FAQ ever made before the big wave of other MK3 FAQ's. This is also the
Biggest and most informative FAQ out. If you don't like the size of this
FAQ there is another FAQ I now have that just covers Moves, Kombos,
Fatals, and Kombat Kodes, no stories.

北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北

"Rules of the Tournament"

"The Shaolin Tournament for Martial Arts is more than a simple
exhibition. Each of its combatants has been invited for his
extraordinary skills, and each accepting has wagered his/her very
life upon them. The tournament's structure - as simple as it is
ancient - tests all aspects of a warrior, for only the most worthy
may earn the title of Grand Champion."

"The tournament first tests a warrior's fighting skill by pitting
him against each of the tournament's other challengers. In all Mortal
Kombat battles, meters on the upper-left and upper-right corners of the
screen measure the health of each warrior. The meters begin each round
at full health, but are reduced with each blow taken. The amount of
reduction depends both on the type of hit and whether or not it was
blocked. When a warriors health meter runs out, he is knocked out and
the round is awarded to his opponent. Should time run out before either
combatant is knocked out, the warrior with the less injury is declared
the victor. The first warrior to win two rounds takes the match and moves
on to the next opponent. Sometimes when both warriors hit each other at
the same time when all of their life has ran out or both warriors have
the same amount of damage when time runs out, the match is declared a
draw. If four rounds pass without a winner, both combatants will be
disqualified from the tournament, or if no one decides to hit the other."

"An ancient proverb declares a warrior to be his own worst enemy.
Another declares his greatest ally to be knowledge of his weaknesses."

"The Beginning"

"Thousands of years ago an order of the wisest men from the Far East
received visions of a dark realm. This realm came to be known as the
OUTWORLD. It was a dark and Chaotic and ruled by a vicious emperor.
The wise men knew that travel between the dark realm and Earth would
someday be possible if the conditions were right. The conditions being
the unbalancing of the furies - negative and positive forces which keep
our unstable universe from collapsing onto itself. Knowing that the
eminent Outworld invasion would prove too much for Earth, they
appealed to the Elder Gods. It was for this reason the Elder Gods
created the tournament of Mortal Kombat. Though this contest, we protect
not only the safety of our realm, but the existence of our souls."

Page 5

"Evil Reborn"

"For centuries Earth has used Mortal Kombat to defend itself against
the Outworld's Emperor - Shao Kahn. But Kahn becomes frustrated by
failed attempts at taking Earth though the tournament battle. He decides
to enact a plan which began almost 10,000 years ago. It was during a
time in which Kahn had a queen. Her name was Sindel and her premature
death was devastating. Kahn's shadow priests, lead by sorcerer Shang
Tsung, would make it so Sindel's spirit would someday be reborn - not
on the OUTWORLD but on the Earth realm itself. This unholy act gives
Shao Kahn the power to step though the dimensional gates and reclaim
his queen, thus enabling him to finally seize Earth"

"Conquest"

"Upon breaching the Portal into Earth, Shao Kahn strips the planet of
all human life. He claims every soul as his own. Slowly the Earth begins
turning into a part of the Outworld itself. But there are human souls which
Shao Kahn cannot take. These souls belong to the warriors chosen to
represent Earth in a new Mortal Kombat. The warriors are scattered
through-out the planet and Kahn sends an army of fierce Outworld warriors
to find and eliminate them. Some of the Earth's warriors survive the attacks, but
most do not. The remaining few hold the chance at saving all of human kind."

"Raiden's Creed"

"Remember these words warriors."

"You have been chosen to represent Earth in Mortal Kombat. Each of you
poses a vital threat to Shao Kahn's occupation of Earth. Be warned;
although your souls are protected against Shao Kahn's evil, your
lives are not! I cannot interfere with these matters any longer. Your
Earth is now governed by the gods of the Outworld."

"These are the words of RAIDEN."

北 GENERAL DEFINITIONS 北
北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北

Run Button:
The Run Button is the yellow button that is new to MK. It's Down and to
the Left of the Low Punch Button. You can run forward by holding run and
towards. While you run the Run Meter under your life bar will go down, like
the Turbo meter in NBA JAM, and then fill back up after you stop running.

Special Moves:
Special Moves are attacks that are unique to each fighter. Special Moves
usually take more damage off an opponent than a normal attack. They are done
with joystick and button combinations.

