Mortal Kombat 'Kenshi' due July 5

Mortal Kombat is paving the way for its next kombatant, the blind warrior Kenshi. NetherRealm Studios has announced that the new downloadable character will be available July 5 on Xbox Live, and July 6 on PlayStation Network for $5 (400 Microsoft Points). If you want to save a few bucks on DLC for the Xbox 360 version, you can get the Season Pass for all four characters.

Each downloadable character is set to come alongside a free Klassic Skins compatibility pack, as previously announced. Unfortunately, NetherRealm made no mention of which skins will be included in this set.

Today's announcement was also accompanied by a new trailer showing Kenshi in action and hinting at his Fatalities. If the ones from the recently released character Skarlet are any indication, they're going to be messy.
