Mortal Kombat: Legacy

Mortal Kombat was followed by the sequel Mortal Kombat X in Principal gameplay involves one-on-one 2. Mortal Kombat uses a single two-dimensional fighting plane at 60 frames per second , [5] [6] although characters are rendered in three-dimensional fashion , [7] intended to give depth and range to portrayals of various projectiles. A new feature is the "super meter", which can be charged by various actions during battle such as performing special moves, getting blocked by the opponent, or getting hit by them.

At the first level, it can be used to deliver an enhanced version of one of the character's special attacks; two levels can be used to interrupt a combo attack, and the full three levels allow for the delivery of a special attack called an "X-ray move". The X-ray move unleashes a series of attacks during which the game provides an internal view of the character being attacked, which shows their bones and organs being broken or ruptured.

Extra features include a story mode during which the player plays as multiple characters, [10] a Fatality training mode allowing players to practice executing finishing moves , [11] the Challenge Tower, tag team fighting, and an online mode.

The Challenge Tower mode is a single-player option that includes specific challenges of various difficulties providing currency rewards upon completion; players have the option of using in-game currency to bypass other difficult challenges, completing them later.

The four-player tag-team feature is an original feature, allowing two players to play together. The first of them is the "tag assist" attack, in which the off-screen character temporarily jumps in and performs certain attacks during the active character's combo.

The other is the "tag kombo", in which the active character performs a combo that is finished by the off-screen character as they enter the fight. The online mode includes a "King of the Hill" option, where up to eight players can act as spectators and play the winner of a fight. Spectators may also rate the fights and use the "forum" to determine how to perform various combos or moves observed during a fight. The Raiden from Mortal Kombat 1 then gets the message and experiences a premonition.

The game then spans Mortal Kombat 1 , 2 , and 3 , retelling the story with an enlightened Raiden, who has changed the course of events. Eventually, everything the player has seen happen before — Liu Kang winning, Lin Kuei turning into cybernetic ninjas, has been altered. You might see a cybernetic character who wasn't before, and a different version of events. Following the death of Blaze by Shao Kahn , all warriors from the realms have been destroyed, leaving only Raiden and Outworld emperor Shao Kahn remaining.

A mortally wounded Raiden, about to be killed by Shao Kahn, sends a message to his past self through his amulet, with the vague message "He must win. During the events of the first tournament, Raiden sees visions of the future due to the message he received. Raiden concludes that Liu Kang must win the tournament to save Earthrealm. During the tournament, Liu Kang becomes the only remaining Earthrealm contender, due in part to Scorpion 's murder of Bi-Han, in retaliation for the latter's massacre of the Shirai Ryu clan some years earlier.

Raiden's amulet, however, cracks, a sign that future events are unchanged. Disappointed with the sorcerer's failure, emperor Shao Kahn orders Shang Tsung's execution, but is convinced otherwise when the sorcerer suggests holding the second tournament in Outworld.

Though initially refusing, Raiden relents when tarkatans invade Earthrealm as part of Shang Tsung's blackmail against Earthrealm. During the second tournament, Kuai Liang , the younger brother of Bi-Han, the original Sub-Zero, and Smoke arrive to avenge his brother. They are followed by Lin Kuei cyber assassins Sektor and Cyrax who are tasked with retrieving the rogue ninjas for cybernetic conversion.

Raiden changes the timeline by rescuing Smoke, at the cost of Kuai Liang being taken away. Kitana , a long time servant of Shao Kahn, is compelled to join Earthrealm's fight after learning of the existence of her clone Mileena , created by Shang Tsung on Shao Kahn's orders, with Jade , Kitana's childhood friend, joining her later.

Kung Lao is subsequently killed with Liu Kang retaliating and mortally wounding the emperor in a fit of rage. Raiden's amulet continues to deteroriate and he becomes increasingly concerned. Shao Kahn is healed by sorcerer Quan Chi of the Netherrealm, at which point, the two realms enter into an alliance. Quan Chi also revives Shao Kahn's wife, Sindel.

In doing so, the ward that prevents Kahn's access to Earthrealm is nullified and a full-scale invasion is authorized. Raiden saves Johnny Cage from certain death by slaying the centaurian Motaro , and, joined by Earthrealm fighters Stryker and Kabal , attempt to stop Kahn's invasion.

In the battle, many are killed by Sindel, and Kitana is brutally beaten. Before Sindel can kill her, Nightwolf intervenes and sacrifices himself in order to kill her. Liu Kang, angered by the death of their allies, blames Raiden and goes to attack Shao Kahn. Raiden tries to stop Liu Kang, but ends up accidentally killing him with an energy blast.

Overcome with guilt, Raiden surrenders to Shao Kahn, at which point, the Elder Gods intervene, imbuing him with their power, which he then uses to defeat Shao Kahn for violating the Mortal Kombat code. Quan Chi, now shown to be an agent of Shinnok , reveals that the destruction of Shao Kahn and the weakening of Earthrealm by the death of their fighters was part of their plan to conquer all the realms for their own bidding. DC Universe would dictate what features would appear in "the next game".

Mortal Kombat was officially revealed on June 10, with a release for the Xbox and PlayStation 3 in Mortal Kombat runs on a heavily modified version of the Unreal Engine 3 , similar to the engine used by its predecessor, Mortal Kombat vs.

According to Dave Pindara, one of lead artists for Mortal Kombat , environments were developed to create active objects and effects such as "scripted cinema events", "dynamic lighting effects" and "characters and objects that animated and reacted to the fights.

Sound effect design included use and enhancement of the "bone-crunching audio design" of previous titles and, while the "dynamic experience" was vital, small details such as the "rustling of fighter's clothes" and background sounds were also included. Music for each stage was similar to previous games but with "a completely new arrangement". Boon said that there was a focus on including characters from the first three Mortal Kombat games and that "if you have a favorite character from those games, you're probably going to see him or her in the game.
