Mortal Kombat studio behind Injustice: Gods Among Us
Posted by Patrick Sauriol on Thursday, May 31, 2012
Last year's reboot of the Mortal Kombat video game franchise was well-received by critics and consumers. It rejuvinated the franchise and gave much-needed credibility to Warner Bros. Interactive and NetherRealm Studios, the development team behind the game.
The Warner Bros. connection has yielded a new benefit for the NetherRealm team in the form of Injustice: Gods Among Us, a new game that was announced this morning. Unlike the Mortal Kombat universe, Injustice will use the heroes and villains from DC Comics and allow players to battle with them in "massive scale" battles.
The new game is being targeted for a 2013 release, so we're in the early cycle of the marketing. That means we don't have a game trailer or much in the way of images showing what we can expect in Injustice, just the usual feel-good quotes from the leaders associated with the game's development.
"With Injustice: Gods Among Us, we are creating an all-new franchise with incredible battles set in the DC Comics Universe,” said Martin Tremblay, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “NetherRealm Studios is the extremely talented team behind the latest Mortal Kombat hit and it is developing a game unlike any other in the fighting genre.”
“We can’t wait to reveal Injustice: Gods Among Us because it will give our fans and gamers an epic experience as they battle like gods as their favorite DC Comics villains and heroes,” said Ed Boon, Creative Director, NetherRealm Studios and co-creator of the Mortal Kombat franchise. “Our team is excited to make a fighting game that is filled with fast-paced action, incredible story-telling and iconic DC Comics characters.”
We also know that the game's large cast will feature such DC Comics characters as Batman, The Flash and Wonder Woman and villains Harley Quinn and Solomon Grundy. We've also been told that the world where Injustice takes place blurs the lines between the heroes and villains.
A website for the game just went online at www.injustice.com but it only features a static image of three of the characters you'll play in Injustice: Gods Among Us.
