The Mortal Kombat fighting games are huge pop-culture phenomena. While Capcom’s Street Fighter series helped lay the foundation of the fighting games during the golden age of Arcade Games, it was Mortal Kombat that showed the world a violent take on the genre.
With the series celebrating its 30th anniversary, GOG, CD Projekt RED’s classic game distribution platform, took it upon themselves to bring the first three games back.
The Mortal Kombat Trilogy is the newest addition to GOG’s ever-growing library of old, classic games. This release highlights the 30th anniversary of the series in 1992 and is the latest entry under their Good Old Games initiative.
The trilogy, released by Midway in 1996, is the final update to Mortal Kombat 3. It features characters and stages from the first and second games. Additionally, the release also had the “Aggressor” bar and new finishers. For this re-release, the GOG team and Warner Bros worked together to make it accessible on modern platforms.
MK Trilogy is only exclusively available on GOG, joining Mortal Kombat 1+2+3 and Mortal Kombat 4. People interested in purchasing the title can do so for $8.99. After the discount period, the game will cost $9.99.
