Toys R Us [Wrongly] Advertise DLC Characters Coming Wednesday!

05/02/2011 :: Posted at 06:13 PM by Mick-Lucifer
Kenshi and Skarlet to Headline First Wave of Mortal Kombat DLC! Date Unknown!

With unspecified services expected to resume Tuesday after a string of hacker-related controversies; PlayStation Network may go live in time for the first wave of Mortal Kombat downloadable content extras coming soon to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3!

Toys 'R' Us Advertise Coming DLC!GamesRadar have drawn attention toward a Toys 'R' Us sale catalogue [pictured right] revealing the advertised Wednesday availability of new downloadable characters. Previous reports reveal the first wave will include complete builds for Kenshi and the much discussed Lady in Red, Skarlet, with the potential for a playable version of Kintaro still rumored.

EDIT: The official twitter (@MK_MortalKombat) has somewhat put the kibosh on an immediate date for release with their tweet, "Skarlet does not come out on Tuesday. Trust me, we will let you know when she is ready." No reason for the discrepancy has been provided.

Producer Hans Lo told CVG that NetherRealm Studios are committed to more than mere costumes and background tweaks. Fully realised additional characters are their primary interest, with the gamut of moves and features expected of any fighter to be included.

"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..."

Lady in Red a Late Addition Despite Early Teasers

Kenshi -- blind sword saint introduced in 2002's Deadly Alliance -- will mark the first expansion of the games' roster beyond Mortal Kombat 4. Skarlet is the first original character to be added to the main roster, the realization of an old arcade rumor based on a supposed glitch. Pictured in chains in Shao Kahn's Koliseum [full story], Skarlett was the subject of much speculation, fuelled by a teaser image posted by series co-creator, Ed Boon.

Given the uncertain situation surrounding system online function, information concerning DLC may be subject to change.

Update May 26: Ed Boon has confirmed [via Twitter] that Skarlet will be a playable character at the WB booth at this year's E3 (June 7-9). A trailer showcasing her moves will be available Monday. The DLC update is expected to also contain patches for online modes and gameplay tweaks [full story]. A "klassic" costume and fatality pack will also be made available soon, with a trailer coming tomorrow [full story].

Mortal Kombat was released for home consoles April 19 (US), April 21 (EU). Mortal Kombat Online will continue to follow updates on DLC and online accessibility. Follow us on Twitter, @MK_Online.
