so today I messed around a bit with the SNES Mortal Kombat 2 beta rom

i’ve learned the following:

You can do fatalities whenever you want, in many situations they don’t even kill and are repeatable

fatalities cannot be dodged, also Scorpion turns into Sub-zero for some reason when he gets cut in half

the beta has no draw games, if the timer runs out with both players having equal HP then it just cuts back to the title screen. if you happened to be scrolling the screen at that moment, the momentum carries over to the title screen

fatalities can be interrupted, often freezing your opponent and leaving sprites stuck on the screen. grabbing your opponent in this frozen state damages YOU, not them

doing this during Reptile’s fatality lets you just walk off the damn screen. also, his head comes off

fatalities can even be interrupted by another fatality

lastly, baraka floats. he just fuckin’ floats y’all

in conclusion I give it an amazing/10, I don’t regret checking this out


So my friend works at NetherRealm Studios and gave me a quick tour the other day. The place is awesome and I got to see some really cool stuff including the disembodied head of Goro from the first Mortal Kombat movie. Here are just a few of the pictures I was afforded.

I doodled the Mortal Kombat girls, but not in their non revealing and insane outfits. I am kinda pleased with this~

I know Kitana and Mileena are copies of one another, but Mileena is a clone meant to replace Kitana, might as well wear similar royal outfits. I also love Jade’s hair OMG. I drew this because I played MK all Thanksgiving break, and hated how ridiculous their outfits got later on in the games. My fave was always Mortal Kombat II because of Kitana *giggles*
