The lights are on
This is going to be a very long weekend, as fans of DC Comics' pantheon of heroes await the release of NetherRealm's Injustice: Gods Among Us. Following the successful reboot of Mortal Kombat in 2011, Ed Boon's studio has been hard at work leveraging its experience to create something brand new.
Injustice builds upon the combined heritage of both NetherRealm and DC Comics, while introducing interactive, destructible backgrounds, visually impressive arena changes, and faithful representations of the superpowers. The title will feature a story mode similar to that found in 2011's Mortal Kombat, but those interested can get a jump on the narrative with 13 issues of prequel comics that are currently available.
Injustice: Gods Among Us arrives April 16 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii U.

Can't wait for this game!!!!!
This game looks great! I can't wait to play it.
Whew!!!! Love it!!! Love it!!!! Love it!!!!
I'm without a doubt buying this and a lot of my friends who aren't even good at fighting games want this game.
It must be the appearance of the DC characters. When they see them, its like they go all over themselves.
I can't wait until this game is out!
Wow, Batman is getting whooped.
I've actually really been enjoying this story arc in the comics. I pre ordered the collector's edition of this game, wondering if the graphic novel will give me access to the rest of the story ahead of time. Here's hoping! Tuesday can't come soon enough!
That looks awesome! I may have to pick this game up on Release day.
This is one game that will really test fan-loyalty. Sure, you may be a Batman fan, but what if Shazam or Luthor is a better fighter? Decisions, decisions.
