Indie studio Eyeballistic has launched a Change.org petition to urge Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment to greenlight HD remakes of the first three Mortal Kombat games.
As spotted by DSOGaming, the petition aims to resurrect the project that was cancelled back in 2018. Eyeballistic claims that when it approached Ed Boon back in 2016, he was in favor of the remakes and “fully supported” the project, but Warner Bros. was skeptical and didn’t think it would sell over 100,000 units. Eyeballistic thinks that if enough people sign the petition, Warner Bros. might change its stance.
The petition reads:
Eyeballistic has become a legitimate game development group (rather than just a team of talented MK fanatics) and we’ve signed multiple game contracts to produce games for PS5, Xbox Series S/X and Nintendo Switch. We’ve also improved our online rollback tech with some proprietary technology that improves upon GGPO even further for incredibly smooth play across great distances.
We’re planning to painstakingly recreate every detail of every stage and character in glorious 3D. Of course every fatality, brutality, friendship and animality will be there too. The characters and stages will get a face lift to 4K resolution and 60 frames per second gameplay action through the power of Unreal Engine 5. We’ll even remake all of the music by giving it a modern cinematic sound that incorporates real instruments.
If Warner Bros. gives Mortal Kombat Trilogy Remake its blessing, it’ll release on the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Eyeballistic expects it to be priced at $39.99.
