WB Games has announced today that Mortal Kombat (2011) will receive a re-release that contains every downloadable fighter and costume skin/fatality released as DLC. The new Komplete Edition will also include digital downloads of the Mortal Kombat: Songs Inspired by the Warriors album released last year and a download of the 1995 film Mortal Kombat on PSN and Xbox Live. Check for this release in stores on Tuesday, February 28th.

Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition delivers the critically acclaimed game, all previously released downloadable content (DLC), plus digital downloads of the 2011 release of Mortal Kombat: Songs Inspired by the Warriors album with a bonus track, and the 1995 Mortal Kombat film on the PlayStation(R)Store or Xbox Live Zune. The DLC includes fan-favorite warriors Skarlet, Kenshi and Rain, as well as the infamous dream stalker Freddy Krueger. The game also offers 15 Klassic Skins and three Klassic Fatalities (Scorpion, Sub-Zero and Reptile). Mortal Kombat: Songs Inspired by the Warriors is a collection of electronic music inspired by the game and is executive produced by JFK (of the DJ/production duo MSTRKRFT and Death From Above 1979).

No word on pricing. This is was the second of the three NetherRealm surprises mentioned by Ed Boon.

After months of rumors and mentions by Sony at various events, Warner Bros. has officially announced the release of Mortal Kombat for the PlayStation Vita. The release date is said to be Spring according to WB Games UK on Twitter.

There isn't many details, but the press release had this quote from Ed Boon about it. To us it makes it sound like it's a port of Mortal Kombat (2011) with specialized Vita features instead of a new game. This would make sense because the game's Unreal Engine 3 will run on the PS Vita.

The NetherRealm team is committed to making sure that we follow up the success of 2011's Mortal Kombat with an equally compelling experience on the PlayStation Vita. The original game content and new features we developed for the PlayStation Vita will provide gamers with the best fighting game experience available on the new mobile platform." - Ed Boon, Creative Director, NetherRealm Studios

One interesting point of note, is that they say the game is going to be playable at the Vita preview Vita Hill Social Clubs which are opening across the US today. I have received word that the game will not be there starting today, but to stay tuned to the PlayStation Blog for more details on when it and other new Vita games will be available to play before the Vita launches on February 22nd, 2012.
