    Mortal Kombat Game of the Year Edition Listed In France [UPDATED Listed in UK Too]

    The Examiner has discovered that Amazon France has a Mortal Kombat "Game of the Year" edition listed for pre-order right now. Could this be one of the Unexpected Surprises that Ed Boon has been teasing?



    There is not much information, other than a release date of February 28th, 2012 and a price of 39.99 Euros ($53.49 in U.S. dollars). Don't worry about the price conversion as in Europe new games typically release for 50-70 Euros so this is a price, and would possibly translate to a $39.99 price in the US. If this "Game of the Year" edition follows suit of other GOTY releases it's likely it will include all the previously released DLC on disc or with redemption codes inside of the box.

    I would expect an official announcement of this edition to happen sometime in early 2012 after the Holidays are over, so stay tuned.

    Updated 12/2: Appears that the UK ratings board BBFC has now listed a "Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition" in the UK as of today. What this likely means is what it will be called will either vary by region or a final name has not yet been decided. Stayed tuned as more details are likely to be revealed soon.

    If any game deserves the GOTY title, it's Mortal Kombat.

    I know it'll never happen, but I would love it if they actually finished the brutalities and endurance/survival modes along with including all the DLC in the GOTY edition

    It's on my list of GOTY games.

    (I try not to rank them really but instead a list of games I enjoyed in a given year)

    It's unlikely there will be anything NEW to this. A typical GOTY game re-release is not a money grab release (see Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 or Super Street Fighter IV) but actually just a repackaging of the game with all of it's available DLC. Ed has been fairly vocal on Twitter to not expect more DLC for MK9. A typical GOTY release is to sell it to customers who didn't buy it initially but may now that they heard it won a "GOTY" award and also to know it's a lower price now and with all the included DLC.

    Not all developers are not in the business of fleecing fans by forcing them to buy a whole new game for a few new characters. I personally expect the next console MK game with new stuff to be MK10.

    Do you think it's possible for them to bundle all the DLC characters onto the GOTY edition, Pat? I've seen a lot of games do this and IMO it makes sense

    That is our guess as I've stated above, a GOTY edition would include all the previously released DLC but nothing else new.

    As I said this is not for people who own the game already, but to entice those who didn't buy it to finally pick it up.

    Or, to buy it on a separate console, which is why I'm planning on buying it.

    MKVSDC was re-released as greatest hits, I wouldn't be surprised to see a GOTY edition of MK9.

    The Amazon posting shows that it's for the PS3. So it won't be MKV.

    UMK9/MK9GOTY is a great idea, except Australia still hasn't finished bringing in the new R18 rating.

    I beg to differ, but here is not the time or place to debate over such a trivial matter.
    I mean, we are on a Mortal Kombat forum.. so I think it's GOTY material.
    Anyways, this is good news indeed.
    It's not going to include anything other than the DLC, though.
    GOTY's are just the game repackaged with it's DLC.
    I wonder if the compatibility packs are going to be included??
    I'm sure this is one of the surprises, but maybe not.
    Boon said the first surprise wouldn't be related to MK9.
    So, I still have hope for a new action/adventure game

    A sophisticated one.

    Re: Mortal Kombat Game of the Year Edition Listed In France

    Porting studios like to port GOTY editions of games. Especially since they can port the game with all the DLC in one go and being GOTY is like an assurance it'll sell well it seems.

    Being GOTY makes the game ripe for porting. So I could see a company like Aspyr swooping in and porting MK to the platforms they port games to that is PC\Mac. Steam has a feature that allows you to purchase the game once and download to either platform.

    Aspyr is known for porting console only franchises over to PC\Mac such as Star Wars The Force Unleashed and Guitar Hero (and made that compatible with those plastic guitars). This may just be wishful thinking but they could be announcing this by the end of the year for release early next year.
