Mortal Kombat meets Freddy

There had been talks and rumours in the past of the dream demon making his way to the Mortal Kombat fold but nothing was confirmed. However, today IGN has confirmed that Freddy Krueger will be joining the Mortal Kombat game as a downloadable character for 400 MS points of $4.99 on the Playstation network.

But, there is something that doesn’t sit right, at least with me. This Freddy Krueger appears to be based more on the 2010 Freddy Krueger as opposed to Robert Englund’s legendary take on the character. It should also be noted that Krueger has two gloves in the game.

Freddy Krueger will be available for download on August 9th.
