    For months, folks have been wondering who the fourth and final downloadable fighter would be in Mortal Kombat. Today, we know, and it's batcrap insane. Freddy Krueger -- the dream-invading, claw-wearing murderer from the A Nightmare on Elm Street film franchise -- is coming to Mortal Kombat on Aug. 9, 2011.

    This Freddy rocks two claws and appears to be based more on the 2010 Freddy reboot than the classic Robert Englund look. If previous downloadable characters are any indication, Freddy Krueger in Mortal Kombat will set you back 400 Microsoft points or $4.99 on the PlayStation Network.[/p]

    This is rather odd, never expected Freddy to appear in a MK game.

    It's odd, but also oddly fitting. Freddy Krueger is a nightmarish figure (lolpun) that is very violent, can rock the claws like a boss, and fits in fairly well with the ultraviolence (see what I did there? much love for getting the reference) that defines the Mortal Kombat games.

    After that terrible movie, I don't think the two will ever be in the same space at the same time ever again.

    A Clockwork Orange?

    Freddy Kreuger seems to fit in these type of games. His fatality looks cool

    Freddie will eat Scream alive. literally. like swallow him feet first, lol.

    anyways, if Jason is jumping the bandwagon, i want the Full Metal Jason X version, with nano-tech metal body parts and bleeding edge razor sharp machete.
