It appears that 2013 is going to be the year of the DC Comics fighting game. Joining Little Orbit's upcoming Young Justice: Legacy
fighter will be NetherRealm Studios' new mainline DC title, Injustice: Gods Among Us
, a new brawler that -- judging from Gamespot's
trailer -- will include massive destructive environments and at least 28 playable characters including Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Solomon Grundy, Harley Quinn, The Flash and likely Lex Luthor. The game is being developed by many of the minds behind 2008's Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe
, including writers Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti, and will seemingly turn heroes and villains alike against each other judging from the tag line, "What if our greatest heroes became our greatest threat?" Unlike Acclaim's 1995 fighter, Justice League Task Force
, which had heroes face evil android clones of their buds, something tells me this title will have another explanation for DC's stars punching eachother through heavily populated areas with no regard for civilian life. Check out the new trailer for Injustice: Gods Among Us
, along with screen shots and promo art, after the cut.
