It shouldn’t come as any surprise that Deathstroke would find his way into the new DC fighter from NetherRealm Studios (the team behind Mortal Kombat) entitled Injustice: Gods Among Us. While it is still strange that they have yet to put DC anywhere in the title of the game, it does make sense that they would choose to add DC’s top anti-hero to their roster.
In the trailer below, you’ll see how Deathstroke’s personal arsenal of weaponry and fighting techniques lend themselves perfectly to the fighting game genre. Between his array of fighting styles and seemingly unending supply of guns and swords, this mercenary is ready for MK style combat. This also isn’t Deathstroke’s first fighting game appearance as he made his video game debut in Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe as the DC counterpart to Baraka.
As mentioned, Deathstroke’s offense is a combination of martial art skills, guns and swordplay just like his character in the comics. Even though “he who shall not be named” has been removed from the DC roster, this connection to the Deathstroke’s creator hasn’t sullied the character enough to get in the way of his appearance in the game.
Take a peek below at some screens and the trailer for Deathstroke, coming to Injustice: Gods Among Us for the XBox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U, set for an April 2013 release.
