Me and Mortal Kombat go way back. When I was but a wee lad, I spent a good amount of time on the early games, whether it was at the arcade, or at a friend’s house. I could never remember the fatality inputs, but doing the classic Spear > Uppercut as Scorpion was the easiest, and most enjoyable, combo my ten year old noggin could grasp.
Which makes me glad to hear that the Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection, which contains the first three MK games of the franchise in one pack, helps to relive those days of my youth. The pack is out now for PSN, and will be available for the XBLA tomorrow. PC users will have to wait a little longer to get theirs. All versions include modern perks such as online play, leaderboards, and achievements/trophies.
To commemorate the occasion, NetherRealm Studios released a new trailer detailing the special history behind the game. Check it out after the break.