Kombos:
Kombos are combinations of kicks, punches, and or special moves. A
successful kombo can damage your opponent heavily, but combos
are limited to the Length of your Run Meter, because while you do
a kombo the Run Meter goes down and limits the number of hits.
You can get high hitting combos if you use the Unlimited Run KK.
After you finish a kombo the screen shows the # of hits and % of
damage inflicted upon your opponent.

Finishing Moves:
Finishing Moves are Special Moves that are done ONLY after the game says
"FINISH HIM/HER!!" After it says this you should quickly get to the distance
that the move requires you to be at and do the movements/button presses. The
different Finishing Moves are listed below.


Fatality:
A Fatality is a Finishing Move that kills your opponent. A fatality
can be many different things. There are only two Fatalities per person
and 1 or more will be added in MK3 Extreme.

Mercy:
A Mercy is a Finishing Move that can only be done in Round 3. A mercy gives
your opponent a small amount of life back for a last chance to live. To do a
mercy you do this movement: Hold RUN, D, D, Rel. then your opponent
regains consciousness after the word MERCY comes on the screen. You have to
be farther than sweep distance in order to get this to work. It also helps
if you hold RUN for two seconds, do the two downs, then release RUN.

Animality:
An Animality is a Finishing Move where your character turns into an
animal and kills his/her victim. An animality MUST be done after a mercy,
and each character has different movements for the animality.

Page 7

Babality:
A Babality is a Finishing Move that turns your opponent into a Baby.
In Order to do a Babality you must not use block in the winning round. The
word Babality is spelled out in Building Block letters.

Friendship:
A Friendship is a Finishing Move that makes you be friends with your
opponent. You can't use block in the Winning Round. Shao Kahn says
"Friendship, Friendship" just as before then he Says "Again?" The word
friendship is spelled out in balloons that are blown up and get smaller
while Shao Kahn talks.

Pit 3 Fatality:
The person gets cut up in giant blades and body parts go everywhere in a
spray of blood. The screen pauses right before the body hits the blades and
then the body falls, kind of weird.

Subway Fatality:
The person gets knocked up into the ceiling and then they fall down in the
background tracks and then he/she gets hit by a oncoming train.

Shao Kahn's Tower:
You uppercut him/her and then he/she falls down through all the floors of
the tower. When he/she reaches the bottom he/she lands in spikes at the
bottom just like in The Pit 1.

Kombat Kodes:
A Kombat Code is a six digit code that you can put in on the 2 Player VS
screen. After you and your opponent pick fighters to see a screen with
your fighters from the waist up in a battle stance. At the bottom there is
6 boxes with icons in it. Player one controls the first three with
LP (First Box), BL (Second Box), and LK (Third Box). Player two controls
the last three with LP (Fourth Box), BL (Fifth Box), and LK (Sixth Box).
You can cycle through the icons backwards if you hold Up and press one of
your buttons. If you and player two put together the 6 icons in a special
order you'll get an effect in the game, which will be shown on the bottom
of the screen when the round begins.

The Ultimate Kombat Kodes:
The Ultimate Kombat Kode or UKK is a Kode that you put in after you die
in a one player game and don't continue. Then the game asks you for
The Ultimate Kombat Kode and if you get it wrong it says Incorrect Kode
and Shao Kahn taunts you. If you put in The Ultimate Kode it'll unlock
Smoke and makes him playable, till the machine's memory battery is
pulled out in 2.1, or Factory Defaults are Reset in 2.0.

北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北

All or most of the backgrounds were rendered on Silicon Graphics
Workstations machines at Midway HQ.

Soul Chamber:
You are fighting in a cave like area. There is a large figure of an open
monster mouth with greenish smoke, bodiless souls, moving around inside.
You can see some faces peek out of it at times. There are some giant skull
figures with their mouths open in the background. There are some spikes
on the edge of the walkway that look like teeth. There are also a few
statues of the MK 2 Sorcerers. You can get knocked through the ceiling
here up to The Balcony.

The Graveyard:
You are fighting in a graveyard at night. The night sky is a very dark
purple. A lot of the tombstones have some interesting names like, Boon,
Tobias, Beran, Mikicich, Cage, etc. They all seem to have died on April
1, 1995, which is April fool's day and the day that MK3 was shipped, and
released at most places. There are also some tombstones with the MK
Dragon logo on top. And it appears that the names on the graves switch
places every round or two.

