Awesome, I can't wait! I got the season pass so I will download him right away. It's not free though, it's just pre-ordered DLC. I was hoping he would have been more of a classic swordsman with not many powers. Just something like a more believeable character with no powers like Stryker. But he still looks really good so I can't complain.

Kenshi is awesome. One of my favorites. PS: Did he just pull a Nightwolf? He can reflect projectiles....

I think I found a new main now, sorry Smoke hit the bricks.

He'll be released with 2 klassic skins like Skarlet DLC?

Ha thats exactly what I thought when I saw the trailer. those combos and those fatalities he may be the coolest so far in my opinion. I really like the way they did the telekinesis part of him i would have never of thought to do it that way.

Very crazy. I'm guessing all those specials are from his ancestors, helping him out, but they're definitely mainly swords attack. Nice. Next week, I'm getting that damn season pass for it.

BAD ASS!!! Ooo... the sound of the blade got me all wild up inside...

The best presentation of Kenshi in all Mortal Kombat games until now with brilliant fatalities! His telekinetic moves combined with his sword are outstanding (especially the fact that he has a scabbard for the first time) It's a definite buy! Also I like the fact that they are going to release the classical palette swaps costumes with Kenshi. The question is, what will come with Rain?

Prolly MK 3 ninja costumes, hopefully all ninjas, or MK 3 costumes for others. I also hope that the MK2 ninja costumes are for all ninjas, they were my favorite ninja design. But prolly not.

AND he comes with smokes klassic outfit!! this is the best DLC yet!!!

To be honest, I've never given a crap about Kenshi, so I didn't have much in the way of expectations for this, but that was bad ass.

I was wondering about that. As expected, looks like NRS nailed it once again. Lots of swordplay along with telekinetic powers that aren't blue Ermac moves. Add him along with MK2 Noob & Smoke?? Oh boy...
June 27th, 2011 1:26 PM CST - Immortal Reaver
Guys, those are not MK2 outfits, those are MK1. MK2 outfits had paintball masks.
June 27th, 2011 1:37 PM CST - Dedamn666
that fatality looks sick. immortal reaver the smoke and noob outfits are the mk2 outfits look at the screen shots of the renders and look closely, allthough i wouldnt be suprised if they were just pallette swaps when released
June 27th, 2011 1:49 PM CST - Big Frog
Is that part when he's throwing Cage against the screen his victory?? Love that part haha

Oh yeah, my bad. I figured they were just pallete swaps of the other ones we have. Those do look like MK2 ones. I wish they were UMK3 style though. I prefer UMK3 outfits for every character.

No, that's one of his fatalities, notice the black background. His victory pose is at 0:13.

they are mk2 look at the mask and the baseball leg protection things
June 27th, 2011 2:18 PM CST - TheKombatant
Mate look at their heads. It's definately MK2! Also, why shouldn't they add MK2 outfits when mk9 is a remake of mk1,2 and 3? Hopefully they will add all their klassik outfits in the near future! And by the way, Kenshi is amazing. I wasn't expecting NRS to recreate an ordinary characters into an epic one! That is above my expectations! Now I'm anxious about rain and the secret character.

Dear Mortal Kombat, Screw you for making me pay 5 dollars for Skarlet. If this bad ass is worth $5 then dumb ass Skarlet should be valued, at most, 99 cents. Sincerely, The guy who just creamed himself

Ah yeah, sorry. Should of noticed that. Wonder how that one will end??
June 27th, 2011 3:29 PM CST - MileenaK
I like how on his fatality, when he's carrying the opponent and takes out the sword, the opponent gets all scared and tries to cover himself, then he throws the sword to the back haha. That's awesome

You should keep in mind that is concept art. They may just end up being MK1 costumes. Who knows, though.

I kinda doubt that. I don't know why they'd go through the trouble of rendering those models if they weren't going to use them. That'd be kind of a dick move to put this stuff together, show it to us, and then give us the same old MK1 costumes we've already been seeing for months. They may not look exactly like that when we get them, but they should be pretty damn close.

Even if I don't like the MK3 costumes at all, for the sake of completion an inclusion of them would be really the icing on the cake.
The Kunoichi costumes were really nice, the Ninja costumes were also nice, although I am a big fan of the first costumes. But nevertheless universes better than the MK3 Costumes.
I agree with you on that
June 27th, 2011 6:38 PM CST - Ermac210
Hell yea, Kenshi is amazing. I never liked it and i was worried about the move set didn't were similar to Ermac but now he has a different fight style and it's amazing. btw, as what I see, those ninjas looks like they were extracted from MK2. How about a Classic female ninjas? you know, with long and loose hair.

It's enough to make me want to take another trip down the rabbit hole...
June 28th, 2011 1:38 AM CST - Ricochetmatt
Oh Jeebus. I think I have a new favorite. Not only is he sexy, but his moves look BADASS. Definitely pro-Kenshi over here. Welcome to the group, my friend. I hope you enjoy rooming with Smoke, Ermac and Johnny Cage.

Let's see... 00:29 Has a low-hitting string. 00:30 He appears to have a Special move launcher, meaning that most of his strings should be comboable into it, like Nightwolf. 00:33 Long-range special that pummels the enemy. Doesn't look like you can follow it up with anything yet. May be a good zoning tool, depending on how long it reaches. 00:40 His Enhanced launcher may start out with an overhead. 00:44 He has a normal string that goes into a launcher. 00:54 Projectile reflector. 00:58 His forward throw puts a fair amount of distance between him and the opponent. May be decent for getting them into the corner? 01:10 Insanely long-range combos. 01:15 Projectile X-Ray, can punish from full screen. Can also combo with reflected projectile.

I gotta admit I was completely against kenshi since he was ermacs remake in 5 but now he seems to have his own original amazing looking moves...good show Ed Boon
June 29th, 2011 12:16 AM CST - THE JOHNNY ROOK
Wow, totally jaw droppingly impressed. Looked like a mix of Nightwolf, Noob, and Ermac with Kitana's X-Ray. Looks like a fun character, I never got the hype when he was first introduced in 04. To me he has totally redeemed himself years later. Big ups!
June 29th, 2011 12:58 PM CST - stlshocker
I was officially wrong comparing him to ermac.. kenshi looks ****ing phenominal! If they characters keep getting better like this we are all going to throw up once we see rain.. :D
July 2nd, 2011 6:14 PM CST - BeyondSpectrality
Yes there will be some Klassic Kostumes to go along with the DLC, just like Skarlet. We are getting Klassic Noob and Klassic Smoke. Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pZ1rjFAZCDA Oh, nevermind. I guess it was posted....lol... Kenshi and Klassics look awesome! Picking him up on Tuesday for sure ;o
July 4th, 2011 12:55 PM CST - El Madre
Im way too excited about this guy. He was my 2nd favorite behind subzero in deadly alliance. Im already dreaming of his enevitable 30% combos due to his comboable launcher with a telekinetic noob-esque projectil; add in a projectile reflector and its done son. Are you kidding me, how can you not be salivating over this high tier monster?
