Fans of the Mortal Kombat series, whose favorite characters are not included in the games standard 28 playable character roster, will be happy to hear that the first wave of downloadable combatants have been confirmed.
As such, Enthusiasts can soon expect to see Kenshi, and Scarlett (the fabled lady in red*) join the ranks of playable characters. Furthermore, speaking to CVG in a recent interview Mortal Kombat producer Hans Lo reassured fans that the DLC combatants would be unique, saying, “They won’t be copy and pasted from characters already in the game – they’re going to have their own unique fighting styles, moves, fatalities and x-rays – all the good stuff,”
While there are rumors about, that MK2 sub-boss Kintaro might be another character in the works, nothing has been confirmed as of yet. Netherrealm has however suggested that they will continue to work on DLC for the reboot “as long as people are playing it”.
* “The lady in red” aptly named Scarlett by MK fans, was rumored to be a secret character in MK2, appearing briefly in Khans arena. The rumor was later debunked and said to be a coding glitch based on Kitana.
