Storyline

Fighters from Mortal Kombat tournaments from other worlds and dimensions are invading Earth through dimensional tears, using it as their practice ground and for more-sinister purposes. An elite group of highly-trained fighters has been assembled to locate these intrusions and fight off the aliens before Earth is laid waste and its dimensional structure is destroyed.

Trivia

The series was intended as a "sequel" of sorts to the Mortal Kombat (1995) movie (identifiable by the fact that many characters flash back to events that happened during it). However, the second movie, Mortal Kombat: Annihilation (1997), disregards this animated series altogether and serves as a direct sequel. See more »

A good show
19 January 1999 | by (Rosario,Argentina) – See all my reviews

This a very good series. It has action, fun, and a decent storyline. The Story, is based after the movie "Mortal Kombat". The best warriors of earth, must defend us from Shang Tsung and others.
