Mortal Kombat Kollection Online may not be cancelled after all

A collection of the first three old school Mortal Kombat games has turned up on the PEGI age rating website, even though it’s supposed to be cancelled.

Age rating boards around the world are constantly leaking game information they shouldn’t, but it’s rarely the European PEGI system which is at fault.

However, for a brief time they were listing Mortal Kombat Kollection Online, which was supposed to have been cancelled last year.

Website Gematsu was able to take a screenshot before the information was taken down, although whether its rapid removal makes it more likely to be a leak or a mistake is hard to say.

The release date was down as 21 January, which obviously isn’t true, but the fact that they gave it an age rating (of 18, naturally) implies that PEGI officials saw the game in action and were able to assess it.

Mortal Kombat Kollection Online definitely did exist at one point, when it was being worked on by Blind Squirrel Games, who have been behind other remasters such as BioShock: The Collection and Borderlands: Game Of The Year Edition.

According to dsogaming.com Mortal Kombat Kollection Online was cancelled in April 2019 but would’ve included remasters of the first three arcade games in a new, modern package.

Why it was cancelled was never made clear, and there seems no particular reason why it should remerge now as there are no obvious anniversaries coming up and no new games to promote.

Blind Squirrel did get pretty far with the game though, as they showed a few screenshots of their work so far, so hopefully it will make it to release after all.
