Mortal Kombat X is coming IN April. It’s one of my most anticipated titles in 2015 – mostly because I’m aching for a good fighting game, but also because it seems to be taking the new mould set by the Mortal Kombat 9 reboot, and making it better. Faster, tighter and more fluid, Mortal Kombat X could be the best game in the series. And like most great big, anticipated AAA games these days, it’s getting a range of different special editions. Here are the four, confusing special editions coming.

The Mortal Kombat X: Kollector’s Edition by Coarse

  • Exclusive Scorpion figurine and Certificate of Authenticity, designed by Coarse. Coarse has been recognized in Collector and Designer figure communities for their artistic approach, dedication to detail, and unique storytelling through sculpture.
  • In-game Gold Scorpion Skin, inspired by the Coarse figurine
  • The Kombat Pack, which includes access to four add-on playable characters from Klassic Kombatants to Iconic guest characters
  • Available for PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft
  • MSRP: $149.99
  • It’s exclusive to the US, so YOU CAN’T HAVE IT.

  • Exclusive Scorpion Skin — this skin design, inspired by the Cold War, is a collaboration between NetherRealm Studios and a fan artist from the MKKollective.com, a crowd-sourced destination where Mortal Kombat enthusiasts can upload, submit and share their MK-related art, images, cosplay, music and videos.

You can take a look at how that Scorpion figurine was created in this video. We’ve also contacted the local distributors to see which – if any – of these superfluous and expensive collector’s editions will make their way to our stores. [Update]

We’ll be getting the Kollectors Edition, Premium Edition and Limited Edition – so it’s just the Coarse one we’ll miss out on. I think it’s ugly, personally – and prefer the more traditional Scorpion in the regular Kollector’s Edition.

Pre-ordering the game nets you Goro as a playable character, which is an egregious way of securing pre release sales – because who doesn’t wanna clobber dudes with a four-armed titan?

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