Shao Kahn Tower:
You are fighting in a bell tower which can see out the windows to the
night sky. Everything is made of wood. You can see the moon in the
background. Performing your character's Pit Fatality movement on this stage
will knock them down through seven wooden floors. At the bottom, there are
a bunch of spikes that your opponent lands in.

The Pit 3:
You are fighting on a bridge with spikes on the side of the walkway.
There are floating green lamps in the background. There are big statues
of faces in the back and sides of the stage. In this stage you knock
them down into the pit, when you hit the bottom there are big turning
blades that will cut you up into lots of pieces.

The Subway:
You are fighting on the subway tracks in the rail depot. The overhead
lights are flickering on and off. When you uppercut your opponent, he/she
gets smashed up into the street and then you follow. You cannot uppercut
if you want to do the Pit Fatality on this stage. By doing the Pit
Fatality, your opponent gets uppercuted up, as if it were a normal
uppercut in a normal game, but instead of you following up behind him/her,
he/she lands in the background on the Subway tracks and a subway train comes
by and knocks them over. A real crowd pleaser.

Page 11
The Bank:
You are fighting in a hallway with walls and windows on the side. There is
a stone floor with symbols on it. The windows view out to the city. Out
there you can see Shao Kahn's tower with the portal above it. It doesn't
look to much like a bank because it has no indication of a bank. On each
wall there are some lamps. You can be knocked though the ceiling here to the
Rooftop stage.

The Rooftop:
You are fighting on a rooftop, and there is a cityscape with Shao Kahn's
tower in the very back with the portal circling the top. It appears that
you can knock them down off the building to the bottom of the building.
There is a big dragon logo on the floor in the center of the stage.

The Balcony:
It looks that you are fighting in a old castle. Off in the background,
you can see a green glowing pit. There are large statues of Motaro to the
far right and left. The green glowing pit seems to lead down into the
mouth of the statue with the souls in the Soul Chamber. You can get to
this stage from the Soul Chamber by uppercutting.

The Bridge:
You are fighting on a street bridge. You can see some cityscape in the
back. Plenty of newspapers and other litter blow in the wind. It looks
like the bottom of the Rooftop stage. It also appears that this stage is
right next to the street stage.

The Temple:
You are fighting in a church or temple. There is a large stained glass
window in the back with the MK Dragon Logo on it. There is a red cloth
draped over the altar that has a gold MK Dragon Logo on it, and there
are red candles in the foreground.

The Street:
You are fighting in a city street. This is where you fight after going
through the subway ceiling. This stage has paper and litter blowing in
the wind in the background. This stage appears to be at the bottom of
the rooftop stage.

The Portal 2 (Smoke's Stage):
You are fighting near a portal on a bridge. To fight on The Portal 2,
you have to enter the Kombat Kode at the VS Screen in a Two Player game.
The stage has the bridge with spikes from The Pit 3. Instead of floating
lamps and faces in the background, you see the Portal. You can't fight
here if Smoke is a playable character. And The Portal 2 is not in
Revision 1.0.

Stage from MK3 Extreme, ? Hell ?:
You are fighting in what looks like hell. The stage has a pool of
lava-like liquid in the background, and pillars with skeletons covering
them. You can also see a bridge with arcs in the background.

北 BOSSES 北
北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北

Boss # 1:
Motaro

Played by: A Clay Figurine

Motaro is the first boss that you face. He belongs to the Centaurian Race.
The Centaurians are Half Human, Horse monsters with a steel tail. He looks
just like a Human, Horse, and some type of dinosaur rolled into one. He
can be very cheap with his teleporting and fireballs. Projectiles either
disappear or bounce back at you so don't use them.

Strategy to Beat:

Jump Kick him, and he will fall back. While he is laying back, run over
to him and do a super Kombo. You have to be quick or he will grab you
and hit you.
Run in on him when he jumps up and throws the fireball from
his tail and Kombo him.
Whenever you start a Kombo on him, if he is blocking the combo, in the
middle of the combo he will quit blocking and your last hits from the
kombo hit him. There are mid points to some combos in which he can grab
you in the middle of your kombo.
You can also walk backwards and do a jump kick whenever he jumps up,
then hold Back. When he gets up, he will jump up again for you to jump
kick.

