War Gods was also created by Midway itself; some say that the game was solely created to test out a 3D environment in a fighting game for their upcoming MK4 release, but that’s probably just rubbish. The truth of the matter is, Mortal Kombat made a shit-ton of money and it looked like a new franchise could be born from it, but War Gods was just not that franchise: It had some of the wonkiest 3D ever this side of Battle Arena Toshinden, and the fatalities were far from impressive. The sad irony is, the game proved itself to be mortal in the only way it didn't asipre to.
