Mortal Kombat: New DLC Characters and Leaked Character Select Screen

We have some important news for those of you planning to pick up Mortal Kombat on the Xbox 360 and PS3 next month, as we can confirm that there will be two characters coming via DLC, although we’re not sure if they will be free or paid for yet.

Without further ado, we can confirm that the two characters are Kenshi and Scarlet, as reported from VG247. Those of you who played Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance will recognise the name Kenshi, as he is the blind warrior wielding a Katana sword and possessing telekinetic powers.

Scarlet on the other hand, you may not be too familar with. She actually first appeared in Mortal Kombat 2 as a glitch when selecting Kitana and Mileena. Scarlet was essentially a red version of Kitana and Mileena, but we’re guessing that she’ll now have her own personality and set of moves which will make her unique in the MK universe.

It’s worth pointing out that MK creator Ed Boon has already stated that these two characters will not be contained on the game disc. There is often a heated debate which ensues once DLC is announced prior to the game’s release, with many arguing that the content should be featured on the full game, rather than having to pay on top for the extra goodies.

On a side note, we’ll also been made aware that there is an apparent image going around which shows the entire character roster for the first time. Obviously this isn’t official yet, but if it is true – then there are many characters which are yet to be announced, like Sheeva, Ninja Smoke, Human Smoke and possibly Kabal too. Take a look here and let us know if you think it’s legit or not, and which characters you can make out from the scan.
