Comic-Con 2011: Freddy Krueger coming to Mortal Kombat as DLC

The fourth character coming to Mortal Kombat as DLC was never announced – until today, at Comic-Con. NetherRealm Studios has already released 3 downloadable characters to the MK roster (Scarlet, Kenshi, and Rain), and this final fourth character is a bit of a surprise. 

Freddy Krueger is the next fighter to enter the tournament, sporting his iconic fedora, red and green sweater, and metal claws. See Freddy in action in the trailer below.

Freddy’s got two of his metal-shears-gloves on in the game, and seems to look a little more like the recent iteration of Krueger from the 2010 remake of the film; A Nightmare on Elm Street.

Freddy will be available for download on August 9, for $4.99 (based on what previously released characters cost).
