Amazon Italy has added Mortal Kombat 1 – Premium Edition, which comes with the first Kombat pack, to the store for 109.99€. But unlike other retailers, it details what’s included, revealing that the six playable characters are Quan Chi, Omni Man, Ermac, Peacemaker, Takeda, and Homelander. We also analyze the characters Kameo, the skin of JC’s Johnny Cage, Khameleon, Mavado, Ferra, and Jean Claude Van Damme.
Interestingly, the official Mortal Kombat 1 website has confirmed that Johnny Cage is a playable character on the main roster, and we know that Kameos is separate. It’s unclear how they work and what exactly they are. It is believed that it could be an AI warrior helping us in battle. This means that you can get help from JC when you are not playing as JC. But that means Khameleon, Mavado, and Ferra are unlikely to make it to the main roster.
The six DLC characters are all from the comics, half from Mortal Kombat and the other half as guest appearances. Peacemaker is a DC villain seen in James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad and his namesake show, Omni-Man is a parody of Superman played by JK Simmons in Invincible, and Homelander is Other A parody of Superman played by Antony Starr in The Boys.
If you’ve seen Invincible and The Boys, you’ll know that the two are brutal enough to fit perfectly into the Mortal Kombat universe. Ermac, meanwhile, is a fan-favorite MK character that many have been curious about since before yesterday’s trailer, but right after, some fans went as far as Photoshop Scorpion to make him look like an undead fusion of souls.
Then there’s Kenshi’s son Takeda, one of the MKX children. In the 10th game, legacy characters were introduced and quickly became major characters. We had Sonya and JC’s child Cassie, Kung Lao’s niece Kung Jin, and Jax’s daughter Jacqui. Whether or not we’ll ever see anyone other than the Teen-Titans remains a mystery, but demand his return You can rest easy. However, you will have to pay a little extra to get your hands on him.
Mortal Kombat 1 launches on September 19th and is available for pre-order right now along with the Premium Edition. It is unknown when the Kombat pack will be released.
