Across the history of the early Mortal Kombat games, which are of course Mortal Kombat 1 to Mortal Kombat Trilogy, one thing that was in common with all of them was the menacing announcer, who was heard in every match with the iconic lines such as "FIGHT!" and "FINISH HIM!", and was also the voice of Shao Kahn in the games after MK1. That voice was of none other then Steve Richie, an acclaimed Pinball and video game designer who worked at the same building that Ed Boon and John Tobias were working on the Mortal Kombat games at, and was asked by them to record these lines for the MK games, from MK2 to MKT, as well as Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks. Richie was also the man who suggested to change the "C" in the term "Combat" to "K", which lead to the creation of the name Mortal Kombat.

Great Big Story has conducted an interview with Richie. In this interview, he talks about his work on the MK games, his work on Pinball machines and more. You can watch the interview right here below:

How did he go deaf? Any source link? He didn't seem like that in the video.

Great Big Story updated the video, I only now saw that they did that, but better late then never. So I've updated the news post, plus corrected a few details in it.

Somehow I missed the story years ago. Truly sad to hear about it. That proves once again that we are all simply human.
