Bandit Gaming: Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 In Progress for the Game Boy Color

The Game Boy, and Game Boy Color, got a few games that made gamers go “huh” when they discovered them. One such title was the original Mortal Kombat which hit the salad green Game Boy, Nintendo even censored it just like the Super Nintendo version. Mortal Kombat was a popular one-on-one fighting game series in the arcades and at home on the SNES/Genesis on up to the 32-Bit world of the Sega Saturn and the Sony Playstation. Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 was the last official 2D version of this venerable fighting series (Mortal Kombat 4/Gold went all 3D on us). Thanks to a dedicated fan, Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 will be available for the Game Boy and Game Boy Color.

Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 Game Boy Color Game Hack comparisonMortal Kombat 3 did away with the whole tournament style of the first two games. Instead, in the third game, and its derivitive releases, you are tasked with taking one character against the others and eventually against the lead bad guy. In Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 that lead bad guy is Shao Khan, a guy who is so bad he is defying death and time itself by reviving his long dead bride, Sindel. Not only is Shao Khan pulling a religious event out of his back pocket but he is also mounting an invasion of Earthrealm- take that Napoleon, Khan just upped the ante.
