victory stance, his fatalities and so forth.

Freddy Krueger's Biography and Render
by Gambid on Jul 23, 2011 :: 8 Comments

Freddy Krueger's Biography and Render have been released on The Official Mortal Kombat Website. The Biography even goes into detail on how and why Freddy has two razor gloves instead of one. A detail that has been preventing fans from going to sleep ever since the character was announced:



Biography: A malevolent spirit of the Dream Realm, Freddy Krueger preys on the souls of the living as they sleep. When Shao Kahn began to steal Earthrealm's souls - souls Freddy considered his own - Freddy battled the emperor in the Dream Realm. But Shao Kahn's will was too strong. He pulled Freddy into the real world, where he was mortal, and defeated him. A badly injured yet determined Freddy fitted both his hands with demonically enhanced razor gloves. Once he has killed Shao Kahn he will find a way back to the Dream Realm, where he will torment Earthrealm's souls for eternity.

Freddy Krueger is the 4th and currently last DLC Kharacter for Mortal Kombat 9 and will be available on August 9th, 2011.

Biography: A refugee orphaned by Shao Kahn's conquest, Rain grew up under the protection of the Edenian Resistance. An exceptional fighter, he soon rose through their ranks. As his reputation grew, so did his arrogance. When Rain demanded leadership of the Resistance forces, he was refused. Infuriated, he turned against his rebel comrades and betrayed them to their sworn enemy. In payment for this treason, Rain was promised his own army by the emperor Shao Kahn. Power would be his - no matter the cost.

Fix De-Sync on XBox360 with Pre-Order Skins (Updated)
by Gambid on Jul 2, 2011 :: 0 Comments

Netherrealm Studios just published an updated version of the fix to deal with the online de-sync issues with the Klassic Kostumes on XBox 360. Follow these few steps:

De-synchronization errors have been reported in online play of Mortal Kombat. The issues are specifically with the original downloads of the retail exclusive pre-order Klassic Skins. Anyone playing Mortal Kombat with the original pre-order skins installed will cause de-synchronization against anyone they play. Fixes are in progress for both platforms, with details below.

For Xbox 360
In order to fix the desynchronization errors on the Xbox 360, you must manually re-download the Klassic Kostume DLC files from the Xbox Live Marketplace. Re-downloading the Klassic Skins Pack will not fix the problem. You must re-download the original pre-order skin(s). Instructions for re-downloading:

1. Hit the guide button (XBox Logo button on controller)
2. Go to the right to the tab labelled "Settings"
3. Select "Account Management"
4. Select "Download History"
5. Select the pre-order DLC you wish to re-download.
6. Choose "download again"

If you have re-downloaded the Klassic Skins and are still experiencing desynchronization errors, it is because the person you are playing is still using the older skins. Both players must re-download the content to fix the issue.

For PS3
A patch is in progress to solve this issue for PS3 users. We expect to release the patch the week of 7/4. We will update this message once our timing is confirmed.
