In two weeks fans will set sail for Shang Tsung's Island when Warner Brothers' first MK animated feature receives its digital release. The journey begins all over again in a new preview clip from Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge which shows the first meeting of Earthrealm's heroes. Watch:
Joel McHale (Community) stars as the aloof actor and martial artist Johnny Cage, with Jordan Rodrigues as Shaolin champion Liu Kang, Jennifer Carpenter as determined soldier Sonya Blade, and David B. Mitchell as the guiding protector god Raiden.
The scene recreates a legendary moment in Mortal Kombat mythology, when Earthrealm's heroes first met aboard Shang Tsung's Nethership on their way to compete in the Mortal Kombat tournament. The animated feature draws faithfully from established canon with liberal reference to the recent Mortal Kombat (2011) reboot retelling. Warner Bros have released an official synopsis [below], but how this story will end remains to be seen.
Based on the worldwide hit game created by Ed Boon & John Tobias, Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge spotlights the once-in-a-generation tournament between the champions of Outworld and Earthrealm – a competition that will ultimately determine the fate of Earth and all its citizens. Lord Raiden, protector of Earthrealm, must gather the greatest fighters of his realm to defend it from the evil Shang Tsung in the battle to end all battles - Mortal Kombat!
As the title suggests; Scorpion's Revenge will aso focus on the transformation of Hanzo Hasashi into the vengeful ninja spectre who haunts the Mortal Kombat tournament. Catch a glimpse of his tale in a bloody Scorpion's Revenge Red Band Trailer.
