Following his defeat, Shang Tsung begs his master, Shao Kahn, to spare his life. He tells Shao Kahn that the invitation for Mortal Kombat cannot be turned down, and if they hold it in Outworld, the Earthrealm warriors must attend. Kahn agrees to this plan, and restores Tsung's youth. He extends the invitation to Raiden, who gathers his warriors and takes them into Outworld. The tournament is dangerous, as Shao Kahn has the home field advantage, and an Outworld victory will unbalance the furies and allow Outworld to subsume Earthrealm. Written by dreamian

Alternate Versions

The Sega Genesis version has a hidden finishing move that does not appear on any other platform of the game. Via a cheat menu, Rayden players on the armory stage can turn a defeated opponent into a small guy in a cheesy tuxedo, and the game calls this a "Fergality". This cheat menu also turns on a different "Toasty" face and accesses a hidden Blue Portal stage. See more »
