With a title in tow, the eagerly anticipated live-action anthology series is fast approaching! Kevin Tancharoen is the much talked about director of Mortal Kombat: Legacy, which released its first preview clip yesterday, and has delivered yet another weekly snapshot of the world that awaits!

There's nothing mysterious about this shot, depicting the innovative new look for one of Mortal Kombat's most enduring icons, Sub-Zero! The Lin Kuei warrior was previously hinted at in shots from the same episode [full story], which is expected to see the unfolding famous confrontation between he and Shirai-Ryu nemesis, Scorpion!

Kevan Ohtsji stars in relevant episodes as the ice wielding cryomancer [via Latino Review], opposite Ian Anthony Dale as Scorpion. The pair are destined to meet in a fatal encounter per the best known plot from the games, which tells of Scorpion's murder at Sub-Zero's hand, before the ninja returns to the world of the living as an undead spectre seeking vengeance for his murder and the death of his family and clan.

With many of Legacy's plotlines taking place on the fringe of the gaming timeline, it remains to be seen how much of the Scorpion/Sub-Zero rivalry will be detailed in the live-action series. Quan Chi is confirmed to play a role at some point in the series, but this does not confirm his instrumental role in continuing the rivalry, or creating Noob Saibot from Sub-Zero's death. At least one episode is expected to be told exclusively through Japanese dialogue.

The first episode of MK: Legacy is set to premiere live online via Machinima as the big conclusion to a four hour streaming session of gaming with Kevin Tancharoen and guest stars from the series. Machinima will go live with their event via YouTube, April 12 [full story]. The series is expected to be available shortly thereafter, via digital channels yet to be announced.
