Celebrity Deathmatch goes next-gen

Based on the popular US animated TV series, MTV’s Celebrity Deathmatch offers a roster of celebrity combatants, begging to be plunged into vicious fighting comedy.

Due out later this year on PS2, Xbox and GameCube, the list of playable characters below looks pretty good, and will provide some classic gaming moments. No word on online support or multiplayer yet, but you can’t help thinking that this would be amazing on Xbox LIVE.

Here’s the full line-up:

Lance Bass *NYSNC
Carrot Top
Joshua “JC” Chasez *NYSNC
Cleo
Shannon Doherty
Carmen Electra
Joey Fatone, Jr. *NYSNC
Ron Jeremy
Chris Kirkpatrick *NYSNC
Mills Lane
Tommy Lee
Marilyn Manson
Cindy Margolis
Debbie Matenopoulos
Busta Rhymes
Dennis Rodman
Anna Nicole Smith
Jerry Springer
Justin Timberlake *NYSNC

If the game’s any good, MTV’s Celebrity Deathmatch could be awesome. We’ll keep you posted.
