This Mortal Kombat 2 walkthrough will guide you through the beginning to ending moments of cutscenes and gameplay for this beloved classic sequel to the original bloodsplattering fighter.

Mortal Kombat II added a whole host of new characters and increased the playable roster from 7 to 12 when it debuted at the arcades in 1993.

  • Not all of the characters from the first game made the cut as playable characters in MK2 though, as Sony and Kano are absent from the roster (but you can see them chained up in the background of the Kahn’s Arena stage, though they remain unplayable).

    Additionally, while MK1 featured one hidden character that was unplayable (Reptile, who appears in MK2 from the outset as a playable character with his own unique moveset), MK2 features three hidden characters; two male ninjas (the gray-colored Smoke and shadow/black colored Noob Saibot) and one female ninja (the green-colored Jade) although they are all unplayable.

    Additionally MK2 added several “Pit” stages for different Stage Fatalities and added two new Finishers called “Friendships” and “Babalities”, while also adding two Fatality finishers per character.

    MK2 has been released on many systems including the Amiga, Game Boy, Game Gear, PC, PS1, PS3 (via PlayStation Network), Master System, Genesis, Sega 32X, Saturn, Super NES, PSP and Arcade.

    Obviously the disc based versions feature annoying loading times, but are more graphically and generally audibly closer to the original arcade version than the 16-bit versions. Of the popular SNES and Genesis versions, both have differing music than the original arcade game. The Super NES version of Mortal Kombat 2 is closer to the arcade but features subdued music (but full blood & gore unlike the SNES MK1) while the Genesis version of Mortal Kombat 2 is missing several sound effects and audio samples (including announcement of character names and even the word “Fatality”) but it features more colorful, cartoony graphics than other ports that make it interesting and unique. Both versions also feature unique and exclusive cheat options, including Raiden (or “Rayden” as he is named in MK2) being able to perform a “Fergality” finisher exclusive to the SNES version.

    The best and easiest way to play MK2 is to download it via the PlayStation Network for PS3, as the PSN Mortal Kombat 2 version is the only version that features full online play!

    You can also get the game on the Xbox1, PS2 or GameCube as part of the Midway Arcade Treasures 2 compilation, which features the game in virtually arcade-perfect form. And don’t forget that the Wii is backwards compatible with GameCube so you can play MK2 on the Wii using the GameCube version of Midway Arcade Treasures 2! Meanwhile you can also find the game for the PSP as part of the “Midway Arcade Treasures: Extended Play” compilation which also features near arcade-perfect versions of MK1 and MK3!

    Alternatively to finding the game online via the MAME emulator (which would be the easiest way to play the arcade version) you can also find the game for the PS2 and Xbox1 as an unlockable in Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks, last generations co-op 2005 beat-em up action adventure.

    Hopefully Mortal Kombat 2 will eventually be re-released for Xbox Live Arcade or Wii Virtual Console and/or the 3DS eShop in the near future.
