To coincide with the release of the collection GameStop released a limited run of Mortal Kombat Klassic Fight Sticks manufactured by Performance Design Products for $129.99 that includes a code to download the Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection. The stick features artwork similar to the original Mortal Kombat arcade control panel and each stick is individually numbered 1 through 6000 on a plaque on the back of the stick. The stick is similar to the previously released Mortal Kombat Tournament Edition Stick but lacks the storage and easy open hinge, but is now slightly shorter and almost a pound lighter. One improvement is that it now has Cherry brand microswitches on the buttons for added responsiveness.
Though never officially announced, a couple of European online retailers listed something called Mortal Kombat HD Arcade Kollection for pre-order in 2010. Some early leaks contained information that the game would come bundled with a playable demo version of the Mortal Kombat reboot. The collection was due as a PlayStation 3 exclusive with all-new graphics, support for 3D televisions, and was originally said to be shipping in November 2010. After that date came and went, a new March 2011 date slipped out. Eventually it appears that the game was canceled in favor of a downloadable remake collection that remained faithful to the original arcade versions of the games and appeared on multiple platforms.
Re-live this arcade classic with the first 3 instalments of the Mortal Kombat franchise. Power through on-on-one combat with special multi-button attacks and moves unique to each character, including the famous fatality. In this bundle die-hard Mortal Kombat fans can move on to the third instalment which introduces network play, where they can challenge other die-hard friends to see who is truly the king of kombat. Other features include dial-a-combo attacks, a run button to speed up battles, and vs codes, which unlock new powers and abilities once both players enter a code sequence in pre-match-up screens. 2b1af7f3a8
