Mortal Kombat’s next DLC character is Freddy Krueger

Well, here’s something that I couldn’t have seen coming in a million years: Warner Bros. Interactive announced out of San Diego Comic Con that Mortal Kombat‘s fourth DLC character will be none other than Freddy Krueger from Nightmare on Elm Street.

Freddy’s scheduled to make his special guest appearance in the Mortal Kombat universe sometime in August for $4.99 on PlayStation Network, 400 Microsoft Points on Xbox Live.

I imagine you’ll want to see this for yourself, so check the trailer below to see Freddy Krueger in action.
