The Komplete Edition of the game includes all four downloadable characters, as well as 15 throwback skins for the cast and three "Klassic" fatalities for the series' original trio of masked ninjas: Sub-Zero, Scorpion, and Reptile. The package will also come with downloadable versions of the 1995 feature film Mortal Kombat, as well as the music CD Mortal Kombat: Songs Inspired by the Warriors.

The first game in the franchise since 2008's Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe and the ninth in the series, Mortal Kombat was intended as a back-to-basics reboot. With a roster pulled almost entirely from the first three games in the series, Mortal Kombat also eschewed the 3D gameplay of later entries in the series by constraining the action to a 2D plane. The vanilla version of the game has sold more than 3 million copies to date.
