Today at Comic-Con the final downloadable character for Mortal Kombat was announced. The new fighter will be none other than the master of nightmares himself FREDDY KRUEGER! This is more than a pleasant surprise for most fans of the franchise. The current game lineup consists only of traditional MK fighters. With the addition of Freddy, Warner Bros. Interactive and NetherRealm Studios are hoping to add some extra flavor to the game and few dollars in their pockets as well. If early buzz is any indication this downloadable character should help add quite a few sales to the title.
The game version of Freddy sports two claws and looks to be based off of the resent reboot of the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise. The character will be available for download on August 9th. Check out the game play trailer below to see the Nightmare of Elm Street in action.
