The Bridge, as it's simply called, is another urban area turned into an arena and it is located in a city somewhere on Earth, and normally it is a regular city bridge found in every city and other populated urban areas on the planet. It first appeared in Mortal Kombat 3.
True to its name, the Bridge is a barren city bridge with wind constantly howling in the background and papers flying about. And it is all happening during Shao Kahn's invasion of Earthrealm. The Bridge leads to another arena, the Street.
This area was inspired by Wacker Drive in Chicago.
In Mortal Kombat (2011), a new 3D design of the Mortal Kombat 3 arena appears. In the background, there is no sunset. A new design of the background is morning or daylight. Also shown is a large monster destroying a building, as well as a flying dragon chasing a boat. A billboard displaying an advertisement for Johnny Cage's film Ninja Mime is also viewable. This arena can be seen in the background of Chicago.
- Originally, artist Tony Goskie had designed three road repairs for the background of the Bridge in Mortal Kombat 3. Ultimately, they were later removed.
