As revealed last week, a sequel to Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge called Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms is set to release this summer from Warner Bros. Animation in coordination with Mortal Kombat franchise stewards NetherRealm Studios and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. Today, it was announced that the upcoming animated film will officially release on Digital, Blu-ray, and 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack on August 31st. Additionally, the box art for the upcoming title was revealed.
According to the announcement, Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms picks up following the events of Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge and sees the heroes like Johnny Cage, Sonya Blade, and Liu Kang competing in one final Mortal Kombat tournament to determine the fate of Earthrealm. "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," the description reads in part.
