In this reboot, NetherRealms Studios breaks away from Midway after the awkward rendition of Mortal Kombat Vs. DC to give players a reboot of the Mortal Kombat franchise. In the newest Mortal Kombat installment, combatants fight in order to save earth from Emperor Shao Khan.
The story mode takes place between Mortal Kombat 1, 2 and 3, which gives old players great memories of each of the fighter games' classic stories but also lets newcomers understand the Mortal Kombat story so beloved by older generations. The story gets to the point of understanding the classic Mortal Kombat but does not go too deep for newer players.
