The father and creator of the Mortal Kombat series, Ed Boone, tweeted a post with the official release date for the next animated film Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the realms, which is the sequel to the previous film Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge.
Thus, the new animated film will be released both in digital format and in physical media on August 31 this year. In addition, the same release date had already been leaked before, but no one could say for sure whether it was true or not. But since Ed Boone himself confirmed it, there can be no doubt that this date is accurate.
