GameSpot gets a chance to sit down with Mortal Kombat co-creator, Ed Boon and Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks (Xbox, PS2) producer, Shawn Himmerick in a new developer's video preview. In this video, the origins of Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks are discussed along with the future direction of the Mortal Kombat franchise.

Midway and developer Paradox's collaboration has resulted in a unique game that takes a good chunk of the MK elements and marries them with action-platforming elements. The results we've seen most recently point to the game featuring solid gameplay that won't offend current fans and may well make some new ones. Above and beyond the gameplay, Midway and Paradox have peppered the game with a "who's who" of little touches that root the game in the MK II universe.

Midway says September 19th. Stores should be getting it on the Tuesday the 20th.

Anyone fancy being sad enough to camp outside a store? Or are we all bright enough not to repeat the mistakes of the Halo 2 fans?

Well I will probably just be there right when Ebgames opens which is 10am and chill there until they get it. Maybe bring my GBA or just play one of their demo consoles. 2 weeks until release!

MKD was the last MK game I pre ordered. Not going to make the same mistake. I'll wait for several reviews first and I might wait until the price drops.
