Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment and DC Comics revealed a new brawler from Mortal Kombat‘s NetherRealm Studios focused entirely on DC’s Superhero/Villain cast. Injustice: Gods Among Us will bring the ensemble crew (confirmed characters include Batman, Harley Quinn, Solomon Grundy, Superman, The Flash, and Wonder Woman) to a new world “where the lines between good and evil are blurred”.
NetherRealm had previously played with DC’s finest in the crossover fighter Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe, but the M-for-Mature reputation of the former didn’t quite gel with the T-rating inspired by the latter. Here’s hoping a pure focus on the comic book icons will help. Expect more from the title at E3 next week.
“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.”
