Out of all the games that we expected to see remade in Unreal Engine 4, we’ll be honest – Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero is around the bottom of the list.
When it initially released for Nintendo 64 and PlayStation in the 90s, the platformer-spun-off-from-a-fighting-game failed to impress us. Still, that didn’t stop AG 3D Art and his brother from attempting to remake the game with Unreal Engine 4, as you can see from the video below.
No, it’s not the whole game, but rather the training area, the Shaolin Temple stage, and the boss fight with Scorpion.
There’s no word yet if the team plans to make any additional levels within the game, as it really depends on how well received this one is. After all, it is Mythologies and not, you know, Shaolin Monks.
Still, judging by the video below, it does look like a pretty impressive feat for a janky game, and players can choose either to play the demo for themselves with a joystick or keyboard, so it’s nice to have the option available. And what’s more, you aren’t just stuck playing as Sub-Zero. If you’re feeling daring enough, you can give Ermac a try as well. (No word on Scorpion, but we’re pretty sure his spear would come in handy.)
Check out the demo for yourself here and then watch the video below to relive one of the 90s’ most curious games.
