    Midway's kung fu adventure takes you on a bloody journey through Outworld.

    Departing from the one-on-one beat 'em up action that made the series' name, Mortal
    Kombat: Shaolin Monks unleashes a gore-soaked kung fu action adventure which is literally
    out of this world. The game follows the exploits of Liu Kang and Kung Lao as they are
    sucked into Outworld at the end of the first tournament, and pits you against a horde of
    warriors and iconic bosses from the beat 'em up games, either in single or multiplayer
    co-op modes.

    Multi-directional combat takes the character's iconic moves to the next level, hand-in-fist
    with the introduction of new abilities and weapons. Interactive environments let you hurl
    enemies onto spikes, or run up and along walls, while action-oriented puzzles keep the
    pace blistering.
    • First single/multiplayer co-op Mortal Kombat action adventure

    • Classic and new moves taken to the next dimension with 3D gameplay

    • Customise your characters, developing their abilities to your style
