Old Versions

Mortal Kombat Trilogy - In Development

The First Logo

Below is a picture of the original Mortal Kombat Trilogy logo, that contains parts of the logos of all previous Mortal Kombat games. During the development period this version has been replaced with the one, that is in the game.

The Original Select and Mode screen

The first select screen that were shown to the public is not the one we all know from the final game. The select screen below appeared in a several magazines and in a couple of trailers that were related to the game. What is the difference? Johnny Cage is not part of the team, same with all the bosses and Human Smoke. The "Select mode of Play" screen below is also a part of the same version of the game.


In a later beta version of the game the "Select Your Fighter" screen for the PlayStation version has been changed to the one showed below. It already contains the four bosses (Goro and Kintaro's icons still uses the original Human Smoke icon from Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3) and Human Smoke. Johnny Cage is still missing, but there is a dragon logo right before the Kintaro's icon.

Johnny Cage

Originally Johnny Cage was the only one character who would not appear in the game. This was, because the actor, who made the motion capture for Cage in mortal Kombat II got fired by Midway, because he used his role as Johnny Cage in the game to advertise a product made by other company. Later the team decided to make a new motion capture with a new actor (Chris Alexander) for this character, and so appeared the new Johnny Cage. He is the only one character who use new sprites in Mortal Kombat Trilogy.

The Bank

The Bank arena was removed from the arcade version of UMK3. Anyway the team decided to put it back in MK Trilogy. They updated the arena by adding a carpet. Here is one of the first variations of the carpet:

Character and Backgrounds

Originally there were 29 playable character and 26 backgrounds, but this has been changed and in the final game there are:

PC, Play Station, Sega Saturn: 37 playable character and 29 background
Nintendo 64: 30 playable character and 29 backgrounds


The bio given to Rain in most instruction manuals, which states that he is a Lin Kuei ninja, actually belonged to Tremor? Tremor was to be put in Mortal Kombat Trilogy, but eventually pulled out. However, in early versions of the game his bio would appear as a glitch.

Rain's false Bio that originally belonged to Tremor can be found below.

Rain - Tremor Bio
Rain is an assassin working freelance. He was once a member of the Lin Kuei along with Sub-Zero, but left the clan under mysterious circumstances. Years later, Rain is found working for Shao Kahn as an assassin in the Outworld. Born a human, he finds himself questioning his loyalty towards Kahn after watching the invasion of Earth.
