Kombat Pack owners will receive DLC characters one week early in Mortal Kombat 11; Nintendo Switch players will require a hefty day one patch

Buying the cartridge won't really save you on storage space or downloads

Mortal Kombat 11 is now less than two weeks away from its launch date on April 23, and its updated appearance on the digital storefronts has given us a better understanding of what to expect for post-launch content and file sizes for at least one platform.

The Nintendo eShop and other stores now list NetherRealm Studios' new title's Premium Edition that includes the first Kombat Pack for MK11 plus its contents. Some data-miners have also been poking around its listings to discover even more hiding underneath the surface.

While the Kombat Pack itself is not available for pre-order, MK11's Premium Edition is which details how many new characters, DLC gear and costumes will be released in its first year or so on the market.

Listed as the Kombat Pack's contents are seven new skins, seven pieces / collections of gear, one week early access to fighters ahead of the general public and six new characters — the first of which will be Shang Tsung. Shao Kahn is not included as the six, as he's a pre-order bonus that will cost $5.99 USD after the game launches.

Data-miners like NWPlayer123 have dug deeper into Mortal Kombat's store entry on Switch to reportedly discover the full game will use up around 22.5 GB on the system though the base file itself is only 6.5 GB. This possibly points to NRS and Warner Bros. going with a smaller cartridge size on Nintendo's platform which will likely make players with the physical media download an additional 15.9 GB before they can launch the game.

Mortal Kombat 11 Premium Edition is now available for pre-order for $99 likely pointing to the Kombat Pack's final price landing in the $40 range.
