Injustice: Gods Among Us
Injustice: Gods Among Us is Mortal Kombat Dev's New DC Fighter
Written Thursday, May 31, 2012 By Richard Walker

No strangers to the DC Universe, Mortal Kombat developer NetherRealm Studios will be taking on Injustice: Gods Among Us, which will see DC Comics' finest heroes and villains pitted against one another for a new fighting game franchise.

Characters like Batman, Harley Quinn, Solomon Grundy, Superman, The Flash, Wonder Woman and others will face off in large-scale battles, in a world where the lines drawn between good and evil have become increasingly blurred.

“We can’t wait to reveal Injustice: Gods Among Us because it will give our fans and gamers an epic experience as they battle like gods as their favourite DC Comics villains and heroes,” said Creative Director and Mortal Kombat main man, Ed Boon. “Our team is excited to make a fighting game that is filled with fast-paced action, incredible story-telling and iconic DC Comics characters.”

Injustice: Gods Among Us is slated for a 2013 launch, with the logo being the only thing revealed thus far. Expect more from E3 next week. Fingers crossed.

@1 Obviously not, sorry to burst your bubble but it's just a DC comics game, as you can tell from the way they're talking about it. They want "Story Telling and iconic DC characters" putting in Scorpion or someone would ruin the game.

However, back OT: This sounds fantastic, especially the notion of "Large scale battles"

Bring on 2013!

Go watch the reveal trailer. You can find it on Kotaku as well as other places. It looks like MK9 with DC characters. It has multi-level arenas like MK vs DC did, but keeps the 2D gameplay of MK9. Graphics look about the same too. And apparently there are some sort of super or finishing moves, such as Superman punching someone up into the atmosphere and flying up after them and so on. Looks pretty cool. If it's anywhere near as good as MK9, I'm all over it.

Another over rated game. They're overkilling it like Halo and Call of Duty.

I was excited until i read, from the makers of Mortal Kombat. I have never liked those fighting games, they are bad. I will have to pass on this.

#24 magic, kryptonite, red sun, and Massive Physical Forces. "While Superman is extremely resilient to most physical harm, he is not quite completely invulnerable and is susceptible to temporary injury from physical forces usually delivered to him by some of his super-powered enemies (during a story where the JLA faced an insane J'onn J'onz, Superman admitted "I can count on one hand the beings I would genuinely be afraid to face. J'onn is top of that list."). Superman's ability to gain energy from sunlight may be counter-acted if he is badly beaten so quickly that his body doesn't have time to heal (as happened in his battle with Doomsday). In some spin-off media, he has been shown to be similarly vulnerable to electricity, a weakness exploited by nemeses Conduit and Live Wire."

This will probably nothing like MK vs. DCU. Probably more like MK since the same people are making it. And that means it should be good.

If I got this game I would be kicking ass with the flash. @14 that was the first thing I thought when looking at the image, was that the flash looks really bad ass.!

I hope they release the characters in their iconic costumes. A pre New 52. Because New 52 is an abomination and pure garbage. I liked the way they looked in MK vs DCU. Hopefully it will have all those characters like Deathstroke, Lex Luthor, Captain Marvel, Green Lantern, Catwoman & Darkseid.

I'm hoping for Nightwing, Deadshot, Aquaman, Green Arrow, Martian Manhunter, Black Manta, Captain Cold, Poison Ivy, Black Ligtning, Booster Gold, Cheshire, Dr. Fate, Firestorm, Sgt. Rock, Gorilla Grodd, Hawkman, Circe, Atrocitus, Lobo, Metallo, Power Girl, Red Tornado, Zatanna & Weather Wizard

+ more as DLC
