Mortal Kombat 3 (NES, Hummer Team)
|Mortal Kombat 3|
This game has unused playable characters.
Mortal Kombat 3 is Hummer Team's take on porting the original game to the NES. This game is probably best known for having some strange music choices such as the theme from the first Superman movie and a track from James Cameron's Titanic film.
The game contains some leftovers from Shin Samurai Spirits 2: Haohmaru Jigokuhen. To access them, under address 00B6/00B7, change the value to 07 for Cham-Cham or 08 for Mizuki. Cham-Cham glitches the game out but her palette data and name still remain in the code. Mizuki is more functional but is just a clone of Kano that's using her name and palette. Several of his/her attacks can cause the game to act strange.
Values 09 to 0E still contain Mortal Kombat II Special data but the only thing that remains is the palette data:
- 09 - Baraka
- 0A - Scorpion
- 0B - Raiden
- 0C - Goro
- 0D - Shao Kahn
- 0E - Invisible Reptile
Graphics for an exit option exist in the ROM. Only the 'E', 'X', and 'T' are unused; the 'I' is from the options graphic which can easily fit in with the unused tiles.
Kart Fighter ending music
Track 4 - Kart Fighter Ending Music
The Kart Fighter ending music can be found in the NSF and was not used anywhere in the game. It's likely this was just a leftover from Shin Samurai Spirits 2: Haohmaru Jigokuhen.
If you press Up, Up, Up, Down, Down, Down, Left, Right on the options screen, a screen with Taiwan Shin-Shin Electronics' and KaSheng's/NT's logos will appear.
Ultimate Mortal Kombat 4
Changes the title screen and adds more clones. There's also a different copyright screen here which can be accessed by pressing Right, Right, Right, Left, Left, Left in the options menu.
Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3
Title screen hack based on Ultimate Mortal Kombat 4 that adds even more clones. Pressing Start takes the player right away to the character select screen, leaving the menu and copyright logo completely unused (the coding for the options menu still exists in the ROM; changing the value to 0B while the title screen is up displays a cursor that goes through 5 options just like the original options screen).
Mortal Kombat 4
A smaller revision of Ultimate Mortal Kombat 4 (256 KB instead of 384 KB) with less clones that removes Nightwolf's, Kano's and Sub-Zero's graphics and only contains 3 stages. Nightwolf is now a broken palette swap of Shao Kahn, Kano is a palette swap of Liu Kang (inaccessible; use the address mentioned above and change the value to 02 to access him), Sub-Zero (inaccessible; under value 03) is now a palette swap of Stryker who uses Sub-Zero's moves.
Interesting enough, starting at address B900 there's a list of names, some appear to be references to Hummer Team's Titenic:
