Watch the Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge R-rated trailer from Final Kombat

Prior to the Grand Finals at Final Kombat, Mortal Kombat series creator Ed Boon came out to introduce the R-rated trailer for Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge.


Final Kombat weekend has been filled with excitement. But before the tournament's epic climax, there was one more piece of business to take care of. Mortal Kombat series creator Ed Boon came out to help introduce an all-new R-rated trailer for animated feature Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge.

Those looking for a Mortal Kombat level of extreme violence will not be disappointed, if the above trailer is any indication. As the title implies, it goes heavily into Scorpion's backstory, illustrating the murder of his family at the hands of the Lin Kuei, led by the original Sub-Zero. Scorpion's quest for vengeance will unfold concurrently with the events of the original Mortal Kombat game, as he gets caught in the middle of Shao Khan's quest to conquer Earthrealm and the journey of Earth's chosen heroes: Liu Kang, Sonya Blade, and Johnny Cage.

Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge is set to release on digital platforms on April 12, with a Blu-Ray and 4K Ultra HD release set for April 28.

Boon also teased further surprises for Mortal Kombat in the months ahead, promising that support for MK11 is not over just yet. Whether that takes the form of a new Kombat Pack or any other new characters remains to be seen. In the meantime, Spawn is up next to round out the first Kombat Pack and he'll be ready in just two weeks.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
