During Evo 2012, NetherRealm Studios(Mortal Kombat 9) presented their new game Injustice: Gods Among Us to the Fighting Game Community with 15 minutes of gameplay. They showcased how each stage in the game will have multiple levels, destructible environments, and objects that players can use to inflict damage. Aside from that, the game looks and feels a lot like Mortal Kombat with DC characters, which is not a bad thing at all.
Funny how when I first saw this game my first thought was Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe. DC fighting games got bad rep thanks to that game, but it looks like Injustice is coming to change that.
It still looks like a cool game to play with friends and the visuals look amazing for a fighting game. NetherRealms did a great job with the latest Mortal Kombat so I’m anxious to see if they can bring yet another great fighting game to the table. The whole destructible environments and multiple stages are appealing but it could be ignored in the end. It could come out as a waste of time to interact with these objects.
Injustice: Gods Among Us comes out next year for Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii U.
Oh and just in case you missed it…
