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 dreamian

Alternate Versions

The Sega Genesis version has a hidden finishing move that does not appear on any other platform of the game. Via a cheat menu, Rayden players on the armory stage can turn a defeated opponent into a small guy in a cheesy tuxedo, and the game calls this a "Fergality". This cheat menu also turns on a different "Toasty" face and accesses a hidden Blue Portal stage. See more »

User Reviews

A great improvement
11 November 1999 | by Kai-18See all my reviews

This game improves on some of the problems of the original: the characters and fighting stages were kinda bland in those games, but here the original characters look more colourful (Liu Kang, Tsang Shung) and the new character look great (Baraka, Mileena). The backgrounds are now better and bizarre, unlike the bland ones in the original. A truly fun (though disturbing) game.
