Some added details from this month's Game Informer: Development on Shaolin Monks is being handled by Pandox, known for their work on X-Men: Mutant Acadmy. When questioned about the decision to branch out into other genres with the Mortal Kombat franchise, something that failed previously with MK: Mythologies and Special Forces, Boon said Midway has "taken every precaution to ensure the success of Shaolin Monks." In particular, Boon previously had no input on Mythologies or Special Forces, but he's overseeing the development of Shaolin Monks. Raiden will serve as the game's narrator. According to Boon, the game's principle theme is the storyline between the end of Mortal Kombat 1 through Mortal Kombat 3. Shaolin Monks will boast environments based largely on Mortal Kombat 2. For example, Druids found in the portal level of MK2 will be enemies in Shaolin. Explanining this further, he said; "There we a lot of rumors during MK2 that you could that you throw someone up into the spikes. Now you can, Boom, and they'll swing a little bit. I can throw characters off into acid, and they're going to char. You know, it's fully death trapped. We tapped into any rumor that we could find for MK2." Paradox is planning to implement a multidirectional attack system that will allow players to seamlessly transition between enemies as they progress through environments. Gameplay elements aside from fighting will include platform jumping and puzzle solving. Boon also hinted at the game's vast hidden elements, saying; "Roughly 30% of the game isn't part of the main storyline. You can play through the entire game and never fight Ermac. But if you play as Sub-Zero, you have to beat Ermac. There's going to be tons of unlockable stuff just like that." Players will earn experience points by beating enemies. Those experience points can later be used to upgrade the special attacks of your characters. Great site guys, all the best.

At last, they've come areound to what i've always dreamed of. Ever since MK4, i've been saying...."this is ok...but now that they've got technology, they need to be revisiting MK2 material sometime." and at last, my dreams have materialized. I hope its just like KONQUEST mode...or at least similar to it in structure, cuz that is pretty addictive. Probobaly will be, cuz they're known to reuse what works, and just add to it. MK3-MK3u-MKT...all basically the same game; diff people same with MKDA and MKD...so i guess that's what they'd do with KONQUEST. But even if they don't, and come up with something radically different than what we've seen...expect to see me first in line.

Yeah, too bad its scheduled for a September 2005 release, eh? I hope this one doesn't suck as much as Special Forces did, though. Plus, it'd be interesting to see what went on between MK1 and MK2.
