    @xhavoc86: Thanks for sharing the link.
    I have to say he looks alot like Liu Kang wearing a blindfold and with shorter hair.

    he's more awesome than that! :) 
     
    I'm not big on his current redesign though, hopefully they will add alternates for the dlc characters as well.

    Wow, I thought they were gonna make Kenshi pretty much a clone of Ermac. He looks like an awesome character-range of some of his attacks may be slightly too good though.

    Nice, love the bit of tossing the person at the camera & having the glass break slightly. Not a big fan of him in the past but seems to be interesting to play.

    Embedded the video for the lazy.

    Also, I'm excited. The first fatality they show was a bit of a surprise.

    i like how the dlc characters are fresh and unique.  Street fighter could learn a thing or two and stop rehashing shotoken characters.

    He looks cool, just wish you could try the characters out before buying them. I recently started playing this game again, and I kinda want some new fighters to play around with, but I'm not going to spend 6 dollars on someone who I might not enjoy playing.

    Yeah, I was wondering how they'd handle that, but they seem to have done a great job making him unique. He's been one of my favourites from the newer games.

    ...then there would be no dlc. ZING. I kid.
     
    In any case, so far I say it looks like they're 2/2 for the dlc chars. Lovin Skarlet and Kenshi looks like he'll be a ton of fun. Can't wait to see what else they have in store.

    I'm in.  As far as "extended characters" go for MK, Kenshi was always my favorite.  Plus, I main Noob and this guy seems to fit my style perfectly.

    It was mentioned during Skarlet's release and reconfirmed on twitter today, there will be additional Klassic kostumes released alongside Kenshi's release... I'm assuming they will be free and part of his compatibility pack, though im sure everyone is gonna get him right...!? lol

    I totally agree. I'm so glad they've given him his own unique moves along with Skarlet and the rest of the cast.  
     
    I can't wait for next Tuesday. :)

    I think the next klassic kostumes are Smoke and Noob and I think Ed Boon said they'd be free as well on his twitter.

    I would like to see a klassic Kano, if only because of how much he has changed. Most of the others look generally the same, just updated, where as Kano has been completely redesigned.

    Hoping we see classic Kano, Stryker, Rayden and MK3 Sub-zero (since his alternate costume is just a pallet swap of Noob anyway).

    er.... I don't know about that, i like Stryker how he is now, not sure if i want to revisit that one...
     
    I personally want Johnny Cage's original look, the one with the shorts...would be nice, plus without the tattoo even though i think its awesome lol

    Really hope we don't end up with another Noob Saibot on our hands. Sure his moves look cool, but hopefully they'll actually be useful.

    I'm not really liking this trend of such weapon-heavy characters. It throws off the balance, since weapons naturally give you a range advantage. I have the same problem with Kitana. Her fans give her a crazy reach.
