Developer NetherRealm Studios has updated the game with a new patch, putting it at version 1.1.0, and existing DLC is now available for purchase in the eShop after almost two and half months since its launch. In early May the studio stated that the DLC would be making its way to the Wii U, however no date was set.
The DLC includes the four new additions to the roster: Lobo, Batgirl, Scorpion and General Zod, with each one costing $4.99. Currently the Season Pass - which offers a 25% discount over purchasing each character individually - is not listed on the eShop, and not known whether it will be showing up.
Costume DLC is also now available on the Wii U including the Joker's quite touching tropical vacation garb which was the outfit worn in the graphic novel. The costume packs range from $0.99 through to $3.99. Sadly no online lobby system has yet been added to the game, however hopefully it is still in the works for those craving the online multiplayer.

Utilising the training from Batman and Robin, Batgirl shows off her moves against an aptly themed Joker dressed in his tropical vacation garb which was the outfit worn in the graphic novel. No date was sadly given on when Batgirl will be available but a price of 400 Microsoft Points and $7.35 for the PSN was offered. Presumably the Killing Joke costume pack will also be released alongside Batgirl, as was the case with the launch of Lobo.
For those wondering when the Wii U copy of Injustice: Gods Among Us would be gaining all these DLC packs, fear not as NetherRealm revealed through the game's official Twitter that we can expect "DLC for the Wii U version of Injustice: Gods Among Us to be available this summer. Stay tuned for more details."

Injustice: Gods Among Us features numerous locales pulled from DC Comics lore including Arkham Asylum, Metropolis, Atlantis, and more. The arenas are multi-tiered, destructible, interactive playgrounds in which players can unleash each character’s unique super powers, individual move-sets and environmental interactions to beat their opponents. Fans can also extend their experience by playing the S.T.A.R. Labs missions, which offer players a wealth of additional content and unique gameplay that are outside of the game’s story mode experience.Oddly enough the launch only coincides with the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions, with the Wii U having been delayed by a week to April 24 for unknown reasons. Check out the launch trailer below for a glimpse at what to expect.
