Biography: For years the swordsman Kenshi traveled the world in search of worthy opponents. When a mysterious elderly man named Song offered to show him the location of Sento, an ancient sword worthy of his abilities, Kenshisuccumbed to pride. He followed Song to a tomb wherein lay the Well of Souls. When Kenshi retrieved the sword, spirits of ancient warriors spewed forth, blinding him. Song then revealed himself to be Shang Tsung. He consumed thesouls, leaving Kenshi in the dark labyrinth to die. But Sento called to Kenshi. It led him out of the tomb and revealed his lost heritage as a descendant of the warriors who had been buried there. Kenshi vowed to slay Shang Tsung and free the souls of his ancestors.

Despite the announcement that Skarlet would be released in Europe on June 22nd, a technical issue prevented this to happen on the PlayStation Network. To make fans even more mad and dissapointed, WB Games UK listed the Klassic Skins DLC Pack with a price that was twice as much as the announced. To address these problems and to calm down the fans, WB Games UK tweeted the following announcements:
Due to technical issues, Skarlet DLC will not be available to PSN users in Europe until next week. We apologise for any inconvenience.
The posted price of the MK Classic Skins pack on PSN is incorrect and being rectified to £3.19 for UK users and €3.99 for European users.
The Mortal Kombat Klassic Skins pack is now priced correctly at £3.19/€3.99 and equivalent on the SCEE PlayStation Store.
Consumers who purchased pack at the incorrect price will automatically have the difference refunded to their PlayStation Store wallet ASAP
