Mortal Kombat Kollector's Edition coming
|NEWS - VIDEOGAME NEWS|
Pony up, fans - it looks like it may be worth it...
As I mentioned before, we live in a world where it has become almost obligatory to release a ‘special edition’, ‘extended edition’ or ‘OMG LOOK edition’ alongside a videogame’s standard release. Whilst its standard siblings offer the game in a real ‘what you see is what you get’ form, the special edition allows publishers to go over the top and offer ludicrous extras that none of us need but ultimately want, thus ensuring maximum publicity and coffer-swelling profit margins. Now, while I don’t like being ripped off, I must admit I am a bit of a hypocrite and regularly opt for the in-your-face edition, an admission that makes them sound like my dirty little secret.
I suppose what I’m trying to say is that, beneath my cold, anti-commercialist front lays a warm, childlike state that sees these editions as a necessary and exciting purchase as opposed to a costly nuisance. With this in mind, and the fact that I am a massive Mortal Kombat fan-boy, you can imagine the excitement I was feeling with the news that the MK team are to release their very own ‘Kollectors Edition’.
The Mortal Kombat Kollector's Edition, despite following on from MK’s now infamous spelling mistakes, is sure to have any MK fan salivating and reaching for their wallets. The Kollector’s Edition boasts an art book, an awesome Scorpion/Sub-Zero figure and some "classic" costume DLC’s, something that’s sure to sit well with game’s longstanding fans.
However, if that’s not enough, the Warner Bros. team are also releasing a Tournament Edition which will come with a fight stick and the aforementioned DLC. What’s more only 20,000 of these will be released - so it really will be a special edition.
As if a new Mortal Kombat, new fatalities and a promised cameo from God of War’s Kratos were not enough, the Warner Bros. team have further sweetened the deal with these special editions and I for one cannot wait for their April 2011 release.
While it may mean spending a bit more money than I would have liked, the Scorpion/Sub-Zero figure more than makes it worthwhile and after all why not? We're only Mortal.
