Freddy Krueger is MKs Fourth DLC Character
The first three downloadable characters for Mortal Kombat werent entirely new -- Rain and Kenshi were both in previous games, and Skarlet was in Mortal Kombat II, albeit as what amounted to a glitch. NetherRealm had been keeping the identity of the fourth character close to its chest. Today it finally revealed who the last of the bunch will be: Freddy Krueger, of A Nightmare on Elm Street fame, is joining the games cast of fighters.
Unfortunately, Krueger looks to be based on the 2010, Michael Bay-produced A Nightmare on Elm Street, as opposed to Wes Cravens 1984 original. The older film saw Krueger played by Robert Englund, whereas last year the role was assumed by Jack E. Haley, who also played Rorschach in Watchmen.
Disappointing as that may be, this is still Frederick Charles Krueger youll be playing as in Mortal Kombat -- fatalities and all. Like the previous DLC characters, he will cost $4.99 (400 Microsoft Points) upon release on August 9.
