If you haven’t picked up the excellent Mortal Kombat game that released earlier on this year, we have some potentially very exciting news for you. A recent classification listing online has revealed that NetherRealm Studios are intending to release a ‘Komplete Edition’ next year.
As most fighting game fans will agree, the 2011 Mortal Kombat reboot released in April of this year was an excellent addition to the franchise, with NetherRealm Studios going on to enjoy stellar reviews as well as great sales numbers following on from release.
Mortal Kombat 10 looks likely to follow-up at some point, but now it seems that focus will be shifted on re-releasing the game first of all, in a package which will see the game bundled with every piece of downloadable content at a discount price – we hope. A listing by the BBFC has highlighted Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition for a release on February 17th 2012, so expect official details to probably release next month, as reported from Eurogamer.
As for the content you can expect to come with the new version, the four downloadable characters – Scarlet, Kenshi, Rain and Freddy Krueger are good bets. We’re also guessing that the classic ninja suits and MK2 costumes will come included on the disc as well, but lets hope that NetherRealm Studios have some new content planned as well which would give fans an extra incentive to pick the game up.
There was a lot of talk about other movie-based DLC characters coming to Mortal Kombat after Freddy Krueger, so let’s hope NRS have been taking everyone’s ideas to the table and are planning something big next February.
So the ‘ultimate’ trend kicked off by Capcom continues it seems. Let us know if you are planning to pick up the new version of Mortal Kombat, or if you’ll give this a miss. New content has to be a must here to warrant a purchase, otherwise day-one buyers may be entitled to feel a little hard done by. We’ll let you know once we hear of any official word from NRS.
