Any gamer who was around in the early '90's remembers how Mortal Kombat for the SNES was censored by Nintendo. Blood removed, fatalities changed. It was beyond disappointing, really. Felt like you weren't getting the complete MK "experience". Kinda like asking for a Walkman for your birthday and getting a portable radio instead. Then Mortal Kombat II came around and it seemed like Nintendo had wisened up. Blood and fatalities intact and everything. However in Japan, it was a totally different story. Along with bright green blood for all the characters, the strangest change was to the fatalities. When a fatality is executed, the screen goes black & white. Kinda reminiscent of old samurai movies, isn't it?
