Justice League in-fighting is nothing new, but button mashers and Hadouken specialists alike will have another chance to pit their favorite DC Comics characters in savage pixel brawls once more in 2013. The creators behind 2008′s Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe–including writers Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray–are back with a new one-on-one 3D fighting game focused solely on DC heroes and villains, called Injustice: Gods Among Us. Leading the charge in a newly released cinematic trailer, the cast includes Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Harley Quinn and Solomon Grundy, with over twenty more playable characters yet to be revealed.
And if you thought the New 52 had a lot of piping, wait until you see these duds. Note the presence of the controversial Wonder-pants as well as a Bat cowl design highly reminiscent of the headgear seen in the Nolan film trilogy.
The fighting game market is pretty tricky and territorial these days. Are the MK engine and sensibilities coupled with a cast derived solely from DC Comics enough to draw players away from the Marvel Vs. Capcom brand or the dozens of tried and true Street Fighter variations available for cheap on virtual consoles? We’ll find out sometime next year when Injustice: Gods Among Us hits Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and the Wii U.
