A tournament held once a generation, conceived by the Elder Gods, as a way to slow Outworld's aggressive expansion against the other realms. When a realm loses 10 consecutive tournaments, the portals open and Outworld absorbs the realm into itself. Earthrealm has lost the last nine tournaments.
This week all four features about the tournament brought to arcades by Midway and eventually kicked off a Congressional panic. Mortal Kombat (1995), Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge, and Mortal Kombat (2021). We are in for a bloody good time. Join us, won't you?
