Mortal Kombat: Legacy proved to be a decent-sized hit when the web series debuted on Machinema back in 2011. Now that the show is returning, the floodgates have officially been opened for every deep-cut character from the fighting-game videogame series. A new trailer just released for Mortal Kombat: Legacy II loudly trumpets the arrival of Liu Kang, the original nominal hero/most boring character in Mortal Kombat. (Important Information: Kang is played by Brian Tee, a.k.a. The Drift King in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift.)
Also, Caspar Van Dien is now playing Johnny Cage, and the series apparently involves an appearance by Ermac. If you understood anything about that last sentence, you probably lived at the video arcade in the mid-90s. Watch the trailer:
