It’s almost here Towelites! Injustice: Gods Among Us from DC Comics, WB Games, and NetherRealm Studios hits stores on Tuesday! In fact a lot of Gamestops are participating in the midnight launch for the game. My local store will be holding a tournament for the game prior to the release and will be awarding gift cards to the winner(s). Sounds like a plan! As you all know I’ve been hyping this game for a long time, probably since its announcement, and I am eagerly anticipating getting my collector’s edition and all the goodies that go with it, including the awesome statue that will be taking its place on my shelf! There will also be an online event happening over on Twitch TV, in congruence with the release of the game. The Injustice Battle Arena LIVE FINALE will be featured and they’ve got some exciting plans for the event, including:
– Giveaways, including the Injustice game & comic!
– The first DLC Character Announcement! Here are my speculations: Hawkman, Black Canary, Black Manta, and Red Hood (Too Many Good Guys on my list, I think). Will we see Darkseid? Yes I think as the overall villain as per DC vs Mortal Kombat. But that may be too easy.
– The winner of the Batman vs. Superman match-up – & more!
So be there or be square! Check out to final videos below for the game including the release trailer and the BRUTAL opening sequence to the game! Get at me in the comments if any of you Towelites end up picking the game up for PS3 and maybe we can jam online!
And now that you see where Superman‘s destiny is headed in this storyline, check out an alternate skin for him in the game entitled “Godfall“. Has the Man of Steel gone too far this time?!
Don’t forget that there is an iOS game out there on the APP Store for FREE, that you can put some time into to unlock some great bonus content INCLUDING CHARACTER SKINS!!!, in the console version and vice-versa! Check out this video from IGN explaining the how it works:
“Gods Among Us” debuts as a bold new fighting game franchise that introduces a deep, original story featuring a large cast of favorite DC Comics icons such as Batman, Cyborg, Harley Quinn, Nightwing, Deathstroke, Solomon Grundy, Superman, Lex Luthor, The Flash, Green Arrow, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Aquaman, Bane, Catwoman, Shazam, Black Adam, Raven, the Joker, Doomsday, Killer Frost, Ares and more. 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.
Stay tooned 😛
