Kenshi joins Mortal Kombat

Netherrealm Studios have revealed today, through colleagues at Gamespot, the next kombatant who will join the roster of the newest Mortal Kombat title as DLC.

Telekinesis is one of his signature abilities and it is no surprise that it has been updated, literally, to match and finish off other warriors in the arena. Check out how for yourself, because words can’t properly describe what Ed Boon and team have done – think ‘shadow’,  ‘remote’ and ‘hi-tech’:



Kenshi, the popular blind swordsman from MK: Deadly Alliance, will be the second downloadable character amongst many. Last week we have been offered the blood-hungry warrior Skarlet, who originally debuted in the series as a mere rumor/glitch, along with an online compatibility pack that includes free retro costumes for cyborg favorites Cyrax and Sektor – a.k.a Mustard and Ketchup.

In the summer weeks to come at least two more characters, with additional retro costumes for Noob Saibot and Smoke, will be joining the roster. The first character being Rain and the other…

We don’t know yet who will it be, but if I had to bet I’d go with Fujin, Tanya, Shinnok, Cyber-Smoke or someone completely new.

Kenshi will be available for download on July 5 on the Xbox Marketplace and Playstation Store for $4.99 in the US and a day later for PS3 in the EU. Stay tuned for more!

    The hell?! Kenshi?! I really wanted Shinnok

      Yeah…i had the same reaction. Shinnok would’ve been a better choice.

      Well, there was a fairly large demand for Kenshi, as well as upcoming Rain, but I can understand you. Shinnok definitely is an interesting character, although most of the time, if not the whole time, he served his purpose in the story as a boss. Plus given the fact how the story of this game ended, I think they’re saving him for an eventual sequel. Probably harder to include a boss and implement him into the game, as Ed said himself that there won’t be any new story chapters as DLC. Hard to say for sure though. But I agree it would be nice to see where the story would go from there. It has ambitions.

        Yeah I was thinking that same thing about how he’ll most likely be saved for the sequel.

        A Rain DLC would be sweet. I’m curious to see his updated fatalities.
