When the Mortal Kombat (2011) Tournament Edition was announced back in December of last year, you rushed to your local GameStop and put down your deposit, right? 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 GameStop ran out of their allotment of Tournament Editions company-wide, which is a portion of the 20,000 previously stated as being available for North America.

Good news though late-comers, Tournament Editions are still available at other participating retailers. You can still pre-order Mortal Kombat: Tournament Edition from Amazon and receive the bonus Reptile costume and fatality. Also, pre-orders are still online at Wal-Mart - receiving the bonus Mileena features - and online at Best Buy. Although, one major caveat, Best Buy is stating that only the Standard Edition (game only) will receive their bonus Sub-Zero items, Kollector's and Tournament Editions are excluded. See our Facebook post detailing the Best Buy situation.

Also @geoffkeighley 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 GameTrailers TV, so set your DVRs!

Hey Pat, TRMK member Ginthis found this out via twitter. http://twitter.com/MK_MortalKombat/status/28797639935922176# In the words of the MythBusters, can we call this rumor "BUSTED?"

I think there is confusion, mostly on Best Buy's side. Lets hope WB corrects them.

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.
