The lights are on
Earlier this week, long-time Mortal Kombat fighter Scorpion was revealed to be the latest addition to the Injustice: Gods Among Us cast. Now we know when the yellow, masked ninja will be playable.
On June 11, the Scorpion DLC will be available for $4.99 on the PlayStation Network or 400 Microsoft Points on Xbox 360. For season pass owners, Scorpion is the third entry in a list of four promised characters.
In the video below, Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon talks with co-publisher at DC Comics Jim Lee about Scorpion’s seemingly unusual entry into the DC universe.
“As we made the first Mortal Kombat game, we actually made a comic book to introduce the story,” Boon said. “We felt that, in doing a DC game, to have a guest character who’s kind of rooted in comics seemed like a natural fit for the game.”

While you guys wait until the 11th, I'm going to go play with him right now because he came out earlier this week...
Stupid. He may be a great character, but he doesn't belong as a part of the season pass for a "DC" fighting game! I don't even care if you made him a playable character in the game or as paid DLC as much, but this is not cool for people who bought the season pass.
And you know who illustrated that MK comic book?
John Tobias, the other creator of Mortal Kombat.
......He's also the guy behind MK Mythologies: Sub-Zero....
4 characters sounds like weak DLC. If they did more then they screwed over the season pass people.
This should be at least marginally better than in MKvDCU...
If I wanted to play as scorpion I would play Mortal Kombat
I might wait for the "Injustice: Gods Among Us komplete edition" If I can wait because I played the crap out of the demo and I have some friends that have it so man it keeps getting tougher and tougher.
Its Not like Scorpion has been in a fighting game before, and maybe we should've given the spot to oh I dunno...... A DC CHARACTER WHO'S NEVER BEEN IN A FIGHTER.
Scorpion is already playable for Season Pass buyers, GameInformer you are way behind on this.
Netherealms made a statement on twitter about this.
Since there is a male MK character in Injustice, there should be female MK character as well. And I want her to be Sonya Blade. Kidding aside, why can't they make a video game on DC Superheroes vs Marvel Superheroes? Superheroes should fight superheroes and not martial arts practitioners such as karatekas, ninjas, kick boxers, wrestlers, boxers...
I really hope Rorshack is the 4th
Already got him, I like his moves and you can really spam his teleport attack for a cheap win.
But as usual, he is a damn awesome character. Get him when you can.
Get over here!
