Mortal Kombat creator says Scorpion and Sub-Zero will appear in Shaolin Monks 2 spin-off

Over the years, several Mortal Kombat titles have been made. Despite the popularity of this franchise, there has been no news of spin-offs of the series for some time. The last successful spin-off of the series, Shaolin Monks, was released in 2005.


However, recent reports suggest that NetherRealm is gearing up to make a spin-off of its franchises, which has fueled speculation about Shaolin Monks 2.

Ed Boon, the creator of Mortal Kombat, has also mentioned the existence of such a spin-off, which will revolve around the two characters Scorpion and Sub-Zero. Although Ed Boon's speech does not officially confirm anything, we can expect the sequel to the successful title Shaolin Monks to be unveiled at some unknown time:

Without a doubt, if we do a spin-off, it will be about Scorpion and Sub-Zero.

Ed Boon himself was a fan of the spin-off and is still interested in making a sequel. If these statements become reality, it will definitely be good news for the fans of this game. The said entry could also pave the way for other Mortal Kombat franchise spin-offs.

During the first years of Mortal Kombat's existence, more and more spin-off titles were released. For example, we can mention the successful Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero, which was the first spin-off of the series and revolved around the character of Sub-Zero.

So, while Shaolin Monks 2 isn't solely about the character of Sub-Zero, its creation adds variety to the series.

It is exciting to introduce a title focused on two characters, Scorpion and Sub-Zero. The two have evolved as rivals over the past ten years, although in the Mortal Kombat 1 timeline, they are introduced as each other's blood enemies.

Mortal Kombat 1 sold more than 3 million copies, but it's no secret that it has lost its popularity recently. Hopefully, NetherRealm has plans to make 2 Shaolin Monks to give this IP a new lease of life.
