Well this sure is unexpected: Warner Bros. Interactive and NetherRealm Studios have announced that Freddy Krueger is joining the world of Mortal Kombat. No, not in some truly bizarro crossover film, but as a downloadable character for the most recent Mortal Kombat game. He'll be available for roughly $4.99 on either Xbox 360 or PS3 starting August 9th.
Do the world of A Nightmare on Elm Street and Mortal Kombat colliding make any sense? No, of course not. But then again, when has Mortal Kombat ever even really made sense? It's all about beating fools to a bloody pulp, and nobody does that better than 'ole fingerknives.
