Episode 6 of “Mortal Kombat: Legacy,” titled “Raiden,” has come online.
Episode 6, Raiden – Synopsis: The following episode represents director Kevin Tancharoen’s “different take on the Mortal Kombat universe,” combining the perfect amount of gritty realism mixed with a hint of mysticism… When Lord Raiden, God of Thunder and protector of Earth, finds himself in an earthly mental institution in the year 2011, his ‘delusions’ are treated with some rather primitive forms of therapy (involving an ECT machine and an ice pick). Nonetheless, Blue, his beautiful, fragile yet insane fellow inmate, is Raiden’s only hope of escaping the mental hospital and making his way to the Mortal Kombat tournament to defend Earthrealm from Shao Khan.
Mortal Kombat: Legacy is an anthology of nine live action shorts, and brings to life the motivation behind each character’s participation in the Mortal Kombat tournament. Each episode will provide never-before-revealed insights into characters featured in the upcoming videogame as well as the game’s universe.
The episode stars Ryan Robbins as Raiden, Racy Spiridakos as Blue, Peter Hall as Dr Gadsen. Kevin Tancharoen (Fame) directing. [source: Machinima]
