Mortal Kombat: Legacy show to get tie in game from NetherRealm – report

Tuesday, 30th July 2013 09:30 GMT By Dave Cook

Mortal Kombat developer NetherRealm Studios is said to be working on a new entry to the series that will tie in to the Legacy live-action series. The game was mentioned casually by Legacy’s producer Lance Sloane in an interview.

Speaking with GamerHub.TV, Sloane said, “Well, we’ve been in greenlight committee for a while at the studio and we’ve got a great script. And we’ve got a great director with Kevin Tancharoen, who is on board.

“It’s just figuring out the business side of it and when we would do it and when we would launch it and how do we sync up with the launch of the game that they’re working on now. It’s not 100% yet, but we’re getting closer every day.”

So could we be looking at one of those “Watch the show of the game, play the game of the show” transmedia affairs in the next Mortal Kombat? What do you think?

Thanks StrategyInformer.

    I don’t think he’s implying that. MK9 came out with first season of Legacy and they had no relation whatsoever. They are just trying to have the web-series finished by the time MK10 comes out (Which based on MK9′s following, can’t possibly even be related to Legacy).

    @1 just speaking in theoretical to get some chat going :)

    It could even be something basic like DLC skins from the show and such.

    @Dave
    True :)
    I’m just trying to distance the game from Legacy because I REALLY want MK10 to follow MK9′s story. I mean, they pretty much killed every popular MK characters in that tale!

    @3 They did yeah :D I’ll be keen to see how the game turns out. They surely won’t just re-make MK9 and add a few new characters. I reckon it’ll be something pretty substantial.

    True. It HAS to be substantial, other wise MK might return to the MKA slump. They should have a full netherrealm invasion with Scorpion and Quan Chi while also re-introduced MK4 and 5 characters and hopefully, giving us a few decent new ones (No more Kobras, Mocaps, Tavens and Daegons).
