The Tokyo Game Show is annual video game convention, not dissimilar to E3. Like E3 there is always a wealth of exciting announcements that are made and often we see more of games that were only previewed at E3. One of those games is Injustice: Gods Among Us, a DC universe fighting game from the creators of Mortal Kombat, NeatherRealm Studios.

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment confirmed that Injustice: Gods Among Us will be appearing in stores worldwide in April 2013. The game will be released on PS3, Xbox 360, PC and Wii-U. Part of the press release read as follows:

Injustice: Gods Among Us debuts as a bold new fighting game franchise that introduces a deep, original story featuring a large cast of favorite DC Comics icons such as Batman, Cyborg, Harley Quinn, Nightwing, Solomon Grundy, Superman, The Flash, Wonder Woman and many others.  Set in a world where the lines between good and evil are blurred, players will experience heroes and villains engaging in epic battles on a massive scale.

To accompany this exciting announcement new trailers and screen shots were released. Injustice: Gods Among Us looks to be a very interesting approach, transferring established characters into a very unfamiliar fighting game. Many of DC’s characters, especially Batman, have branched off successfully into the video game market and so I:GAU could continue this success. Arguably this could be DC muscling in on Marvel’s territory who have a strong foot in the fighting game genre with the long running Marvel VS Capmom series. Either way this certainly looks like the next best comic book inspired game to hit the shelves. Bad luck Deadpool
