- Sony's Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman
has posted up a video today featuring Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon
speaking on Freddy Krueger in the PlayStation 3 title along with the secret origins of the PS3 DLC characters.
To quote: In discussing the news, Boon shed light on the long, sometimes tangled genesis of Mortal's Kombat
's other DLC characters - namely Rain, Skarlet, and Kenshi.
One began as a joke, one was an incorrect rumor, and one... well, you'll see.
Look for Freddy to hit PSN on August 9th for $4.99, and read on for my full chat with Ed Boon.
So what is the inspiration for bringing Freddy Krueger to Mortal Kombat as a DLC character?
Ed Boon, Creative Director, Netherrealm Studios:
It was a number of things. It's kind of hard to choose a character who would fit well into the Mortal Kombat
universe, with the blood and violence that's so associated with it. Kratos from God of War is a brutal, bloody character, so he makes sense.
When we had the discussions about the DLC characters, we knew that we wanted to add a returning character, a new character, but also a guest character....
