_____________________________________________________________________________________________ Ed Boon …
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.
All these early released E3 trailers are leaving me wondering what will actually be revealed at the show. Here we have 2011’s Mortal Kombat creators NetherRealm Studios’ upcoming title, Injustice: Gods Among Us, the new PS3 fighting game based on legendary DC Comics characters such as Batman, Superman, The Flash, and Solomon Grundy.
The fighting game genre is back, and this year, it’s bigger than ever. With many of the major fighters expected to make a comeback this year, fans of the genre will have a lot to choose from. And many sore fingers.
1: Soul Calibur V
Starting the year off with a bang is Namco Bandai’s Soul Calibur V.The weapon based fighter’s return to the spotlight after a near four year absence paves the way for a big year ahead. Soul Calibur V takes place seventeen years after the fourth installment and introduces a new cast of younger fighters, while playing host to returning favorites.
Keeping up with a tradition that began with Soul Calibur II, the fifth game in the series includes special guest character Ezio Auditore da Firenze from Ubisoft’s acclaimed Assassin’s Creed franchise. Tekken creator, Katsuhiro Harada, also gets in on the fun as a special non-playable character in the game’s Quick Match mode. Namco is promising a better online experience with Soul Calibur V, with an improved netcode to prevent nasty lag issues.
Soul Calibur V is due out in North America on January 31st followed by a February 2nd and 3rd release in Japan and Europe, respectively.
