Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks Made Official

Midway Games formally announced today that the company is hard at work on the development of the next installment in the Mortal Kombat series, titled Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks. The game will release in the Fall of 2005.

Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks is an action/adventure title as opposed to a traditional fighting game. Similar to the recently released Mortal Kombat: Deception, background interactions (i.e., acid pits, living trees, spiked ceilings, etc.), multiple new fatalities, and action-based puzzles will also play an important role in the player’s quest for victory. The game will also feature an impressive line-up of Mortal Kombat characters, that will make frequent appearances as enemies, in boss battles, and during several additional in-game interactions.

We'll certainly learn more about this game at the next E3 show in May. Until then, let's hope Shaolin Monks turns out better than Mortal Kombat: Mythologies did.

On a related note, Midway has also made concrete a plan to produce one new Mortal Kombat game each year. That begs the question--will they start numbering them like sports games at some point?

What do you think about The Last Of Us: Remastered?
Fantastic! Can't wait to get it!
Good, not sure if I'll buy immediately.
Eh, not bad, but I don't care.
It's just a stupid money grab.
