Added hip-hop superstar Busta Rhymes "The game is hot. I'm a big fan of the TV show, but the video game takes it to another level."
"I can't wait for the game to come out," said Anna Nicole Smith, current E! TV star and former Playboy Playmate of the Year. "Catch me if you can, but watch yourself because I've got some secret weapons."

"I can't tell you how excited I am to be a part of Celebrity Deathmatch" said cyber-babe Cindy Margolis. "This game has heart-pounding action from start to finish. My days of being a nice girl are over so you better watch your back!"

MTV’s "Celebrity Deathmatch" lampooned popular sports and event coverage and featured all the pre-game and post-game activities of fights, such as one-on-one interviews, press conferences and hilarious moments in the locker room. The first "Celebrity Deathmatch" premiered in a fall 1997 episode of "Cartoon Sushi," MTV’s animated variety series. The singular bout was a fantasy fight between Charles Manson and Marilyn Manson who competed for the title of "Most Evil Man in America." MTV went on to debut a Super Bowl Half-Time special, "Celebrity Deathmatch Deathbowl ‘98," featuring fantasy slugfests with Howard Stern vs. Kathie Lee Gifford, Pamela Anderson Lee vs. RuPaul and Hanson vs. The Spice Girls.
