Over on Games Radar, and confirmed by Midway Boards moderator Cinder, the four limited edition versions of Mortal Kombat: Armageddon have been revealed. Not only do the limited editions come with extra goodies such as a history of MK DVD and a port of Mortal Kombat 3, three of the box art versions show adversaries facing off against each other. From the news article:

In a press release the rest of the world will get tomorrow, publisher Midway has announced four different Premium Packs for the PS2 version of Mortal Kombat: Armageddon. Retailing at $49.95, three of the higher-end limited editions of the game will ship with different embossed, metallic covers that feature paired characters Sindel and Shao Kahn; Kano and Sonya; and Johnny Cage and Goro. The fourth edition's box art will be identical to that of the "regular" edition of the game (the MK logo), but metallic.

While the boxes are different, all four versions appear to feature the same "kontent:" A 60-minute bonus DVD with a History of Fatalities movie and new videos for more than 50 characters, an animation cell of the cover art autographed by creator Ed Boon and an arcade-perfect version of Mortal Kombat 3.

Cinder has also hinted that more news will be available tomorrow morning; when it breaks, we'll be sure to report it here!
