Skarlet debuts on Official Website!Ed Boon might be talking about the potential future for Mortal Kombat, but right now the focus is squarely on downloadable content and the debut of first of four characters, Skarlet!

The bloodsoaked beauty has joined the ranks of the official website, where a new character render and biography text can be found.

Once a fan-imagined rumor, Skarlet has become a full fledged fighter in the MK canon, an enforcer for Shao Kahn created from warriors blood! Her plotlines bring her close to Quan Chi, whose machinations have stretched across the entire MK timeline.

Shao Kahn has many warriors under his command, but his trust lies solely in the fighters of his own creation. Warrior blood gathered from countless battlefields, fused with sorcery, produced his most effective enforcer yet: Skarlet.

An expert tracker, she preys on those deemed enemies of the empire. During kombat, Skarlet gains strength from her opponent's blood, absorbing it through her skin. Shao Kahn has a new mission for this formidable kombatant: discover Quan Chi's true intentions and kill him if he plots betrayal of the emperor.

Gamespot have three new screenshots from the E3 floor, featuring Skarlet in combat against Johnny Cage and her male precursor, Ermac.

With no official date for the release of Skarlet as DLC, you'll have to make do with screenshots and the announcement trailer. The Klassic Costume DLC pack is currently available for both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 for a $4.99US value [full story].
