the years 2005 Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks started trending online after series co-creator Ed Boon asked fans for their remastering wishes. Boon teased Mortal combat a lot of fans lately, like last month, he may have teased a potential Marvel and DC crossover fighting game.
the Mortal combat the series has a dedicated fan base, in part because of the various twists and turns the franchise takes. From the iconic “Toasty!” Easter egg with intentionally exaggerated violence and surprisingly healthy friendship finishing moves, Mortal combat provides both humor and viscerally disgusting action while delivering a complex, lore-rich history.

Recently, Ed boon took to Twitter to post a poll with a caption that simply read: “Remaster…. ?“Available options included the 2004 Mortal Kombat: Deception, 2011 Mortal Kombat 9 restart, the original Mortal Kombat II from 1993, and Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks.

At the time of writing, a total of 129,121 votes have been cast, of which 47.3% went to Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks (disclosure: this writer had to vote to see the results). Mortal Kombat 9 comes second with 27.8%, Mortal Kombat: Deception took third place with 14.1%, and Mortal Kombat II received the remaining 10.8%. Fans are apparently divided, with many begging a Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks remaster, and others don’t quite get the hype for the spin-off.
While all the other games on the list are closer to the typical game Mortal combat live, Mortal combat: Shaolin monksThe main attraction was its cooperative adventure mode, where players could team up with a friend and explore the Mortal combat world and fight their way through hordes of servants. The game’s story centers around Kung Lao and Liu Kang, but Scorpion and Sub-Zero are also unlockable for the game’s adventure mode. Plus, as an added bonus, Mortal Kombat II is playable in Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks via an in-game unlock.
Of course, the other games all have their pros too, and fans are nostalgic for them as well (see this Mortal Kombat 9 fan animation for proof) but for many, Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks was their first introduction to the franchise and one of the few games to feature true adventure mode instead of just 1v1 combat. Ed Boon talked about making a Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks remaster before, so maybe this poll will give it the momentum to make that happen.
