We all are well aware of the Mortal Kombat franchise. The game initially came out as an arcade game and was quickly ported to almost all existing consoles at the time such as the Sega Genesis. The game currently exists on almost all handheld consoles as a retro game. Mortal Kombat saw many subsequent sequels such as the trilogy released in 1996 and Mortal Kombat 3 in 1995. Today, we caught the news that Mortal Kombat Trilogy Nintendo 64 and Mortal Kombat 3 Source Code has leaked online.
Mortal Kombat Trilogy Nintendo 64 and Mortal Kombat 3 Source Code Has Leaked
Owing to the fact that it is strictly illegal to share any of the source files or the links to the source files with you, we can’t actually show you but a simple google search will confirm that Mortal Kombat 3 Source Code along with Mortal Kombat Trilogy has in fact leaked online.
This leak does open up interesting prospects for independent modders and programmers who may want to tinker with the source code and develop something different out of it. Potentially, such programmers could improve on the textures and even introduce new characters.
It is safe to assume that Warner Bros is not having a good time right now as they are the ones who own the rights to Mortal Kombat currently. However, who knows we might get some custom games out of the leak which would indeed be illegal but it might happen.
Anyway, what modders choose to do with the leaked source code is entirely up to them. We , as MK fans want to keep on receiving new collections on current consoles as well as the next gen.
This is all for now, let us know what you think about the leak down in the comments below.
