NCsoft's MOBA Master X Master adds City of Heroes star

Not quite a new CoH

Four years after NCsoft shut down City of Heroes, fans are still announcing new unofficial takes on its superhero MMORPG antics. NCsoft seem to have no plans for a new game of their own but they haven't entirely forgotten it, as they've announced that iconic hero Statesman is coming to their crossover MOBA Master X Master [official site]. It's not quite the CoH news one might hope for but hey, perhaps a nod is better than oblivion. If you rock yourself to sleep hugging your Statesman body pillow and dreaming of his Fist of Justice, hold on, he's coming.

This page explains how they've converted him to a MOBA character with powers of flight, resilience, lightning, and standing up to a good kicking.

Master X Master, to refresh your memory, is a MOBA where each player picks two characters and can tag between them. Its lineup includes new characters as well as folks from a range of different NCsoft games, including Guild Wars 2, Aion, and, now, City of Heroes.

Sure, it's no new City of Heroes game, but that's not what crossovers and cameos are for. Though I am boycotting Marvel movies until they make amends for the Howard the Duck cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy by releasing another Howard movie with more horrifying ducktits (do not click this link, whatever you do).

If you want to feel that Fist of Justice stroking your cheek, you can sign up for the closed beta test that'll run from April 6th to 27th.
