Mortal Kombat Online is proud to announce along with the release of Midway Games' Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks, the return of its popular celebrity chat feature FIGHT NIGHT! The return of Fight Night will bring fans and the Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks Development Team, including creative director Ed Boon and producer Shaun Himmerick, together in one central location to have the fans' questions answered by the team itself!

The chat event itself will take place on Monday, October 3rd at 9 PM Eastern Daylight Time. The event will last for about an hour, and it will take place at the #MortalKombat Online IRC Network!

The event can be reached via a java chat at the link above or by using the following settings in your IRC client of choice:

Server: irc.webmaster.com -or- irc.webchat.org
Port: 6667
Channel: #mortalkombat

Because of the anticipated high attendance, question submission for Fight Night will be done before the event. From now until Friday, September 30th at 11:59 PM EDT, we will be pre-accepting questions for the chat via the Fight Night Submission Form available at this link. We will be accepting approximately ten to fifteen questions related to Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks (either development questions and/or playable hints) from the pre-submitted queue, time permitting. Then, attendees will be able to submit questions at the actual event itself. The remainder of the questions for the evening will be picked from the questions asked at the event. It will be at this time that we might take a few questions pertaining to the development of Mortal Kombat 7.

Don't forget to mark your calendars! Again, the event will be taking place Monday, October 3rd at 9 PM EDT. We look forward to seeing you all at Fight Night! As Shaun Himmerick would put it best, Tell your friends!

About Mortal Kombat Shaolin Monks:

Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks is an Action/Adventure title driven by both intense single and multi-player action. Similar to the recently released Mortal Kombat: Deception, background interactions (i.e., acid pits, living trees, spiked ceilings, etc.), multiple new fatalities, and action-based puzzles will also play an important role in the player’s quest for an “outstanding� victory. Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks will feature an impressive line-up of Mortal Kombat characters, as well, that make frequent appearances as enemies, in boss battles and during several additional in-game interactions.

About Mortal Kombat Online Fight Night:

Fight Night chat events have been taking place in the Mortal Kombat Community since well before 1999 with special guests including Ed Boon (creator, Mortal Kombat), the MK: Deadly Alliance and MK: Deception developments teams, members of Threshold Entertainment's Conquest television program, and other various MK personalities. Mortal Kombat Online broke a Fight Night record in October 2004 when over 1,200 guests witnessed the event with key members of the Mortal Kombat: Deception development team.

About Mortal Kombat Online:

Founded in 1998, Mortal Kombat Online has covered four E3 conventions, three Midway Gamers' Day events, two past Mortal Kombat developer chats, and Game Stars Live in London. Mortal Kombat Online has gained the reputation of providing the best analysis of the games' progress while featuring exclusive hands on previews of games like Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks and Mortal Kombat: Deception, even before release. The website's growing relationship with Midway Games and the Mortal Kombat Team has supplied fans with information that can't be found anywhere else. Mortal Kombat Online in February of 2004, changed its name from MK5.ORG, in an effort to expand its focus on the entire Mortal Kombat franchise.
