Warner Bros. Interactive has today revealed Zatanna as the newest DLC character for DC Comic based fighting game Injustice: Gods Among Us. A new trailer has also been released, showing off the powerful magician known for casting spells by speaking backwards.
Developed by award-winning NetherRealm Studios, Injustice: Gods Among Us introduces a new franchise in the fighting game genre and a brand new story created in collaboration between NetherRealm Studios, DC Entertainment and comic book writers Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti. As the story unfolds, players will experience the power, gadgetry and unparalleled strength of some of the most popular DC Comics heroes and villains, such as Batman, Superman, The Flash, Wonder Woman, Green Arrow, Aquaman, The Joker and others, as they engage in epic battles in a world where the line between good and evil is blurred.
Zatanna will mark the first DLC character released outside of the Season Pass, and will be available beginning August 14 on Xbox LIVE Marketplace for 400 MS Microsoft Points and PlayStation Network at a price of $7.35, with no report on when the Wii U version will be gaining access to the powerful magician.

While PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 users have been enjoying their DLC shenanigans in the DC Comic fighter Injustice: God Among Us, Wii U users have had to sit by the sidelines, waiting for the day they'll be able to play one of the new roster additions. Luckily, that wait is now over with a new patch making its way to the Nintendo console bringing all the past DLC with it.

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.

NetherRealm Studios has revealed the first in-game footage of Batgirl, Injustice: Gods Among Us' next DLC character to join the DC Comics roster. The trailer reveals this Batgirl to be Barbara Gordon, the daughter of Commissioner Gordon who was paralyzed by Joker in the original DC Comics 'The Killing Joke' graphic novel.

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."

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment have today announced the Australian launch of their latest DC-infused fighting title Injustice: Gods Among Us. Developed by NetherRealm studios, the title sees various DC Comic heroes and villaisn fighting it out in a large range of arenas including Arkham Asylum, Metropolis, Atlantis, and more.
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.

Bringing these characters to life is a cast of actors, including Stephen Amell, star of the Nine Network’s upcoming new action show, Arrow, who reprises his role as the Green Arrow in the game as an unlockable “Arrow” version of the character, which players can choose to use in-game. Also featured are Kevin Conroy, as Batman; Tara Strong, as Harley Quinn and Raven; Neal McDonough as The Flash; George Newbern as Superman; Adam Baldwin as Green Lantern; and Alan Tudyk as Green Arrow (regular version).
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.

It seems Warner hadn't quite finished their trickling character reveals for the upcoming DC Comics fighting game, as a leaked image of what convincingly appears to be the character select screen for Injustice: Gods Among us shows supervillians Ares, and Killer Frost among the 22 already revealed tight-wearers (thanks Polygon).

Both new additions had already been presumed when their costumes appeared among an assortment of new Xbox Live avatar apparel last week. Four additional unannounced characters are expected to follow the game's launch as downloadable content.

Injustice: Gods Among Us is due on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U on April 17 2013.

A recent listing by Germany's Amazon page (thanks VG247) has revealed what seems to be the first downloadable content pack for yet-to-be-released fighting game Injustice: Gods Among Us. Featuring various DC Comic superheroes and villains, the new DLC pack titled 'Blackest Night' will offer various zombie skins to all characters including zombie Batman.

A trailer has also been revealed for the DLC pack which teases the skins in action, but also mentions a "zombie mode" which presumably turns everyone into the walking dead. Considering villains like Joker and Lex Luthor are already bad enough, zombie versions could only spell disaster.

Currently it isn't known whether the DLC will be Amazon exclusive or be opened up to other retailers. Until then, check out the trailer to see the skins in action and we'll keep you updated with more news as it comes.

Aquaman has been revealed as the 16th playable character in NetherRealm's upcoming DC Comic themed fighting game Injustice: Gods Among Us, with a new trailer showcasing the quite badass King of the Atlantis. Commanding his many loyal underwater creatures, the trailer gives a glimpse at just what to expect from Arthur Curry including a brief overlook at what he'll be doing story wise.

While Aquaman has long been the butt of many jokes between comic fans, this trailer definitely looks to revise that thinking with the use of a brutal finishing off move that involves sharks, the use of both melee and long-ranged attacks with his trusty trident and of course a new look based of DC's "New 52" comics.

The trailer isn't just showing off Aquaman though, as a brief glimpse is shown of Captain Marvel - better known as Shazam - however it isn't known whether Captain Marvel will be a playable character or simply based in the story mode.

Injustice: Gods Among Us will be available for PlayStation 3, Wii U and Xbox 360 on April 17th.
