Seems like the growing trend in fighting games is to have DLC characters release after to maintain interest in the game, and Mortal Kombat is no exception. Dated for next week on June 21st for Xbox 360 and PS3 is the first paid downloadable character, Skarlet. She is the first of several more DLC characters to come, including Kenshi, Rain, and an already confirmed, but unnamed fighter. These characters will arrive individually on separate dates.
Like fighters before it, Warner Bros. Interactive will also release a compatibility pack so that those with and without the download can still play against each other. This compatibility pack will also give players free skins for their respective systems as well. The first pack contains skins that feature Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3-inspired Cyrax and Sektor.
