No offense to Warner Bros. Interactive’s shaolin/superhero mash-up Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe, but I like my interdimensional martial arts tournaments strictly Earthrealm-ian against Outworld-ian, no space orphans in form fitting spandex required.
If you share similar affection for the Mortal Kombat of your coin-guzzling youth, you’ll be equally pleased as I was to learn that the next Mortal Kombat game to hit store shelves might be an arcade compilation. Though as yet unannounced, a listing has appeared on ShopTo, a United Kingdom-based online videogames retailer, for a Mortal Kombat Arcade Compilation on the PlayStation 3, ostensibly along the lines of the one released on the PlayStation 2. This is not to be confused with Mortal Kombat 9, which is still scheduled for release sometime in early 2011.
Could be a case of a lazy listing writer, or it could be an accidental reveal of Warner Bros. plans to prime the fatality pump for the next numbered entry into the long-running series. Personally, I’m hoping for the later. Maybe babalities will finally be cool in high definition.
