Mortal Kombat Trilogy Was Once Going to Get a New Remaster

Blind Squirrel Games was apparently doing the port, but it’s been nixed.

With Mortal Kombat 11 getting close, it’s interesting to think to the long-running series’ past. Unfortunately, there’s not a lot of access to it at this point. While in the past the original titles have seen re-release, the most recent being the Mortal Kombat Arcade Collection for PS3 and 360, which featured the original trilogy, the series has largely not seen many re-releases beyond that (any games post MK3 have seen no HD remasters for current hardware or PC). That was going to change at one point, because it seems Blind Squirrel Games was working on a remastering of the original trilogy.

Concept and UI artist Danny Huynh recently updated some art of the nixed collection to his Art Station and identified the game simply as Mortal Kombat Remastered that would have featured new remasters of the original trilogy (it was renamed from Mortal Kombat Kollection at some point). He’s since deleted his screens, as well as what he said about the game, but DSO Gaming have archived it all.

Nothing was said about platforms, but from the screens we can see they had plans for a Krypt feature, as well as an XP system of some kind. It’s interesting to think what could have been, checking out the gallery below. We may not be able to look to game’s past, but the future is almost here, with Mortal Kombat 11 releasing April 23rd for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC.
