New MK Story Vignette Explains the Blind Swordsman’s Origins

on June 30, 2011 7:00 PM

NetherRealm recently released an exciting game play trailer featuring Mortal Kombat‘s newest DLC character Kenshi and anyone who’s seen said trailer probably wants to know a bit about him. Blind samurai aren’t exactly an overused staple in fighting games, so this is understandable. The new story vignette looks to alleviate this, by explaining Kenshi’s origins and how he became blind in the first place.

It involves Shang Tsung, so that should explain a good amount on its own. It also details that awesome sword of his. Check out the vid after the break. Kenshi will be available for download on July 5th, for both versions of Mortal Kombat.
