There is a new feature-length animated Mortal Kombat movie coming from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. Warner Bros. Animation is once again teaming up with NetherRealm Studios and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment for the follow up to 2020’s Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge.
Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms starts up shortly after the events of Scorpion’s Revenge. The heroes are surrounded by the evil forces of Shao Kahn. Raiden and his warriors are forced to compete in a final Mortal Kombat to determine the fate of the Realms. This time the fight takes them to Outworld as they must defend Earthrealm. Scorpion must also find the ancient Kamidogu before it can be used to resurrect the One Being, which would led to the destruction of all things in the universe.
