UPDATE: Downloading Freddy will cost you 400 MS points or $5.00 off of PSN.
ORIGINAL STORY: Mortal Kombat 9 is a pretty fantastic game in the series and one of the best 2d fighters in recent memory. The game has garnered support with a good stream of DLC providing us with Rain, Kenshi, Skarlet, etc. Well, now we have a new fighter joining the tournament, and he has never been in the series (or any game that I am aware of that is worth mentioning.) From Nightmare on Elm Street fame, MK9 gets: Freddy Krueger!
No, this is not one of the nightmares he attacks you in, this is real life. You cannot wake up to escape him this time. The trailer was just released showing him doing his best wolverine impression as he slices and dices up other kombatants. I personally hate this inclusion. At least Kratos is from an actual videogame, but Freddy Krueger? Maybe now we will get Jason I guess? Oh well, I guess you don’t HAVE to download him. This new character will be available on August 9th. The trailer is posted below, so leave your comments to let us know what you think.
