Mortal Kombat 3 on PlayStation 1

Mortal Kombat 3 is a fighting game developed by Midway and first released into arcades in 1995. It is the third game in the Mortal Kombat series. Just as the previous games, Mortal Kombat 3 has a cast of characters that players choose from and guide through a series of battles against other opponents. The game eschews the tournament storyline of its predecessors, as various warriors instead fight against the returning Shao Kahn, who has resurrected his bride Sindel and started an invasion of Earthrealm.

This third installment in the series retains the blood and gory attacks that defined the series. It also adds new finishing maneuvers, including animalities, in which a character transforms into an animal to finish off enemies. Also new to the series were Kombos, predefined sequences of buttons/joystick moves used to perform a series of consecutive attacks. A "Run" button was also added, allowing players to briefly dash toward the opponent. Mortal Kombat 3 also debuted "Kombat Kodes" a lock system using various symbols that can be entered before two-player matches to achieve certain effects. The codes were revealed through gaming magazines, promotional material and other Mortal Kombat media. The longest code, dubbed the "Ultimate Kombat Kode" was entered on the game over screen and was used to unlock a robotic version of Smoke.

Some characters from the previous games returned and new characters were introduced into the series. The game notably omitted popular characters from previous games, some of whom were re-added in an update, Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. The home console exclusive Mortal Kombat Trilogy added even more characters, as well as other new features.
