The fighters from Mortal Kombat, plus a few new ones, return to the tournament hosted by the evil Outworld Shang Tsung. Battles, as in the first part, are one-on-one, and are famous for a high level of violence and blood. The game has five difficulty levels, and the ability to play together is preserved.
To win the main tournament, you have to beat every Earth character before you face Shang Tsung, Kintaro and finally Shao Kahn. In addition to punches and kicks, Mortal Kombat II added a punch in a seated state, a kick in flight, uppercuts, and a roundhouse kick became more powerful. Also in the game there are special techniques that all characters possess. In addition to fatalities, you can now perform babalities, friendships, and special background finishing moves.
