[Video] ‘Part 3’ Character Shelly is Coming to ‘Friday the 13th: The Game’!

One of the most beloved characters in the Friday the 13th franchise is Shelly Finkelstein, who of course brought the iconic hockey mask to the series in Part 3. If you’ve ever wanted to play as Shelly in Friday the 13th: The Game, he’s coming soon!

The game’s developers just revealed tonight that Shelly will be added into the game as a playable counselor with the next patch, which will be FREE OF CHARGE.

And yes, Larry Zerner reprised the role to voice the character!

Shelly Finkelstein will be coming back to Camp Crystal Lake to troll his fellow counselors…that is until Jason shows up! Get Shelly for free with the latest patch!” they tweeted tonight. “The latest update will be coming for PS4 and Steam on Monday, Dec. 18th with the Xbox One patch to follow shortly.”

  • There should be an option that allows you to use make-up as Shelly to appear dead. That forces the Jason player to remember if he already killed you or not.

    • J.J.

      That wouldn’t really clash well with Jason’s sense ability. If he can sense you hiding from a mile away pretty sure make up isn’t going to fool him.

  • J Jett

    even though i don’t play this game, i think it would be far cooler to have F13 part 3’s Vera as a character in this. she was awesome in that movie!

    • jasonlives1986

      Sexy.

      I know you meant sexy.

      • J Jett

        LOL! that’s so true! she was most definitely sexy/gorgeous! 🙂

    • Likenesses. Not as easy to obtain as one would think. Still, it’s great when they can obtain recognisable characters.

      • J.J.

        I would love J.J. Jarrett to be in the game and the Flying V guitar to be a weapon but the actress Saffron Henderson seems to distance herself away from the franchise like she’s ashamed, I mean she answers fan questions but she never does interviews or conventions relating to it. The closest I could find on her mentioning the film was in some Anime voice actors interview where she said something like “I was in a a couple of horrors, it was a Jason one, I won’t tell you which but I died within the first 5 minutes, same story with The Fly II first 5 minutes I died after giving birth to a larva, it keeps happening to me haha”. Sounds like she was kinda bitter about always getting small roles of girls that died early. Plus she’s a mom now and tends to only do child-friendly stuff now like children’s cartoon voice-overs.

    Obsessing over part 3 much?

    Broaden the horizon with characters damnit

    • Jordan

      Exactly…we got Fox, Mitch is based off of Chuck, and even Jenny is based off of Chris Higgins. Part 3 must be a real favorite from the devs. Really hoping the next female counselor is Trish Jarvis.

      • J Jett

        Trish or Ginny (my personal fave) would be awesome!

      • J.J.

        Pamela head and voice – Part 2
        Tommy Jarvis – Part 6 version
        Tiffany – clearly based on the Part 4 twins
        A.J. – clearly a mix between Part 5’s Violet and Part 8’s J.J. Jarrett
        Chad – clearly based on Trent from the remake
        Deborah – clearly based on Maddy from Part 7
        “The 1st Victim” – Rob Dier from Part 4
        The rest are based on high tier backers

        So there are more films being referenced than just Part 3.

  • discochic

    probably because part 3 is the best in the whole series with the most memorable characters. Deal with it.

    • J.J.

      Most people and critics chose either Part 1, The Final Chapter or Jason Lives when talking about the best in the series.

      • dukeblues

        Most people don’t consider part 1 great. Part 3 is easily in the top 2, with the Final Chapter being the other great one.

        • J.J.

          Never met a F13 fan that said Part 1 sucked. I’m sure it’s rarely people’s number 1 pick but it’s definitely respected by all fans and normally in every fan’s top 5 at least.

    • discochic

      I appreciate the 1st for what it is, and as a standalone who dunnit film it’s great, but my choice for top 5 are 3,5,1,6 and 2.

  • EmPleH

    Although I am glad they are adding free characters and trying to fix bugs/glitches, but are they ever going to release single player campaign?

    • It’s a small team with limited manpower, which is why it’s best to take any release window they announce with a grain of salt. According to the content roadmap they put out, offline bots should be released any day now… But we’ve heard nothing. Single Player Challenges will supposedly be released separately in 2018. Patience is a virtue with indie games like this.

    • J.J.

      Dude it’s a multiplayer game and built to be multiplayer. Shut the hell up about single player story-modes already.

      • dukeblues

        Some of us don’t feel like playing against a bunch of 12 year olds out there. Single player would be great.

