Hans Lo, the producer for Netherrealm Studios, the maker of the upcoming Mortal Kombat has confirmed the first DLC characters planned for its upcoming 2011 fighting game.
In an interview with game news site CVG, the developer commented that Neteherrealm Studios doesn't want MK 2011's add-on content to be limited to simple costume or stage additions. He commented that they are looking into re-vamping existing characters as well as creating new ones that will become familiar overtime to the Mortal Kombat franchise fans - he mentioned that the new characters will have "all the good stuff".
"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,"
"[The two we're adding] are Kenshi, who players will recognise from previous MK games, and more excitingly we're adding Scarlet.
"Anyone who knows the history of Mortal Kombat will tell you that back in the days of the arcade - when they did just palette swap characters to come up with multiple fighters in the game - there was a glitch in one of the old arcade machines that caused the Jade/Katana/Milena female ninja to glitch and turn red.
"People always thought it was a hidden unlockable character and it wasn't, it was purely a programming glitch. They've always speculated and in fact it was the fans who named her Scarlet to begin with. She's no longer a glitch - she's an actual character, and she'll be coming pretty soon post-launch."
Another character said to be planned for the fighter is MK2 sub-boss Kintaro. Netherrealm said it'll continue to work on DLC for Mortal Kombat "as long as people are playing it".
We sure will be playing it as soon as it comes out. Netherrealm Studios has certainly taken on a huge responsability in ensuring that the upcoming Mortal Kombat 2011fulfills the expectations of its fans.
