Watch: First Impressive 'Mortal Kombat: Legacy' Web Short Debuts
Warner Bros has debuted the first episode in a new 9-part webseries called Mortal Kombat: Legacy bringing one of the best video game franchises back to the (small) screen again. The short, in all 12-minute high def glory, debuted on Machinima's YouTube and can be seen in its entirety below. Kevin Tancharoen who directed and produced the popular, unofficial Mortal Kombat: Rebirth fan short, is bringing the same immersive directing style to this live-action digital series. It was that gritty short that got them to greenlight this and bring back some fighters like Jax, Kano and Sonya Blade. It's time for the return of Mortal Kombat!
