The third and last known DLC character for Mortal Kombat (2011) has been released as a render to the community. Rain debuted first in Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 as a purple ninja tease in the arcade game's attract mode. The character was never playable until the console versions. While this is the last known DLC character, there is at least one character left that NetherRealm Studios has not announced the name of yet.



As has been the case with the previous two characters, Skarlet and Kenshi, there will also be a free compatibility pack released in conjunction with the Rain DLC character. The free compatibility packs have featured free retro skins and Rain's release appears to follow in this manner. NRS Community Manager, Rigo Cortes has been teasing on about who's skins are being included in the pack, mentioning "blueberry and lime". Anyone care to guess who he could be referring to?

Looks good. Can't wait to FINALLY get Rain in Mk 9. As for DLC: Blueberry = ? Lime= Hopefully MK 3 Sonya

I really like Rains design in this game. Excited to see how he plays. As for the two classic costumes. Blueberry and Lime? Maybe it's Jax (purple pants, blueberry) and as mentioned above, Sonya (green pants and top, lime) EDIT: I'll just drop this here.

Would rather johnny cage mk1 rather than a Jax classic. But oh well, if it is free I'll get it

Agreed!!! but I can't possibly think of how Johnny Cage could be a lime or blueberry.... Anyways, Rain looks great! They better reveal the fourth dlc character in his trailer too, and it better be Tanya! lol

Maskless sub zero from MK3?!

Wow... Rain looks really amazing. I love the how they mixed up black with the purple. Makes him look mean. Love it.
July 8th, 2011 5:50 PM CST - Draxxon
Blueberry = Kitana, Lime = Jade. MKII costumes is my guess.
July 8th, 2011 5:51 PM CST - Goddess
rain is hot. i'd let him hit me

It is definitely sonya and jax (probably mk3 skins). The two characters are always connected. Current skin packs prove that!

I highly doubt they would just do them two and not mileena. Mist likely lime is sonya. I think depending on the classic will determine the other person. Mk3 it will be Jax and sonya, mk1 it will cage and sonya. Most likely it will be mk3, since I think that is the more popular sonya outfit.

Lol this render has been on the xbox 360's dashboard ever since skarlet's release. I remember saying that Rain looks like a pallette swap scorpion.
July 8th, 2011 8:45 PM CST - kingbigums
everyone is probaly right on sonya from mk3 but i think blueberry cant be jax i mean he techincally has the purple pants when you press start on his primary i think it is unmasked sub or mk3 nightwolf
July 8th, 2011 8:52 PM CST - Deathbathunter
I LIKE PIE!!!! And Rain..
July 8th, 2011 8:58 PM CST - Jinko
Blueberry could refer to Raiden, but it wouldn't make sense if NRS is releasing him with Sonya (assuming Lime refers to her).
July 8th, 2011 9:22 PM CST - Sander Cohen
More Ninja outfits? I love the ninjas but... Just give me MK1 Johnny Cage and Raiden already. But everyone want to know my guess? It will be UMK3 Sub-Zero [Masked] and Reptile. I called it... Remember. And Rain looks simply amazing, never been a fan but he looks really good with this new design. Just hope his gameplay style is improved too. Can't wait to see the trailer. I'm even more curious to see it in action than I was with Kenshi. lol

I agree, only care for unmasked Sub for Cyber Sub and the most of the non ninja characters now so i can use them more but i think it will be MK3 ninjas at the end or Stryker and Sonya.

blueberry and lime... Cyber Sub-Zero has been one of the least popular characters since Taven and Daegon. If NRS releases MK3 Sub for Cyber Sub, all that would change i can assure you. I will ****ing MASTER Cyber Sub, if i get that costume as for lime...non other than MK3 or MK1 Sonya Blade...this is one of the most requested costumes since the game released. One of my personal faves as well. Sonya has went through a Military-Influenced costume crisis since MK4...Lets bring back that sexy aerobic gear! If blueberry isn't MK3 Sub...i pray that it's "BloodSport" MK1 Johnny Cage
July 9th, 2011 2:19 AM CST - Nasty_Freak
Blueberry= Maybe Jax in his purple tights. Lime= Sonya in her MK3 outfit!!! *Crossing my fingers for MK3 Sonya.* I'd also want MK3 Kung Lao, MK2 Liu Kang, MK1 Kano, and MK1 Raiden.

