The Halloween Fatality as a stand-alone Fatality, when it was out, costed 1200 Dragon Crystals, and since the best bundle that you could get for that price is the bundle of 1250 Dragon Crystals, which cost 10%, this means that unless you didn't have enough Dragon Crystals stored already, this Fatality itself would cost you 10$.
Understandably, some fans didn't like the price tag, and as a response, NetherRealm Studios and WB Games decided that anyone who already bought the Happy Halloween Fatality when it was out, will get the full bundle, along with the other two Fatalities, automatically for free.
Now since that yours truly did buy the Halloween Fatality when it was out, I already got the Thanksgiving Fatality and for free via a patch that came last night, as you can see in the video below from my channel, where I played Reptile in Invasions Mode and did the Fatality, called Thanksgiving Finisher, during my Invasions playthrough. And yes, this Fatality is deliciously good.
Now for those of you who also already got the Happy Halloween Fatality as well, as I got to see myself, every character can only have one Holiday Fatality at a time. Even though they both have different inputs (U,U, BL for Happy Halloween and D,D, BL for Thanksgiving Finisher), you can't have both of them available for you to use at the same time, as when you go to the Finishers section in the Kustomize Mode, both Seasonal Fatalities are now listed in sub-section titled "Seasonal Fatalities", and when you select the checkbox for Thanksgiving Finisher, the checkbox for Happy Halloween will disappear, and vice versa.
However, as I also got to see myself already, you can choose which character gets to have each of the Holiday Fatalities. This means that you can have, let's say Reptile, have the Happy Halloween Fatality, then let Scorpion have the Thanksgiving Finisher Fatality, and this means it will be the same for the Winter Fatality, which you could give to Sub-Zero for example. This adds a whole new element of customization for MK1, as you can basically customize the list of Finishers for the entire roster to your liking, and it's very likely that NRS/WB will add even more Fatalities for us to pick and choose for every character.
All of these are more signs of great things to come for MK1 (2023) as it gets more content on top of the already incredible package that it has. Stay tuned for more news as they arrive.
Here are the full patch notes for the update, a very short list for this one. This patch is for all MK1 (2023) across all platforms.
- Thanksgiving Fatality added to Premium Store Rotation
- Added Seasonal Invasions content
