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 Better Sequel than the Movie Sequel
16 April 1999 | by See all my reviews

Yep, the animated series is actually better than Mortal Kombat: Annihilation. Sad, ain't it? There's more character development, and the idea of Earth being invasion, is explored more deeply than in the movie than inspired this series. Watch the series if you want to see the "true" sequel to the original MK movie.