        • Tommy Brownell

          Playing offline as Jason against AI counselors is part of Monday’s patch.

          • John Connor

            If only you didn’t need the internet to play it offline.
            If only that was on the physical copy that’s bought offline.

        • J.J.

          It’s a double-edged sword at least with multiplayer you get unique matches as everyone’s different with different techniques you don’t know the other counselors play style unlike A.I. bots whose behavior and technique can be learned. Even very difficult games like Dark Souls you can finish bosses without taking a single hit because you learn every move the A.I. has and can anticipate it. Single player would get boring very quickly as it would show how little the game has to offer.

        • J Jett

          dukeblues, exactly! i agree w/ you 100%.

      • EmPleH

        It’s my first time asking the question or are you blaming me for every other person that’s asked it before me. I am not shitting on the game, just curious . Thanks for your response though.

        • J.J.

          It should be obvious from playing the game that it’s not built for single player.

      • J Jett

        JJ don’t be a douche.

  • Amy Kat

    Do we have the option to kill Shelly when we are not playing as Jason? I would love to get my digital hands on the series’ most annoying character!

  • Adam Clifton

    And Freddy Krueger hasn’t appeared in this game because…

    • J.J.

      It’s a Friday the 13th game…..

      • Adam Clifton

        Freddy Vs Jason is technically a Friday the 13th movie

        • J.J.

          No it’s a crossover movie. It is neither a Nightmare on Elm Street or Friday the 13th film. With all the money needed to make this game do you really they’re even going to attempt to buy the rights to use Freddy? Rights to iconic characters aren’t cheap and this is just an indie kickstarter game.

    • Hayden Koutras

      keep freddy away from this game. the game focuses on the entire friday series, and so many people like you think that because Freddy Vs Jason happened he’s now part of the franchise? sure, there was a movie with Freddy and Jason but that movie doesn’t properly fit into either series. so tired of hearing people suggest Freddy be in this game.

  • Alex

    That’s awesome! Any news on a single player offline mode yet? I’ve had the game for a while now but can’t play it.

    • J.J.

      Why did you buy a multiplayer game with no intention of playing online?

      • Alex

        Because I read that offline mode was gonna be available.I don’t have internet at home.So the offline mode is being added Monday? So I guess to play it I just need to add the latest patch.im very much looking forward to playing it

        • J.J.

          It’s not really built to be a single player game. You just wasted your money, the single player mode will be very limited as I can’t imagine you can really do much with the game in terms of single player.

  • Will Coors

    I want Tina!

  • J.J.

    They should put Tina in the game and have all her powers so you could actually fight Jason.

  • Dennis Giles

    So this game can’t be played in offline/single player mode ?
    I have PS4/p.c ..

    • Saturn

      Not as yet – but I remember reading somewhere (possibly on BD) that a single player mode is coming.

      • Tommy Brownell

        Monday, with this patch.

        • Saturn

          A nice treat just in time for
          Chr…Chr…Chr…smas..smas,,smas then?

          • J.J.

            *throws tomato*

          • Saturn

            ***takes tomato, says thank you, and proceeds to make a nice marinara sauce…..***

          • Munchie Strikes Back

            I misread this as marijuana sauce at first and thought that you’d be very skilled if you could do that with a tomato.

          • Saturn

            Actually, as I’m vegan, I had to learn how to make food more interesting, and that is one way……. 😉

            Of course I jest – drugs are bad, m’kay?

  • Will Coors

    Btw everyone, offline bots come monday dec 18th !!!!!! 🙂

  • Josh Blitzenbrox Myers

    Oh man I cannot WAIT to kill this guy

    A lot..,

    • Will Coors

      hahaha same

  • Necro

    I know likeness and all that stuff can be hard to get depending on the actor/actress, but hopefully over time (I think they’ve done a great job thus far personally) they get every character possible from every film they can for this game.

  • J.J.

    So they couldn’t figure out how to implement a wheelchair bound counselor as originally planned then?

  • Flu-Like Symptoms

    Love this. And funny how Shelly is much more Larry than he actually is Shelly, but that would happen to anyone after 30+ years. Looking forward to his debut and also finally offline bots. It’ll be great to go on a killing spree without bot #1 pulling the plug on the match after they’re killed.

  • The_Terrific_Triffid

    They might want to sort the connection to server issues, and host quitters first. You know, learn to walk before learning to dance.
