Earlier this week it was announced that both Bane and Lex Luthor would be playable characters in the upcoming video game Injustice: Gods Among Us from DC Comics and Netherrealm Studios (Mortal Kombat). Check out these images via Ed Boon’s Twitter!!!
Now to make things even more exciting for us DC fans, four classic characters have been announced! @Gamer Magazine revealed the following:
“Picking up in Gotham City, the initial moments show Metropolis utterly devastated by a nuclear explosion. Batman is seen interrogating the Joker in Gotham, during which the Man of Steel blasts through the wall and attempts to kill the Clown Prince of Crime, saying something about being drugged and duped into causing the blast. We then flash back to before the nuke detonated and take the role of Batman checking up on Joker at Arkham Asylum, after seeing sequences of familiar heroes and villains fighting in Metropolis. Sights of such characters as Aquaman, Shazam, Doomsday and Sinestro hint at coming playble fighter reveals.”
This roster only gets better and better as we get closer to the release date, I am totally sold on this game and I have already reserved the collector’s edition which comes with the statue pictured below! Badass! The best pre-order deal I could find so far is from Gamestop which features character skins and 20 playable missions from Mark Millar’s Superman Red Son!!
Injustice: Gods Among Us hits consoles this April!!
Stay tooned 😛
