Mortal Kombat Freddy Krueger DLC

This is no joke. The 4th Mortal Kombat DLC character is Freddy Krueger, the man who kills you in you sleep.

"Rorschach is not trapped with you. You're trapped here with Rorschach!"

A very strange choice but it fits the gore of the Mortal Kombat universe and Nether Realms gave Freddy some very interesting attacks. Sort of an otherworldy Wolverine or sorts with claws that can increase in size and pop out of the ground. And I think Freddy is the first character who trailer showed a full fatality. I mean throwing a man in a large burning furnace after stabbing his stomach and neck with bladed fingers and then shutting the door on him while his arm is still out. Definitely something out of a horror movie.

Bravo Nether Realm, I think it's safe to say that you surprised us all, Freddy becomes available for download on August 9th on Xbox Live and PSN.
