As confirmed over the weekend, Kratos will be raising his head in the PS3 version of next year’s Mortal Kombat reboot; watch his grand entrance into the arena above.
What hasn’t been said until the official word from WBIE today is that the Spartan will have “his own customised move set, fatality, and fighting arena.” The goods will be available to “all original purchasers,” which sounds an awful lot like a code-included-in-new-copies approach.
Expect a few special editions as well; The Kollector’s Edition comes with the game, Sub-Zero and Scorpion figurines, an art book, and exclusive Mortal Kombat Klassic costume skin and avatar costumes DLC. The Tournament Edition on the other hand includes a portable fight stick, the aforementioned DLC, and is limited to a mere 20,000 copies in North America.
In addition, there’s retailer exclusive goods on offer:
Gamestop: Customers who pre-order their copy of Mortal Kombat at Gamestop will get exclusive access to the Klassic Scorpion Playable Character Skin and the original Scorpion Fatality.
Best Buy: Customers who pre-order their copy of Mortal Kombat at Best Buy will get exclusive access to the Klassic Sub-Zero Playable Character Skin and the original Sub-Zero Fatality.
Amazon: Customers who pre-order their copy of Mortal Kombat on Amazon.com will get exclusive access to the Klassic Reptile Playable Character Skin and the original Reptile Fatality.
The game’s shipping in April, 2011. It’ll be available in stereoscopic 3D as well, though again, only on the PS3.
