We%26rsquo;ve beaten and bloodied Big Boi and T.I. dozens of times since the release of the Def Jam: Icon demo last week, but until today we%26rsquo;ve known little about the rest of the roster outside of what could be gathered from trailers and screenshots. Well, we can finally rest easy knowing we%26rsquo;ll be able to beat Lil%26rsquo; Jon within an inch of his life in just a few weeks. Oh, and we%26rsquo;ll teach Anthony Anderson a thing or two for ruining the limitless potential of My Baby%26rsquo;s Daddy.
The full list of urban culture representatives was finally revealed today, a nice mix of industry figureheads, series veterans and a plethora of new talent. The press release specifies the list as the entire cast of %26ldquo;playable fighters as well as celebrity special appearances,%26rdquo; but we expect the majority of these to be selectable characters:
While we%26rsquo;re a little sad that EA has continued to ignore their extended family of licensed characters (where%26rsquo;s John Madden versus Boromir? Don Vito Corleone vesus Catwoman?), we expect the roster to please series fans and newcomers alike.
