Mortal Kombat Tournament Edition Comes In A Nifty Arcade Stick Case

By Ishaan . December 16, 2010 . 3:31pm

Midways’s Mortal Kombat reboot, due for release in Aprill 2011, comes in three packages: Standard, Kollector’s, and Tournament. Pre-ordering any of these versions at different will net you a different classic playable character skin and their original Fatality.


A Gamestop pre-order will give you a classic Scorpion, Best Buy are siding with Sub-Zero, and Amazon’s pre-order covers Reptile (who looks like he needs it the most). Pre-orders are up now, in case you’re wondering.


Don’t worry though; you won’t need to buy all three versions to get all three skins. Earlier today, the official Mortal Kombat Twitter stated: “We don’t expect you to buy 3 copies of Mortal Kombat to get classic skins. #BePatient”


Now on to the different packages themselves. The Kollector’s Edition comes with the game, Sub-Zero and Scorpion figurines, an art book, downloadable content that includes a fourth classic skin and avatar costumes.


Meanwhile, the Tournament Edition, which looks to be the coolest for collectors, comes with the game and a portable Mortal Kombat fight stick-cum-case suited specifically to MK. In addition, the Tournament Edition also includes the fourth classic skin and avatar costumes.


The MK Twitter also mentioned a few other points of interest. First, yes, Europeans will also be getting something, and are asked to wait for information in “the coming weeks.” Second, you might be able to buy the Mortal Kombat fight stick separately, but don’t take that as a confirmation just yet.

  • Man they sure love making characters in games store specific, i’m sure the other ones will come out as DLC eventually.

    • OneOkami

      I think in general these probably more a retailer initiative in efforts to get people to buy the game from them. I doubt the developers are doing this for fun.

  • Apache_Chief

    I think I speak for everyone who doesn’t play Mortal Kombat when I say: WTF is up with that button layout?

  • Code

    Silly Mortal Kombat, you don’t have tournaments, but you can have your fight stick if you really gotta have one >ww<'

    • BadenBadenPrinny

      Actually UMK3 is still played to this day…. (not exactly an MK player but, it was there at season’s beatings this year)

      • Code

        Neat! The more you know I guess >w<~! I still don't like MK, but interesting to see some version of it's still played.

  • Woohoo! A fight stick with a layout that’s only good for one game! That sounds practical!

  • That’s the weirdest button layout I’ve ever seen. Terrible stick.

    • Feynman

      That’s the classic Mortal Kombat button layout that was used for the original trilogy. I think it’s pretty neat that they made a real MK stick instead of going with a standard 6/8 button stick. Yes, it makes the stick very game-specific, but considering the fact that it’s a hybrid stick/game case limited edition targeted specifically at the most fanatical MK fans, I don’t think that’s a problem.

  • That Tournament Edition is amazing. I really like the presentation.

  • superdry

    The tournament edition is pretty cool. I like they’re keeping it traditional with the HAPP parts. I can see today’s fighting game fans go WTF to the parts.

    But, the case – so much modding potential.

  • RagnaXBL

    that stick looks just horrible. meh wouldn’t expect much from MK anyways…

  • Chow

    Every single time a new MK comes out, I’m always super-hyped about it (blame my childhood, I guess). And I almost always turn out hating it or realizing that it’s a joke in terms of character development, story, gameplay, pretty much almost everything. Add that to the fact that I’ll usually find the game at a severely discounted price shortly after (ie Greatest Hits or equivalent status).

    …yet here I am again being hyped about this game. ><

    • RupanIII

      Haha that happens with me too. I guess when I see the latest MK reboot or sequel it reminds me of the excitement with MK 1 and 2, everyone trying to figure out fatalities and such
