It's not a fighting game, at least in the traditional sense, but fans of the Mortal Kombat series should be pleased to know that Mortal Kombat: Shaoling Monks has shipped to retail stores nationwide. The game will be available on both the PS2 and the Xbox.

"Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks delivers on our plan to produce quality Mortal Kombat titles on an annual basis," said Steve Allison, chief marketing officer, Midway. "In expanding the Mortal Kombat universe in the action/adventure genre, players can expect a challenging and innovative gameplay experience that adds a fresh new look and feel to our best-selling franchise."

If you hurry, you can still pre-order a copy of Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks and receive a Limited Edition 2-character action figure set featuring Kung Lao and Liu Kang for free.
