This week subscribers to the Official Xbox Magazine are receiving their September 2005 issues with a Demo Disc (# 48) that contains the playable demo of Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks. It also includes playable demos of Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Lockdown and The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction.

Also the Official Playstation Magazine should also have the game soon, but we have yet to receive official confirmation of this happening.

For those looking for finishing moves for the demo, you can give these a try. These worked on the demo of Shaolin Monks shown at E3 2005. We will update this list when confirmation comes in of the moves, if they have changed or been removed. Also be sure to check out our Shaolin Monks Area of our forums for more discussion on the game.

UPDATE 8/3: The 2nd and 3rd Fatalities DO NOT work for the Xbox demo, only the first one does.

Cant wait untill a demo comes out over here. In the UK OXM have been repeating demos from about 6 months or something.

I'll give out +5 TRMKarma to the first to confirm that those moves + fatalities are still correct. Also another +5 TRMKarma for a good scan/photo of the CD and the magazine cover. Thanks!

Will it be the same for when the rest of the world get a demo? (karma wise)

Also,once you almost beat Baraka,it will have like a 10 second cut-scene and it will say: "To be Kontenued. Mortal Kombat Shaolin Monks coming Fall 2005"

Man, just go knock on Midway's door and demand a copy of the demo.

[/quote] I'd love to, we've made numerous attempts to get a hold of the demo, or a pre-release game just like the major gaming magazines do. But no dice on all counts. We've offered to follow all rules set down by those organizations, and continue to be denied.

TRMK should be counted as THE MK site really. This is (my thoughts) the best site for everything related to MK. All ther other sites I have seen can't touch this. Yeah Midway should surely hook this site up with a pre-release or early build of the demo.

Tobad TRMK is 5 on the top five most visited MK sites!
