  • Improved Sub-Zero fatality to show the front size of the heads.
  • Reduce the “greenness” of the Goro’s Lair new parallax.
  • Fixed Johnny Cage skin colors.
  • Improved mini avatar for Sub-Zero, Scorpion, Liu Kang, Johnny Cage, Kano.
  • Reworked Rayden stance animation and victory standing, restoring the “blue” eyes.
  • Reworked Scorpion/Sub-Zero head on victory standing.
  • Reworked Sub-Zero sprites on stance animation and victory standing.
  • Fixed Sub-Zero walking animation (it was broken, with disappearing arms).
  • Fixed Sonya belly, hair and shoes colors.
  • Fixed Liu Kang stance animation and victory standing.
  • Made the Genesis soundtrack order the default option.

Everything I could want!

Reviewed By: Lantern jaw on 08 Dec 2022

When I think about the hours of play that I poured into the original MD port, wishing, hoping, squinting my eyes and pretending that it was as good as the arcade, THIS brings a tear to a middle-aged man’s eyes.

Every improvement, from Sub Zero’s stance to Shang Tsung clapping and turning his head in his throne is like a gift. All those changes…If you know, you know!

I’d even go so far as to say that all the menu options lift this above even the arcade.

I’m playing this on a PS Classic, but I’d love to get my old MD out and give it an original hardware whirl.
