What happens when the developers of the "Mortal Kombat" games take the DC comic license, drop the MK characters and make a fighting game with no blood or fatalities? If you said, "Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe 2" you're dead wrong. You get "Injustice: Gods Among Us."
You'll notice that no one has jumped to judge the upcoming fighting game from NetherRealm Studios, even though they've said there will be no blood and no ripping of body parts. Apparently removing "Mortal Kombat" from the title was what made people mad about "Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe" being so tame.
Regardless, if you're looking forward to taking your favorite DC superheros against each other, you don't have long to wait. Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment officially announced today the game will land on retail shelves April 16, much better then their "April" release window.
The company also announced the Battle Edition of the game, and it looks pretty sick. The Battle Edition is different from the Collector's Edition which was previously announced. The Battle Edition will retail for $149.99, and is only available for the Xbox 360 and PS3 ports of the game.
Pictured above is the fight stick included in the Battle Edition, which accounts for the high buy end price of the package. You also get three DLC skins of Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman to go along with the current DC Comics The New 52 revamping. The fightstick offers "adjustable illumination" for the joystiq and buttons, in case you wanna play in the dark.
