WB Games has announced that the next game from NetherRealm Studios, the creators of the Mortal Kombat series, will be Injustice: Gods Among Us. Described as a “bold new fighting game franchise,” Injustice will pit heroes and villains from the DC Comics universe against each other in “in epic battles on a massive scale.”
Think of it as Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe, but without all those pesky ninjas.
Like the last two Mortal Kombat titles, Injustice will have a “deep, original story” that features such DC mainstays as Batman, Harley Quinn, Solomon Grundy, Superman, The Flash, Wonder Woman and many others.
“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 at 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.”
Warner Bros. will be bringing Injustice: Gods Among Us to the PS3, Wii U, and Xbox 360 sometime in 2013.
