This past week, gaming was abound with announcements at the Tokyo Game Show. The biggest announcement for both gamers and comic book fans was that Injustice: Gods Among Us is set to release in April of 2013. This means we will be getting Injustice well before Comic Con next summer (which sadly means no repeat of this summer’s Injustice party featuring Jessica Nigri). Injustice: Gods Among Us is the Netherreal Studios fighting game (the guys who made Mortal Kombat) being published by WB Games for those who haven’t been following.
Along with the announcement of Injustice’s release date, a new gameplay trailer was shown as well. In the trailer, we catch a glimpse at some new seriously brutal moves. Everything from Wonder Woman calling in some Amazonian assistance to Nightwing using a motorcycle to aid in his beat down, the move sets look like they have been given a serious upgrade since these characters appeared in Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe. What we can’t tell though because this gameplay footage doesn’t offer any context is if these are standard special moves or if these will be end of match moves, since fatalities won’t exist in this gaming universe. If these are those big finale moves though, there look to be some awesome minds working on the game to take the personalities of these characters and create such inspired scenes from them.
Take a look at the trailer and new screens below for Injustice: Gods Among Us, set for release in April 2013 for the XBox 360, Wii U and PlayStation 3. In the comments, let us know who else you want to see join the cast of Injustice: Gods Among Us and what kind of brutal finisher you want them to have.
