ThinkGeek Introduces Vinyl 'Mortal Kombat' Album

While we wait to see whether or not Mortal Kombat 11 will debut at The Game Awards this week, there is a way you can get your fill of fighting classic goodness -- as long as you have a record player of some kind.

ThinkGeek has begun offering a sweet Mortal Kombat vinyl album that you can get at their store right now for $29.99 plus shipping. As you can see from the pictures, the set looks pretty sweet with its custom printed album, as well as tunes that can be found in both the original Mortal Kombat, along with Mortal Kombat II.

Here’s everything you need to know about the album, straight from the ThinkGeek product page:

CHOOSE YOUR FIGHTER

For a long time, there was only one way to get the soundtrack from Mortal Kombat II: you had to pass a MKII arcade cabinet while it was in attract mode, this screen had to come up, you had to jot down the details (remember: no cell phone cameras back then), you had to mail a check for $12.45 to the address in Chicago, and in 6-8 weeks you'd get a CD of video game soundtrack goodness. Provided you got all that done before February 22, 1995.

There is a simpler way: just buy this album. This Mortal Kombat I & II: Arcade Soundtrack Vinyl LP comes packaged in a gorgeous gatefold jacket and contains music from the games. Because we know you already have the movie music. And now you have it running through your head. Dun dun dun dun dun dun Dun dun dun dun dun dun Dun dun dun dun dun dun Dun dun dun dun-nun dun-nun....