Blueberry = Stryker and Lime = Sonya? Those two could be connected

Im know its ridiculous bc theyve already gotten alternates, but do to there popularity and my love for the characters I'm thinking its subzero and reptile/jade. Sub is damn near a guarantee.
July 9th, 2011 9:52 AM CST - timmo2000
anyone that already has a classic will not get another one so u can rule out anyone that has a kalssic already the lime one is more likely and the blueberry is more likely goona be
July 9th, 2011 10:04 AM CST - Sander Cohen
^They will not release a pair of outfits from different games. That's for sure. So I really doubt you're right on that one... Stryker on Cage's place would be possible.

Google "George Carlin Blue Food." He'll tell you, blueberries are purple... -Bill

The giant leaked text file for mk9, (the one with all the intros & endings etc.) had the females ninjas listed with MKII and MK3 alt. costumes. So I'm going solely off of that.
July 9th, 2011 12:36 PM CST - blahbos
I think the Lime is Sonya from MK3 and also Blueberry could be Cyber smoke ??? http://www.darktemplarz.com/umk3/smokevs.gif
July 9th, 2011 12:55 PM CST - latch360
Yep, Rain really looks cool as hell. I loves me the new render.

I agree. The two Americans makes sense. You know Johnny has a crush on Sonya too.
July 9th, 2011 12:58 PM CST - latch360
No couldn't be cybersmoke, he would have a different move list then. It just wouldn't make much sense. We have enough ninja and cybers as it is.

Well it's better than Johnny Cage wearing a different pair of pants. Seriously, why would anyone want the same ****ing Johnny Cage only with blue and black pants? What they need to do is release one of those amazing alternate designs you can find in the art book.
July 9th, 2011 2:26 PM CST - theheadbop
Blueberry & Lime. Personally I think it's Stryker and Nightwolf (his spirit powers are lime) if not it could be Jax & Sonya but Jax is more grape than blueberry (lol) Definitely not Sub-Zero & Reptile or Kitana and Jade or wararararar because they already have retro outfits

I liked the MK3 Sonya. I'm not even going to assume what blueberry means because chances are...We are all wrong. So I won't even try. lol

Why do so many discount the obvious? They are doing the MK2 klassics. So it's either mk2 sub and reptile OR mk2 kitana and jade. While I would love to see ALL the classic skins for everyone, I think it would be nice to have consistency with the mk2 ninjas first before moving on to the mk3 skins.

Sektor and Cyrax are not MK2 classics, sir.

Wow, Rain looks amazing. I can not wait to see how he plays
July 9th, 2011 3:59 PM CST - Ricochetmatt
They need to stop with the Classic Skins and just release alternate costumes that never made it into the game's release. I can understand the classic costumes for the ninja-like characters.... But most of the others are pretty close to their original look. Or close enough. Johnny doesn't need one, Stryker doesn't need one, Raiden doesn't need one, Sindel doesn't need one, Kano just needs to gtfo, Baraka doesn't need one, Kung Lao and Kang don't need one, Jax doesn't need one... blah blah blah.

@Matt: they're mostly adding them to get people to DL the compatibility packs. It's kinda sad that you gotta bribe people to get them to DL shit that makes the game better, but whatever. That said, I'd like to see classic skins for Sonya, Jax and Kano.
July 9th, 2011 7:47 PM CST - Darth_Fatso
I really like Rain's design in this game. Has a bit of an Arabian look to it. As for who will be get a classic skins in the compatibility pack I hope it's Sonya in her MK3 outfit and Kitana in her MK2 outfit.

It wont be Kitana,she already has a classic It probably will be MK3 Sonya MK3 Jax
July 10th, 2011 9:19 AM CST - Ilya-v
JAX and SONYA and thats FINAL !!!
July 10th, 2011 12:37 PM CST - BOOMSTICK
I'd like Sonya and Jax. Had enough ninja costumes already. It'd be interesting if they did that pair since it they would have to make two new damage models. The other costume packs all had the same damage model on the 'like' sets.

Be nice if the costumes were new and not retro. Tired of classics. A human Reptile for lime would be perfect.
July 10th, 2011 9:26 PM CST - ec197
Were talkin bout rain guys..... com on haha xD i wonder how his gameplay style is gonna b like jaja
July 10th, 2011 10:02 PM CST - Raddus
Actually, they've been going with male ninja suits. I wouldn't be surprised if it's UMK3 ninja suits for CSZ and Reptile.

You ALREADY got HUMAN Reptile: Why does everyone assume that the Klassic costumes, that come with the with the compatibility packs, are for people that ALREADY have Klassic Costumes??? Why the hell would they waste their time on that, when they could do 2 NEW Klassic costumes for 2 OTHER characters, like Sonya and Jax.
July 10th, 2011 11:45 PM CST - Raddus
Because they have an appreciated history of doing what their fans want?

Maskless sub-zero and classic sonya all thr way
