Lame news posts titles aside, Mortal Kombat and Mortal Kombat: Annihilation are being released on Blu-ray on April 19th to coincide with the release of the new Mortal Kombat game. With purchasing one of these movies you get a code for an exclusive Jade character costume for the upcoming Mortal Kombat game. But it’s only for the PS3 version of the game, sorry 360 folks. If that doesn’t get you to purchase these classics then maybe the fact that they both come with digital copies will. Still doesn’t get you? Well then… that’s actually it, both movies are lacking on special features it seems. Mortal Kombat includes an animated piece: Mortal Kombat: The Journey Begins, a trailer for the movie, and a trailer for the new Mortal Kombat game. Mortal Kombat: Annihilation features the last two things I listed that in the Mortal Kombat Blu-ray.
I am excited for this as I grew up with these two movies and they were the best, if not most ridiculous, movies I have ever seen and I can’t wait to own them on Blu-ray.
