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?
