Mortal Kombat, the classic arcade fighter game, began development in 1991 for release in 1992. Often compared to other rival game series, the developers at Midway sought to set Mortal Kombat apart in every way. Though often noted for its gruesome finishing moves known as 'Fatalities' and its borderline-comedic approach to gore, many fans enjoy the franchise for its commitment to the storyline, concerning the ongoing battle for domination of the six realms. The fighting system also offers a uniquely different gameplay experience, requiring different strategies and approaches to combination moves, or 'combos', to win a round.

From the first few titles available in-arcade only through the early nineties, to eleven mainline games and multiple spin-offs, as well as animation and live-action media, the appetite for Mortal Kombat content seems unquenchable. Throughout the franchise's development it has remained committed to exploring the characters and rivalries of the six realms, and to the most gruesome fatalities imaginable, keeping fans coming back time and time again. The game's character roster is also impressive, with more than seventy unique characters from across the six realms to play or verse, each with its own moveset and stunning match-ending fatality.

To this day Mortal Kombat continues to grow, with the next mainline game of the series Mortal Kombat 1 announced in celebration of the franchise's 30th anniversary, exploring unexpected twists on classic rivalries and original backstories. With more than 79 million Mortal Kombat games sold across the globe since 1992, more and more fans are discovering its unique fighting style and delighting in its complex storyline and satisfying fatalities every day. Why not discover it for yourself?
