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?"

OMFG! OMFG! OMFG! OMFG! OMFG! a DC Universe Fighting Game by NetherRealm! Buying this game DAY ONE!! :) and did I just read.. "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." ......SOLD and when can I pre-order this!
P.S. Sorry for all my craziness I just Love DC Universe and I love Mortal Kombat and Warner Bros and NetherRealm... etc!
not a big dc fan but this looks promising
Okay, but Batman can't kick someone that high....
Dang that doesn't look bad...it actually looks quite good. I might just get that
niiice ..i believe marvel should take the same dark approach
Looking forward to it. While I like SF and Tekken, I'm geting sick of them. I'm looking forward to seeing a new cast of fighters with a new combat style/system.
Looks awesome; hate the Batman suit. Looks like the Dick version (not meant to be read as it is presented...). Odd thing that while the Marvel Universe IS fighting itself in the AvX series, DC gets the game?
Irregardless, this game looks awesome. It was almost as if the trailer was catered for my household. Opening scenes are Flash, Batman, and Wonder Woman. I'd like to see a HUGE roster (DC Universe can supply). Let us just hope that this does not fall into the same category as Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe.
This is exactly what Mortal Kombat vs DC should have been. That being said i will most likely buy this.
I am just going to keep an eye on this game.
mk vs dc. same free fall without the rock paper scissors effect. and the heroicbrutalities actually look better well by seeing supermans. this just feels like an updated version of mk vs dc. i wonder if they will have costume selections .. id like to see cyber superman. gotta stop judging but its so obvious. well ill just wait and see. batman sounds like RAIN from MK lol it DOES
So it is kind of a Justice League Task Force 2 Haha. Looks interesting. If only it could be rated "m" then we could see some real fatality -like finishers.
Looks very interesting, will follow it closely.
Too early to tell if it's going to be any good. I'm going to hold off on any judgment until I hear more about the game.
Looks great i just hope it isnt another Dc vs Mortal Combat cause honesly that was dissapointing.
might be interesting, make a superman video game, thats what we really need......
Very interedted now. Please have more fighters than you do in DC vs MK. Still a sweet game.
Not bad!!! Looks really good
