In what was NetherRealm Studios’ worst kept secret perhaps, the company along with Warner Bros have finally announced the game officially, much to the delight of fans who didn’t play Mortal Kombat the first time around. However, there appears to be a major blow in store for those who are planning to pick up the game in Europe.
Firstly, let us get on to when the game will be available. In the midst of the huge CES event that is ongoing in the tech world right now, Warner Bros has announced that Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition will be available to buy on February 28 in the US and March 2nd over in the UK and rest of Europe.
As previously rumored prior to the announcement, the game will come packaged with every piece of DLC that released for MK, which includes the three DLC characters in Scarlet, Kenshi and Rain, while you’ll also get the classic costume packs and classic fatalities as well for Sub Zero, Reptile and Scorpion.
Now on to the controversial bit. It turns out that the US edition of this game will also come included with a Mortal Kombat: Songs Inspired by the Warriors soundtrack, as well as a download code for the infamous Mortal Kombat movie which released back in 1995. According to a report by Eurogamer, the Europe edition of MK:KE will not be getting these extra goodies – why?
If it turns out to be true and EU gamers will miss out on this, then there isn’t much of an incentive to pick this up you have to say. It could be down to licensing issues and such, but try telling that to fans who will be furious if they are not getting the same package as the US. There’s no word on the price for the Komplete Edition yet, but we’ll be sure to let you know once Warner Bros announces this.
What are your thoughts on the Komplete Edition, and the fact that EU buyers may not get the soundtrack and movie?
