If you’re thinking to yourself right now — Mortal Kombat Kollection? When did they announce that? The answer is — they haven’t. But a game with that title from developer Blind Squirrel Games and publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has received an age rating (18 and up, of course) from PEGI, Pan European Game Information. It is apparently an upgraded version of the original Mortal Kombat trilogy, slated to come to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Here is the description offered by PEGI: “Mortal Kombat Kollection Online is the original Mortal Kombat trilogy that MK fans always wanted. Upgraded art, gameplay, and online features provide an incredible experience that revive the ‘klassics’…”
This information is a bit less shocking once we consider that Blind Squirrel Games was apparently working on a remaster of the original game back in 2017. However, it was reported canceled in 2018 as Warner Bros. allegedly did not trust Blind Squirrel Games with the development of such an important title. This PEGI rating for Mortal Kombat Kollection Online suggests this project is back, which would mean Warner Bros. changed its manner of thinking at some point.
Obviously, there are information gaps here. But it seems like fans of the original MK trilogy have something big to look forward to this year. They also have the Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge animated film coming in the first half of 2020.
