Mortal Kombat II hits PS3 next month

Midway's arcade brawler to be available for download from Sony's PlayStation with a $4.99 asking price.


Last month, Sony Online Entertainment said it would bring a half-dozen Midway arcade classics to the PlayStation 3, and it appears the first of those will arrive next month. Sony's now lists the bloody brawler Mortal Kombat II as a March release, with a $4.99 price attached.

The game brings together the original game's roster of a dozen fighters and their respective finishing moves, and is updated with online multiplayer support. The site also claims players will be able to "battle all of your favorite bosses such as Goro or Shang Tsung…" However, the four-armed Goro did not appear in the arcade version of Mortal Kombat II, having been replaced by a similar creature called Kintaro. As of press time, an SOE representative had not answered GameSpot's request for comment.

The remaining five games named in the Midway-SOE deal are Gauntlet II, Joust, Rampage World Tour, Rampart, and Championship Sprint. SOE has said that all of them will have online multiplayer included in them for their PS3 releases.
