On 19 July you’ll be able to pick up a third DLC character for this year’s hyper-bloody Mortal Kombat reboot. To date, we’ve had Skarlet and Kenshi joins the ranks, but now it’s a purple ninja’s turn.

Rain first made an appearance in Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 as one of the many cut-and-paste ninjas. He looked like Sub-Zero, Scorpion and Reptile, only purple. He also has the ability to control rain water and lightning, which now makes me realise that I missed a very obvious Prince reference that could have been worked into the headline. Damn it!

Rain will hit for 400 MS Points on Xbox Live or R35 on the PlayStation Store. If you’re an online player and don’t intend to pick him up then don’t forget to download the compatibility patch so that you can still fight others players who have bought the DLC. In the meantime check out his reveal trailer bellow; some imaginative Fatalities going on there.
