Cage Match, the new title in the animated series Mortal Kombat Legends, now has an official cover art and release date!
As you can see in the image above, the cover shows the film’s protagonist, Johnny Cage, in one of his famous superhero star poses! Los Angeles’ tall buildings rise behind him, and amidst some ominous clouds, we see the Mortal Kombat logo!
More interesting, however, are the two other characters accompanying him: Ashrah and Kia.
Ashrah is a demon from the Netherrealm who hunts other demons with a manipulative sword known to her as Kriss. Kia is one of the assassins in Quan Chi’s service, part of the trio composed by Jataaka, Sareena, and Kia herself.
Here’s a recap of the synopsis:
“A sinister secret society” probably references the Brotherhood of Shadows. Kia is part of the group, while Ashrah left around the time she found the Kriss. In the Original Timeline, that is. If the film follows this backstory, we might see Kia (and Jataaka, who’s also in the cast) hunting down Johnny while Ashrah tries to protect him. Possibilities!
This is the first time Ashrah appears since Mortal Kombat: Armageddon, which is very exciting for fans like me! She’s portrayed by Kelly Hu, who’s going to appear at the San Diego Comic-Con Mortal Kombat 1 panel later today. Could this mean she will reprise the role in the game?!
Mortal Kombat Legends: Cage Match releases on October 17, 2023.
