Mortal Kombat: Legacy, the online web series debuted on youtube last Tuesday, and since it has collectively received over 5 million views on youtube. The series has been praised by many as a glorious return to the series’ mature presentation, and has given the Mortal Kombat a more realistic approach to the characters, changing many aspects of the storyline, but fans reception so far seems like they don’t seem so mind much, many actually embracing it.

Digital Distribution. “We couldn’t be more pleased with the reception it’s received. This is truly a testament to the quality of the series and the ongoing popularity of the Mortal Kombat characters and franchise.”
