Warner Bros. been working on big things with Mortal Kombat for a few years now. It’s the franchise’s 30th anniversary this year after all. However, while everyone would love to see a Mortal Kombat or Injustice game out of NetherRealm this year, we’re at least getting more Mortal Kombat movies. Warner Bros. Just announced another Mortal Kombat animated movie, Snow Blind, and this one features kombatants like Kenshi, Kano, Sub-Zero, and more.
Warner Bros. Entertainment revealed Mortal Kombat Legends: Snow Blind in a YouTube trailer on August 10, 2022. The new movie focuses on an Outworld story, and specifically Kenshi. A daring warrior who wishes to be the greatest fighter ever, Kenshi puts his skills to the test when Kano, flanked by Kabal and Erron Black, comes to Outworld for a hostile takeover. Unfortunately, Kenshi also dabbles in forbidden powers and loses his sight as a result, forcing him to train to fight without being able to see. He also gains his mystical sword, which allows him to sense his enemies in a supernatural way.
Kenshi was a fan-favorite character from Mortal Kombat X, but didn’t return for Mortal Kombat 11. Even so, his origin story should be interesting. It is the second of Warner Bros.’ animated feature films. Entertainment as Mortal Kombat Legends, the prequel being Scorpion’s Revenge and telling the story of his intense rivalry with Sub-Zero and parts of the first Mortal Kombat tournament. With this one now diving deeper into characters like Kano, Kenshi, and Sub-Zero, it will be interesting to see how it continues to flesh out Mortal Kombat lore on its 30th anniversary.
Of course, it will also be interesting to see how Shaggy and Scorpion return to it in the opening credits, as has been the tradition on a few Warner Bros. movies. now. Stay tuned as we expect an official release date for Mortal Kombat Legends: Snow Blind later this year.
