Game Information

WB Kids and Cartoon Network?s Xiaolin Showdown is another red-hot cartoon license for Konami, transformed into a blistering martial-arts extravaganza for PS2, Xbox and PSP.

In the TV show a young orphaned monk-in-training from a Xiaolin Temple joins forces with street-smart kid from Brazil, a technical wiz-kid from Japan and a cowboy from Texas USA. Omi, Raimundo, Kimiko and Clay are chosen by an old temple master to become Xiaolin Dragons, with the mission to find and protect sacred artefacts from forces of evil.

Players must combine the young Dragons? mystical powers against their enemies in environments filled with hazards, enemies, and collectables. The 30 sacred artefacts of ?Shen Gong Wu? imbue the kids with magical kung-fu powers, used to defeat robots and ancient witches controlled by their nemesis: Evil Boy Genius Jack Spicer.

In story mode, players travel the world in search of the sacred pieces, battling enemies on the way to martial arts ?Showdowns? versus formidable ?boss? characters. If they win, they secure another piece of the Shen Gong Wu which increases their strength for the next quest.

Four friends can choose to play as the four Dragons, competing for the coolest artefacts to trigger the most impressive attacks in hectic melee combat. Each character has their own special moves, and players can unlock two of the show?s villains to cause even more havoc.

On the Nintendo DS version, four friends can play as the four Dragons via the wireless connection in combat style mini-games based on themes such as King of the Hill. Winners steal magical Shen Gong Wu orbs from the losers. These ?Showdowns? are ideal for quick burst gameplay on both of the leading handheld formats.

  • Based on the ?WB Kids? animated series on Cartoon Network
  • Six playable characters, all with mystical kung-fu powers
  • Fast-paced 1-4 multiplayer co-operative gameplay modes
  • Fight epic boss characters in winner-take-all arena combat
  • Engage in Showdowns testing martial arts skills to the max
