Injustice Gods Among Us has to be one of the most exciting fighting games to be announced in quite some time. We now have a solid release date for the game as well as the announcement of premium and collectors editions thanks to publisher Warner Bros interactive.
You’ll be able to pit your favorite DC super heroes against each other on either PS3 or Xbox 360 this April 16th. Aside from the regular $59.99 standard edition Injustice Gods Among Us also comes in a $99 Battle Edition which includes a limited edition fight stick, 5 DLC skins and the game. The $149 comes with a collectable figurine, digital movie download and 5 skins as well as the game.
Coming off the spectacular Mortal Kombat from 2011 Nether Realm Studios has a chance to show us what they can do with the DC comics license, after 2009’s Mortal Kombat Vs. DC. Personally I was a little disappointed by the MK VS DC game due to the T rating but Injustice looks pretty awesome. That fightstick would make an excellent addition to any fighting fan’s collection.
