Mortal Kombat Kollection Online receives new rating in Europe despite reportedly being canceled last year

Perhaps Quan Chi brought it back?

Debate and rumors surrounding a potential HD remaster of the original Mortal Kombat trilogy have been flying across the internet for a decade or longer now, but a recent development has turned the heads of fans of the klassics.

The Pan European Game Information board recently rated a new title called Mortal Kombat Kollection Online for release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC. The only problem is that remaster was reportedly canceled by Warner Bros. almost a year ago.

Mortal Kombat Kollection Online is described in the PEGI rating, which has since been taken down though a screenshot has been preserved by Gematsu, as "the original Mortal Kombat trilogy that Mortal Kombat fans always wanted" featuring "upgraded art, gameplay, and online features provide an incredible experience that revive the 'klassics.'"

Blind Squirrel Games is / was reportedly working on the project, who had previously done work on porting / remastering other titles like Borderlands and Bioshock, until it was reported by Dark Side of Gaming that the MK Kollection had been axed as of April 2019.

An alleged concept artist for the Kollection shared some drafts of how the game could have looked including the logo, main menu screen, an original Krypt mode and new renders of Scorpion's fire plus Sub-Zero's ice.

This is not to be confused with the Mortal Kombat: Arcade Kollection which released on the previous generation of consoles back in 2011 featuring minor updates to the original three titles like adding online play.

There's a chance this rating was updated mistakenly, but considering it costs money and resources to get new games officially recognized by these boards, there's a decent chance this project isn't quite dead after all.
