Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection Takes Gamers Back in Time

With great pleasure and intense feelings of nostalgia I’d like to announce to gamers around the World that Warner Bros. will be releasing the three original Mortal Kombat titles that were first introduced in arcades back in the 1990’s.  The 3 MK games that started it all will be available later this Summer as a downloadable title on both the Xbox 360 and PS3 (if it’s up and running by then!) platforms.  This triple-pack of arcade goodness will only cost gamers $9.99, and Nether Realm is promising an “arcade perfect port” for those of us that are thinking of downloading this piece of gaming history.  In this MK combo pack these three titles will also come fully packed with leaderboards, MP, and achievements for you cheve whores out there.

In all honesty, I will not need to purchase this pack when it gets released.  This is mainly because I’ve owned these MK titles on pretty much every system they’ve been released on.  Not too mention all of those quarters and Saturdays spent at the Ross Park Mall arcade in Pittsburgh, PA playing MK with my original gaming posse Ben “Ding-dong” Barto and Jim “The Kwaz” Kwazneski.  I’d say I’ve already paid for MK1 and MK2 at least 10 times, but the thought of having cheves to obtain by playing these classics will ultimately win out over being economically conscious.  I’ll be keeping a close eye on this topic, so make sure to stay tuned for further updates as they come out.  In the mean time get some gaming history lessons in by watching old MK footage below.  You’ve been ready to give some of these younger gamers a chance to play games that you grew up rotting your brain with…
