Only Two Copies Exist Of This Lost Mortal Kombat Game
The poor sales led to the development of "Mortal Kombat Nitro," an upgraded version of “Mortal Kombat” with all of the blood and gore put back in. James Fink, a product tester at Acclaim, took his ideas to Midway for “Mortal Kombat Nitro” and put together a working prototype of the game, which included new costumes, fatalities, features, and playable bosses.
Unfortunately, Midway quickly shut Fink down, as "Mortal Kombat" creators Ed Boon and John Tobias weren't interested in someone else making an improved version of their game. Consequently, only two copies of "Mortal Kombat Nitro" exist now: one in Fink's possession, and another that Fink gave to Boon (although he isn't sure if Boon still has it).
