And Mortal Kombat received any remastering, which delivery would be the most desired? According to a Twitter poll posted by Ed Boon, creative director of the series, this is not about any of the classic or 3D installments, but the spin-off Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks. To his surprise, the reaction has had enormous support among the community, with more than 147,000 votes – his account is followed by 644,000 users – of which 46% choose Shaolin Monks, 28.2% to Mortal Kombat 9 -called Mortal Kombat to dry, which reinvented the 2D gameplay that has remained with MK X Y MK 11-, 14.1% keep Mortal Kombat: Deception -one of the episodes with 3D gameplay- and 11% prefer Mortal Kombat 2, one of the most remembered classics.

The success of the survey has been such that for some time Shaolin Monks became trending topic or most talked about topic in the United States, to the surprise of Ed Boon himself, who was not expecting such a passionate response from fans.
Shaolin Monks was a success, unlike its predecessors
Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks is one of the alternative titles that were released under the license of Mortal Kombat with the intention of reaching an audience that did not know the fighting saga. While Mythologies: Sub-Zero Y Special Forces received harsh criticism and did not repeat the success of the main saga, Shaolin Monks – starring Liu Kang and Kung Lao – was best valued in his attempt to transfer the characters and myths to a cooperative action adventure; managed to sell more than a million copies.
Could NetherRealm Studios work on a new adventure? Last year Ed Boon hinted that they had more projects going, even out of universe Mortal Kombat. “We have done other things that we feel like doing, such as Injustice, Y we have other things in the oven“, although he admits that” it is always nice to do Mortal Kombat“.
