God of War’s Kratos was confirmed as a playable character for the PlayStation 3 version of the new Mortal Kombat game this weekend on Spike’s VGA awards show. Following that announcement, we have an extended version of the Kratos debut trailer, which features some extra fighting footage.
Details for various special editions and pre-order bonuses have also been announced. The Kollector’s Edition will include Sub-Zero and Scorpion figurines, an art book, and downloadable content, which will include Mortal Kombat Klassic costume skins and avatars.
The Tournament Edition will also include Mortal Kombat Klassic costume skins and avatars. But it will also come packed with a portable fight stick. Only 20,000 copies of the Tournament Edition will be available in North America, making it a bit of a collector’s item.
