Mortal Kombat: Legacy hits November 8

Nine-episode Web series collected for Blu-ray anthology later this year at a $20 price point; 30 minutes of bonus features included.

by

This week's arrival of Freddy Krueger as a downloadable character for Mortal Kombat might mark the end of the announced add-ons for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 fighter, but franchise fans with a taste for more gore still have something on the horizon. Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment still has the Arcade Kollection debuting in the coming months, and Warner Premiere today announced a Blu-ray debut for its Mortal Kombat: Legacy Web series.

Jax is just one of the characters featured in Legacy.

Set for release November 8, the Mortal Kombat: Legacy Blu-ray includes all nine episodes of the live-action series, as well as an extra 30 minutes of bonus content, including interviews and behind-the-scenes clips. The package also includes featurettes dedicated to the series' fights, weapons, super powers, and unabashed Mortal Kombat fanatic/director Kevin Tancharoen.

The Web series focuses on a small number of characters in each episode, with spotlighted characters including Sub-Zero, Scorpion, Raiden, Cyrax, Sektor, Johnny Cage, Kitana, Mileena, Jax, Sonya, and Kano. The Blu-ray will launch with a $20 price tag attached.

I watched the first couple of episodes, but then the game came out and I never bothered with the rest.

$20 for a Blu-Ray video of nine eight-minute episodes of live action short skids that all ends with cliffhanging endings and a 30-minute footages of the ppl making those nine episodes. I would buy it had I not already seen all of them for free online. Though add in episode 10 (whoever the hell it's about) as a disc exclusive episode and a preview of what to expect for season 2 (a teaser, a trailer, an intro, etc.) and I will surely check it out.

Nine episodes... 10 minutes each? 90 minutes, right? And thirty minutes of extra footage? About the same extra features as any big hollywood movie nowadays. This sounds like a very good deal. I loved what I saw. I'll have to buy this.

Really don't see much of a reason for me to get it, but I, at the same time, am hoping that it gets a lot of support for the next season and finally lead to a full blown movie.

I'll definitely pick this up, hopefully if it sells well we'll get a movie sometime in the future.

@ Ikouze There was never going to be a second season. All that was planned were the nine episodes.
