INJUSTICE: GODS AMONG US Release Date, Battle Edition
Written by Tom Taylor (Star Wars: Blood Ties) with art by Jheremy Raapack (Legends Of The Dark Knight) Injustice: Gods Among Us #1 opens with a look at a not too distant future version of the DC Universe under the thumb of a super-powered dictator. After a short time, the story flashes back five years to ‘today’ where a classic-styled DC Universe with a New 52 visual flavor Superman contemplates some good news with his wife Lois and his ‘friend’ Batman. However in just the handful of pages that comprises the ninety-nine-cent digital comic, things take a very dark turn with the appearance of The Joker and Harley Quinn.
The already revealed $99.99 Injustice: Gods Among Us Collector’s Edition includes the Batman and Wonder Woman battling in the Fortress of Solitude statue, a digital copy of DC Universe animated film Justice League: Doom, New 52 character skins and a copy of the compete prequel comic. While that package looks great for fans of the comic book universe, fighting game fans appear to be the target of new $149.99 Battle Edition. This version replaces the movie and the comic with a custom-made fight stick featuring art from the game, illumination and professional gaming tournament-style lockouts for pause/guide buttons.
Injustice: Gods Among Us is set for an April 16th release on all the major consoles.
