Question about the title

Isn't the game called "Mortal Kombat HD Arcade Kollection" (missing "Arcade")

Yeah,it is and bub you forgot your signature (Hangingmanpeter0 09:19, November 2, 2010 (UTC))

This hoax part should be removed because the "mortal kombat arcade kollection" now exists on xbox live and soon psn network too

A Hoax?

Am I the only person that thinks this game should not be listed on this wiki? It's clearly not real. There has been no mention of it anywhere and there is no evidence to support that this game is in fact real. Does anyone seriously believe that a game developer is going to spend money casting and reimaging THREE Mortal Kombat games? MK1 & 2 are already on XBOX360 and PlayStation 2 and UMK3 is on XBOX360 so realisticly, this project doesn't seem too likely.

Let's wait and see,everybody thought MKvsDC was a hoax,but it isn't so let's see where this leads us(Hangingmanpeter0 05:41, January 7, 2011 (UTC))

Who thought MKvsDC was a hoax? Certianly not I. Why? Becuase it was official from the developers. There has been nothing offical about this game. Or even who's developing it. Which should be the most suspicous of all. Wasn't this game supposed to be released Fall 2010? With Mortal Kombat 2011 releasing in three months, this is highly unlikely. Who made this page based on a rumor anyway? Phillybreezy 06:55, January 7, 2011 (UTC) LOL!!!!! :( Damn wb games!! They canceled a good game :/ Megalame. Fran Viera 501,January 7, 2011(BTC)

Untill Ed, or somebody from warner brothers, says something this page shall stay here.(Hangingmanpeter0 08:32, January 7, 2011 (UTC))

Well Ed never confirmed it in the first place. Anyway, I've dug though a ton of crap to find that it was in fact cancelled. Please do not remove verified facts from the wiki page. Don't omit facts just because you want this game to exist. Get with the program. Phillybreezy 09:14, January 7, 2011 (UTC)

You need lessons on respect,you don't wanna catch me on a bad day you remind me of some snob,I met on IGN. By the way IGN, can make mistakes.(Hangingmanpeter0 09:27, January 7, 2011 (UTC))

And so can you... anyone can talk big behind a computer. Get it together- Phillybreezy 09:43, January 7, 2011 (UTC)

Like I said,till Ed Boon says anything I'm not gonna bother with an disrespectful user such as you, I'm sure the other guys with agree, that this page stays till we get an (OPINION) from Boon, or somebody else, who isn't IGN,that thing isn't an fact without a source,which it doesn't have.(Hangingmanpeter0 09:46, January 7, 2011 (UTC))

Okay, I'm going to be getting more involved with this debate in the morning (it's really late in my time zone). However, consider this a warning: stop the arguing! If you two want to continue this debate, that's fine: but be respectful. Any name calling or disrespect will not be tolerated. There will be no "all caps". There will be no more referring to one another as "snobs", or accusing one another of "talking big". This is a legitimate issue, and you will work it out respectfully. Show the world that just because we're fans of a violent video game, that it doesn't mean we resort to fighting before exhausting diplomacy. Okay? CavalierTunestalk 09:51, January 7, 2011 (UTC)
Thank you for coming to stop my rant,I needed that,till then IGN isn't right all the time they got the second Kingdom Hearts game's date of release wrong,so like an wiki people make mistakes.(Hangingmanpeter0 09:56, January 7, 2011 (UTC))
As of right now IGN is the only legitimite source for this information (everyone makes mistakes). There is nothing official anywhere that this game exists so I'm not even sure how this page got created. Nowhere in what I wrote was disrepectful. I simply stated that there are no facts to this issue. Apparently, this all got started from one website, TRMK. And they don't even have a source. Phillybreezy 10:24, January 7, 2011 (UTC)
Well at least wait until we hear something. Like, for example, from the MK-krew themselves. CrashBash 10:51, January 7, 2011 (UTC)
Then by that logic, this page shouldn't exist. But it's still here, and you keep erasing the facts. What is wrong with you people? You deny a clear fact but opt to keep the page based on a rumor with nothing justifiable behind it. Phillybreezy 10:55, January 7, 2011 (UTC)
Yet you're the one who's trying to "bypass" the argument. You're doing a "Ddill", and trying to confirm what cannot be confirmed yet. In my views, whenever there is argument, it should be reverted to the edit BEFORE it started, and changed only once the argument has been sorted. That's what I'm doing. IGN are not Netherrealm. CrashBash 11:42, January 7, 2011 (UTC)
Alternatively, if it IS a hoax, there's no need to say it's been cancelled...after all, you can't cancel what doesn't exist. So I think we should wait until someone from Netherrealm tells us something...not IGN. CrashBash 11:53, January 7, 2011 (UTC)
I speculated it was a hoax until I tried to dig up information on it. And I came across the game on IGN. It's clear that you're obivously not that smart-- Netherreealm never confirmed the game to begin with and you can not admit that fact (first). Then you keep denying information that's right in your face, that the game may have existed, but has been cancelled. Ergo, your argument is a complete non sequitur (bottom line). Trying to defend something you can not prove. It's quite pathetic. I'm simply sharing a fact that I found and you can not wrap your brain around that for some reason. Pathetic. Phillybreezy 12:17, January 7, 2011 (UTC)
Yes, you are, but lets not dodge the issue. You're clearly not listening to a word three seperate wikia users are of which is an admin. I already explained my reasons for reverting the edits....several times. You're just trying to end the argument in an "I know everything" sort of way, the sort of behaviour that got Ddill banned. I don't want that to happen again. So, we get something sorted first and make sure we KNOW what we're talking about. And don't act all superior, please. That'll only get you in trouble. CrashBash 17:03, January 7, 2011 (UTC)
Well just wanted to add a source that maybe will solve somewhat of this issue at hand so check out this site.
You can say this doesn't prove anything but still it is worth checking out. Soul eater111 16:36, January 7, 2011 (UTC)
You know, I don't really wanna get involved with this, otherwise I'll just throw another tantrum. I hope this gets sorted out somehow, in a mature way. CrashBash 17:29, January 7, 2011 (UTC)
But somehow you inserted yourself into this. Throwing tantrums? Grow up! What are you five? I'm over this and you-- I'll leave you to frolic in the stupidity you've seemed to surround yourself with. Phillybreezy 21:28, January 7, 2011 (UTC)

