This week on Shack's Arcade Corner, we take a look back at Mortal Kombat 4. The arcade cabinet was developed by Midway Games and released in 1997. This was a huge jump for the franchise as it was the first time players would see polygonal characters as opposed to the two dimensional sprites of the first three entrants in the series. Mortal Kombat 4 was the first game to be released after the universally panned Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero and it got things back on track before the next few games fell off precipitously. NetherRealm Studios was able to pick up the license and is in the middle of a great resurgence for the MK series. Please take a look at this video for more information about the arcade classic Mortal Kombat 4.
