That reboot turned out well, didn't it? But doesn't it make you even more nostalgic for the good ol' arcade days?
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has announced the Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection , coming soon to the PlayStation Network, Xbox Live Arcade, and PC. This is the original trilogy: Mortal Kombat , Mortal Kombat 2 , and Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 . It's being developed by Other Ocean in conjunction with NetherRealm Studio, and it'll feature online play, leaderboards, achievements and trophies. Said Ed Boon NetherRealm Creative Director:
"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. 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."
This "arcade-perfect port" will be available this summer and cost $9.99 on the PSN (or 800 Microsoft Points on Live). On top of which, just so we can get the authentic feel of the arcade, GameStop will offer an exclusive limited run of the new Mortal Kombat Klassic Fight Stick, designed by Performance Designed Products (PDP). This will come bundled with a download code for the Arcade Kollection , so you'll be all set to go. If you're a hardcore fighter fan, you'll pre-order this package, which will hold a price tag of $129.99.
Anybody else remember when a parent who thought all arcades were just bouncy and colorful finally saw MK? Remember that horrified expression? …it was funny.
