Mortal Kombat 11 released yesterday for PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, and while standard editions for a big title like this usually sit at $60 for weeks before dropping, NetherRealm’s new fighting game is already discounted at Amazon (even Anthem lasted five days before dropping in price). We initially reported yesterday that the PS4 price had dropped $5, but Amazon has since increased the discount to $10 off–and that now applies to all three console versions.
Amazon’s algorithm works in mysterious ways, and it’s possible the site is price-matching a random deal somewhere else on the internet, but regardless of the reason, you might as well save yourself $10 if you were planning to pick up Mortal Kombat 11 this week. If you’re a Prime member, you’ll get free two-day shipping on this title as usual.

The game received an 8/10 in GameSpot’s Mortal Kombat 11 review. “MK11 isn’t just a sequel for series fans and Netherrealm devotees, it’s a gateway into the realm of fighting games for anyone who has a passing interest in watching ruthless warriors beat each other silly,” wrote Edmond Tran. “Streamlined mechanics keep the act of fighting furiously exciting no matter what your skill level, and comprehensive tutorials encourage you to dig into the nitty-gritty. There’s a diverse roster of interesting characters and playstyles, and the story mode is an entertaining romp.”
