For those fighting and comic gamers that have been living under a rock since SDCC, the makers of Mortal Kombat are bringing the DC Universe back to the realm of fighters with Injustice: Gods Among Us. While its odd still that there is no DC branding in the title, Injustice places some of the most popular members of the DC roster against each other in a T rated fighting arena. Creative director Ed Boon promises to push that T rating as far as he can given the limitations put in place by DC and WB Games.
New to the cast along DC favorites like Batman, Superman and Harley Quinn is Catwoman. Between her longtime popularity amongst comic readers and the most recent role she placed in the Dark Knight Rises, it is almost a no brainer to put her in the game. Catwoman’s signature whip and claws are her main offense while she moves across the arena nimbly like an Olympic gymnast. Take a look at the full reveal trailer below to see Selena Kyle in action.
Story details are still pretty up in the air for Injustice. There is going to need to be some strong outside force influencing heroes to face off against each other, similar to Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe. They are also going to have to address the varied power levels of characters too. How is Superman going to get taken down by Batman just repeatedly punching him in the face? How is Solomon Grundy going to be able to even connect with a punch on the Flash? All of this will likely be addressed in the story to hopefully explain the gameplay balancing taking place.
Injustice: Gods Among Us is schedule for release in 2013 for the XBox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U. Stay tuned to The Flickcast for more on this highly anticipated fighter as more news develops.
