This final battle will play a key role in determining the fate of all of the realms with the winner taking control of them all.

This leaves one option: a final Mortal Kombat tournament for the future of Earthrealm – win it or lose everything. Raiden’s elite fighters Liu Kang, Johnny Cage, Sonya Blade, and a few new faces kick the action into overdrive as they go head-to-head with Outworld’s most bloodthirsty warriors. The stakes could not be higher. But deep in the Netherrealm, an unspeakable scheme by the malevolent Shinnok unfolds, threatening to obliterate existence as we know it. The universe is watching, and it’s winner take all!”
