Injustice: Gods Among Us SDCC Trailer


I had a chance to meet Ed Boon, and play Injustice: Gods Among Us at the Comic Con last week. Although I am not a big Mortal Kombat nor DC Comics fan, I thought the game was fun and that DC comics and Mortal Kombat fans will love it.


Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment released this new gameplay trailer for Injustice: Gods Among Us revealing characters showcased at the San Diego Comic-Con.

Injustice: Gods Among Us is an all-new game in development by award-winning NetherRealm Studios, creators of the definitive fighting game franchise Mortal Kombat. The game is scheduled for release in 2013 for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and the Wii U™ system from Nintendo.

Injustice: 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, Solomon Grundy, Superman, The Flash, Wonder Woman and many others. 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.

    Ok, seriously? It looks like an outstanding beat-em-up, but it doesn’t work with the characters! The storyline has to be epic in order for them to all start fighting amongst themselves, that I can give them, it has to be even better to have them all go against their own values (unless they all similtaniously go nuts?), and if you’re going to put Superman in a beat em up, he wins. The clip that shows Flash smashing Supermans head against the bonnet of a car… This game would almost work if you had Superman die at the begining, striking him from the game and giving an interesting reason for all the others to, loose it?

    Psh, give me Soul Calibur and Street Fighter any day of the week…

    That right there is exactly why DC has such trouble with their characters. Even for a fighting game people still complain if Superman loses. It’s a fighting game. Not like they made a Superman game and the last level kills Superman ala Call of Duty. You literally can’t put Superman in a game and make anyone happy. To be a good game you have to be able to lose, but the second Superman dies everyone wants to whine that Superman can’t lose. It’s a completely banal argument in my opinion. ESPECIALLY in a fighting game. Why can’t we just have a DC fighting game? Because the second you put a meter on Superman people complain that Superman’s meter should never run out. What they need to do as I’ve said before and it looks like they’re doing is just ignore it. Ignore it completely and make the game. Superman has his moves but in terms of invulnerability, and life span it’s just another character. Not everything has to be canon. The fighting games are never supposed to represent how the characters would battle in a canon situation.

    What’s funny is how much this is exclusively a DC complaint too. Noone ever complains when you can kill Wolverine in spite of the fact that unlike Superman Wolverine doesn’t appear to ever age. He’s pretty much the definition of immortal based on what I’ve picked up. His last game (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) did a decent job of making him never die so i hear but he dies in the XML and MUA games but noone bats an eye. No one complains when Goku loses a match in a DBZ fighting game even against someone like young Gohan. If Ranma loses to Akane in a Ranma fighting game it doesn’t mean that Akane is stronger than Ranma. There has to be a point where the game is just a game and nothing more. Fighting games ESPECIALLY.

    i would probably have the same complaint about other franchises I knew more about (remeber if you will my rant on the Resi movie and how uch of a wuss Wesker was only when compared to the userper Alice) but one thing you have to remember is that Wolverine can still have his arse kicked. Superman unless presented with kryptonite or a villain with equal strength or stronger is usualy a push over. His normal weakness (his hopeless ‘goodness’) is washed away by putting him in a beat-em-up.

    Doesn’t look too bad, reminds me of Mortal Kombat a lot.

    I could live with this game if it gets a compelling story. MK VS DC was eh, fun but eh story.
