Mortal Kombat 1 Revives Sektor’s Popular Finishing Move with Expectedly Gruesome Outcomes
Totally nailed it.
NetherRealm Studios recently showcased fresh gameplay footage for the highly anticipated fighting game Mortal Kombat 1, and within it unveiled the comeback of a beloved finishing move that fans adore.
If you're a fan of the Mortal Kombat series, you might already know about Sektor's Fatality move from Mortal Kombat 3 released in 1995. During this move, the red cyber ninja known as Sektor opens his chest to reveal a powerful device called the Compactor, which then crushes his opponent, resulting in a gruesome display of bones and blood.
The character Sektor emerges victorious in a Mortal Kombat battle. The tweet includes a hashtag for Mortal Kombat and a mention of a Fatality move. The tweet also includes a dragon and blood drop emoji.
After almost three decades, the Compactor Fatality of the character Sektor makes a comeback in Mortal Kombat 1. In a recently released video by NetherRealm, showcasing a high-level match between Smoke and the new character Li Mei, we witness a new version of Sektor's Compactor Fatality, although the outcome remains recognizable.
Although Sektor is not a playable character in Mortal Kombat 1 and is only available as an assist fighter like Kameo, he is still able to perform a Fatality. One of his notable choices is the Compactor Fatality, which is both humorous and surprising, while also paying homage to the nostalgia of Mortal Kombat's past.
