Mortal Kombat 1, like many of its predecessors, features a variety of unlockable items that players can earn. There are alternative skins for each fighter, as well as a range of other cosmetic extras. To unlock most cosmetic items, players will need one of the four currencies in MK1: Koins, Dragon Crystals, Crowns, or Seasonal Credits. Each currency is earned in different ways; Koins are earned through daily and weekly quests as well as level-ups, but players may be wondering how to obtain Dragon Crystals as they unlock all sorts of premium items.
What Can You Buy with Dragon Krystals in Mortal Kombat 1
Dragon Crystals are used in the in-game store to purchase non-seasonal premium items. This currency can be used for various items such as Easy Fatality Tokens, unique skins, alternative weapon designs, and featured skins. These items typically have prices ranging from around 100 to 1,000 Dragon Crystals and are often available for a limited time only.
How to Earn Dragon Krystals in Mortal Kombat 1
Currently, in Mortal Kombat 1, there is no way to earn Dragon Crystals by completing tasks within the game itself. If players want to obtain various skins, Easy Fatality Tokens, or other premium items, they have to spend real money in the store to buy them. However, if players have purchased either the Premium or Kollector editions of Mortal Kombat 1, they already start with a handful of these currencies. So, if players cannot earn them, they have to open their wallets instead to get some.
How to Buy Dragon Krystals in Mortal Kombat 1
For most players, Dragon Crystals are only available for purchase on Steam, PlayStation, Microsoft, or the eShop for fans of fighting games on the Nintendo Switch. The prices for them vary depending on the region, but for the United States, these are the current prices in all stores:
- 5,900 Dragon Krystals - $39.99 USD
- 2,700 Dragon Krystals - $19.99 USD
- 1,250 Dragon Krystals - $9.99 USD
- 500 Dragon Krystals - $4.99 USD
Once the Krystals have been purchased, players can go back to the MK1 shop and use them to acquire cosmetic items as well as eventually add collections and characters they want to their lineup. It's likely that more items will be added to the shop over time as new seasons are launched, DLCs are released, and new characters and skins become available.
Mortal Kombat 1 is available for PC, PS5, Switch, and Xbox Series S/X.
