Following his defeat, Shang Tsung begs his master, Shao Kahn, to spare his life. He tells Shao Kahn that the invitation for Mortal Kombat cannot be turned down, and if they hold it in Outworld, the Earthrealm warriors must attend. Kahn agrees to this plan, and restores Tsung's youth. He extends the invitation to Raiden, who gathers his warriors and takes them into Outworld. The tournament is dangerous, as Shao Kahn has the home field advantage, and an Outworld victory will unbalance the furies and allow Outworld to subsume Earthrealm. Written by
Mortal Kombat has finally met its match
Did You Know?
When the first Mortal Kombat was released on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, Nintendo, who had a family acceptability policy that included the prohibition of graphic depictions of death and excessive violence in games released on its systems, asked for the gore from that game to be removed and to tone down the more gruesome fatalities. Consequently that version sold poorly. As a result, Nintendo finally agreed to capitulate on those guidelines for Mortal Kombat II and allowed all the original gore and fatalities to appear in the US and UK SNES versions (the Japanese version was censored, such as having green blood), but still put a warning on the box. The SNES version was considered to be the best home version available and its sales reflected that. See more
