What is Mortal Kombat?
Mortal Kombat is a fighting game that was released in 1992. It is the first entry in the Mortal Kombat series and was created by Ed Boon and John Tobias. The game was originally released on arcades and later ported to home consoles.
The game Mortal Kombat has spawned numerous sequels and has had a lasting effect on pop culture. The game is known for its graphic violence, which led to the creation of the ESRB rating system for video games. Mortal Kombat is also credited with popularizing the use of secret character codes.
The History of Mortal Kombat
Mortal Kombat is a fighting video game franchise that was created by Midway Games in 1992. The franchise has since spawned numerous sequels, films, television series, comic books and other merchandise. The games feature a large cast of characters that players can choose to fight as, each with their own special moves and Fatalities.
The first Mortal Kombat game was released in arcades in 1992 and was an instant hit with gamers. It featured realistic digitized sprites of actors and martial artists that fought against each other in a tournament setting. The game’s popularity led to a successful home release on consoles and spawned a series of sequels.
Mortal Kombat II (1993) added more characters and improved upon the game’s mechanics. It also introduced the now iconic Fatality move, which allows players to gruesomely finish off their opponents. Mortal Kombat II was followed by Mortal Kombat 3 (1995), which further refined the gameplay and added more characters.
The Mortal Kombat franchise took a brief hiatus after Mortal Kombat 3, but returned in 1999 with Mortal Kombat 4. This game introduced 3D graphics to the series and updated the roster of playable characters. Mortal Kombat 4 was followed by Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance (2002), which introduced an all-new fighting system centered around two-on-two combat.
Mortal Kombat: Armageddon (2006) marked the return of some fan-favorite characters and introduced a new mode called Konquest, which told the story of the series’ protagonist, Liu Kang. The most recent entry in the series is Mortal Kombat X (2015), which introduces a new generation of fighters while still retaining some of the classic characters from previous games.
