7. Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3’s Abandoned Sequel Bait
Mortal Kombat 3 was finally upgraded into Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, which, amongst different issues, added a complete lot of female and male ninja characters to the roster. However, the endings for the 4 unlockable characters have been sloppy nonsense and felt like they have been written on the final minute. Ermac confirmed up for the sake of showing that he existed. Human Smoke went to coach with Sub-Zero, Scorpion, and Reptile. Classic Sub-Zero shocked everybody by unmasking and revealing…to be continued!
Every one in every of these epilogues ended with a reference to the character returning for the upcoming fourth event. Most fascinating of all was Mileena’s ending, through which she and Baraka kidnapped Kitana and Sindel and held them hostage so they might drive Shao Kahn to lure Earthrealm’s heroes into coming into a event. The implication was that Baraka could be that event’s huge dangerous. Considering Baraka has a popularity for being the collection’ jobber villain, the considered him being the ultimate boss in Mortal Kombat 4 is unusual to consider.
Ultimately, nothing actually got here out of the implication, although. Other than Classic Sub-Zero, all of these endings have been fully overhauled for Mortal Kombat Trilogy and finally made much more sense.
6. Belokk: The Devil You Don’t Know
Mortal Kombat Gold was the Dreamcast unique model of Mortal Kombat 4 that added extra characters to the preliminary roster. All of these characters have been returning heroes and villains, like Kitana, Mileena, Sektor, Baraka, and many others. However, there was a time after we have been going to get a model new character named Belokk, who was seemingly some form of large demon. He didn’t find yourself within the remaining recreation, however a number of photos of him have been despatched by port developer Eurocom to gaming magazines. The pictures confirmed two skins for Belokk (pink and black) and he appeared to have strikes just like Goro.
So what occurred? The rumor is that Eurocom created him themselves and Midway was not eager on the concept of a 3rd occasion introducing a brand new character, particularly in terms of the authorized elements. Ed Boon himself says that the character ended up on the slicing room ground because of lack of time to complete him. Regardless, there are scant references to Belokk – or a minimum of a lacking additional character – within the code.
5. The Kratos Story Mode Cameo
Kratos was a console-exclusive character within the PlayStation 3 model of Mortal Kombat 9. While he got here along with his personal ending, particular stage, and even stage Fatalities, that includes Kratos within the recreation did include some annoying caveats. See, Sony was not eager on Kratos coming off as something however essentially the most badass dude to ever exist, in order that they made NetherRealm Studios alter sure Fatalities when used on Kratos. Kratos might die, however he couldn’t be proven struggling in an excessively animated means, displaying worry, or being humiliated. For occasion, Johnny Cage couldn’t karate chop Kratos’ cranium in half and plant a film award statue within the center.
