I mean, I've preordered anyway, but it's still a baffling marketing choice to me.
- they have already reached a favorable enough number of pre-orders for the game
- they think just Shao Kahn's name and character by themselves, as well as, well, the game, are enough incentive for a pre-order
- the Shao Kahn gameplay reveal trailer will actually drop around next week, but only his breakdown will happen on april 22nd
