Have you ever wanted to step into the world of Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero and take a look around? Now you can thanks to a promotional 360 image revived by Midway Games developer and documentary maker Josh Tsui. Take a closer look with or without VR:

The unique view shows off the Shaolin Temple stage that appears at the beginning of MK Mythologies: Sub-Zero and as an arena in Mortal Kombat 4. This particular 360 preview originally appeared on the Mythologies promotional website, and was unearthed and posted to the Insert Coin YouTube channel with 4K virtual reality compatibility.

Using the embedded video above you can also pan around the temple by dragging the image in any direction without the use of VR. This allows you to observe details from the floor to the dragon logo on the ceiling!

Released in 1997 for the PlayStation and Nintendo 64 home consoles; Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero was the first attempted spin-off from the main fighting game franchise. It featured the elder Sub-Zero (Bi-Han) as playable protagonist, revealing his backstory as Scorpion's killer, and a pawn in the acquisition of Shinnok's amulet.

Met with mixed reactions, the game is best remembered for its live-action full motion video sequences, and overlap with characters and plotlines featured in the contemporaneous MK4. It continues to be a curiosity in the MK canon.
