Last year, Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge introduced fans to a new R-rated animated take on the franchise. Later this summer, Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms will continue the storyline. IGN has premiered the first trailer for Battle of the Realms, and it looks like it is taking its cues from Mortal Kombat II.
Regardless of Earthrealm’s victory in the previous film, Outworld emperor Shao Khan makes one last play. He offers Raiden, Liu Kang, and the rest of Earth’s defenders the chance to prevent all future invasions. However, they will have to defeat Outworld’s deadliest warriors first.
Here’s the official description from Warner Bros. Animation:
“In Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms, our team of heroes is besieged by the enemy forces of Shao Kahn – forcing Raiden and his group of warriors into a deal to compete in a final Mortal Kombat that will determine the fate of the realms. Now our heroes must travel to Outworld in order to defend Earthrealm and, simultaneously, Scorpion must find the ancient Kamidogu before it’s used to resurrect the One Being – which would mean certain destruction of all things in the universe. Time is short and the stakes are high in this action-packed continuation of the Mortal Kombat journey.”
Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms will hit digital, Blu-ray, and 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack on August 31, 2021.
