Arcade Kollection Now Officially Available for PC

Computer gaming nostalgists will be able to go home again with mouse and keyboard in hand thanks to the official release of Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection for PC!

GamersGate currently have the game listed for $9.95, for a 428.81MB download file. Arcade Kollection contains versions of the original games that made the series, a perfect package for curious millineals and 2011 converts who missed the early nineties originals -- Mortal Kombat (1992), Mortal Kombat II (1993) and Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 (1995).

System requirements:
Operating system Windows Vista (32/64 bit) / Windows 7 (32/64 bit)
Processor: 2.0+ GHZ Single Core Processor (Minimum Requirements) / 3.0 GHZ Dual Core Processor (Recommended)
Memory: 1GB RAM
Hard Disk Space: 3 GB
Video Card: NVIDIA 6200+ or ATI Radeon 9600+ Video Card, Shader Model 3.0 compatible, Supporting 16:9 Aspect Ratio (Minimum Requirements) / NVIDIA 7900 GS or Equivalent (Recommended)
DirectX: DirectX 9.0c

The apparent release puts to bed confused speculation about the status of a Games for Windows kollection. In December, Joystiq reported quotes from series Director and co-creator, Ed Boon, who added fuel to the fire of a possible cancellation. Arcade Kollection was released digitally in August, 2011 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 [full story].

Dedicated members of the kommunity continue to call for a PC release for Mortal Kombat -- the award winning 2011 game that rebooted the franchise. The last time the series produced a new game for PC platforms was Mortal Kombat 4, in 1998. Warner Brothers Games and NetherRealm Studios have not shown interest in pursuing a PC alternative to the immensely successful console title.

[MK4] received mixed reviews for its similar PlayStation and PC arcade ports, which were anecdotally unprofitable for then series owners, Midway Games. In 2002, Midway Marketing staff, David Tokheim and Randy Severin, told Mortal Kombat Online that PC versions had notoriously failed to return cost, resulting in an absence on computer from Deadly Alliance, onward.

Franchise rival, Street Fighter IV, has enjoyed a noteworthy foray into the traditionally small fighting game market on PC. A bouyant addition to Steam saw the game a top seller on its release, in July 2009 [via Kotaku]. With arcade versions developed using Taito Type X systems, Capcom's unlikely PC release may have been precipitated by existing technologies, the Taito system noted for using existing Windows XP components, a unique advantage.

Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection is expected to join the Steam store soon. Update: MKAK is now on Steam and 15% off, to boot! Mortal Kombat Online will keep PC gamers up to date on developments. Discuss your feelings about MK on PC on the forums, and follow @MK_Online for more.

Oh GOD, I hope not. They were the most broken additions in SNES/Genesis UMK3 and Trilogy, with their INCREDIBLY easy infinites.

Noob: teleport slam, hp, hp, teleport slam, hp, hp, repeat
Rain: roundhouse, step in hp, roundhouse, step in hp, roundhouse, repeat

I think this is a test run to see if Mk9 is worth porting.

Not necessarily. This isn't the first time the classic MK games have been ported to PC recently, as MK1, MKII, and MK3 were all included in the PC release of Midway Arcade Treasures. It could be that they looked at the numbers and found that it would be far cheaper and more profitable to port MKAK to PC than it would to port MK2011.

Just my $.02...

I've been playing with MAME for years too. I bought the Arcade collection yesterday. Why would not support the people who made these games?

So, are you saying that if I'm much more into video games than music, I should buy the video games and pirate the music?

MAME = Piracy.

Anyway, I'm pretty happy with the port. Well worth the $10. It'd be nice to have some resolution options and the ability to use the mouse in the menu though... you think with them taking so long they'd put some effort into giving it basic PC features.

RE: Arcade Kollection Now Officially Available for PC

I to am surprised at the requirements to play this on the pc.

While I don't support pirating games or anything for that matter.
I will say that, mame imo, runs the games better and the fact that you have the option of playing different versions of it, makes mame a much better deal. Plus, assuming the lobby system is the same in the pc version of mkak, mame again, is better, again imo of course.

RE: Arcade Kollection Now Officially Available for PC

This version is fun. I just wish it didn't limit what buttons you could remap. That is just idiotic and lazy. Autohotkey lets you remap the arrows to WASD if you are a keyboard player. But, ASD are hardcoded to use for friendly matches. Very, very dumb.

I also think it's kind of funny they made the system requirements so high. This game uses the Unreal Engine to power the menu system. That's why the system requirements are so high.

One really good potential side effect though: this is still an emulator. The ROMs are in the game folder. Someone could theoretically mod MAME to use these ROMs. Then, you actually could buy the game and use MAME to play it.

Can you play it with an Xbox 360 controller?

If I owned one, I guess I could. Although I would never want to. IMO they are quite terrible for 2d fighters.
