Mortal Kombat is a fighting video game developed by NetherRealm Studios with published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Midway Games. Released for the Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 2, Dreamcast and GameCube on April 22, 2000 with Game Boy Advance.

The Latest version of the game included new characters above God of the Arena, featuring Ultimate Mortal Kombat, revealed on October 8, 2000.

Story Edit

500 years ago, the annual Shaolin Tournament, long the most prestigious fighting tournament in the world, was interrupted by the appearance of an old sorcerer and a strange four-armed creature, who entered the tournament and defeated the Great Kung Lao. This Shokan warrior was the half-human, half-dragon fighter named Goro, and he became the ultimate fighting champion for the next five hundred years.

Gameplay and Features Edit

Principal gameplay involves one-on-one 3D style fighting. Mortal Kombat uses a single two-dimensional fighting plane (at 60 frames per second), although characters are rendered in three-dimensional fashion, intended to give depth and range to portrayals of various projectiles. Through the 2000s, the developer by NetherRealm Studios and publisher by Midway Games would keep their single styled fighting moves with four attack buttons for a different array of punches and kicks and blocks.

A defining and best-known feature of the series is its finishing move system called Fatality. An original idea behind it was to give gamers a free hit at the end of the fight. The basic Fatalities are finishing moves that allow the victorious characters to end a match in a special way by murdering their defeated, defenseless opponents in a gruesome manner, usually in the predefined ways exclusive for the given character.
