The warriors of Earthrealm and Outworld will do battle in a final tournament to end all tournaments in Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms, but this time the stakes are much bigger than the two warring sides. This time the battle will decide the fate of all worlds! Watch the first exciting trailer for the upcoming animated feature:

Liu Kang (Jordan Rodrigues) strides into the koliseum to confront Shao Kahn (Fred Tatasciore) in the opening seconds of the trailer. He is the chosen one, a pure soul watched over by the gods since birth, but to obtain victory he'll have to get past Shang Tsung (Artt Butler) and an eclectic assembly of Outworld warriors!

The loose of adaptation of the original plot to Mortal Kombat II looks to be taking plenty of liberties to expand the fighting roster and incorporate more of the cosmic mythology of the franchise's later years. Among Outworld's representatives will be later additions to the series: Reiko (Robin Atkin Downes), Li Mei, and D'Vorah (Debra Wilson). They'll face animated newcomers Kung Lao (Matt Yang King), Stryker (Matthew Mercer).

The animated sequel to last year's Scorpion's Revenge will also continue the saga of the titular ninja spectre. With his destiny altered by the first film, he undertakes a new mission to secure an ancient kamidogu and prevent the coming of One Being. The trailer teases his fight through Hell, the fury of Shinnok, and the coming of Kuai Liang (Bayardo De Murguia)!

The second Sub-Zero can be seen in official hi-res box art and during the trailer, which previews his quest to avenge his fallen brother, and struggles with cybernetically converted clansmen Sektor (Dave B. Mitchell) and Cyrax.

Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms will officially be released on blu-ray and digital on August 31st!
