Before HD collections were all the rage and even before the recent Mortal Kombat reboot, Midway started developing Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection HD. Other Ocean Interactive, the studio that handled Ultimate Mortal Kombat for the DS, was also making Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection HD.

 

When Warner Bros. acquired Midway they canceled the project and opted to release straight ports of the Mortal Kombat arcade games as Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection. A few pieces of artwork from Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection HD leaked out like a new model for Mileena and Stryker’s T-rex animality.

      No, MK3 had anamalities where the finishing move would turn into an animal, in this case Stryker would turn into a T-Rex

    Despite WB doing good for the franchise, this would’ve been gold.

    …I’ve gotten to the point where I instantly recognize a title written by Spencer without even looking at the author name.

    Huh. I guess they wanted to save money. Curious now though… how well did the collection they DID release sell in comparison to the HD re-releases at the time? Enough to justify it’s budget? Below estimations? Like, is there any way to accurately say that the collection that got released was a poor decision or a sound one?

    I don’t mind. MK9 was basically a HD version of the older games anyway. Only done much better overall.

      What if it was a Mytholgies and Special Forces HD collection?

    O man…this makes me so sad…I want this to be real so bad!
    I own the MK HD Collection that came out for the Playstation 3 and of course love it.
    But this would be a dream come true, I kid you not, if they would make MK1,
    MK2, MK3 and bundle it like they did with the HD collection that came
    out I would even be happy to pay 60 bucks for it if they would bring it
    out on the PS4!
    Fingers crossed that it will still happen some day.
