Mortal Kombat koming April 2011, special editions announced


Mortal Kombat's 2011 reboot will tell consumers to "get over here" in April 2011. That's the latest release window kurrently offered by Warner Bros. Interactive, with Warner Home Video's publicity site listing a more specific April 19, 2011.

To complement its reveal of Kratos as a playable character in the PS3 version of the game, WB has announced standard, Kollector's and Tournament editions (along with several retailer-specific pre-order incentives, listed after the break).

The Kollector's Edition will include
Sub-Zero and Scorpion figurines, a collectible art book, and DLC for "Mortal Kombat Klassic costume skins" and avatar costumes. The Tournament Edition, which will have a limited run of 20,000 copies in North America, will contain the game, DLC and ... a "portable fight stick." 'Cause, you see, if it were a fight log it wouldn't be "portable" -- it's a very necessary adjective.

Retailer-specific pre-order bonuses:

GameStop: Klassic Scorpion Playable Character Skin and the original Scorpion Fatality.

Best Buy: Klassic Sub-Zero Playable Character Skin and the original Sub-Zero Fatality.

Amazon: Klassic Reptile Playable Character Skin and the original Reptile Fatality.
