In an article that has since been pulled from CVG, NetherRealm Studios producer Hans Lo seems to have let some new info slip about the studio's post-release plans for its upcoming fighting game, Mortal Kombat. He named the first two downloadable characters for the game, the blind, sword-toting ninja Kenshi and a new lady in red, named Scarlet.
Scarlet is perhaps the more interesting of the two potential options, though only because her origin isn't the result of careful design. In the arcade version of Mortal Kombat II, a red version of Jade, Kitana, or Mileena would occasionally load due to some sort of palette glitch. Much like any other inexplicable or unnamed character or bug in any of the early MK games, fans quickly assumed this was some sort of deliberate secret, and took to calling the character "Skarlett." With no official spelling available for the character, we'll have to wait and see how that all comes out.
Assuming the now-removed interview is accurate, Lo is also quoted as saying to expect these two add-ons relatively soon-ish after the game's launch. No price, of course, was announced for either character.
