Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance Spoilers
We've put together a list of spoilers from Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance. Read at your own risk.
  • The characters that  must be unlocked in the Krypt are Kitana, Cyrax, Raiden, Frost, Jax, Hsu Hao, Nitara , Reptile, and Drahmin. As shown in recent pictures there are 21 available spots on the main menu and the menu has changed to a 3x7 grid as opposed to the 10x2 grid shown in our E3 coverage.
  • Each character has one alternate costume that you can unlock. Scorpion shows off his flaming skull. Johnny Cage sports his tuxedo. Sonya's wears a military dress uniform. Jax's is something out of the hood, and wears a  backwards baseball cap with a MK medallion around his neck. Kitana's outfit is a purple bodysuit with stockings and boots up to her thighs. Kano's is an updated version of his original white Mortal Kombat uniform.
  • Reptile bleeds green; Cyrax bleeds black.
  • During a match you can embed weapons into your opponent which will make you lose the weapon for the rest of the round (but not the entire match). When a player gets stabbed, they slowly lose health. Sub-Zero's Kori Blade and Kitana's Steel Fans can both be embedded. This embedding is blockable, however the fighter loses those weapons for the remainder of the round as well.
  • The Krypt is comprised of 676 Koffins, each marked with a two-letter code, AA through ZZ, in a 26x26 grid. Some of the things you can unlock are alternate costumes, new characters, and photos and bios of the MK team. Some of the less exciting Koffins contain pictures of the MK2 board, the MK Gold logo, and worst of all, there are empty Koffins.
  • For the most part, the team members' initials are their photos and a short bio of what they did--EB is Ed Boon, JV is John Vogel, CP is Carlos Pesina. Koffins FX through HL are panels of the original Mortal Kombat comic book written by John Tobias, that was offered for sale in the attract modes of MK and MKII.
  • Konquest mode teaches you each character's moves as well as their story. You can earn Ruby, Sapphire, Jade, and Gold koins. Onyx and Platinum are won in Test Your Might and Test Your Sight. Konquest mode will also let you fight against secret/unlocked characters before you have unlocked them and will show your alternate costume during each character's last battle. (Difference in arcade mode, it's just a palette swap)
  • There are some in-jokes to keep an eye out for. For example: While speaking in an Australian accent (shades of Trevor Goddard from the first movie?), Kano encourages you to "hit him in the goskies" and "in the pesina" as well as to "vogel him good" during the Konquest mode. There are combos called Smash TV  and Total Karnage, games that were developed by Midway.
  • Kitana has a kiss of death Fatality.
  • Special Moves List available at TRMK
    Our friend Patrick McCarron from TRMK was able to attend the latest Cube Tour event in Schaumburg, IL. He has put together a special moves list from the uncompleted Gamecube version of the game for those who might be able to attend a later Cube Tour event.
