Rumor: Prince Of Persia, Mortal Kombat Remakes For Europe
Collections, remakes and reboots are big these days. But a couple new collections might only be exclusive to the European region...
According to a Euro source citing Jeuxvideo, our gaming buddies across the pond will receive two sets of remakes in only a few months time: a Prince of Persia trilogy remastered for 3D compatibility and a Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection, remade in high-definition. The PoP set is supposedly set to arrive on November 4 and the MK remakes are going to show up on November 18, if the information is correct. Now, we've heard whispers of the PoP Collection before but as of yet, Ubisoft hasn't made an official announcement. There is the possibility that both collections in question will remain exclusive to Europe, although we're certain there are plenty of PoP and MK fans here in the US. But it is interesting to note that the advent of 3D gaming gives game makers another reason to re-release older titles; more remakes in the future might boast both HD and 3D, like the upcoming ICO & Shadow of the Colossus Collection. By the way, those three PoP entries from the PS2 era - Sands of Time, Warrior Within, and The Two Thrones - are well worth revisiting in our eyes.
We'll let you know if either of these collections becomes official in the coming weeks, and if North American gamers can expect some love.
