Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks is an Action/Adventure title based primarily on one or two player gameplay set within beautifully rendered 3D environments based on the original Mortal Kombat and Mortal Kombat II games. Beginning as either Kung Lao or Liu Kang (each possessing his own unique repertoire of attack styles and fatalities), players will have the ability to interact with a slew of classic Mortal Kombat characters, such as Sub-Zero, Scorpion, Kitana, Goro and many more.

Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks will feature an impressive line-up of Mortal Kombat characters, as well, that make frequent appearances as enemies, in boss battles and during several additional in-game interactions.

Experience the Mortal Kombat franchise from an entirely new action/adventure perspective with the first ever Multi-Directional Kombat System and explore the Mortal KombatĀ® II universe as two of the series' favorite Shaolin Monks: Liu Kang and Kung Lao.
