A few minutes ago, both Ed Boon and Rigo Cortes of NetherRealm Studios announced via Twitter a new DLC to be available for Mortal Kombat (2011). The tweet can be seen below:


"The 7 Klassic outfits & 3 Klassic fatalities that were retailer exclusives will be bundled into one DLC package. Trailer coming on Friday" - @noobde and @NinjaBoy66


This means that the DLC package will contain all the "Klassic Kostumes" for Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Reptile, Ermac, Kitana, Mileena and Jade that were previously only available as pre-order bonsues at various retailers worldwide. In addition to those costumes, the three "Klassic Fatalities" for Scorpion, Sub-Zero and Reptile will also be unlocked with this DLC package.

They said on Friday the remaining details like price and release date will go live with the release of an announcement trailer. We're guessing they will be released in the next two weeks as teased by the Official Mortal Kombat Twitter account yesterday.

Will we get extra costumes at a later time like the leaked Cyrax and Sektor Mortal Kombat 3 costumes? It seems that will in fact be happening as Rigo Cortes also confirmed on Twitter in response to a question by Mortal Kombat combo master Check_4900:


@Check_4900: @NinjaBoy66 Will there be some new costumes for characters after this?

@NinjaBoy66: @Check_4900 Yes


So it's great news so far, and we can't wait to see the remaining details on Friday!

So my preorder bonus meant absolutely squat. Couldn't even redeem it if I wanted to lol But alas, hurray!

This is good, now if we can get the online issues fixed I will be a happy camper.

I wonder how many reading comprehension fails will happen from people expecting DLC to be released Friday instead of a trailer.
May 25th, 2011 2:07 PM CST - Big Frog
I'm guessing quite a few, sek. But can't wait for the DLC. Awesome.

I like how this is like the sixth thread to pop up talking about this. HUm...if a mod is the person who starts a thread for a topic that they're ready threads...who butts end and randomly locks it and tell you to go to the other thread. Or is it, that this is NOW the official thread and all other will end up...mysteriously missing (locked) lol

Why not Classic Noob and Smoke instead of 2 of the chicks?

i feel bad for the stoopid kids who xcouldnt wait for kostume dlc and spent hundreds of dollars collecting the kostumes 1 by 1 which is just fantastic

How the hell did I forget about the MK3 Sektor and Cyrax costumes? I must be slipping lol

Thank the Elders! There were some that scammed players by trading bad codes for good ones. At least now everyone can have access to the DLC.

Hopefully this is what was announced as free from boon awhile ago. I know someone asked him what the price would be on twitter and he replied i don't know yet. But that can still mean it might be free. cause it should be free considering all of them were on the disc.
May 25th, 2011 4:43 PM CST - Camoufrage
I'm happy. Some of the characters with Classic costumes (Reptile, Sub-Zero) have really bad normal costumes. That is where their Classic alts come to save the day.
May 25th, 2011 5:07 PM CST - Bigwayne1313
This needs to be a very cheap, if not free. I already have Scorpion, Ermac, and Jade. (Never even got to redeem Jade because of the PSN fiasco.)
May 25th, 2011 5:57 PM CST - RonnyRAGE
$2 or less or I won't buy pallet swaps suck I only care about the Fatalities. All they are doing is releasing content that is on the disc. WTF NR?

Because Kitana and Jade are way better than Noob and Smoke. IMO

I know it's a long shot..... But I really hope that some day they give Mileena her MKII outfit and her original sai stab fatality!
May 25th, 2011 10:18 PM CST - TekuninCyber
Didn't Boon or someone say that anything that was already on the disc was gonna be free? I hope that if it isn't free it'll be super cheap.
May 25th, 2011 11:25 PM CST - Adjun
This is fun news. I was really hoping for an all-inclusive classic DLC package. I want all of the original fatalities as well as costumes. Playing dress up is fun, but the fatalities to go with them for each character would be a definite sell. For now I'll pass.

If it is free, that would be an awesome 'Fan Appreciation Gesture'. However, Boon is first and foremost and cash collector. I'm guessing we'll see this pack released in the $9.99 ~ $14.99 range. In other words I have a feeling DLC for MK2011 is going to be quite pricey.

I completely agree! I'm really hoping they will be releasing a major patch for online play along with the DLC package.
May 26th, 2011 12:49 AM CST - Nasty_Freak
Yes. This better be cheap or free. All I really need out of those exclusive classics so far are Kitana's and Reptile's retro outfits. The rest are some good extras. Plus, I already have Scorpion's classic fatality and costume from day 1.
May 26th, 2011 2:20 AM CST - MajorWeirdo
this is some good news. So in 2 weeks time huh... they better have PSN store back up by then...
May 26th, 2011 2:26 AM CST - [sek]
Ed Boon (and others related to the MK team) have been practically begging people not to pay for DLC codes on eBay or whatever, he's pretty much said that the classic outfits are going to be free DLC and the only thing people are going to be asked to pay for are extra characters.
May 26th, 2011 2:30 AM CST - MajorWeirdo
Free DLC is fine by me... we would still need the store to DL it though...

This means that Xbox 360 KE don't countain any exclusive Digital stuff.
May 26th, 2011 4:31 AM CST - Weiland
On the one hand, it's awesome that this is being released. On the other hand, I've got a feeling that this "DLC" isn't going to be free. PROTIP: If the content is on disc, 1) it isn't "dlc" 2) you've already bought it. In no way should any of you have to pay for this. If there is a price tag attached to this on disc content that you've already bought, you should raise hell at NRS and WB.

So we most likely won't have to pay for the Klassic costumes?
May 26th, 2011 9:49 AM CST - cobalt21
This might seem irrelevant to the costumes DLC, but what about characters DLC ?! Lol xD. I'm really really hoping they announce Skarlet and Kenshi on Friday. Along with upcoming DLC characters. I'm hoping Tanya, Rain, and Frost! Does anyone know if there's an update on this character DLC topic? Thanks!
May 26th, 2011 10:11 AM CST - defcon
i dont care too much about klassic kostumes. all i really wanted is the 3 classic fatalities that are already DOWNLOADED(hence not DLC) and in the game, just not unlocked. hooray i get to pay to access fatals that are already there. B.S pro-rated pricing for buying just what i want ? of course not :reddy:

Guys!!! Are you agree of MK3 Kung Lao costume for DLC? Ed Boon mentioned me on his tweet asking if players would want MK3 Kung Lao..

Klassic MK1 Skin for Noob and Smoke should be in the DLC Bundle.

He's saying this so people don't pay $25+ for a skin that they'll be able to get in this pack for less than $10. [QUOTE=Weiland

This isn't true. You may have bought the info that's on the disc, but that doesn't mean you've bought the rights to use all of it.

I for one have been abusing the retro's for sub since online came back, mainly bc I knew they would release them. I think either 1: all classics will be free or 2: They will be released with kenshi and skarlett for $10. I also think that the mk3 cyrax and sektor will be bundled with noob and smoke's original costumes.
May 27th, 2011 6:02 AM CST - Weiland
That's hot garbage. That's like walking into a Best Buy to buy a HDTV and after purchasing it, they tell you that you have to spend an extra amount to have the right to use the HDMI ports that are built into the tv. There's no way that would ever fly, and the same holds true here. The selling of on disc content as DLC is a shady, underhanded business practice designed to rip off the customer/end user of content already purchased. It shouldn't be tolerated and there's no way it can even be justified.
May 27th, 2011 4:31 PM CST - LOLOMGWTFBBQ
I thought it was going to be free. I only want the fatalities anyways. I'm going to pass and pray they do a UMK3 Ninja DLC...