Boss # 2:
Shao Kahn

Played by Brian Glynn

Shao Kahn is a lot harder to defeat him than before. He still wears the
same outfit but is now taller and has many new moves. He doesn't taunt
you as much but now does more often in Revision 2.1, and uses a big steel
mallet to hit you with. He still has his Shadow Charge and a new Shadow
Uppercut. He also has a fireball just like Kabal's in the way that it comes
from his head.

Strategy to Beat:

You can beat him with Kabal by Holding D + BL. Whenever he does his
Shadow Uppercut, Do a Spin. This will leave him spinning in the air. Hit
HP, HP, HP, B, B, HP. This will hit him with three HP's and a Fireball.
When ever he taunts you, spin him and do a Super Kombo.

With characters like Sektor and Liu Kang and any other character with a
fast projectile can beat him easily by using the fast projectile.

With Cyrax, all you have to do is throw the net over and over again. But
be careful, he can do a Shadow Uppercut right through your net. Do the same
with Sub Zero.

RELLIM OHCANEP
(Backwards is MILLER PENACHO)

This is the message you get after you enter the Galaga Kombat Kode or
have Reached 100 battles. You use HP to shoot the lasers. It plays many
different sounds while he game is in play, very confusing. The game is also
very fast. The game is Programmed by Mark Penacho and Kent Miller.

A Kombat Kode is a six digit code that you can put in on the 2 Player VS
screen. After you and your opponent pick fighters to see a screen with
your fighters from the waist up in a battle stance. At the bottom there is
6 boxes with icons in it. Player one controls the first three with
LP (First Box), BL (Second Box), and LK (Third Box). Player two controls
the last three with LP (Fourth Box), BL (Fifth Box), and LK (Sixth Box).
You can cycle through the icons backwards if you hold Up and press one of
your buttons. If you and player two put together the 6 icons in a special
order you'll get an effect in the game, which will be shown on the bottom
of the screen when the round begins.

- Hidden Character in the graveyard. If you watch the names on the graves
in the graveyard you will notice that the names move from grave to
grave every round. It seems that Boons Grave is either there or not there.
People have said that they have gotten Johnny Cage to come out of his
grave to fight you if you do a movement in front of his grave. I don't
believe that, but maybe someone else.

Ending:

extermination squads...Kang is the reining Mortal Kombat champion and
proves it by easily defeating Kahn's minions. But it is the apparent

the strength to defeat Shao Kahn. Then, before the portal closes, Liu
Kang is greeted by Princess Kitana and thanked for saving the Earth and
the Outworld."

**** SONYA ****

finds himself the lone survivor of a city once populated by millions."

Ending:

Stryker receives a vision from Raiden. He is instructed to travel

his own partner. But Smoke soon finds himself being pursued by Shao Khan's
minions. He learns he still has a soul and his true mission is the
destruction of the Outworld invaders. He defeats Kahn and saves the
world, but is forever trapped in his artificial body."

**** SUB - ZERO ****
Story:
"The Ninja returns unmasked. Betrayed by his own clan, the Lin Kuei,
he broke sacred codes of honor by leaving his clan and is marked for death.
But unlike the Ninja of old his pressures come as machines. He must not only
defend from the Outworld menace, but he must also elude his soulless
assassins."

Page 37
**** CYRAX ****
Story:
"Cyrax is unit LK-4D4, the second of three prototype cybernetic
ninjas built by the Lin Kuei. Like his counterparts his last program command
is to find and terminate the rogue Ninja Sub Zero. Without a soul Cyrax
goes undetected by Shao Kahn and remains a possible threat against his
occupation of Earth"

Ending:
"Cyrax is captured by Sub-Zero and reprogrammed with new orders: to
destroy Shao Kahn. With Kahn unable to detect his assassin's soulless
presence, Cyrax delivers a successful sneak attack. However, after
eliminating Kahn and saving Earth, Cyrax awaits new orders from his Lin
Kuei headquarters. The orders never come and Cyrax malfunctions. He
ends up stranded in the middle of a vast desert, blindly heading toward
his base."

**** SEKTOR ****
Story:
"Sektor is actually the code name for unit LK-9T9. He was the
first of three prototype cybernetic ninjas built by the Lin Kuei. Sektor
was once a human assassin trained by the Lin Kuei. He volunteered for
automation because of his loyalty to the Clan. Sektor survives the Outworld
invasion - he has no soul to take.

