The Sweepstakes Edition variant (See Variant Tab) came with a double sided poster that acted as half poster, half clip-off entry form. The cases had a sticker on the back of the shrinkwrap calling it out.

Sweepstakes Variant – Sticker on Back, Poster Inside



  • A release that started the Mortal Kombat Franchise down a divisive, experimental path. Rather than the typical one-on-one fighting games, character story arcs were expanded upon in action or adventure games. While Sub-Zero and later Special Forces were plagued with horrible reviews, there is no arguing that the later generation release of Shaolin Monks proved the experiment a success. This then acted as a stepping stone that would allow the eventual fighting game sequels amazing mini-games that included puzzle, RPG, Action RPG, and deeper optional play modes.
  • Quan-Chi was still an unknown, somewhat still developing character when this was released. His persona and mannerisms are a bit more laid back here than they are in the more serious fighting game sequels.
  • Similar to the Sweepstakes release of Maximum Force, but with a funny twist. With Maximum Force, you had to go to the arcade, play the game to answer questions about certain secret rooms, and then send all that information back to Midway for your Entry. With Sub-Zero, all you had to do was send them your contact information.
