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.
