Warner Bros Interactive announce Nightmare on Elm Streets' Freddy Krueger as the final playable character to be included in Mortal Kombat via digital download.

The next downloadable Mortal Kombat character pack featuring "Rain" is set to become available to purchase and download via Xbox LIVE on July 19th. Mortal Kombat 2 inspired Jade and Kitana skins to be available same day.
Originally meant to be available as a playable character in Mortal Kombat 3, but didn't actually appear until Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, "Rain" was a character first shown in the Mortal Kombat's attract mode but did not actually exist within the game itself. Rain finally made an actual appearance in the console versions of Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, and Mortal Kombat Trilogy as a full-fledged character with his own history.
"Rain" was taken as a refugee by the Edenian Resistance. While he fought for them and quickly rose the ranks, his arrogance grew along with him and when he demanded leadership of its forces and was denied, he willingly betrayed his realm for power by allying himself with Shao Kahn who promised Rain leadership of his own army.
You can preview a few of his upcoming moves in the official DLC trailer just below.
