<!--Tags: mkd, mksm--><a href="http://www.gameinformer.com/" target="_blank" style="text-decoration: none">Game Informer</a> has updated there site with a new Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks interview with Ed Boon and Shaun Himmerick from Midway. In the Ed Boon and Shaun Himmerick talks about how there is no online mode and that Liu Kang and Kung Lao may NOT be the only characters playable. They also talk about Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks the current progress, Mortal Kombat: Deception and Unreal Championship 2.

<span style='color:gray'>Game Informer: First off, will I be able to fire up Shaolin Monks and go online and play cooperatively with someone else?

Ed Boon: No, so far there isn't a plan for this game to go online yet, but for future games it may be a consideration.

Shaun Himmerick: We looked at online and the things that we would have to cut back on, and what we found were some things that we didn't really want to do gameplay wise. And, it would have been too expensive. We really want to maximize gameplay and that's the decision that we ended up making: no online.

GI: How many playable characters have you settled on so far?

SH: More than two! There isn't a final number yet. We could fit in a ton of playable characters if we were willing to sacrifice differentiation. If one character fights the exact same way as all the others, heck, we could have everyone be playable. But, we don't want to do that. We really want to make each character feel and play differently. Right now Liu Kang and Kung Lao feel and play completely different from each other. So there may be as few as three and the most there would probably be is six.

Wow. That is really cool. More than 2 chars that you can play! I'm thinking that they will be Johnny Cage, Kitana, Mileena, Reptile, Subby, and Jade.
