Speaking to CVG, Mortal Kombat producer Hans Lo revealed the first two DLC characters scheduled to debut in Netherrealm’s upcoming game. Slated for release are Kenshi and Scarlet.

“Anyone who knows the history of Mortal Kombat will tell you that back in the days of the arcade – when they did just palette swap characters to come up with multiple fighters in the game – there was a glitch in one of the old arcade machines that caused the Jade/Katana/Milena female ninja to glitch and turn red,” explained Lo. “People always thought it was a hidden unlockable character and it wasn't, it was purely a programming glitch. They've always speculated and in fact it was the fans who named her Scarlet to begin with. She's no longer a glitch - she's an actual character, and she'll be coming pretty soon post-launch.”

Lo continued to explain that DLC characters won’t boast a fresh coat of paint on the same old move set. Each will have their own unique fighting style, fatalities, and so on.

Sub-boss Kintaro is also expected to release as DLC, but not alongside the first pair of fighters.

Mortal Kombat hits retail April 19.
