It would cost over $300 to get every character in Mortal Kombat X
Whole lotta Koins
If you wanted to buy the entire character roster in the new Mortal Kombat X for iOS (and soon Android), it would cost you over $300.
The game's fighters - which range from veterans like Sub-Zero to franchise newbies like Cassie Cage - can be picked up from randomised card parks, or you can buy them ala carte from the in-game shop.
But it won't be cheap as you'll need 863,000 Koins and 6,065 souls to get all the characters in all their different versions (so that includes, say, Johnny Cage, Stunt Double Johnny Cage, and A-List Johnny Cage).
Even with the most cost-effective currency purchases, you'd need to spend £62.96 / $79.96 on Koins and £166.26 / $207.96 on Souls, for a combined cost of £229.22 / $287.92.
You'll end up with 1,000 leftover Koins and 25 spare souls.
That doesn't include Covert Ops Cassie Cage, Assassin Kitana, and Warlock Quan Chi who are exclusive to randomised Kombat Packs, which cost 120 souls (about £7.99 / $9.99) a pop.
So even if you're super lucky that's another 30 bucks.
If you wanted to get just the normal versions of each character, you could spend just 764,000 Koins, at a cost of around £55.97 / $69.97. Sound better?
Koins are given out often in game, but are also spent on upgrades and equipment. Souls are the game's premium currency and are given out very rarely.
We weren't too fond of the game, calling it an "awfully simple screen masher" in our 6/10 review.
Here's the full breakdown of who costs what:
|Character Name||Koin Cost||Souls Price|
|Stunt Double Johnny Cage||200|
|Swarm Queen D'Vorah||220|
|Shaolin Kung Jin||225|
|Blood God Kotal Kahn||250|
|Demolition Sonya Blade||250|
|A-List Johnny Cage||270|
|Bojutsu Kung Jin||300|
|Tactical Sonya Blade||300|
|Sun God Kotal Khan||310|
|Master of Souls Ermac||325|
|Covert Ops Cassie Cage|
|Warlock Quan Chi|
