Is there an arcade mode and is it very difficult?

Hi all, I am looking at getting this game, but mostly for single player only.

I would hate to have to play the story mode over and over again. Is there an arcade mode where I can use my main and beat the last boss type of mode?

Is the hardest difficulty extremely hard? I wouldnt want to breeze through the arcade or story mode easily, and even when I "master" my main I should still feel challenged.

If you are looking for an arcade mode like the old MK. This game has it, which also has Tag team (2 on 2) if you wanna spice some battles up.

There is Expert mode which is very hard! I could only beat Normal with ease! So your answers are:

Yes 1 on 1 and 2 on 2.


However the last boss is sorta "cheap" super armor n very spammy. Like the old school games. But even expert can be beaten by spamming teleports.

I honestly don't find the hardest hard

choose a character, learn himm well and you'll breeze through arcade without dying. Shao kahn has patterns and his special moves are slow.

But I mean, I don't find it hard because I wanted to learn the game and took the time to do so.

The boss is still shao khan?
I hated him in MK triliogy. Never beat it once

I only beat him by rains water ball, mega round house, uppercut. Lol but he isnt AS hard in this game.

Well since its a portable I can prepare/practice more (hopefully the dpad is sturdy)

I say yes and depends on you. I have beaten the arcade on hardest difficulty with my main, but i think i did it because i got so used to him, because with others i got destroyed heh

After a while, shao kahn gets very predictable and is susceptible to juggles. Still very annoying but not nearly as bad as other MKs.
