Days ago we learned that not only a live-action movie by Mortal Kombat was in production, but also an animated movie, Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge, that would tell the story of the game with the help of acclaimed Warner Bros. illustrations. Today its release date was defined with an impressive trailer.
Warner Bros. announced that the animated movie of Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge will release on April 12 in digital format, while on the 28th of that month it will be available on Blu-ray (4K Ultra and HD Combo Pack) and DVD.
“Once a generation, the finest warriors must do battles to decide the fate of their realm,” explains Shang Tsung, host of the tournament, at the beginning of the trailer that the company shared. Thus, Raiden and company will have to fight for the Earth, because, if the inhabitants of Outworld and Shang Tsung, commanded by Shao Kahn, win, this planet would cease to exist.