Ending:
"After eventually terminating Sub-Zero, Sektor is attacked by Shao
Kahn's army. Unfamiliar with the Outworld warriors, Sektor fights back.
He targets Kahn and all Outworld beings as threats to the Lin Kuei.
Kahn's minions are no match for Sektor, who fights his way into the
fortress. Once inside, Sektor initiates his self-destruct sequence. The
resulting explosion is so massive that it closes the portal and returns
Earth back to normal."

**** NIGHTWOLF ****
Story:
"Works as a historian and preserver of his People's culture. When
Kahn's portal opens over North America, Nightwolf uses the magic of his
Shaman to protect his tribe's sacred land. This area becomes a vital
threat to Kahn's invasion of the Earth."

Ending:
"Nightwolf helps the other Earth warriors escape to his sacred land.
Once there, they regroup and plan a form of attack against Shao Kahn's
invasion. Nightwolf has trained hard for this battle. Finally, he faces
Shao Kahn and emerges victorious. When the Earth returns to its normal
state, Nightwolf peacefully regains his land his Native-American people
lost over many years. They establish their own proud nation and soon
become the great leaders of Earth."

Page 38
**** SHEEVA ****
Story:
"She was hand picked by Shao Kahn to serve as Sindel's personal
Protector. She becomes suspicious of Shao Kahn's loyalty toward her race
of Shokan when he places Motaro head of his extermination squads. On the
Outworld Motaro's race of Centaurians are the natural enemy of the
Shokan."

Ending:
"While Sheeva serves her master on Earth, her race of Shokan are being
punished on the Outworld. Kahn now favors Motaro's race of centaurs and
aids them in defeating the Shokan. After learning of these events,
Sheeva turns on her master. She defeats Motaro and in a rage brings down
Kahn. In freeing the Earth, she also frees the Outworld. She then
returns home and works to restore the pride and respect of her race."

**** KUNG LAO ****

Story:
"After avenging the death of his great ancestor by emerging supreme
champion against all Outworld opponents, Kung Lao returns to Earth to
train a new generation of Shaolin alongside Liu Kang. But Lao's greatest
challenges lie ahead, fighting for those who cannot defend themselves
against Shao Kahn's treachery."

Ending:
"When Shao Kahn invades Earth, Kung Lao must scrap his plans of
reuniting the White Lotus Society. He instead must focus on the new
tournament. He seeks Liu Kang and together they battle Kahn's forces
fearlessly. Using the knowledge he obtained as a Shaolin monk he fights
in the name of his great ancestor - the original Kung Lao. He emerges
victorious but suffers from injuries during battle with Kahn. Believed to
have passed away, Kung Lao joins his ancestors in a new life."

**** KABAL ****
Story:
"As a chosen warrior his identity is a mystery to all. It is
believed he is a survivor of an attack by Shao Kahn's extermination
squads. As a result, he is viciously scarred, kept alive only by
artificial respirators and a rage for ending Shao Kahn's
conquest."

Ending:
"After returning from near death, Kabal swears revenge against his
attackers. He fights alongside the other Earth warriors. When he defeats
Motaro and the mighty Shao Kahn he proves that he truly is the chosen
one. Before the invasion, Kabal lived a life of crime. He was once a
member of the Black Dragon along with Kano. Now Kabal devotes his life
to fighting injustice. He will give crime's inner circles a new reason
to fear."

北 QUESTION SECTION 北
北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北

I now added a Question section from some questions I get all the time.
So now I'll answer some questions in this section but you must send them
to me. Read the bottom of this section for info on sending me questions
for the FAQ.

Q. Who's back in the game from the old ones?
A. Kano, Sonya, and Liu Kang are the ones returning from the first
Mortal Kombat. Sub-Zero, Kung Lao, Jax, and Shang Tsung. Subbie is
the Sub-zero from the second game not the first game.

Q. Is Cyrax really Scorpion?
A. No, Cyrax is all robot but Sektor is a cyborg. Sektor is formerly a
ninja trained by the Lin Kuei ninja clan and volunteered to become part
Robot, that can be the old Sub-Zero or Scorpion even though Scorpion
belonged to a different ninja clan.

