Like the last three titles in NetherRealm's ultra gory fighting game series, Mortal Kombat 1 features a robust Story Mode. How players decide to run through it is up to them. Some will finish it in one sitting. Some will play a few matches at a time. Others will run through each chapter individually. Of course, to be able to do that, one must know how many chapters are included in the MK1 story. Shacknews is here to answer that question.

Each chapter will take roughly 10-20 minutes to complete, though there are a few exceptions early in the game that will run significantly longer. The Story Mode is a worthwhile investment, not only to see what the future of the Mortal Kombat series holds, but also for at least one significant unlockable.

That's the full number of chapters in the Mortal Kombat 1 Story Mode. Be sure to bookmark the Mortal Kombat 1 topic page for the latest news and guides for NetherRealm's newest fighting game.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
