GameSpot has a real gem for Mortal Kombat fans in a new video for Unreal Championship 2, the Xbox exclusive first-person shooter with a third-person melee fighting twist.

For those who are unaware, Midway acquired the rights to publish the Unreal franchise back in July 2004 and immediately decided to cross-promote licenses between the Mortal Kombat and Unreal franchises by introducing Raiden as a character in Unreal Championship 2.

Those who have the original Unreal Championship will be psyched to hear that UC2 features a custom Unreal engine, tailored to the Xbox hardware, and not a port of Unreal Tournament like the original UC was.

In the GameSpot video, Raiden is shown performing several of his melee attacks including a spinning staff attack that explodes his opponents into gibs and his "shocker" fatality.

UPDATE: IGN has a developer interview up that explains the decision to add Raiden to Unreal Championship 2.

Raiden is pretty sweet in that clip. I hope more exclusive MK characters are in it.

I can't believe you'd think it would be a fake. Why would he be fighting unreal characters if he wasn't in it?

I doubt very highly that it's a fake.

Exactly I mean if Midway has Unreal Championship then its possible to have Raiden.

Can't answer that but to be honest... You didn't NEED to post triple times. Your first first is alright, but the second is basically spam and the third is pointless. PM a mod or something. Anyway. We all now know there is enough to say yes he will be in th game end of story along with a few others (someone remind me who the hell is also in it!). It looks cool, yet for some reason I think it would simply be way too odd to have him in the game. Do they put storylines in for the Unreal games? Since the first one I haven't played a Unreal game all I know is that one has a storyline.
