Mortal Kombat: Arcade Kollection has finally been announced for Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network and PC. This collection will include arcade perfect versions of Mortal Kombat 1, Mortal Kombat 2Mortal and Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 for digital download on XBLA & PSN this Summer for $10/800 Microsoft Points! Hell yeah!
You may recall that this Mortal Kombat Arcade Compilation collection originally appeared as a retail listing for various stores online in the UK, but the game was never confirmed and seemed to disappear into the ether with nary a sign from Warner Bros. who owns the rights to MK or NetherRealm Studios who developed Mortal Kombat 2011 (with co-creator Ed Boon at the helm).
“We are very excited to finally have the first three Mortal Kombat games available in one download package for long-time and new fans to play,” said series creator Ed Boon. “With the release of our 2011 Mortal Kombat, and its return to 2D game play, players have been asking for these classic titles and we are happy to deliver them.”
Developed by Other Ocean in conjunction with NetherRealm studios, the Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection will offer fans the chance to play through the games in their original arcade state and rediscover all their favorite characters, fatalities and environments as well as relive some of the franchise's most memorable secrets. “Original arcade state” means the games have not been touched up with high-definition visuals. But considering I love me some N64 Mortal Kombat Trilogy and most people have been forced to play these games on older systems, I hardly see that as a problem.
In addition, this new collection will feature online play, leaderboards, Achievements and Trophies all for the equivalent of only 40 quarters!
Additionally, GameStop will be offering limited edition new Mortal Kombat Klassic Fight Sticks, manufactured by Performance Designed Product (PDP), who made the MK2011 Fight Sticks, in celebration of the classic fighters finally being re-released. They’ll only be available while supplies last! So act fast and pre-order the MK Klassic Kollection Fight Sticks at GameStop so you don’t miss out!
“Crush the competition online as you finish your opponents off with this limited edition Mortal Kombat Klassic Fight Stick. The design of the Mortal Kombat Klassic Fight Stick is derived from the wooden arcade cabinets from the golden age of gaming, and features the classic Mortal Kombat ergonomic button layout with Suzo-Happ arcade quality components to best optimize gameplay. The Fight Stick also has a memory foam underside for comfortable lap use, and features the actual arcade cabinet graphics from the iconic Mortal Kombat 1 arcade machine.”
If you purchase the arcade stick you will also receive a download code to get the game for free. However the stick comes at a steep price of $129.99 and will be available August 31st!
