Mortal Kombat Kollection coming to PC late Summer 2011

Warner Bros. has just announced the Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection for Xbox Live Arcade, the PSN and PC.

The arcade trilogy will bundle Mortal Kombat, Mortal Kombat 2 and Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 into a single downloadable collection that'll be available in "late summer 2011".

Described as an "arcade- perfect port", the Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection will feature online play, leaderboards, achievements and trophies.

The game is being developed by Other Ocean in conjunction with NetherRealm, which handled last month's franchise reboot.

It'll cost 800 Microsoft points (£6.85) or £6.29 on the PSN and PC.

"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 NetherRealm creative director 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."
Boon had said he also wanted the newest version of the game on PC. This may be a start. I'm not even a big fan of this series outside of MK2, but I'm a big supporter of Arcade fighting games and am glad to see any that come to PC.

We want a PC port for the 2011 one, not the old ones.

You know, the original are arcade games, so they necessarily have to be ports.

Ports+online play. These will be the best versions of these three games to date especially if they are integrated into Steamworks for online matchmaking.

If they sell well, the recent MK 2011 coming to PC should become even more of a reality.

There we go. Developers starting to bring back the oldies on their own without Gog now that they realize there's still money there if you just publish them digitally.

Ha! Mortal Kombat 1 on the SNES is a joke. I'd rather have the new arcade ports, as long as they're good. The old PC versions were very good, but the first one was not precisely a fantastic port. I believe it still had the "Insert Coin" message, and forget about configuration menus, the config options were hidden in the Function keys.

Still, I prefer the PC versions to the console versions any day. Higher resolution, better graphics and more configuration/gameplay options. So far, in MK games, the PC versions have always been superior.
