Mortal Kombat: Legacy On iTunes

Mortal Kombat: Legacy (2011-) is a live-action web series premised upon the popular video game franchise. Backed by Warner Brothers, it has perhaps the highest production value of any web series to date — seriously, this isn’t some homemade shit.

Why talk about something that’s a year old? The answer is distribution. Most of us associate web series with free, and Mortal Kombat: Legacy is no exception, though the first (and currently the only) season is now also available for purchase on iTunes. We’re talking $14.99 for 9 episodes and a featurette or $3.49 per episode — a bit steep for a series you can watch on YouTube and whose episodes range from 8-13 minutes in duration. A second season is in the works and perhaps this is some sort of transitional period to a paid model.

The bottom line is that if you’re a fan of the franchise and haven’t seen the series, you should, and you now have a choice as to whether or not you want to pay for it.
