'Mortal Kombat' (ALL) Gets Action-Packed Digital Series

by Rainier on Jan. 24, 2011 @ 1:18 a.m. PST

The newest chapter of the fight franchise marks a return to the series' mature presentation and a reinvention of its classic 2D fighting mechanic. Driven by an all-new graphics engine, the Fatality is back, presented in more gory detail than ever before, as well as a number of new gameplay features and a deep story mode.

In addition, Mortal Kombat introduces a number of new game-play features including tag team and the deepest story mode of any fighting game. Players can choose from an extensive lineup of the game’s iconic warriors and challenge their friends in traditional 1 vs. 1 matches, or take on several new game modes.

Mortal Kombat introduces a number of new game modes as well as the most extensive online experience ever seen in a fighting game. Up to 4 players can battle “tag-team”- 2 players can team up in the new “Co-op Arcade Mode” or compete against another team online.

Warner Premiere announced development of a live-action digital series based on the Mortal Kombat videogame franchise.  Directed by Kevin Tancharoen, known for his popular unofficial fan short Mortal Kombat: Rebirth which garnered over 10 million views online, and in conjunction with the upcoming Mortal Kombat videogame, this action-packed, digital series will take gamers deep into the history of warriors they know and love such as Scorpion, Johnny Cage and Liu Kang.  Shooting for the digital series will take place in Vancouver starting in early February.   

Since its debut in 1992, it has spawned four arcade games, 10 console-based videogame titles, two movies (Mortal Kombat and Mortal Kombat: Annihilation), two televisions series (Mortal Kombat: Defenders of the Realm and Mortal Kombat: Conquest) and an animated prequel Mortal Kombat: The Journey Begins.

Available this spring through online digital retailers from Warner Bros. Digital Distribution, the Mortal Kombat digital series is an anthology of multiple live action shorts, each providing never-before-revealed insights into characters featured in the upcoming videogame as well as the game’s universe.  Additional details, including casting, will be announced in the coming weeks.
