MOOOOORTAL KOOOMBAAAAT!

I think I'm going to stick to the new MK, though. These old games are great, but... they're old.

Posted by MattBosten

A must purchase for me!

Posted by SMTDante89

I'm still conflicted on this. MK9 is really good, but I might pick up the fight stick from GameStop that comes with a download code for the game.

Edited by skrutop

Since MK9 came out, I don't feel a strong need to play the older MKs. It's not like Street Fighter 3rd Strike where the game still holds up and plays well compared to SF4; the early MK games were a bit of a mess to play. UMK3 might still be worth it, but again, MK9 fills that need quite nicely.

Please be released in Australia. Please be released in Australia.

so controverseeeeeeal

I would've totally bought this in a pre-MK9 world.

This QFT. I wish it had come out before MK9, then I would have picked it up no bother. However, anytime I want MK action now, 9 is enough for me. Shame though, looks like a great package.

'controversee-al' okay then...

Posted by MacEG

Wowzers

Posted by Forcen

They should release this on Steam.

Posted by kagato

Ill say i wont buy it, i even believe it right now, but i guarantee ill see it on the live marketplace and before i know what ive done ill have it in my download queue...

These games revolutionized the letter K.

Posted by MisterMouse

all of the MK!

Posted by The_Nubster

MK 2 and 3 were released to tell the tale of the Mortal Kombat tournament? Riiiiight.

Posted by BooDoug187

They should have that commercial from when the first MK was released on home systems as a unlock

Posted by Tesla

The time to release this was a month or two before the release of MK9. Oops.

Posted by bingbangboom

Tempting but I still need to get back into MK9. I took some time to play LA Noire but I really want to see what they are going to do next.

Posted by TheMartino

If this uses the same netcode as MK9 then I'm not buying this.

MAME?

Posted by Phoenix87

This trailer just reminded me that arcades used to exist.

Posted by Gintamen

Will probably buy it, if my hardcore MK friend get's it to, just to see every single fatality being probed on me.^^

Posted by Pythagosaurus

Also going to chime in with the "MK9 is too good to warrant purchasing this" sentiment.
 
Definitely would have eaten this up a month or so before 9, though.

Posted by Bestostero

weeeeee! I'll definitely pick this up

Posted by Chaos_Bladez

I probably can't play these after MK9 and I've never even played these! MK9 just plays too well.

Posted by Lingxor

This could have been extra special if they recaptured everything in HD.

Posted by aspaceinvader

Won't be picking these up as the current MK is the only one worth playing now. Good Package if you want some very old skool MK.

Posted by nyv

What the fukk. Arcade? Arcade?!! Should be Arkade. These guys don't know how to do Mortal Kombat...

Posted by PulledaBrad
@SMTDante89 Unless they opened it an pulled it out of course
Posted by MarxMygdala

1992... It hasn't even been 19 years since MK1; so, doesn't saying "decades," plural, seem a bit disingenuous?

Posted by G0rd0nFr33m4n

Was this not supposed to be released on steam as well ?

Posted by csl316

Takes me back to the days when we had to play this game in secret.

Posted by oscar

@nyv: The "k" is only for words that start with "c"

@MarxMygdala: You raise a... point. Not a good one, but a point nonetheless.

Posted by freakin9

Interesting, though unless they plan to include multiple versions of each game, this seems like an overenthusiastic way to finally release MK1. Love me some MK, but I don't want MK1 that badly.

Edited by Seroth

If the versions of MK2 and UMK3 in this package are leagues better than their original digital releases, than that's cool...

But I was much more excited for this when it was rumored to be an HD remix, with new digitized actors. I would've at least liked it if they included Rain and Noob from the console versions of UMK3 (their playable debut wasn't in Trilogy, contrary to popular belief).

But, hey, I'll still get it, if they fixed all the stupid crap from the original PSN/XBLA versions. It's 10 bucks!

Posted by jorbear

I hope I get to play this in a manner similar to Game Room.

Posted by craigymail

This online experience better be fucking better then MK9, all I'm saying.

Posted by InCertainSights

I hope this one will make it to the german live marketplace

Posted by FlyBikes06

this is awesome

Posted by BlazeHedgehog

I kept waiting for this trailer to segue in to a full blown Mortal Kombat "making-of" documentary. What a let down!

Posted by Dark_Lord_Spam

"Decades." Two of them.

Well, they're in their second decade, so I guess it counts.
Posted by briangodsoe

They're counting it like this: 90s, 00s, 10s. Three decades. You guys are hilarious.

Arcade collection? Neat!

Amazing how silly the original MK games look now...
