What if our greatest heroes (you know, the ones not owned by Marvel), became our greatest threat? That’s the premise behind NeterRealm’s Injustice: Gods Among Us video game, and there’s a new trailer that teases all the fighty-fighty action.
“With Injustice: Gods Among Us, we are creating an all-new franchise with incredible battles set in the DC Comics Universe,” said Martin Tremblay, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “NetherRealm Studios is the extremely talented team behind the latest Mortal Kombat hit and it is developing a game unlike any other in the fighting genre.”
“We can’t wait to reveal Injustice: Gods Among Us because it will give our fans and gamers an epic experience as they battle like gods as their favorite DC Comics villains and heroes,” said Ed Boon, Creative Director, NetherRealm Studios. “Our team is excited to make a fighting game that is filled with fast-paced action, incredible story-telling and iconic DC Comics characters.”
Batman, kicking Grundy through a building? Batman is awesome, but the power creep is starting to become ridiculous.
While the trailer looks interesting, I get the feeling this is simply the Moral Kombat engine skinned with DC characters… again.
Injustice: Gods Among Us arrives in 2013 for the PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii U.
