Mortal Kombat 1 pre-order guide: where to get every edition

Our Mortal Kombat 1 pre-order guide tells you exactly where you can order the Nintendo Switch version of the upcoming MK1 fighting game.

Mortal Kombat 1 pre-orders are live, and if you want to get the iconic villain Shang Tsung, you need to get your order in ahead of release. Since this fighting game is on its way to Nintendo Switch, we can’t help but let you know where you can get the game from – we need plenty of players to square off against, after all. It’s pointless listening to those famous words, “finish him (or her),” if there’s no one to, you know, finish.

Of course, pre-ordering the game is just the first step. You need to know who the Mortal Kombat 1 characters are (including Mortal Kombat’s Mileena and Mortal Kombat’s Scorpion) to decide which fighter suits you best to prepare for the Mortal Kombat 1 release date. Or, if you want to know what bloody action awaits you, our list of the best Mortal Kombat fatalities to date is a bloody treat.

Anyway, onto where Mortal Kombat 1 pre-orders are available.

What are the different Mortal Kombat 1 editions?

There are three Mortal Kombat 1 editions available:

  • Standard edition
  • Premium edition
  • Kollector’s edition

Mortal Kombat 1 Standard Edition

As you can probably guess, the standard edition of Mortal Kombat is a regular version of the game with no added extras, such as a steel book or the kombat pass. It retails for $69.99/£69.99 and releases on September 19, 2023.

Mortal Kombat 1 Premium Edition

The Premium edition of Mortal Kombat 1 not only includes the base game, but it also has:

  • The kombat pack
  • Five days early access, which begins on September 14, 2023
  • 1,250 dragon crystals

The Mortal Kombat 1 Premium Edition sets you back $109.99 (£84.99).

Mortal Kombat Kollector’s Edition

The most expensive of the three versions is the Mortal Kombat Kollector’s edition of the game, which includes:

  • The Mortal Kombat 1 premium edition of the game and its bonuses
  • Early access starting on September 14, 2023
  • A 16.5″ Liu Kang Statue
  • Three exclusive art prints
  • An exclusive in-game Liu Kang character skin
  • 1,450 additional dragon crystals (a total of 2,700)
  • A steel book

Naturally, a collector’s edition like this comes with quite a hit to your bank account, retailing at $249.99 (£239.99). However, this edition of the game isn’t available on Nintendo Switch. You have to go for the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S versions.
