It’s been a long while since the blind warrior has been in the MK scene. It’s been 5 years to be exact since he was seen in Armageddon, and 9 years since his first appearance in Deadly Alliance. Kenshi was been a fan favorite thanks to his fast and swift fighting style with long sweeping sword slashes. His telekinesis was very popular with fans, and now it looks and plays better in MK9.
Kenshi’s outfit hasn’t changed much, but there is a graphical upgrade to his special moves that allow a translucent version of him that he projects when doing his telekinesis moves. It’s cool to see especially if you remember what he was like 9 years ago. His sword slashes are still fast and sweeping and he has some pretty heavy-hitting combos. They aren’t huge ones, but he has a few 3-4 hit combos that involve his special moves and some sword slashes.
Kenshi is a good juggling character with his upward sword slash you can combo into that with most of his moves. His special moves are really useful with some full-screen moves, up close, and medium distance. He’s a well-balanced character for all play styles and I really think even newcomers will grow to like The Blind Warrior Kenshi. His fatalities are actually some of my favorites, but without spoiling anything I’ll just say they are very brutal and one is pretty funny in a way. At the usual DLC character price, he’s well worth it and you should get a lot of playtime out of him.
