Mortal Kombat isn't widely available in Japan due to its extreme violence and gore, which clash with Japanese cultural norms and stricter video game content regulations.

Mortal Kombat is too violent for Japanese taste, plain and simple.

The game's ultra-violent Fatalities don't sit well with Japanese censorship laws, so it's not officially released there.
