The lights are on
Today, Warner Bros. Studios announced that it is releasing a new game developed by Mortal Kombat developer NetherRealm Studios titled Injustice: Gods Among Us.
The game is set in the DC universe and according to WB, players will be able to play as both heroes and villains in a world where "the lines between good and evil are blurred." The fact that it is being developed by NetherRealm, immediately conjures images of the classic Mortal Kombat series which they developed in recent years. However, WB has stated that the game contains "epic battles on a massive scale," which is extremely different from the one-on-one fighting games that the developer is known for.
Whatever the style of this game is, the President of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment declares that Injustice: Gods Among Us will be "unlike any other in the fighting genre" and will involve rich storytelling and a large cast of DC favorites.
The game is scheduled for release in 2013 for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and Wii U, and poses the question: "What if our greatest heroes became our greatest threat?"

You have my attention, I just need to know more now...
Very cool. Although it was far from perfect, I enjoyed Mortal Kombat vs. DCU a lot. I hope this will up the ante and do enough new things to be everything that game could have been.
Awesome! Can't wait to see more.
I want this. I want this a lot.
I shall buy it
What about the reveal trailer and screenshots, I have already seen the trailer elsewhere but where are the screenshots?
Awesome!!! More epic DC comic games!!! just hope it's not a fighting game. i really hate them in general.
Game looks awesome from the trailer, I hope it plays similar to the new Mortal Kombat
MK 9 was damn good, both in fighting mechanics/gameplay and the storymode, which was very ambitious for a fighting game. I'm a little worried about gameplay and less worried about the story. Maybe it'll be Warner Bros/NetherRealm's take on Kingdom Come with the New 52 universe
