"The Netherealm demon, Sareena, lost her human form in an attack from the fallen Elder God, Shinnok. She was transposed back into her demon form as her essence descended back to the 5th plane of the Netherealm. Sareena remained there until she discovered an abandoned portal that led to Outworld. Once in Outworld, she learned to feed off of the living aura of that realm to regain her human appearance. She no longer needed Quan Chi’s sorcery to sustain her exterior beauty.
While in Outworld, the demon known as Sareena encountered Sub-Zero. Since she had freed his brother from his confines of the Netherealm so many years ago, Sub-Zero offered her asylum within the Lin Kuei. His compassion may be honorable, but befriending a demon of Netherealm is not an action without risk... as Sub-Zero may soon discover."

Midway announced the title for the next MK game as Mortal Kombat VI. This is probably the temporary title, and will be changed soon.

IGN posted a small article about the sequel of Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance - Mortal Kombat: Tournament Edition. The game will ship somewhere in august 2003. It will be shown at E3 this year. Here is the full text of the preview:
"May 09, 2003 - What was originally going to be called Mortal Kombat: Deadly Revenge is now simply known as Mortal Kombat: Tournament Edition. Midway's internal Game Boy Advance development team has taken what it built for the GBA in Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance, and fine-tuned it for a sequel of sorts, adding new characters and features in the attempt to make this the ultimate fighter on Nintendo's handheld.
The Game Boy Advance-exclusive sequel will feature an updated roster of fighters, including Cyrax, Drahmin, Hsu Hao, Johnny Cage, Mavado, Raiden, Reptile, Bo Rai Cho and Nitra, as well as characters from the previous game, Scorpion, Shang Tsung and Quanchi. There is also new, original fighters created specifically for the sequel, including Sareena and two secrets. There will also be new arenas such as the Lost Tomb, Wu Shi Academy, Sarna Ruins, Molochs Lair have been added to several of the popular fighting backgrounds from the original Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance.
The sequel will include several new modes of play, including four-player tournaments, tag-team mode (two-on-two), Race to Raiden where players change fighters after each victory to become the first to win as Raiden, an Arcade mode where players wager on linked battles, and a Co-Op Mode where players can link GBA systems and play the tag-team mode. The sequel will be reverse-compatible with Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance so that players with the old version can fight with Scorpion, Shang Tsung and Quanchi against players with the sequel. There will also be a new practice mode, gambling so players can put wagers on the action, and improved player statistics that are tracked to cartridge.
Whew...that's a huge update to an already great fighter. We can't wait to see the game at the Electronic Entertainment Expo next week. Check out the first screenshots right here.
At IGN you can also see the first 10 screenshots from Mortal Kombat: Tournament Edition.
