In a move not many saw coming, At Comic Con 2011, Warner and NetherRealm studios have announced the fourth downloadable character for the acclaimed Mortal Kombat as Freddy Krueger, the scissor-handed, dream-invading villain from the Nightmare on Elm Street movies.
Of course Mortal Kombat is still refused classification here in Australia, but we know that plenty of you have imported the game from less-censored shores so look out for Freddy in August at a US$5 price point or as part of the season pass bundle.
It's somewhat surprising to see a Warner film character in the game as the DC Comic characters (Superman, Batman and co) featured in the previous game were largely criticised due to the absence of the franchises signature fatality moves. Obviously WB doesn't have the same qualms about letting poor old Freddy get eviscerated.
The bad news is that Freddy is reportedly the final DLC character for the game. If more Warner licenses could make the cut who would you like to see? Beetlejuice, Shrek, Bugs Bunny?
