The first trailer for the Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge animated feature has been released, revealing the first look at MK's new animation style and plot! Watch it here and read on for more details:
The 96 second trailer features the classic tournament plot from the original game, which was most recently retold and revised for the 2011 reboot, which Legends appears to take cues from. Shang Tsung hosts fighters from Earthrealm in the clip, which features classic heroes Raiden, Liu Kang, Sonya Blade, and Johnny Cage, as well as hostile representatives of Outworld: Goro, Reptile, Kitana, and the Tarkatan horde!
Patrick Seitz stars as Scorpion, whose titular revenge appears to take him from his rebirth after death in the Netherrealm, to his time pursuing Sub-Zero and serving the machinations of Quan Chi during the Mortal Kombat tournament. Character designs pay homage to Mortal Kombat X, with a clear focus on Scorpion's origins, but how much of his classic revenge plot and its revelations will play out in the feature remains to be seen.
IGN hosts the exclusive first-look trailer, with confirmation of an R rated release coming to blu-ray, DVD, and digital in Spring 2020. What do you think of the first Warner Bros Animation outing?
