Retailers Divy Up Klassic Mortal Kombat Fatalities

Posted on Tuesday, December 14 @ 14:00:00 Eastern by


Remember roasting your buddies with Scorpion in Mortal Kombat II? Toasty and all that?

I don't. I never possessed the mechanical memory to pull off a fatality without looking at a cheat code sheet printed off the Internet. Still, retailers Best Buy, Gamestop, and Amazon are trying to bank on that nostalgia about as hard as Warner Bros. games is.

If you've got a preferred fatality, you'll need to know where to go to unlock the classic fatalities in the new Mortal Kombat. Best Buy nabbed Sub-Zero's classic fatality, Gamestop has Scorpion's, and Amazon has Reptile's.

While I understand the reasoning behind retailer-specific preorder bonuses, this seems like a bit much. Should I be hitting the Revolutionary Rant key (it's just CAPS lock, but I put a special label on it)?
