'Injustice: Gods Among Us' Battle Edition and Release Date Revealed

Find out what you can get, when you can get it and another possible character revealed.

'Injustice: Gods Among Us' is almost here. Since seeing the images and videos and playing it at NYCC, the game's release date has always felt so far off. The release date as well as details for the Battle Edition have been revealed.

For some, playing with a fight stick makes all the difference. Looking at this picture makes it feel that much more real. The game is almost here.

When is it coming out? The game will be released in North America on April 16 for Xbox 360, PS3 and the Wii U system from Nintendo.

The Battle Edition package will be available in limited quantities at Gamestop and EB Games stores. The Battle Edition is only available for Xbox 360 and PS3. Here's the PS3 version, which is basically the same with a different case:

The Battle Edition will retail for $149.99. It includes the game disc, exclusive fight stick with official artwork and three exclusive skins based on Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman from the New 52. The stick is a lightweight controller that has a non-skid foam underside, a lockout feature for the Start, Select and Guide buttons as well as adjustable illumination for the buttons and joystick.

But that's not all. An image for the Collector's Edition has also been revealed.

This will (obviously) be sold separately for $99.99 at various retailers throughout Nort America for Xbox 360 and PS3. The Collector's Edition includes an exclusive DC Collectibles statue, a special collector's edition of the comic book, a digital download of the animated film Justice League: Doom and three exclusive skins.

What's worth noting (and as @SuperZeroInc also tweeted me), it looks like we have another confirmed character for the game?

And that $99.99 version is sooooo tempting.  I usually don't shell out extra cash when it comes to games, but I'm really excited for this one and that statue is quite awesome. Plus, I'm a sucker for extra costumes.

IGN's article which addresses this shows a very different looking statue/items...multiple collector's editions?

Still, that fight stick looks awesome. Which one do I buy? Can I justify both? ....Probably.

Oh, and Doomsday...XD

@JLDoom: Will that European edition work on a US console?

The EU statue is so awesome. This game though might be a reason for me to finally get my own console... lol

@JLDoom:That's the European version (the picture you've posted)?

@Decoy Elite: They have not.16 have been revealed so far (EDIT: Including Doomsday), I'm assuming that's not the whole roster.

@UlquiorraSchiffer: Liking DS, Nightwing, and Cyborg. 
Needs more Plastic Man though. Also more non-Bat related villains.

Doomsday? Interesting.

And yes, the European version is a lot better than the American one. I'll take that steelbook over Justice League Doom any day.

I feel like all the pre order DLC will be on the market a month after release.

@tejasclone: PS3 version will definitely be region free (but you'll likely need a European PSN account to download DLC). Not sure about 360.

If I had to guess, those costumes will be sold separately as DLC at some point, so I'll probably be sticking to the standard edition. I can't play for crap with a fightstick and, while the statue looks rad (the Euro one is better) I don't need MORE comic book stuff sitting around my house.

Just need


Tim Drake/Robin

Kyle Raynor/ Green Lantern

John Stewart/ Green Lantern


Barbara Gordon/ Batgirl or Cassandra Cain or Stephanie Brown

Black Canary


Red Hood

Martian Manhunter


Penguin will probably just be a non playable character in story mode, since there are rumors about him out there.

I don't which to get at all, most likely I'll end up with the collectors edition

Don't care much for the game itself though MK is pretty rubbish so a carbon copy will be horrible.

One of the bundles have a comic cover that features the symbol of Martian Manhunter and Robin....

I would be pretty confident that Manhunter and a Robin appear in this game

Aw shucks. I want to both the collectable figuring and the injustice fight stick

Avatar image for jldoom

@jwalser3: Well, I dont think I can download a statue or a steelbook ;)

But I get what youre saying, they'll probably release a complete or GOTY edition in a year

The collectors edition is cool but I think they could of done better with the figure. So is it safe to say that this story line will turn into the Red Son comic pretty fast?

Hey check this out.

Yesterday, Lex Luthor and Bane were revealed as playable characters in the upcoming DC Comics fighting game, Injustice: Gods Amongs Us. The reveal came from leaked images of the new @Gamer magazine, and now today new information and images have surfaced from that very same article. This time we learn a bit about the plot and more importantly, learn that Aquaman, Sinestro, Doomsday and Shazam will all be playable characters.

Excerpt from the article:
Picking up in Gotham City, the initial moments show Metropolis utterly devastated by a nuclear explosion. Batman is seen interrogating the Joker in Gotham, during which the Man of Steel blasts through the wall and attempts to kill the Clown Prince of Crime, saying something about being drugged and duped into causing the blast. We then flash back to before the nuke detonated and take the role of Batman checking up on Joker at Arkham Asylum, after seeing sequences of familiar heroes and villains fighting in Metropolis.Sights of such characters as Aquaman, Shazam, Doomsday and Sinestro hint at coming playble fighter reveals.

@Decoy Elite: Ditto, doubt it'll happen though, in a world where Batman dominates everything from Comics to Videogames to Movies.
