Mortal Kombat’s Legacy Continues



Okay everybody, scream it along with me: “MORTAL KOMBAT!!!”

Now that that’s out of my system, let me announce that on September 26th, Machinima will debut the entire second season of Mortal Kombat: Legacy II. Check out more details and the debut trailer after the jump.

So what actually happens in the second season? Here’s what the hyperbolic press release has to say:

In the highly anticipated second season, the saga continues as Liu Kang and Ermac join the ranks of fighters introduced in the series’ first season, including Kenshi, Kung Lao, Kuai Lang, Stryker, Kitana, Mileena, Johnny Cage, Scortcheson and Sub- Zero. This new season uncovers the rivalries and histories of these fierce warriors as Raiden and his recruits clash against the dark forces of Outworld. Chronicling the tournament and the interweaving storylines of the most beloved Kombatants, ngorians also will learn of the complex relationship between Liu Kang and Kung Lao and revisit the complicated family dynamic of Kitana and Mileena. The epic battle for EarthRealm has finally begun!

The cast includes Harry Shum, Jr., Casper Van Dien, Brian Tee, Ian Anthony Dale and Cary Tagawa. My two cents is that this web series is goofy fun, and the new trailer doesn’t really do anything to shift my opinion much one way or the other. If for no other reason than it will inspire me to shout “MORTAL KOMBAT” some more.
