It is time for Mortal Kombat to come at us all again as we have another film to look towards here this Spring. No, we are not talking about the still upcoming live-action film that is coming but a nice little animated film that will carry on the story from the 2011 title from NetherRealm Studios. Hopefully, your memory goes back that far and you can dig into all of that. If not, I am sure you will still enjoy Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge as it will be a nice R-rated animated film for the franchise. Something that needs to be there with all of the content and themes the games have almost always kept to. No matter the case, we have the first trailer for the film that will be coming straight to Blu-ray soon.
As you will see, it more or less follows the story we have seen many times over in Mortal Kombat in terms of the basics. While it does sound like it will focus more on Scorpion, as the title alludes to, we will see a lot of the old and new-ish characters will be back. Also with some of the voice actors from Mortal Kombat coming back to reprise roles or take on new ones. Have a look at the trailer below and see what we are going to be waiting for and see if it will be gracing your library soon. I have a feeling that many of the hardcore fans will already be dropping money on all of this. It does look like it could be a fun ride into more of the lore.
