Midway Games Inc. (NYSE: MWY), a leading interactive entertainment industry publisher and developer, has shipped Mortal Kombat®: Kollection™ to retail stores. MKK is a special collector's edition box set combining three recent Mortal Kombat titles from Midway's award winning video game fighting franchise into one explosive package.
Mortal Kombat is one of the most prolific franchises in videogame history that has captured fans with a distinct vision of visceral combat since 1992. The series has become one of the best-selling videogame franchises of all time, with more than 26 million units sold worldwide. As a bridge between Mortal Kombat's illustrious past and the series' imminent leap to next-generation consoles - with Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe - the release of Mortal Kombat: Kollection offers a compelling anthology for fans and new players alike.
Packing more punch, fatalities and characters into one box than ever before, Mortal Kombat: Kollection features Mortal Kombat: Deception®, Mortal Kombat: Armageddon®, and Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks® and is expected to be available for a U.S. MSRP of $29.99 exclusively for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system.
"Mortal Kombat has become a household name thanks to the millions of dedicated fans across the world," said Miguel Iribarren, senior vice president - publishing, Midway. "With the PlayStation®2 still holding the highest market share of any home console, this Kollection allows fans and collectors of the series to play three recent titles for one low price as we ramp up for the highly anticipated launch of Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe."
About Mortal Kombat: Deception
With an innovative fighting system, arena death-traps, and two fatalities per character, Mortal Kombat: Deception was voted Best Fighting game of 2004 by the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences and Gamespot.com. Also included are Puzzle Kombat, an addictive "MK-style" puzzle game, Chess Kombat and the single player Konquest adventure mode. The first MK game with online play, Mortal Kombat: Deception proved to be one of the pivotal entries in the series.
About Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks
Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks is an Action/Adventure title driven by intense single- and multi-player gameplay that is set in the period between the franchise's original title, Mortal Kombat, and Mortal Kombat II. As in Mortal Kombat: Deception, background interactions, multiple fatalities, and action-based puzzles play an important role in the player's quest for an "outstanding" victory as they maneuver through remodeled, classic Mortal Kombat environments. In franchise tradition, Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks also features an impressive line-up of well-known characters that make frequent appearances as enemies, in boss battles and during several additional in-game interactions.
About Mortal Kombat: Armageddon
Winner of the 2006 "PS2 Fighting Game of the Year" from IGN, Mortal Kombat: Armageddon is the latest chapter in Midway's best-selling video game fighting franchise. With a roster of more than 60 characters as well as the ability for players to create their own fighters and take them online, Armageddon is the most complete Mortal Kombat game to date. Adding in the ability for players to create their own fatalities, the brand new Konquest Adventure mode and the "MK-style" Kart racing game called Motor Kombat round out the biggest Mortal Kombat game ever.
