There have been quite a few Mortal Kombat Spinoff games, and every single one of them has been exceptionally awful – save for one. Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks. Set in the Mortal Kombat II timeline, Shaolin Monks was a pretty damned fine co-op game featuring Liu Kang ad Kung Lao in a God of War styled adventure. And it looks like it’s getting an HD makeover.

In a not particularly subtle tweet, NetherRealm’s Ed Boon pretty much confirmed it.


Any of you keen to replay it – or mayhaps even play it for the first time? As i said, it was a pretty damned cool experience, filled with locations and characters you’d recognise from Mortal Kombat II – which, until the most recent entry, was the best game in the series if you ask me.

Not really a big fan of re-releases…but I’d play this.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
