Mystery Mortal Kombat DLC Character Is...

Posted on Thursday, July 21 @ 15:14:48 Eastern by


The 4th Mortal Kombat DLC character has been revealed at a live Comic-Con panel by series co-creator, Ed Boon. But it's so ridiculous, I don't even want to say who it is.

(You can do this, Anthony... Be strong...)

Please, someone perform a fatality on me to put me out of my misery! Ah, fuck it. The fourth Mortal Kombat DLC character is Freddy Krueger... Seriously... Go ahead, double check the date. We're not in some April Fool's Day infinite time paradox. This is not a dream (although it certainly is a nightmare). The months of speculation and anticipation have amounted to this: A Washed-Up '80s Horror Icon.

I get it, he's an iconic figure, he's got those claw hand thingies. But seriously, Boon? Seriously, NetherRealm Studios? You really thought this was a good idea?

Just when I thought Mortal Kombat was back and better than ever, this happens. So much for a Mortal Kombat just for the hardcore MK fans.

I was planning on announcing who won the Guess Who Haiku with this announcement, but no one guessed it would be Freddy Krueger, and no one could have guessed it, either. I'll announce the not-winner who still gets the value card, but I need a little while to digest this horrible news.

Now excuse me while I break something of mind that's Mortal Kombat related. Nothing expensive, though. 

(Not sure if you could tell, but I'm pretty upset over this announcement.)

Oh and BTW, here's a trailer for him. I can't look.
