After years of brain-storming, story-boarding, and development, Midway Games has announced that their epic title Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks has gone golden!

For those who are not aware, a "gold title" is a piece of software that has been completely finished, and is now being sent to manufacturing. A gold title does not refer to how many copies of the game have been sold.

With the game now complete, gamers who have read the Developer's Diary, scanned through the promotional renders, and watched the movie clips in awe will finally be able to step into the shoes of their favorite Mortal Kombat legends, and whup some Outworld tail within the next few weeks.
