The past few days more evidence of the upcoming Mortal Kombat HD Arcade Kollection
has surfaced. First the major UK Retailer Game
has listed the game for pre-order
. Game doesn't offer many details beyond a release date of 11/2010
which is similar to the previous European leaks.
Yesterday we got our first US retailer leak. A reader, Lucas
, reached out to let us know that US retail distributor Ingram Entertainment
now has the game listed for pre-booking. Pre-booking is basically what a store does to place advance orders for their customers. Here's a screenshot of the game's listing in the system:
What is not pictured is the release date of November 17th
in the system. Oddly enough that is a Wednesday not a Tuesday. Also as with with the other leaks there is no indication of a Xbox 360
version of this game. We think it's likely going to be released as a Sony PlayStation 3 HD Collections title
. We don't expect it to be 100% exclusive to the PlayStation 3
, but rather we'd bet that that a lack of Xbox 360 leaks point towards it being a timed exclusive
where the game eventually gets released for the Xbox 360 after a period of time. We don't think they'd exclude all potential Xbox 360 customers, especially after having lost the ability to purchase Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3
on Xbox Live Arcade
With the unconfirmed release date being only two months away, we bet an official announcement is not far off.
