Mortal Kombat breaks our brains by announcing Freddy Krueger as DLC fighter

The rumors swirling around were true: Freddy Krueger is joining the cast of Mortal Kombat as a downloadable character. The dreamy killer is heading to 360 and PS3 August 9 and you can get the star of Nightmare on Elm Street for 400 points/$4.99. As a fighter, the scarred one will have two unique fatalities and an arcade ladder story ending. Watch the guy in action in the video below:

The inclusion of Freddy sets an insane precedent for who can be added to the game. Does this mean Jason Voorhees is coming soon? The Friday the 13th killer seems like a no brainer, but why stop there? Why not Michael Myers from Halloween, or Ash from Evil Dead, or even Neo from the Matrix? On a day as crazy as this, the possibilities seem endless.
