Mortal Kombat DLC Coming This Month

May 14, 2011 Written by Anthony Severino

At today’s PDP-sponsored (the makers of the Mortal Kombat fight stick) official Mortal Kombat National Tournament in Las Vegas, NetherRealm Studios head and Mortal Kombat co-creator, Ed Boon, shed some light on plans for the upcoming Mortal Kombat DLC.

Skilled competitors gathered today in Las Vegas, Nevada where PDP held a Mortal Kombat Nation Tournament which awards over $21,000 in prizes to the best of the best. There, Ed Boon talked briefly about Skarlett, who will be available before the end of the month. Boon also spoke of  “free stuff” which could be anything from additional alternate costumes to characters, stages, and more.

Last month, the first DLC characters were revealed to be Skarlett, a long-rumored character from Mortal Kombat II, and Kenshi, a katana-wielding ninja, who has been blinded by Shang Tsung. The MK team has said repeatedly that they’ll support the game with DLC characters as long as people are playing it.

Just under 900,000 copies of Mortal Kombat have been sold in the month of April alone, so plenty of people have made it their game of choice.
