Gamescom 2012: World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria cinematic trailer

MMORPG fans will be excited to know that a new expansion for World of Warcraft will soon be coming out. Set for release on September 25th, WoW: Mists of Pandaria will introduce players to a mystical new realm inhabited by a race of humanoid pandas known as Pandarians. 

We’re not psychics here at DT, and we have no idea where they draw inspiration from, but it looks like somebody over at Blizzard really enjoyed Kung Fu Panda. This cinematic trailer features a three-way fight scene between an orc, a human, and a member of the new Pandarian race — and while watching the fight scene play out, we couldn’t help but notice a distinct similarity to DreamWork’s hit movie.

Regardless of all that though, the clip is undeniably entertaining, and is sure to catch the attention of WoW fans everywhere.
