Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance is a fighting game developed and produced by Midway. It is chronologically the fifth in the gory, controversial Mortal Kombat series (with the logo resembling a V, the roman numeral for 5). Deadly Alliance was released for the Xbox, PlayStation 2, GameCube, and Game Boy Advance on November 20, 2002. The game focuses on the alliance between sorcerers Quan Chi and Shang Tsung, and their schemes to revive an ancient army and control Outworld. Deadly Alliance was the first all-new Mortal Kombat fighting game produced exclusively for home consoles, with no preceding arcade release. The game's tagline was "A Fight So Brutal - So Evil - So Deadly".
