Retailers didn’t have much in the way of exclusive promotions tied to the Aug. 31 new releases.
The only one of note was from Best Buy, which offered a Steelbook 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray edition of Warner’s new direct-to-video animated movie Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms, at $32.99.
A sequel to 2020’s Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge and based on the “Mortal Kombat” video game franchise, Battle of the Realms finds the team of heroes besieged by the enemy forces of Shao Kahn — forcing Raiden and his group of warriors into a deal to compete in a final Mortal Kombat that will determine the fate of the realms. As the travel to Outworld in order to defend Earthrealm, Scorpion must find the ancient Kamidogu before it’s used to resurrect the One Being — which would mean certain destruction of all things in the universe.
