Mortal Kombat 11 in Russia will include an exclusive Soviet-themed costume for Skarlet

Skarlet was one of the seven characters officially unveiled during Mortal Kombat 11's big reveal event last week though it appears as though she'll be receiving some extra love in the former Soviet Union.

During a reveal event taking place in Moscow, Russia, the country's special edition of the new fighting game was announced to come with a costume for Skarlet that will be exclusive to the region — for the time being at least.

This new Kold War outfit for Skarlet gives her back her red hair from Mortal Kombat 9 along with a heavily stylized Soviet military hat and coat in her signature red and black colors plus a mask across her face that contains a red star.

NetherRealm Studios released a similar set of costumes for Mortal Kombat X with the Kold War Pack which saw three Russian-themed outfits added to the game with Motherland Sonya, Tundra Sub-Zero and Revolution Kano — though those weren't exclusive to the country.

North America's Premium Edition of Mortal Kombat 11 appears to just come with a steelbook case and Kombat Pack for the game plus Shao Kahn DLC and beta access for those that pre-order it. A $300 Kollector's Edition is also up for pre-order which includes the aforementioned content and a 1:1 scale Scorpion mask based on his new look.

There is no official word yet from NetherRealm as to whether we should expect to see this cool rendition of Skarlet make its way West at some point in the future, but we can at least take a gander at it plus the Kollector's Edition in the gallery below.
