Mortal Kombat Gets Limited Editions and More
Warner Bros. Interactive and developer NetherRealm Studios detailed the upcoming limited edition versions of their Mortal Kombat reboot this morning. The companies also unveiled a host of retailer-specific preorder incentives for the fighting game.
Beginning next April, Mortal Kombat will be available in three distinct flavors: the standard, no-frills release; a lovingly misspelled "Kollector’s Edition," set to include Sub Zero and Scorpion figurines, exclusive downloadable costumes, and an art book; and, finally, the super-limited Tournament Edition, which will feature even more exclusive DLC, plus something Warner Bros. calls a "portable fight stick."
As if that decision alone wasn’t heartwrenching enough, Warner also revealed unique preorder bonuses for Amazon, Best Buy, and Gamestop. Reserving a copy from Amazon will net you a "Klassic" Reptile costume, as well as exclusive access to the green ninja’s original Fatality. Similarly, Gamestop and Best Buy are offering "Klassic" versions of Scorpion and Sub Zero, respectively, bundled alongside the two characters’ original finishing moves.
Assuming these preorder exclusives never become regular DLC, Mortal Kombat fans will have some tough choices to make next spring. What’s your take?
