Freddy, Not Jason, Confirmed For Mortal Kombat!
We wrote about the possibility of Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees appearing as downloadable characters in the new Mortal Kombat video game back on April 20th, but since then nothing has been officially confirmed. Well, thanks to IGN.com and SDCC, we can confirm that Freddy is indeed part of the new Mortal Kombat game, but Jason is not!
Talk about disappointing, that now the only major modern horror icon to not have a developing video game or not appearing in an offshoot is Jason Voorhees. We have to believe at some point that Jason is destined for the digital gaming realm, officially. That being said, you have to check out the Mortal Kombat footage of Freddy released by IGN below.
Freddy is kicking a lot of, well, you get the point. Imagine Jason Voorhees in this game now! Wow!
