The first of these special edition bundles is the "Kollector's Edition," which features Sub-Zero and Scorpion figurines, an art book, an "exclusive" classic Mortal Kombat costume skin, and themed avatar costumes. The other edition is the "Tournament Edition," which features a limited-release "portable fight stick" and another classic Mortal Kombat costume skin, as well as themed avatar costumes.
Pre-ordering either of these special editions, or even the vanilla edition of the pseudo-reboot, will get you additional "exclusive access" to DLC at Amazon, GameStop or Best Buy. I've created a little list here for your reading pleasure:
== TEASER == GameStop
- "Klassic" Scorpion Playable Character Skin
- Original Scorpion Fatality
- "Klassic" Sub-Zero Playable Character Skin
- Original Sub-Zero Fatality
- "Klassic" Reptile Playable Character Skin

The DLC fatalities appear in addition to the two character-specific fatalities that each character will have by default. Amazon is the first of these retailers to release an image of this pre-order DLC. Check out Reptile's classic look:
In other Mortal Kombat news, God of War's Kratos was confirmed as a PS3-exclusive character at the Spike VGAs. According to WBIE, he'll have his own move set, fatality, and fighting arena. NetherRealm's Ed Boon spoke briefly about Kratos' inclusion in a recent press release. "We could not be more excited to have Kratos in the new Mortal Kombat, since we've always felt he would fit perfectly into our universe and can't wait for Mortal Kombat and God of War fans to play this game," he said.
