Apparently the new version of the software has hit several arcades in the Chicago area. Diversions and Dennis' Place were the only 2 we heard reports about, but other arcades in that vicinity may have the upgrade as well (call your local arcade for details). Here are some of the highlights:

- The 3 middle question marks on the character select screen are
now filled by Noob Saibot, Jax, & Johnny Cage respectively (Perhaps there will be no UKKs this time around?)
- The damage for many combos has been reduced substantially (by 50% in some cases)
- "Side-step" has been added allowing players to move in 3D ever so slightly (motion unclear and will be announced later)
- Goro's Lair has rocks scattered about and players can pick them up (like they would a weapon - D+RUN) to throw at their opponent
- Computer AI has been made more difficult
- "Danger" has been added (when you only have a sliver of life left)
- Character Bios are now in the game; we should have them all for you
as soon as we can get them
- Shinnok is now at the top of every tower (could this mean he will be the boss character?)
- Still no endings
- Match up screens for 2 player mode are in and the Kombat Kode boxes are there as well (not as many symbols this time around)
- Sub-Zero has a new staff-like weapon and supposedly when other characters use it, they can freeze their opponent.
- Apparently characters can throw their weapons at their opponents causing considerable amounts of damage if not blocked