"noobde noobde One reason our designers wanted the tournament sticks with the klassic layout was cuz of the re-release of MK1,2,3!"

Sounds to me like the "re-release" would be this Arcade Kollection. --Azeruth 17:58, May 12, 2011 (UTC)


After reading over the debate and looking up as much as I can about the proposed game, Mortal Kombat HD Arcade Kollection, I've noticed the following things:

  • I can't seem to find any evidence of anyone from the MK-team confirming (or even mentioning) MKHD. Although a few websites have listed it as something analogous to "in development" (such as GameSpot, GAME, TRMK, and even IGN at one point), neither NetherЯealm Studios, WB Games, nor any employes of either have even mentioned (much less confirmed) MKHD.
  • The game was initially going to be released around November 18, 2010 – a date that's almost two months past. This makes it seem like the game either never existed or was cancelled.
  • The description given by TRMK – specifically the sections hinting that recasting and reshooting may occur – made me think of the newer version of Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 that was just released for the iPhone OS. In that, all of the characters that were initially in 2D have been rendered into 3D. It is possible that this was what was confused for the proposed MKHD.
  • I recognize the fact that IGN doesn't exactly have a perfect track-record when it comes to accuracy – although, neither does TRMK.

I now believe that the game has either been cancelled, was never intended to be released, or was a version that eventually developed into the iPhone version of UMK3.

I propose that the Mortal Kombat HD Kollection article be reworked to reflect any consensus that can be made here, on this talk page. If no consensus can be made, then I propose that the article be reworked to reflect this new controversy.

I will be monitoring this talk page for the next few days, and I encourage anyone who is interested to debate respectfully. If there is any name-calling, "all-caps" behavior, or anything rude or disrespectful the guilty party(s) will receive a 3-day "cool-down" ban.

Assuming what I proposed is acceptable: if a consensus can be reached, then there shouldn't be any problem rewriting the article to reflect that consensus. If, after a few days, no consensus is reached, then I will rewrite the article myself reflecting the controversy. However, if there is someone who disagrees with my proposed course of action: please let me know – I do not wish to force my opinion on the website, I wish to be fair. CavalierTunestalk 22:27, January 7, 2011 (UTC)

Well, all I did was make a section at the bottom of the article and stated that IGN has reported the game as cancelled amd included the link (after I researched it because I did believe the whole thing was a hoax). Afterwards, two users edited the page and deleted what I shared. That's where most of the arguement is coming. Those two users for some reason can't accept the fate of the game and continue to omit facts from the page. I also stated that they should find facts to support what they were trying to justify. You can go to the page and see the edit I made. It was clear, concise and had a source to back it up. Phillybreezy 22:53, January 7, 2011 (UTC)

Now you know why I left,I'm trying not to get banned.(Hangingmanpeter0 22:56, January 7, 2011 (UTC))

Just be polite and no one needs to worry about being banned. And Phillybreezy don't assume the intentions of others. CrashBash, a very experienced and knowledgable user here, was likely simply undoing your edit because, in regards to wiki policy, you're not allowed to edit a page that's currently under debate until the debate has been settled. And, Hangingmanpeter0 was likely concerned with the veracity of [ IGN], as expressed in his previous posts. It's fair that you think the whole thing was hoax, but don't assume the worst of your fellow user. CavalierTunestalk 23:59, January 7, 2011 (UTC)
I think the game will come out this month or next month,but since my PS3 is dead I'm gonna miss the chance to play it T.T(Hangingmanpeter0 05:11, January 9, 2011 (UTC))
I hope you're right – but, as of right now, there's doubt over whether the game even exists. I hope it does. CavalierTunestalk 05:16, January 9, 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, MK9 is just three months away.(Hangingmanpeter0 06:05, January 9, 2011 (UTC))

It's just as real as my PS3. --ByakuyaTALK 19:41, May 12, 2011 (UTC)
