Nearly two weeks ago, we posted a news story about the existence of a game called Mortal Kombat Kollection. Almost nothing was known about the game other than it was only listed on GameStop as coming out for the Playstation 2. Today, Midway let the cat out of the bag by issuing a press release officially announcing Mortal Kombat Kollection as a Playstation 2 exclusive. The game is in fact a box set that contains Mortal Kombat: Deception, Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks, and Mortal Kombat: Armageddon. Noticably absent from the list of games is Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance, which was the first of the last generation of MK games. From the press release:

Exclusively for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, Mortal Kombat: Kollection features Mortal Kombat: Deception®, Mortal Kombat: Armageddon®, and Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks®. Packing more punch, fatalities and characters into one box than e ver before, Mortal Kombat: Kollection is expected to be available this September for a U.S. MSRP of $29.99, just in time for players to refine their skills before the scheduled release of the highly anticipated Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe this holiday season.

"Mortal Kombat has been a pinnacle fighting franchise for well over a decade now and this is an ideal package for fans and collectors in terms of content and price point," said Mona Hamilton, vice president of marketing, Midway Home Entertainment. "With the PlayStation®2 still holding the highest market share of any home console, we saw this as the perfect opportunity to offer an incredible value to our consumers as we ramp up for the highly anticipated launch of Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe."

We'll keep an eye on this game as it nears release. As we learn more (and plan to find out why MK:DA was not included), we'll be sure to report it here.
