Although rumored, this is still a nice surprise for horror fans. It was revealed today that the next playable character DLC for Mortal Kombat is none other than Freddy Krueger. We have more details and a gameplay video for you to check out.

Available on August 9th, Freddy will be available as DLC on Xbox Live (400 Pts) and the Playstation Network ($4.99). The only odd thing about release is that the character skin looks to be Freddy from the new film and not the original series. However, we're hoping that they have alternate "classic" character skins which will take care of that. Take a look at the gameplay trailer below [Thanks, MK Online]:
