Mortal Kombat Shaolin Monks has topped a poll from Ed Boon asking fans what their most requested Mortal Kombat remaster is.
The poll comes seemingly randomly from series director Ed Boon, who asked fans what past Mortal Kombat game they’d like to see receive a remaster. The choices included Mortal Kombat Deception, Mortal Kombat 2, Mortal Kombat 9 and Shaolin Monks.
Although Mortal Kombat 9 garnered near 30% of the votes, Shaolin Monks easily took the led with almost 50% of all of the votes. Ed Boon even commented on the success of the poll, with fans managing to get Shaolin Monks trending on Twitter.
This result probably shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise for the Mortal Kombat community. A Shaolin Monks remaster or sequel has been a long-standing request from the community for some time, with fans enjoying how different of a Mortal Kombat title it is and wanting to see the concept evolve. There have been several teases and nods to Shaolin Monks ever since the game originally released,
As you might expect, Ed Boon is pretty aware of the desire for a Shaolin Monks remaster, so don’t expect too much from the results of this poll. Not only does he like to troll the fanbase, but a lot of his activity on Twitter is just community engagement and doesn’t tend to lead to much. Never say never though, Shaolin Monks has clearly proven that it has some staying power here.
Interestingly, the only game out of this list that seems likely to get a remaster is Mortal Kombat 2, which sat at the bottom of the poll. A remastered Mortal Kombat trilogy called Mortal Kombat Kollection has been leaked several times before over the past few years, although it has never seen the light of day. Mortal Kombat 2 seems an odd choice to put on the poll compared to the other titles, so it could be a little wink to that trilogy.
The subject of remasters is pretty hot right now, with Simpsons Hit and Run beating out games like GTA San Andreas and Bully for the most requested remaster.
