  1. It should be noted that the third fatalies for Scorpion, Reptile and Sub-Zero can be done with any costume, as long as you have the MK1 costume.
    EG- Scorpion can do the Toasty fatality (D,D,U,HP) with his Primary and Alternate costumes, as long as you have the MK1 costume (only available with preorders, at least until the DLC starts coming out).

    • They were bonuses for preordering from different stores
      Scorpion= GameStop
      Reptile= Amazon
      Sub-Zero= Best Buy
      Mileena= WalMart
      Unless you preordered from one of these stores ahead of time there is no way to get them right now. I’m sure all of these will eventually become DLC, we just have to wait.

  2. But do you unlock them when you fight them in those secret fights where they wear classis costumes(with Reptile,Jade,Noob,Smoke)????

    • I don’t think you can unlock them. I know they’re in the game as alternate outfits for the secret fights, but I don’t think you can use them. At least until the DLC comes out.

  3. Are there requirements for the babalities?  It seems they won’t work for me on the right side even though I adjust the moveset accordingly.  They also don’t seem to work if my character is facing the back.
