When the series was first launched back in the 1990s, one of the things Mortal Kombat was noted for was its use of digitized footage of real people in place of hand-drawn sprites. This eventually made some of these actors familiar names among the hardcore MK fans.

Now, at the 2018 Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2) the cast of Mortal Kombat 2 got together for a panel to talk about working on the games. The panel features Ho Sung Pak (Liu Kang), Rich Divizio (Baraka), Carlos Pesina (Raiden), Daniel Pesina (Johnny Cage, Sub-Zero, Scorpion, Reptile, and Smoke), John Parrish (Jax), Katalin Rodriguez Ogden (Kitana, Mileena, and Jade), and Dr. Phillip Ahn (Shang Tsung).

For those who missed out on the panel, tabmok99 was able to record the entirety of it and share it onto YouTube. For fans of the series, it’s a great way to learn more about its early days, and about the old-school arcade scene in general.
