has posted an interview
with Mortal Kombat Shaolin Monks
producer, Shaun Himmerick
. Here's a bit on the game's storyline.
What can you tell us at this point about the storyline for Shaolin Monks?
Shaun Himmerick: Liu Kang and Kung Lao are the heroes in this game. Shang Tsung attacks earth after losing the MK1 tournament and our heroes have to defend it. In order to defeat Shang Tsung the characters go after him into Outworld.
The player comes across many of the MK characters from the past as you work your way through the game, some friendly and many as enemies. Some of the most interesting enemies in the game are ones that were just background elements in MK2 like the shadow priests from the Portal.
