Mortal Kombat Trilogy is an entry in the Mortal Kombat series, developed and published by Midway. Trilogy is the last of the pre-rendered 2D fighters, with all future sequels being presented in 3D (apart from re-releases). Among other consoles it was released for the Sega Saturn in 1997.

Trilogy is a second update to Mortal Kombat 3, and builds upon the features found in Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. As well as making all the boss characters available to play from the start, it also brings back many fighters and stages from Mortal Kombat and Mortal Kombat II, with various upgrades.

The Sega Saturn port, handled by Point of View is a direct port of the Sony PlayStation version, released a full year later. It is said to be slightly inferior as it lacks many of the transparency effects and several voice samples. It is still considered to be a better version than its Nintendo 64 counterpart, however, which due to cartridge restraints had to axe several important features.

Mortal Kombat Trilogy saw many positive reviews though has been criticised for its many glitches and extreme difficulty.
