Injustice Gods Among Us Gets a Release Date
Today, Warner Bros. Interactive announced that Injustice: Gods Among Us—the DC Comics-based fighting game—will be launched on April 16 in North America for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii U. Not only that, but they’ll be releasing two different collectors’ editions of the game that include some fancy-schmancy extras.
The “Battle Edition,” pictured above, will cost $149.99, and will include the game, a crazy-big fight-stick, and three exclusive in-game character skins for Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman. The $99.99 priced “Collector’s Edition” below features the game, a stature of Batman and Wonder Woman fighting in Superman’s Fortress of Solitude, a collector’s edition of the Gods Among Us comic book, a digital download of the animated movie, Justice League: Doom, and the three character skins. PHEW! THAT’S A LOT OF STUFF.
And at the end of it all…I’m still not convinced that this game is a good idea. I probably just need to sit and play it, and that may change my mind. Maybe it’s the fact that the New 52 reboot that hit the DC Universe last year still makes me feel yucky inside. Maybe it’s just the fact that Capcom nailed the comic book fighter in 2D, and I’m skeptical about this 3D craziness. Maybe I just need lunch.
