About a year ago, games publisher, Acclaim, filed for bankruptcy, after the executives loaded the company with loads of debt that eventually ran the company into the ground. A group of trustees sued Acclaim for the company's mismanagement and as a result, the trustees are putting up for auction the publishing rights to over 200 videogame titles.

Amongst these titles are a numerous number of Midway arcade home conversions, as Midway at the time did not have a home console publishing division. Included in the auction are the rights for games like WWF WrestleMania Arcade, Revolution X, the NBA Jam series, Super High Impact and more. But most importantly, Mortal Kombat and Mortal Kombat II are amongst the list of rights up for bid. Although Mortal Kombat and Mortal Kombat II both have been released in previous Midway, those games were arcade code emulation, not the code that was created for the SNES, Genesis and PC versions Acclaim had published in the past.
