Warner Bros. Interactive Announces 'Injustice: Gods Among Us'

Get ready for a new fighting game franchise from the creators of Mortal Kombat.

What do we often see in comic books? We usually see superheroes fighting supervillains. But that isn't always how it goes. Often we see hero fighting hero for whatever reason. It's a great treat for readers as we always discuss who would win in a fight if two heroes were pitted against each other. We're about to get that scenario in video game format. Warner Bros. Interactive asks, "What if our greatest heroes became our greatest threat?"

Warner Bros. Interactive has announced Injustice: Gods Among Us from the award-winning NetherRealm Studios. If you didn't already know, they're the creators of the Mortal Kombat franchise (and are also responsible for 2008's Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe). he 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.

The game will feature a large cast including Batman, Harley Quinn, Solomon Grundy, Superman, Flash, Wonder Woman and many others. The line between good and evil has been blurred and we'll be seeing heroes and villains fighting epic battles on a massive scale.

Interestingly enough, the press release for this announcement left out some crucial information. Our friends over at GameSpot have even more information (and some screenshots that I'm borrowing).

It turns out that Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti are the ones responsible for coming up with a way for all of this to go down. This is great news for comic fans as having actual comic book writers involved will add to the credibility of the way the characters are used.

Be sure to check out GameSpot's coverage as they have loads more details on how the game and environment will work.

If that wasn't enough, GameSpot even has the announcement trailer.

As soon as this game is in the building, I'm going to have to find out who has a copy.
