The History of Mortal Kombat, 1992-2014 | Power Up Gaming
The Mortal Kombat series first hit arcades in 1992 and, if the hype coming out of E3 surrounding the Mortal Kombat X announcement is anything to go by, the franchise is still as popular today as it's ever been. In celebration of the tenth entry in the main series, we've put together a video showing footage from every MK game, as well as some of its various spin-offs in the form of comics, TV shows and movies. The video's title cards, listing quick information about each title in the franchise, are summarised after the jump.
