Game Chronicles Magazine has updated their site with a new interview with Shaun Himmerick, the producer of Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks. In the interview he talks about its development, timeline, multiplayer and much more. He also mentions that there is an upcoming game featuring a popular MK character.
My name is Shaun Himmerick and I am the producer of Mortal Kombat Shaolin Monks. I have been with Midway for 5 years and with the Mortal Kombat team for almost 2 years now, working on the MK:Shaolin Monks project. The game is being developed out of the Midway LA office, formerly Paradox Development. Even though this game was originally being done as a 3rd party project, the MK team in Chicago has maintained very close contact and worked closely with the team in LA. The art directors on MKSM are Tony Goskie and Steve Beran from the MK Deception team and have been apart of the MK team for many games. As well, Ed Boon is the Creative Director of the game.

Raiden was chosen because he was the one guy the Epic guys all wanted unanimously. He also fits the Unreal universe well, given his orientation around lightning based projectiles."

It was only a matter of time before they would overrun my stronghold. Using a powerful magical item retrieved long ago by my minions, I created a clone of myself to draw my enemies' attention while I escaped into the wild. When I have regained my strength, I will destroy all who have opposed my rule.
Place of origin: Outworld
Allies: Shao Kahn
Foes: Baraka, Kitana
Kitana's army allied with my Shokan warriors in an attempt to destroy my old master, Shao Kahn. It was rumored that he has weakening and that our victory was inevitable.
