Midway Games has shipped their first title, Unreal Championship 2, in their new publishing alliance with Epic Games. Built from the ground up for the Xbox, Unreal Championship 2 features new gameplay elements, including a deep melee combat system that seamlessly blends in with the ranged weapon combat the series is known for, the option of first or third-person point of views, a full story-driven single-player mode, dozens of all new maps, new game modes and an arsenal of new weaponry.

Of course, Unreal Championship 2 is of interest to Mortal Kombat fans as the Thunder God makes an appearance as a playable character. Raiden features many of his classic electric Mortal Kombat moves in addition to his staff weapon. Unreal Championship 2 is scheduled to be in stores today.

Reading Raiden's info on the site for this, makes me wonder if a Unreal champsionship 2 character will actually appear in the next MK game...

What I like is all the characters have impresive names like Shappire, Arclite and Anubis.... ...And right in the middle of them is a character called Malcolm! Even the guy annoucing names doesn't sound as if he is really taking that name seriously 100%.
