Mortal Kombat for the Sony PlayStation 3 and Microsoft Xbox 360 has been expanded with a variety of downloadable characters since it's release earlier this year, and while the add-on kombatants have all been series stalwarts, the final kharacter to join the fray is something of a guest to the Netherrealm. Freddy Kreuger of A Nightmare On Elm Street fame is taking on Sub-Zero, Scorpion, and the others with his own unique brand of terror. Here's the announcement trailer that shows off Freddy's moves, and I think for most of us, that's really all we need to see. Freddy's fatalities involve a large wood-burning stove and being dragged to Hell? Yeah, that sounds about right. One criticism: Freddy is oddly quiet in this trailer. In order to be Freddy, doesn't he need to be spouting constant one-liners and wiseass remarks? Someone get Robert Englund into the sound booth, stat!
