Earlier today, we announced that Ed Boone has released the first real key to what’s coming in Mortal Kombat 11. “Queen is giving you her first key to what’s coming for MK11. #ActualKlue # 1
In Ed Boone’s latest tweet, he released the second “key” to what lies ahead in Mortal Kombat 11. “Second Klue is this movie trailer, but I can tell you it’s not Freddie Krueger. # MortalKombat11 #ActualKlue # 2 “.

Twitter has a link to YouTube’s Nightmare on Elm Street trailer for YouTube (R-rated movie). If it weren’t for Boon, who doesn’t directly confirm Freddy Krueger, it could be assumed that the hero is finally returning to the Mortal Kombat series.
Freddie Krueger first appeared in Mortal Kombat 9 as the latest DLC character. The horror movie icon was eventually the first guest character to appear in one of NetherRealm Studios’ fighting games, excluding Kratos from the God of War series when he debuted in the PlayStation 3 version at launch.
Since then, other horror movie icons such as Jason Vurhis, Alien, Predator and Leather Face have become feature films in the Mortal Kombat series, seeming to be a direct result of Freddie Krueger’s success in Mortal Kombat 9. Freddie Krueger does not reappear Mortal Kombat title from his debut in Mortal Kombat 9.
Ed Boone, using a horror movie trailer, is thought to be a direct allusion to another horror movie icon. One possibility is Ash Wiliiams from Evil Dead and Army of Darkness.
During the 1984 film Nightmare on Elm Street, the protagonist can be seen watching Evil Dead. Of course, it should be noted that this particular scene does not appear during the linked trailer.
At one point in the trailer, a woman rises into the air before being dragged across the ceiling. Given Ermac’s tendency to raise opponents through its telekinetic capabilities, this may be an indication of Ermac’s involvement.
Similarly, Rain is also armed with the ability to levitate enemies thanks to its Mind Control Orb (later renamed Water Bubble). If there were any hints of Rain for Mortal Kombat 11, then it might be more appropriate to refer to Purple Rain, although this may also be a little obvious.
Following the release of Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath Edition, Ed Boone commented on Twitter, explaining that NetherRealm Studios was “not even able to work” with Mortal Kombat 11.
Late last month, a claim by a data miner backed Boon’s statement, as he said there were at least eight more character slots yet to be filled. This seems to suggest the presence of “Kombat Pack 3”.
Given that Boon has directly confirmed that the good news is on its way in September, many fans are expecting big revelations about Mortal Kombat 11 later this month.
