Arcade machines are known for their massive size and high price, but if you could get one of those machines, it would defiantly be worth it for long time gamers of the golden days of the Arcades, including old school Mortal Kombat players who grew up playing MK games at the Arcade. But what if you could play an MK game on a small, mobile Arcade machine? Well, it seems it is possible.

Pro MK player and YouTuber Ryan "Ketchup" Neal made a video showcasing a gift that he received, a tiny mini Arcade machine of Mortal Kombat 1 (with a side-render of Scorpion from Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3) created by a company called Basic Fun. And yes, by "tiny", I mean it literally. It is essentially a handheld console in a shape of an Arcade machine. It is completely stand-alone, doesn't plug into anything and is battery-powered. The machine comes with a small Arcade stick and 6 buttons, with the Block button receiving two buttons that can be pressed for it (they are both located next to each other) and this port of MK1 is the Sega Genesis port of the game, as the graphics and soundtrack of the game indicate this. Obviously, you can't play against other players on this, but you can still play all 7 of MK1 characters in the full Arcade mode, along with the Reptile secret match, Endurance matches, Boss matches against Shang Tsung and Goro, and the Test Your Might mini game.

Check out Ketchup's video right here.

A very interesting port indeed which would be a nice addition to the collections of MK fans. If you're interested to find more about Basic Fun and their port of MK1, click here.
