Freddy Krueger Coming to Mortal Kombat

The next downloadable character for Mortal Kombat is Freddy Krueger, the dude with the knives on his fingers from A Nightmare on Elm Street. Where's Jason? IGN reports that Freddy will be downloadable on August 9 as part of a multi-character bundle ( a standalone downloadable character; my fault for the error, folks, not IGN).



I don't understand any negativity here.

He's violent, he has claws, he can make blood happen. He's a perfect fit, right? Or are we having a "lore" problem, about as silly as being upset over Yoda in Soul Calibur...
