The History of Mortal Kombat (Part 1)

with one comment

This week Fred and Jam are heading all the way back to 1992 when an intended Street Fighter II clone starring Jean-Claude Van Damme resulted in one of the most violent and popular fighters of all time.  In this episode we delve into the history, development, release, home console releases, and of course inevitable violence discussions spawned from the first title and it’s inevitable sequel.

This is part 1 of a multi-part series on the franchise.

  1. I don’t know about America, but in Australia Mortal Kombat CD on the Mega CD has blood & fatalities enabled by default.
    The DULLARD menu still existed for doing other things.
