I wrote an article for this and it got deleted. Now I’m mad. Video past the break.
The latest episode of Mortal Kombat: Legacy has gone live, featuring a whole slew of new characters – Kitana, Mileena, Shao Kahn, Queen Sindel AND Baraka – and our first look at director Kevin Tancharoen’s interpretation of Edenia. The episode is set outside of the “real world” entirely, and has quite a few animation sequences (most likely because of budget constraints). Despite looking extremely cheap (more so than past episodes), I think the epic scope they’re setting up is really admirable (and fun!).
Tancharoen who directed and produced the popular, unofficial “Mortal Kombat: Rebirth” fan short that garnered over 10 million views worldwide, is bringing the same immersive directing style to this live-action digital new media series. Fans will be able to delve deep into the history of the warriors they know and love including “Sub-Zero” and “Scorpion.”
