Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection Is 3 Games For $10

With the current revamp of Mortal Kombat surpassing all expectations of sales and quality, it was only a matter of time before the original ‘trilogy’ was re-released.

Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection, as revealed by Warner Bros today, is going to be a single $10 download in Xbox Live or PSN that will include the original Mortal Kombat, Mortal Kombat II, and Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. Previously, Midway released UMK3 on XBox Live and MKII on PSN, but with that publisher out of business both games have long since been removed from the storefront.

The games are said to be the original arcade versions, enhanced with online play, leaderboards, and achievements/trophies. Graphics are not expected to be revamped, only upscaled to HD.

Rumors of the collection surfaced a few months ago, originally pegging the collected games at $39.99 on a Playstation 3 exclusive disc. While you won’t have another disc for your shelf, its hard to complain about getting the collection at a quarter of the price of the rumors!

Full press release follows.

Im here today to present you with the gift of a release date. After many months of certification weve finally secured an actual day for USA, Canada, and Mexico for Castle Crashers on the PlayStation Network. This gift is Tuesday, August 31st!!!!

Weve been working on Castle Crashers for PSN for about a year and a half. In that time Ive had the fortune of meeting everyone at tradeshows and lots of people will ask me, Cmon what is taking so long?. I have to say that weve felt the same way our whole teams goal is to make you all happy so we want to share it right now!! Were super antsy. But like all of our games we can never rush anything as its necessary to make sure that every little piece is airtight. and fun!

Weve teamed up with some other sites to give you a full list of contests for a chance to win free stuff. Be on the look out for these dates as we inch closer to the release. Perhaps something wonderful will be obtained?

Finally, were going to be at PAX (Penny-Arcade Expo) on September 3-5th at Booth #3102 so come on by and check out both Castle Crashers and BattleBlock Theater. We are building a 4-player Castle Crashers arcade cabinet which you can use at the show! Look out X-Men/Predator/Simpsons were coming after your distant memories!!!!

Some of the more fun parts of Red Faction Guerrilla were driving a car into a building to knock it down. Or hopping in a mech and wrecking the crap out of enemy soldiers forming on your position.

Sonic 4 delayed, but with new platforms announced

Ok, Sonic fans, this isn’t the news you were hoping to hear, but Sega has announced that Sonic 4 Episode 1 has been delayed from its previous summer 2010 release to ‘late 2010’. The reason given was basically to give the development team more time to tweak and fine tune the game. Also announced were the additions of the iPhone and iPod Touch to the list of platform options available for this game.

Not much more was given in terms of details for this announcement. Fortunately, Sonic fans are no strangers to waiting for good games.
