Mortal Kombat Trilogy remaster may be happening, according to ratings board listing

By Sam Quirke,
If you've been enjoying wading through the viscera of your enemies in your hunt for Mortal Kombat 11 achievements, but you're pining for the good old days of the mid 90s, there may be some good news – a remastered collection of the original Mortal Kombat trilogy might be on the way according to a PEGI rating. (For those across the pond, PEGI is the European board for rating video games.)

Mortal Kombat Kollection

There's no way to expand the text on the PEGI rating page unfortunately, but here's the visible text in full:

"Mortal Kombat Kollection Online is the original Mortal Kombat trilogy that MK fans have always wanted. Upgraded art, gameplay and online features provide an incredible experience that revive the "klassics"..."

The fact that Online is featured in the title suggests that the big marketing push will be the fact that these classic local multiplayer games will have online competitive multiplayer. It also suggests that this is a significant overhaul rather than a quick HD porting job. In early 2019, Dark Side of Gaming grabbed a bunch of images of the cancelled project from Danny Huynh, Concept and UI Artist at Blind Squirrel Games – the studio originally working on the project. Here's the kicker – as of mid 2019, Huynh officially joined NetherRealm Studios as a UI artist. It's possible that the project and some of its talent has been snapped up by the main Mortal Kombat developer, following on from the success and hype for Mortal Kombat 11.

Here are those screens from the original project:
