    Default Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 for 3DO (Yes, it almost happened)

    and here's the proof.





    Let's take a trip back to Spring of 1996. I was about 15 years old. The 3DO was still here. I made a phone call to 3DO customer service, for I had some questions about when this game was going to be released. The lady over the phone was very kind to me and offered to send me promotional goods related to my question about it, since I almost bought a 3DO but shortly exchanged it for a Sega Saturn at the time of it's price drop of $199.99. This is what she sent me with promotional buttons for the game "STRHAL" for 3DO. I wonder what the game would have turned out like, if it wasn't for Sega taking the spotlight since they had first dibs on UMK3. I'm really happy to find this hat in storage, I thought it had been lost for quite some time, yet I'm thankful it survived
    These cartridges are dirty as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore!

    That's really neat. I remember about ten years ago being in communication on one of the 3do user groups with a former employee of Panasonic Interactive Media USA who had a working beta and copies of all the finished box art and promo stuff for the game. If I recall correctly it was less than 2-3 months from being released, but Panasonic pulled the plug on their US studios and it didn't happen.

    Definitely a cool promo hat, I had no idea that UMK3 was being made for the 3DO. I'm wondering how the controls for UMK3 would have been on the 3DO. Were there any 6 button style controllers besides that oddly shaped Capcom fighter pad?
