Mortal Kombat 1 Welcomes Jean-Claude Van Damme: An Exclusive Premium Edition Offering.” NetherRealm and Warner Bros. have unwrapped the details surrounding Mortal Kombat 1, sharing insights into the roster, storyline and more. This includes the star-studded inclusion of Jean-Claude Van Damme for the buyers willing to invest in the £109.99 Premium Edition.
Unveiling Mortal Kombat 1 through an engaging reveal trailer. The game confirmed the title and revealed loads of details on their official website. One of the biggest reveals was the introduction of eight familiar faces (with the ninth being Johnny Cage), and set Liu Kang’s transformation into the Fire God as the conclusive ending for Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath. As the excitement builds, more details about Mortal Kombat 1’s Premium and Kollector’s Editions continue to emerge.
The Exclusive Offers: Standard, Premium, and Kollector’s Editions
From May 19th, pre-orders for Mortal Kombat 1 will be live, offering three distinct options for the franchise’s loyal followers. The Standard Edition comes with a price tag of £69.99, while the Premium Edition costs £109.99. The Premium Edition offers early access (allowing gameplay from September 14th, five days ahead of the official release), 1,250 Dragon Krystals (the game’s in-game currency), and the Kombat Pack.
Additionally this pack features a unique Johnny Cage skin transforming him into a Jean-Claude Van Damme lookalike, early access to six DLC characters, and five novel Kameo Fighters. Moreover, for an extravagant £249.99, the Kollector’s Edition offers all of the Premium perks along with a 16.5-inch Liu Kang sculpture by COARSE, an exclusive Liu Kang in-game character skin, three artwork prints, a steel case, and an additional 1,450 Dragon Krystals, totalling 2,700.
A Tribute to the Original: Van Damme’s Inclusion in Mortal Kombat 1
Although Johnny Cage was noticeably absent from the Mortal Kombat 1 reveal trailer, fans can rest assured he will be part of the initial roster upon the game’s September launch. Enthusiasts keen on the Jean-Claude Van Damme skin will need to splash out on the £109.99 Premium Edition. Yet, with early access and additional DLC characters as part of the package, many Mortal Kombat aficionados might see this as a valuable investment.
Finally, Jean-Claude Van Damme’s appearance holds a particular significance, bringing the Mortal Kombat journey full circle. Initially, Van Damme was meant to star in the original Mortal Kombat, a plan that unfortunately did not come to fruition. However this in-turn ended up leading to Johnny Cage’s creation as a substitute. Now, as the new game adorns the title Mortal Kombat 1, the Jean-Claude Van Damme skin for Johnny Cage carries a poignant and fitting symbolism.
Mortal Kombat 1 is set for a September 19th launch across PlayStation 5, Switch, Windows PC and Xbox Series X.
