Both GameDaily and Shacknews preview the upcoming Mortal Kombat game: Mortal Kombat: Armageddon. From the articles:
But here's the thing: the last time we had bosses selectable by default in an MK game (MK Trilogy), the balancing left a little to be desired... which is putting it lightly. So what about in Armageddon? Will Shao Kahn, Goro and others be able to easily lay the smack down on other "normal" fighters such as Sub-Zero, Sonya, and Kano? "The boss characters are going to go through the same development and balancing as the normal characters in Armageddon," assures Boon. "In Trilogy, [the bosses] had to be pieced together with the 'boss-only' assets created for MK1, 2 and 3. Because of this, they ... never got the same treatment as the other characters, which were balanced from their original arcade games."

By now you may be wondering exactly how this game appeals to classic MK fans who were shunned by the move to 3D (and less strategic gameplay). Well, Midway has declared that this is the MK that will tie up all the loose ends and allow the development team to move on to the next generation with a completely new look and feel to the series. This doesn't mean you won't be seeing a few of the staple characters in Mortal Kombat 8, but it does mean that fans of the classic MK titles will be rid of the current fighting engine when the next generation of Mortal Kombat is finally upon us. Sorry MK fans, but the 3D MK games have turned a lot of old school fans away from the series who would love to get back into things with a brand new fighting engine.

The official Mortal Kombat: Armageddon Website (www.mkarmageddon.com) has been updated. There is really nothing new and interesting there but at least some sort of activity has been shown after its creation. The site has only the Dragon logo on it. However keep an eye on it because it will probably be updated soon with some new information.
