Those of you who wish for a new Shaolin Monks almost got your wish. There was some work being done on a game very similar, but the main characters were going to be Scorpion and Sub-Zero. Former Midway employee Matthew Doyle mentions this on his personal website. Below the article is a map of one of the levels known as the Spiral Shaft.

Matthew Doyle: It was canceled within a few weeks of my arriving at Midway. I don't have anything else to show you unfortunately. Half the studio was laid off, and new management was brought in. Then we started work on TNA Wrestling.

A prototype level was built, but that was it. A few design docs were worked on, and a few characters were made in 3D - Scorpion and Subzero. The game was codenamed Fire & Ice - as those two characters were to be the main characters. I was really looking forward to doing level design and construction for it. It was a shame it was canceled
