Mortal Kombat X getting a Komplete Edition

Mortal Kombat XL

Mortal Kombat X! It was a pretty good fighting game, given its piles of viscera and faster, more fluid gameplay (at least, compared to most other Mk games). It may be a little shallower than top-tier games, but it’s one heck of a fun fighter, and is balanced enough for high level competitive play.

If there’s one real complaint I can levy against the game though, it’s in how the DLC was handled, with its extra characters being locked behind a pay wall. It’s the sort of practice that has people waiting for a Game of Year of complete version of the game instead of jumping in on day one. If you’re that sort of person, well then, good news: Mortal Kombat X is getting a Komplete Edition.

Called Mortal Kombat XL, the re-release will feature every single character and every single skin released to date. It’ll be available digitally, as well as in stores on March 1 this year – which just happens to be my birthday. I will, however, probably still be very busy playing Street Fighter V.

NetherRealm confirmed the release on Twitter, which includes a trailer video.

“It’s been over two decades since Mortal Kombat made a debut in arcades. Twenty two years of horrific dismemberment, gore and blood pumping out of arcades and home consoles in a franchise that began to lose momentum along the way,” we said in our review. “2011 however, gave birth to one of the finest Mortal Kombat games ever made, a reboot that set a new path for the series and its Earthrealm kombatants. Mortal Kombat X marks the evolution of that style, as the return of the king makes way for a new era in gratuitous violence and competition.”

    March 1? So you missed the chance to be a leap year baby by, perhaps, only 1 day? Damn

    This version may be worth getting in a years time, then. I do want to play MK X, just not at that price AND I need to make sure that my slowly burgeoning family does not get to see some of the visuals, even the front screen

    I’m confused. If it’s the complete edition of MK 10, why’s it called MK 40?
