Amazon Italy has recently introduced the Premium Edition of Mortal Kombat 1 to its online store, priced at 109.99€. This exclusive package includes the highly anticipated first Kombat Pack, providing gamers with a thrilling array of content. What sets Amazon apart from other retailers is their comprehensive breakdown of the package, unveiling the intriguing lineup of six playable characters: Quan Chi, Omni Man, Ermac, Peacemaker, Takeda, and Homelander. Additionally, they shed light on the captivating Kameo characters, namely Johnny Cage, Khameleon, Mavado, Ferra, and the JC skin inspired by the iconic Jean Claude Van Damme.
One fascinating revelation comes from the official Mortal Kombat 1 website. Confirming that Johnny Cage is indeed a playable character in the primary roster. However, it is important to note that Kameos are distinct from the main roster. Leaving us curious about their role and functionality. While the specifics remain unclear, there is speculation that these Kameo characters might serve as AI fighters. Offering assistance during battles when we are not controlling them directly. Consequently, it seems unlikely that Khameleon, Mavado, and Ferra will included in the primary roster.
Turning our attention to the six DLC characters. We find a captivating mix of Mortal Kombat regulars and guest appearances from the realm of comics. Among them, Peacemaker emerges as a notable addition, originating from the DC universe and recognized from James Gunn’s thrilling film “The Suicide Squad” as well as his own eponymous series. On the other hand, we have Omni Man, a clever parody of Superman portrayed by the talented J. K. Simmons in the popular animated series “Invincible,” and Homelander, another amusing Superman parody played by Antony Starr in the acclaimed show “The Boys.”
Fans of “Invincible” and “The Boys” will undoubtedly appreciate the brutal nature of these characters. Making them a perfect fit for the Mortal Kombat universe. Furthermore, Ermac, a beloved figure among Mortal Kombat enthusiasts, has been a subject of anticipation even prior to the recent trailer release. It’s worth mentioning that some dedicated fans have gone to the extent of photoshopping Scorpion to resemble an eerie fusion of undead souls.
Next, we encounter Takeda, the son of Kenshi and one of the notable characters from MKX. In the tenth installment of the game series, legacy characters were introduce and swiftly became beloved figures. Notable examples include Cassie, the offspring of Sonya Blade and Johnny Cage, as well as Kung Jin, the nephew of Kung Lao, and Jacqui, the daughter of Jax. While the fate of other remarkable characters remains shrouded in mystery. Fans who have eagerly requested Takeda’s return can now breathe a sigh of relief. However, it should be noted that obtaining access to Takeda will require an additional fee.
