Mortal Kombat: Freddy Krueger DLC Announcement

Yesterday in the comments on Joshua Caleb’s excellent post on Retro Remakes, our own Retroist made mention of a bit of news some of you might have missed. It is true that Frederick Charles Krueger will indeed be available for download on August 9th as a DLC fighter in the new Mortal Kombat game.

Now that the doors have been opened with Freddy Krueger how long will we have to wait until Jason Voorhees or possibly the greatest protector against demons that mankind has ever known, Ashley J. Williams, can be made available as DLC fighters as well? Probably quite some time as Freddy is owned by Warner Bros. the same company that owns the rights to Mortal Kombat and Jason and Ash are not. It would be great though to have all three characters to choose from!

Thanks to IGN for posting the video over on YouTube and Joystiq for the pic up top!
