The mystic Shujinko is tasked with retrieving the Kamidogu, treasures hidden within the various realms of existence by the Elder Gods. To accomplish this task, Shunjinko traverses all the realms, from his native Earth Realm to the hellish Netherealm, while tutored by the grand masters of Mortal Kombat. However, once Shujinko accomplishes his task, he discovers that he has been a pawn in a plot to restore the evil Dragon King, Onaga, from the dead. With Onaga restored to full strength, the champions of Mortal Kombat must stop him from altering the very fabric of existence. Written by Ronos

Did You Know?


Many of the people in the Netherrealm and the Chaosrealm that sounds like their talking gibberish are actually speaking backwards, in fact the actual spoken quote for each person does not match what is being said, Examples of what some of these characters are saying include (but not limited to):
  • "There are many Realms,"

  • "I am talking backwards, spooky isn't it,"

  • "Parents of the world, There is no satanic messages hidden within the backward speech of Mortal Kombat,"

  • "Play Mortal Kombat with a friend in Vietnam" (A Reference to The Cable Guy (1996))" "If you can decode this then you have way too much time on your hands"

Nostalgia is good
21 October 2004 | by (North Carolina) – See all my reviews

In this case nostalgia is good. Old MK characters return and stage fatalities return. Konquest in this game is an RPG like adventure with the main character named Shujinko. Konquest does have some terrible voice acting in spots, but not everyone is bad. Midway has got the right idea with Konquest. It just needs to be fleshed out more. Shujinko's controls are slightly stiff when it comes to moving.

Most of the stories are good when you beat arcade mode. There is a couple that disappoint.

There is also a new addition to the MK series. Which is Hara Kiris. Its suicide basically. Most of the Hara Kiri's range from cool to bland.

All the characters have their own voices. Which is great and adds more depth to the game in my opinion.

The fighting feels more updated and not so clunky like in Deadly Alliance. There are multi-tiered levels now. There are two fatalities instead of one like in Deadly Alliance. Overall a major improvement over Deadly Alliance.
