When BadBoyBill on the Hyperspin forums found out that the latest (and best one since 2, imo) Mortal Kombat was being released on home consoles only, his task was clear: design and build an arcade cabinet worthy of the name Mortal Kombat.

What he has created is a beautiful homage to an era long passed, when Mortal Kombat ruled the arcades with its striking cabinet designs, and bone-crushing DCS audio systems.
