E3 2012: New Warner Bros. Fighting Game Features Batman, Superman and Other DC Favorites (Video)
The NetherRealm Studios development asks "what if our greatest heroes became our greatest threat?"
There’s no The Dark Knight Rises game coming out this summer, but Batman fans are getting a brand new game for 2013. Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment (WBIE) and DC Entertainment will publish Injustice: Gods Among Us for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U next year. The game debuts at E3 2012 at the Los Angeles Convention Center June 5-8.
The game posits the question: What if our greatest heroes became our greatest threat? In development by award-winning NetherRealm Studios, creators of the bestselling Mortal Kombat franchise, the new fighting game franchise introduces a deep, original story featuring a large cast of favorite DC Comics icons such as Batman, Harley Quinn, Solomon Grundy, Superman, The Flash, Wonder Woman and many others.
“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 of 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.”
Set in a world where the lines between good and evil are blurred, players will experience heroes and villains engaging in epic battles on a massive scale. NetherRealm previously worked with some of these same heroes and villains in Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe back in 2008.
“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 of 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.”
