The lights are on
Following in the footsteps of Mortal Kombat, Injustice: Gods Among Us is getting a Vita release, and it will be here soon. NetherRealm Studios' creative director teased big news on Twitter over the weekend, and now we know that the Armature Studios-developed port will be here next month.
This version of Injustice is considered the "ultimate" edition, which means that all of the additional characters are on-hand. Armature is also touting 60fps fighting on the Vita version, along with all of the destructible environments and other features of the original console releases. Additionally, High Voltage is working on a PlayStation 4 version that will feature touchpad functionality and in-game streaming. A PC version is also in development at High Voltage. All of the character skins are included in the Ultimate Edition. The version released in the Americas will also include an 11-song soundtrack with music from Jane's Addiction, Depeche Mode, and AWOLNATION.
Ultimate editions for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 will join the PC, PS4, and Vita versions on November 12, 2013. The console versions will be $59.99. The PC version will be $49.99. The Vita iteration will retail for $39.99.
Our TakeThe Vita port of Mortal Kombat was a great experience, and even included additional content designed to take advantage of the Vita's features. My hopes are high for an equally impressive version of Injustice. The only bad news about this is that the roster of DLC characters coming to the console version is likely complete. On the bright side, now we get to look forward to NetherRealm's next project. Shaolin Monks 2 anyone?

The ports for PS4, Vita, and PC is a pretty cool announcement. The Ultimate Edition for PS3 and 360 is great too, albeit Ultimate or GOTY editions are somewhat expected these days. Thank you near-endless-backlog-of-games for "allowing" me to wait!
Nice. I'll have to pick up the Vita version.
lol feel sorry for everyone that bought the DLC ill be getting this when its cheaper
Awesome. Will probably pick this up for my Vita a bit down the road
Hopefully they add an option to disable the left analog on the Vita versions. Big hands problems
Why High Voltage. Just Why?! again the slow-mo.
Gimme all the Shaolin Monks.
So i get it.. it's great to be on PC as it released last with the GOTY/Ultimate/Director's Cut/WhateverVersionYouNamedIt with all DLC stuff in it and with a discounted price. What's not great to be on PC? :P
So it's going to basically every system except the Xbox One (and Nintendo systems).
Strange they would make if for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PS4 but not the Xbox One.
Shaolin Monks 2?!?!?! I enjoyed the first game so much!
