The second character confirmed for the first line-up of Mortal Kombat DLCs, as seen on a leaked image with Skarlet, AND confirmed by Ed Boon, the creative director of the MK series, is Kenshi a.k.a the Blind Swordsman.
He firstly made his debut in Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance, who fought alongside Earthrealm’s warriors to get his revenge on Shang Tsung for blinding him. Despite his blindness, Kenshi wield a very powerful sword, which enhances his senses, such as hearing to make him visually see opponents and objects kind of like Batman.
After freeing Ermac from Shao Kahn’s control, he was taught by Ermac, the power of telekinesis, making him able to teleport and do awesome telekinetic throws and slams.
In the latest MK9 DLC, which is rumoured to be released sometime next week, skarlet and kenshi share the same colour, red. Kenshi’s appearance is unconfirmed in MK9, but in the leaked image of the upcoming DLC characters, he is seen with his MK: Deadly alliance costume with more defined and detailed armour.[blackbirdpie id=”70910243206467585″]