Q. Is that WAV file of Johnny Cages death real?
A. Yes that WAV file is Real. I know that because when you put in a coin
into Proto 1.0 or 2.0 you hear the gong from the begging of the WAV file,
so that proves that the WAV is real. Also the gongs and part of the music
are in the intro screen with Raiden's Creed.

Q. How do you play as Smoke and fight him?
A. To fight him all you have to do is put the KK. But to flip around the
center tile with Smoke behind you have to enter the UKK. There is no other
way to play as Smoke.

Q. What does the music sound like?
A. The music has a deep spooky sound in some stages. The music in the
Church has a spooky gothic feel to it. Also I think that the Subway
has the best music. The music is all different for different stages
to go along with the feel of the stage

Q. What does the Arcade unit look like?
A. The arcade unit has a picture of Shao Kahn and his queen Sindel
standing on Shao Kahn's castle in the middle of a large abandoned city with
the portal off in the distance over the city. On the top you just see the
words MK 3 with the Dragon logo in the bottom arc of the 3. Bellow the
joysticks you see the words Mortal Kombat 3, the only place on the whole
machine that says Mortal Kombat 3. But your may be different if it's a kit.

Page 40
Q. What are the joysticks set up like?
A. There is the standard MK button layout with a new button, the RUN
button. The run button is diagonally down from the LP. The 4 buttons
RUN, LP, BL, HK are lined up perfectly. But this may be different if
yours is a kit.

Q. Is this one more realistic than MK2? I thought it was real stupid
just having a pair of legs standing on its own...And do they keep Bleeding
after fatalities?
A. MK3 is allot more realistic looking than MK2. Some Fatalities have
Skeletons which are pure white not Bloody. But other Fatalities have more
realistic looking after effects like Sindel's Where she screams your skin
off and the body has all the muscles exposed and bloody looking. They
still have problems with explosion Fatalities where two heads fall, or
having too many legs.

Q. Are all the Pits and Mercies the Same?
A. Yes, but in 1.0 only. In 2.0 everyone has different movements
for each Pit Fatal/Mercy. The mercy is still the same but knowing Midway
in the fall revision they will again change all the mercies different for
everyone.

Q. Is there more than one UKK in the game?
A. There is only one UKK in the game and that is the Smoke UKK.

If you have any questions send them to me with the subject
MK3 Question
And if I like it I'll put it into the FAQ

北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北

* Random Select: U + Start the same as before
* The graves in the graveyard move to different places every round.
* After starting a new 1 player game. The game shows a screen with this
caption at top:
CHOOSE YOUR DESTINY
This screen has 3 Towers that you can pick from and they each have a
name. The Middle Tower MASTER, The Left Tower WARRIOR, and The Right
Tower NOVICE. MASTER is the hardest because in it you have to fight all
14 Characters and the two bosses. The only difference in difficulty is
how many fights you have to be in.
* You can be knocked through the ceiling in the Bank, Subway, and now
the Soul Chamber.
* Dan "Toasty" Forden returns again bigger and better looking and with
a purple shirt. But he now can be heard saying Toasty, Frosty, and
a mystery saying that might be Misty, Krispy, or Missed Me. To get him
to come up and say Frosty!: Be Sub-Zero and Freeze you opponent while
in Danger. He will then pop up and say FROSTY! You can do this over and
over.
* PLAY A GAME OF GALAGA: 100 battles in a row. Or can be done by Kombat
Kode. And you use HP to fire. Very expensive to do in a 2 Player game
because you can't continue, unless you win, I think.
* New Ending: When you beat the game on master in shows a new screen with
three "Elder Gods." One of the Gods is Raiden, god of thunder. The other
two are said to be other Japanese mythical gods. The screen says:
You have proven to be the supreme Mortal Kombat warrior. The Elder Gods
now descend upon your world to grant you eternal power.
More Kombat--Fall 95.
* If you can defeat Smoke with the Kombat Kode by letting the time run out,
you will fight Kano in the Portal. Only if you do this on a machine with
no UKK put in.
* Different Blood for different types of Characters
Green - Sheeva and Motaro
Black - Cyrax, Sektor, and Smoke
Red - Humans

北 BUGS SECTION 北
北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北北

* You can kill Shao Kahn with just fast projectiles, Liu Kang and Stryker

* In the street stage, or was it the Bridge, if you do a Finishing Move that scrolls
the screen to make the person the Finishing Move is being performed on to be in the
center. The screen will get messed up showing more of the stage but all
Black with papers blowing around. Kind of Weird looking.

