Injustice: Gods Among Us Launch Trailer

1 min read


The new, DC-infused fighting game from the creators of Mortal Kombat is out this week, letting comic-book fans finally answer the questions of who’d win in a no-holds-barred bit of fisticuffs between their favourite heroes and villains. Injustice: Gods Among Us brings comic-book battles to life on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 later this week – and here’s its launch trailer.

The game tells an alternate universe tale of Superman’s decent into madness, becoming a global despot after a tragedy that has him killing the ones he loves; and the heroes that are tasked with putting an end to his reign. A new story, penned in collaboration with comic-book writers Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti (the same folks who wrote MK vs DC Universe), Injustice continues the story-based fighting we saw in MK vs DCU and Mortal Kombat 9.

built on the same graphics engine, It’s easy to imagine it would just be a superhero reskin of Mortal Kombat, but it comes with a a wealth of new fighting mechanics, closer to Marvel vs Capcom in its button layout and general play – plus some shiny new Street Fighter-esque dash cancels for those who like a little depth in their fighters.

Here’s that trailer. Take a look – and tell us who you’ll be maining when the game’s released locally on Friday.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
