The once-mythical Skarlet, borne of a glitch and left in limbo for more than a decade, will be a playable character in Mortal Kombat when she arrives as downloadable content on PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade on June 21st. Here's a trailer featuring her backstory and showing off some of her blood-based attacks.
I had a chance to play about with Skarlet a bit at E3. She has great air defense working in her favor and manages to feel different enough from the other ladies. You can grab her for $4.99 or 400 MS points when she releases next week alongside a second content pack with a pair of classic character skins for Cyrax and Sektor.
