In a game series where fan theories create characters, and each game is generally full of secrets & easter eggs, the original Mortal Kombat trilogy has recently been discovered to be hiding yet another set of secrets within! So what’s the secret? Hidden menus unlocked by specific button presses. After a swift series of taps on the P1 & P2 block buttons the menu will appear, offering a variety of simple, but interesting options, and they span all three of the original arcade games, as well as Ultimate MK3.
Youtube channel YourMKArcadeSource has released this video featuring the codes, and menus which is perfect for those of us that don’t happen to have easy access to these classic cabinets.
The menus known as “EJB Menus,” would appear to be named after Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed J. Boon. Boon himself has previously stated that there are secrets still hidden in his games, so were these menus what he meant? Or is there another mystery still hiding in the decades old arcade classics?
