Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection is a 2011 video game developed by Other Ocean Interactive and NetherRealm Studios and published by Warner Bros. Games.

It was released as a downloadable title for the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade on August 31, 2011 and for the PC on February 1, 2012.

Gameplay[edit]

The game includes online gameplay and the unlockable characters are always unlocked in online mode.

Development[edit]

The release was at first supposed to be an HD remake of the early Mortal Kombat games, featuring upscaled and redone character sprites, new backgrounds, and new user interface system, but the scope of the project was changed.[1] Known as Mortal Kombat HD Arcade Kollection,[2] this canceled project was never even officially announced.[3][4]
