Mortal Kombat is getting it's next live action film later this week and to celebrate, we're diving deep into why Mortal Kombat Matters to gaming, culture, and well, court cases. This episode we talk about how MK became one of the largest fighting games in the world, competing directly with Japanese fighting games and how it rose to outselling long-lasting franchises Street Fighter and Tekken. Made by a four-person team, Mortal Kombat Matters because of it's palette switches (and roster), it's unique take on game art by digitizing real actors,  and of course the fatalities. And we do it all with the help of CJ from Into the Spider-Cast.
