Fighting game fans who’ve been eagerly awaiting the upcoming Mortal Kombat game should get all riled up. The developers have taken out all of that frilly 3D game play for a classic, 2D fighting experience. You won’t get your hands on it until April, but you can decide which of these awesome special editions you want right now.
First we have the Kollector’s Edition which includes Figurines of Scorpion and Sub-Zero, an art book and two DLC costumes: one for your avatar and the other for the character Reptile. The Tournament Edition features two main differences from the Kollector’s Edition. Instead of the figurines, you get a ‘portable’ arcade stick and there is no art book. Before that last bit confuses you, the arcade stick doubles as a chest in which you can carry your copy of the game, additional controllers and or whatever else you want, thus the ‘portable’. I wonder if the chest functionality has any affect on the sturdiness or quality of the arcade stick.
If you’re really rich, you can buy both editions and then put the figurines and art book inside the arcade stick! (Sighs) Anyways, most of us won’t be coming anywhere near a Tournament Edition because the American release is super limited to 20,000 copies, which I’ll bet is about one press run. Details aren’t clear on pricing, but we know how much the standard version will cost. Hit the break for the shot of the Tournament Edition. The game will be available on the PS3 and the Xbox 360, with the PS3 version featuring Kratos as a playable character. I’ll see you guys in April, pounding on the cheap Hori stick that accompanied the Tekken 6 Limited Edition.
