...until Midway went bankrupt and [[Creator/WarnerBrosInteractiveEntertainment Warner Bros.]] promptly picked up the studio that produces the series (now known as [[Creator/NetherrealmStudios NetherRealm Studios]]). The end result: a complete {{continuity reboot}} (with an in-game explanation, no less) in [=2.5D=]. ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9'' was not only a critical and commercial smash, but also earned a spot as one of the featured titles at the Evo Championship Series, a first for a ''Mortal Kombat'' title. A sequel known as ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX'' was released on April 2015 with high praise. Starting with the NetherRealm games they added horror film characters as ''[[GuestFighter]]''s.

* BittersweetEnding: The current timeline ends with the heroes managing to defeat Shinnok and save both Earth Realm and Outworld form his clutches, however, [[spoiler: Raiden is corrupted from repairing the Jinsei, making him more of a KnightTemplar than he had been before, pretty much all of the revenants except for Jax, Scorpion/Hanzo, and Sub-Zero are doomed to stay that way since Hanzo couldn't wait just a little longer to get his revenge against Quan Chi, Liu Kang and Kitana are now the rulers of the Netherrealm and but for Raiden's intervention, would seek to conquer Earth Realm, and Erron Black is still running free and may or may not have killed Jax.]] Even with all of this, it's tons better than the original timeline's outcome.

** If that's still not enough, you pull them across Kung Lao's hat buzzsaw-style, or attach what can only be described as an Instant Rack to them, which dismembers all four limbs and head and lets the limbs hang there (Scarecrow, indeed), or for a little FanDisservice, watch Mileena pleasure herself after eating the head of her opponent. Watch that and try to sleep.

* MultipleEndings: For each character. Most of them contradicted each other, to the point where figuring out the official canon is a massive undertaking; to some fans, it's just easier to ignore the endings that contradict one another and see what's left. In the past, all you had to do was go by Liu Kang's ending. But well... he's kinda KilledOffForReal. [[spoiler:Well, he's ''technically'' BackFromTheDead, but he's a zombie slave of Quan Chi's for most of the game, so it doesn't really count. And at the end, he and Kitana are still undead revenants, but they have taken control of Outworld.]]

* MajorInjuryUnderreaction: Characters rarely display more than minor annoyance towards such injuries as broken limbs and being impaled by their opponent's weapons, and it's taken to absurd levels with the X-Ray moves of MK9 and MKX. Almost all the X-Ray moves would hideously cripple the victim at best, if not outright murder them in real life.