* The Computer Controlled Kabal can do many strange things. He walks in
the air every now and then. I saw him do a teleport type thing where he
dropped down through the floor and then came down slowly from the back of
the human controlled opponent. Kabal is just full of bugs.

* Double Fatality: Do Cyrax's Helicopter Fatality the tap Right+LK
The opponent will reappear and then you can come up and do the pit
fatality to kill him/her. Only works on 2.0.

* Multiple Bomb Drop: Similar to the Double Fatality but you hold LK and
tap Left+HK after doing Cyrax's Helicopter Fatality Cyrax will start
dropping bombs to the ground, but as long as you keep on tapping. The
bombs will not explode, just sit there. Only works on 2.0.

* Free Credits: After beating a one Player game when the Characters start
jumping down you have to rapidly tap start. This does mess the game up
by resting factory defaults, meaning if you play on a machine that costs 3
coins it'll now cost only 2. Only on 2.0.

* Free Play: This must be done on a machine without Smoke playable and only
on 2.0. After doing the free credit trick above, beat a few guys die and
then enter the the Ultimate Kombat Kode (UKK) which is on Page 33. When
the game starts up the game system will be on Free Play. Don't get caught
doing this because you can get fined and/or kicked out for life.

* Heres some info on PC Version of MK3. It has very large sprites.
Requires a 486 SX 33, but recommends a 486 DX2 60 Not much as of yet,
but the game will support Modem Play and Network for tournaments.
Smoke, Shao Kahn, and Motaro are all playable. It runs in VGA, but
sharp VGA. The sounds are being directly to the PC from the arcade.
Boon says it'll blow away the SNES version. Also even the keyboard
control is very tight. The game should be Released on October 13th, Fatal
Friday. This is being sold by GT Interactive, but Made by Williams/Midway.
* The SNES Version of MK3 looks very good, but the names are out of
the Power bars, under the Run Meter. The characters are almost the same
size of the arcade version. This will satisfy any SNES owner, until
the U64 comes out. The release date for this is October 13th, Fatal
Friday. Look for a FAQ on this version in October. Also In EGM2 Issue 13
page 99 it shows the MK3 SNES picture of the Character Select screen with
Shao Kahn in the middle where Smoke or the Dragon Should be. Game made by
Williams/Midway.
* The PlayStation Version is identical to the Arcade, except for a
few differences: There is only one digit for WINS: on the top of the
screen. And it has a LONG loading time before each fight. The Characters
are smaller than the arcade and seem to be equal size of the SNES's. Sony
has a deal with Midway for this to be the only Next Generation CD-ROM
based home system to get MK3 for a while. The release date for this might
be September 9th, that's the date for PlayStation to hit US Shores. Look
for a FAQ on this version in September, by C. Koziol and me. Game made
by Sony Entertainment and Williams/Midway.
* The Genesis version is not as good as the SNES. But better than the MK2
for Genesis version. The characters are very small and grainy, but the
backgrounds look good. The release date for this is October 13th,
Fatal Friday. I might make a FAQ for this Version if someone is willing to
do it with me. Game made by Williams/Midway.
* The new ROM upgrade coming in September will be called MK3 Extreme. It'll
have 5 new characters, 4 of the confirmed characters are: Kitana,
Scorpion, Reptile, and Jade. The other is a hidden character that you
must use a UKK to get to. There are also some new stages, I've seen only
one so far. Look in the stages section for it's description. They are
doing this to keep interest in the arcade game, and MK3 Extreme is going
to be on the Ultra 64 Home version only. And the game will have one new
-ality added, plus one more fatality per person.
* Mortal Kombat the Movie is now out. It has amazing special effects in
almost every part of the movie. The Kombatants that appear in the movie
are: Liu Kang, Johnny Cage, Sonya Blade, Raiden, Kano, Sub-Zero,
Scorpion, Reptile, Shang Tsung, Goro, Kitana, and Jax (Spelled Jaxx in
the Credits.) Scorpion's voice is done by Ed Boon, thats why it sounds
the same as in the game. Midway had the movie delayed till August from
the April Release date, so they could redo the ending and the special
effects. It's rated PG-13 and was almost Rated R because of some of the
scenes in the movie. Nothing In This World Has Prepared You For This.
