Well, maybe you thought that you would wait until it got closer to the game's release in April and you ordered it earlier this week? Good, because late last night <b>GameStop</b> ran out of their allotment of <b>Tournament Editions</b> company-wide, which is a portion of the 20,000 previously stated as being available for <b>North America</b>.

Good news though late-comers, <b>Tournament Editions</b> are still available at other participating retailers. You can still pre-order <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004GD1Q2I?ie=UTF8&tag=kombat-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B004GD1Q2I">Mortal Kombat: Tournament Edition</a><img src="http://www.assoc-amazon.com/e/ir?t=kombat-20&l=as2&o=1&a=B004GD1Q2I" width="1" height="1" border="0" alt="" style="border:none !important; margin:0px !important;" /> from <b>Amazon</b> and receive the bonus <b>Reptile</b> costume and fatality. Also, pre-orders are still online at <a href="http://www.walmart.com/search/search-ng.do?search_query=mortal+kombat+tournament">Wal-Mart</a> - receiving the bonus <b>Mileena</b> features - and online at <a href="http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?id=pcat17071&type=page&st=mortal+kombat&sc=Global&cp=1&nrp=15&sp=&qp=&list=n&iht=y&usc=All+Categories&ks=960">Best Buy</a>. Although, one major caveat, <b>Best Buy</b> is stating that only the <b>Standard Edition (game only)</b> will receive their bonus <b>Sub-Zero</b> items, <b>Kollector's and Tournament Editions</b> are excluded. See our <a href="http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10150106145381857&set=a.341176491856.158983.208464561856&theater">Facebook post</a> detailing the <b>Best Buy</b> situation.

Also <a href="http://twitter.com/geoffkeighley">@geoffkeighley</a> on Twitter let slip that a new character will be revealed on GTTV next week. The tweet was quickly removed but thankfully we saved it.

@noobde: Love "The Bonus Round" on GTTV, this week they were reviewing the big games of 2011. Zero mention of MK. We'll show you @geoffkeighley !

@geoffkeighley: @noobde We can't mention them all . See you next week for the character reveal!
Sounds like we're getting a new character revealed next Thursday on <a href="http://www.gametrailers.com/show/gametrailers-tv">GameTrailers TV</a>, so set your DVRs!

So it sounds like they are going to film the segment next week. We won't actually get to see it for a week or two after that.
