As was revealed in a recent interview, Skarlet's inclusion is something of a fan service -- a reference to an old glitch in the original arcade version of Mortal Kombat that caused the Jade/Katana/Milena character to pallete shift to a red costume.
With the latest Mortal Kombat offering no longer resorting to cheap palette shifting, Skarlet has now become a wholly-realised, unique character -- a scantily-clad femme-fatale who appears to like blood... a lot of blood.
Australians looking to get a hold of this upcoming DLC will likely have to resort to registering (and funding) international Xbox Live or PlayStation Network accounts to gain access, but if you're one of the many people that have gone to the effort of importing the game in the first place (as described in this article by our friends over at GamePron) that's probably not going to present much of a challenge.
