The next kombatant DLC has been revealed at SDCC and it’s one completely out of the box that we’ve never imagined to come. Nightmare on Elm Street’s antagonist, Freddy Kreuger.
On top of the out of the box thinking, series co-founder Ed Boon says they’re always on the lookout for potential new characters. “Over the years, we’ve certainly had a number of conversations about guest characters,” said Boon during an interview with PlayStation Blog. “A number of names were run by us: Jason, Michael Meyers [sic] and all those guys. Freddy Kreuger, we felt, was the most instantly recognizable and he fits in with Mortal Kombat with his claws.” We think they made the right choice; why would anyone put the guy from So I Married An Axe Murderer in a Mortal Kombat game?
Freddy’s brutal slicing and dicing trailer can be found below. A release date for the DLC has been set on August 9 and will cost 400 Microsoft Points ($4.99), and will be free to Season Pass subscribers.
