DescriptionBased on the Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance engine, players once again have to fight to stop this new threat in the sixth installment of the fighting series. The standard Arcade, Versus, and Practice modes return, as well as new items to be found in the Krypt. In addition, there are new Konquest Adventure, Chess Kombat, and Puzzle Kombat modes to give the player new mini-games.
There are a dozen Mortal Kombat fighters selectable at the start of the game, including both old favorites and mysterious newcomers. Longtime fans of the series will recognize veterans of the earliest Mortal Kombat games, such as Sub-Zero and Scorpion, Kabal, Baraka, Mileena, Ermac, and Nightwolf, who are joined by relative newcomers like Bo'Rai Cho, who debuted in Deadly Alliance. The game also introduces nine new fighters, Ashrah, Dairou, Darrius, Havik, Hotaru, Kira, Shujinko, Onaga, and Kobra, each with a distinctly new fighting style intended to balance the deadly abilities of the other characters.
The Playstation 2 and Xbox versions offer online, competitive play against other players. The Gamecube version does not include online play, but offers Goro and Shao Kahn as exclusive playable characters.

The Press Says
There are currently no topics for this game.
Character NamesThe names of two characters in Mortal Kombat: Deception, Hotaru and Shujinko, somehow refer to their character when looking at the original Japanese meaning: Hotaru translates to Japanese as "firefly" (his armor suit is modelled after an exoskeleton of a firefly) and Shujinko translates to Japanese as "main hero" or "protagonist" (he is the main hero of the game).
GameCube ReleaseThe Nintendo GameCube version was released five months after the PlayStation 2 and Xbox versions. This was during a time when Midway was trying to decide if they would continue supporting the GameCube with new software. Obviously, they did. Although it sold well on PS2 and Xbox it didn't do very well on GC, which is unfortunate because according to Midway the sales of the game were going to decide Midway's future support for Nintendo.
HavikIf Havik is knocked of the Sky Temple arena's Death Trap, he screams "Aaahh! Man, this is gonna suck!" This line was later given to Taven in Mortal Kombat: Armageddon.
NightwolfNightwolf uses a fighting style called Val Tudo. The name of the martial art is actually misspelled, it's supposed to be Vale Tudo.
