It’s been 25 years since Paul WS Anderson’s Mortal Kombat movie came out and immediately entered the annals of cult-film history. The movie was a triumph and a tragedy in equal measure, performing well at the box office despite — or perhaps because of — its campy dialogue, unfortunate acting moments and truly ridiculous storyline. And now, it’s back in the latest Mortal Kombat game.
The Klassic MK Movie Skin Pack is available today as an add-on for Mortal Kombat 11. It costs $6 across all available platforms and includes the likenesses of three main actors from the film: Christopher Lambert as “Protector of Earthrealm Raiden,” Linden Ashby as “Hollywood Kombatant Johnny Cage” and Bridgette Wilson-Sampras as “Island Bound Sonya Blade.” They all provided new voice lines, too.

Serious series fans have been expecting some kind of movie-related DLC for Mortal Kombat 11, after dataminers discovered voice samples from Lambert, Ashby and Wilson-Sampras buried in the game’s code in September.
Mortal Kombat 11 is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, Stadia and PC, and it recently hit PS5 and Xbox Series X and S in the Ultimate edition, which includes the main game plus Kombat Pack 1, 2 and the Aftermath Expansion.
