The announcement of Mortal Kombat X has already begun the promotion machine rolling -- kicking things off with a launch trailer soundtrack by tie-in artist Wiz Khalifa. The return of the smash hit games will once again bring live-action kombat to life with Mortal Kombat: Legacy gearing up for a third series!

Mortal Kombat: Legacy II ramped up the live-action web series production with name casting injections of Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, Mark Dacascos & Casper Van Dien. It's the later who is the surprise source of our first decisive confirmation of Legacy III. The Johnny Cage actor tweeting out a photo to mark the beginning of his altitude training.

Mortal Kombat Online will be following progress on the project as information comes to light. You can watch the previous two series, and catch up on all the news as it happened, via our complete kompendiums for Season 1 & Season 2.
