As announced previously, Mortal Kombat II is coming to the Sony Playstation 3 via their Playstation Network's download service. According to Sony's website, MKII's release date has been firmed as March 2007, with a sale price of $4.99 USD. The game (as reported at our Gamers Day coverage) is an almost-flawless emulation of the original arcade game, and will also feature online multiplayer. From the Station page:

Get Over Here! Come relive all the fatalities that made Mortal Kombat II® a beloved classic. Brought back and available for download exclusively on the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system, play as 1 of 12 characters as you venture through realms, such as The Dead Pool, Kombat Tomb or Kahn's Lair. Battle all of your favorite bosses such as Goro or Shang Tsung and unlock hidden characters including Noob Saibot. Decide your enemies' fate with 3 different special endings and prepare to Finish Him!

While the page says "Goro", we believe that this is a typo and that they actually refer to Kintaro, the Shokan that appeared in that game. We'll be keeping an eye on this game; as soon as it is released, we'll be sure to announce it here!
