Mortal Kombat 3 [Arcade – Beta]

Mortal Kombat 3 is the third game in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series, released in arcades in 1995. It was updated into Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 in arcade and home consoles, and later Mortal Kombat Trilogy home consoles only. Mortal Kombat 3 has been released for DOS, Game Boy, Game Gear, Genesis, Master System, PlayStation, Super NES and Windows. [Info from Wikipedia]

From the Mortal Kombat Secrets website we can read about many differences in the beta builds of the game, such as early character select screen, a removed red carpet in “The Bank” stage and a removed sub-boss with two big hammers. Sektor’s original name was “ketchup”, Cyrax’s original names were “mustard” and even “Robocop” at one point, Sindel was known as “Muchacha” and Kabal’s working name was “Sandman”.

Kurtis Stryker was supposed to appear in MK1 but it was removed, then in MK2 but it was changed into Jax. Only in MK3 Kurtis Stryker made its final appearance in the series. You can find out more about the MK3 beta at Mortal Kombat Secrets!

    Actually, that looked like a picture of Smoke who was nicknamed Robocop. I just love the Mustard/Ketchup beta names, they’re so freakin’ hilarious.

    Seriously, what gray-colored condiment is there? No wonder they used Robocop. Ironic that the only cop in the series is definately NOT a robot.

    CHEWS YOUR FIGHTER. With the ketchup/mustard thing, it just works. Imagine a food themed varient of Mortal Kombat.

    Mortal Karrot.

    I remember how the previews in the magazines didn’t even have the new characters’ names in the health bars… Except for Sheeva, I think she was the first one whose name the devs settled on.
