Mortal Kombat Kollection rated by PEGI for multiple platforms

A remastered trilogy with modern features

Back in early 2019, Warner Bros. reportedly canceled a collection of Mortal Kombat remasters. A new rating has now been spotted on the Pan European Game Information (PEGI) database for a Mortal Kombat collection.

According to the listing, the game is called Mortal Kombat Kollection Online and will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch. As you’d expect, its also rated PEGI 18, but the game carried a release date for January 21, 2020. As no word of such a release has emerged, it’s safe to say that was merely a placeholder.

The game is described as “the original Mortal Kombat trilogy that MK fans always wanted,” and will feature upgraded graphics and gameplay. What modern-day features will make it into the remaster is unknown but just thinking about the possibilities is exciting. The listing has since been removed from the PEGI database.

In a report by DSOGaming, Blind Squirrel Games was identified as the developer preparing to work on the project at the time. Warner Bros. supposedly chose not to go ahead with the project as it considered the remasters too big a development for a team “without any completed game titles,” to handle. Blind Squirrel Games is known for other remasters like Borderlands and BioShock: The Collection.

Interestingly, Blind Squirrel Games’ proposed remaster shares the same name as the current PEGI rating.  Whether they’ll take part in the development of the collection is unknown, but Warner Bros. didn’t overstate this fan’s desire for a remaster.
