He would have his Shadow Priests, led by Shang Tsung, revive his former Queen Sindel, who unexpectedly died at a young age. However, she wouldn't be revived in the Outworld. She would be resurrected in the Earth Realm. This would allow Shao Kahn to cross the boundary lines and reclaim his queen.

Forget that you ever saw the horrible Mortal Kombat movies and stick to the impressions that the video games created if you want to take this superb series seriously. MK-3 was the last of sprite based games of its series but the action remained fluid and dynamic as ever. The animation was great and the sketches in the manual were something that every MK fan should preserve. The length of the game itself and the number of opponents depends on the skill or difficulty level that you select. Problem is that even on normal difficulty, one could breeze through most opponents by merely throwing upper cuts and only during the very end did it get difficult.
