Similar to the animated series it’s based on, Konami’s Xiaolin Showdown, licensed by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, is a mystical kung fu action-adventure comedy that follows Omi, a kung fu monk who leads three young dragons-in-training on globetrotting adventures.
Their mission is to search and protect the Shen Gong Wu – mystical power objects – from a band of villains led by an evil boy genius called Jack Spicer. Spicer is using his army of robots and an ancient witch called Wuya to get the artifacts before Omi and his friends. As such, the heroes must rely on their superb martial arts skills and the mystical powers of the Shen Gong Wu to fight evil and save the world!
Xiaolin Showdown takes the form of a free-flowing 3D action game, wherein up to four players can take control of the heroes. As the screen becomes infested with Spicer’s evil-doers, players must work together to kick and punch their way to the next stage, combining their mystical powers together to create unique combination attacks and devastating counters.
Along the way, the quartet should keep an eye out for Shen Gong Wu items, before competing in special ‘Showdowns’ that transport the players to special arenas and test their varying skills, with each level ending in an all out boss battle.
With graphics that perfectly complement the unique visual style of the animated series, and suitably frenetic gameplay, Xiaolin Showdown is the perfect game recreation of Warner Bros’ stunning animated series.
