Enormously popular fighting game Mortal Kombat X is getting more downloadable content and this time it has nothing to do with horror villains ripped for movies and pop culture. Instead, the new Mortal Kombat X Brazil Costume Pack adds some much needed color to the war-drop of a few of the game’s most notable characters.
Ed Boon, the director of NetherRealm Studios and co-creator of the Mortal Kombat franchise revealed the Brazil Costume Pack was real in a tweet this week. Though the message didn’t include any extra information about the Brazil Costume Pack it did include a picture of some of the games iconic characters wearing Brazilian attire. A leak a few days ago first revealed that the Brazil Costume Pack was on the way.
Users who purchase the Brazil Costume Pack get a refreshed Johnny Cage in a yellow shirt with the Mortal Kombat series logo on it. Also updated through the pack is Liu Kang, who sports a Kelly Green sport band around his head and a sleeveless green and yellow T-Shirt. Kung Lao also gets a new costume through this pack. Both of these outfits seem football inspired. The new costume for him in this pack gives him a more South American cowboy look.

It is unclear when users can expect the Mortal Kombat X Brazil Costume Pack to arrive in digital game marketplaces like the Xbox Store and PlayStation Store. Boon only confirmed the existence of the Brazil Costume Pack. His message didn’t include any information about when we can expect the pack to launch or how much it’ll cost individually.
We do know that all content being made available for Mortal Kombat X is included in the Mortal Kombat X Kombat Pass. For $29.99, the Kombat Pass gets Xbox One and PS4 users access to every piece of content available for the game. Already Kombat Pass buyers have access to Jason Voorhees, a special horror character added after the game’s initial release. The Mortal Kombat X Kombat Pass isn’t cheap at $29.99 plus the cost of the game, but NetherRealm is at least making the pack worth consideration.
Mortal Kombat X is the latest entry in one of gaming’s most popular franchises. The original version of the game launched before there was 3D graphics and expansive 3D open-world games. In the original Mortal Kombat and Mortal Kombat X your objective is the same: kill skillfully and quickly.
There are dozens of characters in the game. Users choose a character and then explore the game’s multiplayer and dedicated story mission. Multiplayer puts players against gamers who are just as skilled as they are from around the world. The single player mode explores what’s next for the group of heroes and villains trying to control the mortal realm.
Mortal Kombat X launched on Microsoft’s Xbox One an Sony’s PS4 consoles on April 7th, which is probably where we can expect the Brazil Costume Pack to appear first. There are other versions of the game available too though. There’s a Mortal Kombat X for iPhone, iPad already available. Another version for Android smartphones and tablets launched recently.
Originally there were four console versions of Mortal Kombat X expected to launch at the same time: Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360 and PS3. Rather than delay all four console versions of the game, NetherRealm and Warner Brothers Interactive opted to break up their release window. Mortal Kombat X for Xbox 360 and PS3 is still something that’s in development, but it hasn’t launched yet. Warner Brothers now says users can expect those versions of the game to reach store shelves on June 2nd.
GameStop has new copies of Mortal Kombat X for $60.
