Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection now available on Steam


Released for consoles a couple of months ago, the Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection was a compilation of the three Mortal Kombat arcade games: Mortal Kombat, Mortal Kombat II and Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, all uprezzed and online play enabled.

Now PC boffins can get their spine ripping fix with the Steam release of Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection for $US9.99, though it’s 15% off today.

The first three Mortal Kombat games were originally released on the PC many years ago. They’re actually pretty damn good ports too, but you’ll probably have a little bit of fun trying to get them to work with DOSBox, making the new Arcade Kollection re-release a nice alternative.

Video Game Ad of the Day: Mortal Kombat II

We’re back for 2012. Let’s start the year off with one of the biggest releases of the 16-bit era (and one of the most heavily promoted, too).

Mortal Kombat II for the 32X came out quite a bit later than the other versions (in part due to the system launching after their release), but boasted improved graphics and sound capabilities over the standard Mega Drive version. Still not a patch on the arcade version, but a competent port nonetheless.

Video Game Ad of the Day: Mortal Kombat II

The peak of the series, at least until the new one came out.

Mortal Kombat II was one of the most successful arcade ports during the fourth generation era when it was released in 1994. Nintendo decided against forcing Acclaim to censor the Super Nintendo version of the game after censorship led to the Mega Drive version of Mortal Kombat outselling their version by as much as 6 to 1. It was one of many factors that led to the SNES’s comeback and eventual victory in North America.
