I can't believe I'm writing this: you can now download Nightmare on Elm Street's Freddy Krueger for Mortal Kombat.
The downloadable dream killer is available for both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 for 400 MS Points or $4.99. If you've previously purchased the "Season Pass" for Xbox 360, he's the final character in that fighter bunch. PS3 gets its own package, as well, with the $14.99 warrior Bundle that features three other characters: Kenshi, Rain, and Skarlet.
Krueger being a fighter in Mortal Kombat is probably the most ridiculous thing I can imagine, and for that very reason, I'm sold on the idea. To those who say he doesn't belong in the Mortal Kombat universe, I say stop for a moment and think about what you're saying. It's a videogame about fictional ninjas and robots and monsters that tear each other apart. It's about fun, always has been, and as far as I'm concerned, just about anything goes.
What other characters would you like to see appear in Mortal Kombat? My vote goes to a Predator.
