Microsoft announced an updated list of over 70 old Xbox games that can now be played on the latest Xbox hardware, ranging from classics like Max Payne 3 and Star Wars: Jedi Knight 2 to strange, obscure gemstones like 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand.

As the title suggests, Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe hollowed out MK pillars like Liu Kang and Scorpion against people like Batman and Superman in an unexpected crossover clash. Although the game has long been under control Mortal Kombat fans because of its toned-down violence and teenage assessment, Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe would eventually be met with decent sales figures and serve as a sort of preview for NetherRealm’s later entry into the world of DC Comics with Injustice series. Meanwhile, 2011’s Mortal Kombat 9 was a restart of the protracted MK the series, which received high praise as a return to the form of the series after some of the more divisive entries of the mid-2000s. Despite both of these Mortal Kombat titles that have their fair share of fans, and playing them in the console generations after their original game on the Xbox 360 proved to be a challenge. Only Mortal Kombat 9 was available for purchase on Steam in recent years, and even that would eventually be removed by 2020.
