skins! a physical comic book!

i wonder if the figurine will vary
Dev7 - 1/15/2013, 8:26 AM
This game doesn't look half bad. Why is it that DC is good to fairly descent in everything BUT live action movies for there characters other than 1 character (Batman) of course.
Jollem - 1/15/2013, 8:33 AM
watchmen and v for vendetta are pretty damn quality
Christuffer - 1/15/2013, 8:47 AM
Heck yah, but maybe not this version. The only thing worth having is the new skin. But of course, I love to collect "Collector's Editions". So...we will see.

I just want to know what all the characters are.
Christuffer - 1/15/2013, 8:47 AM
And also, just throwing this out there: Rorschach for downloadable character. Just sayin'

That statue of Batman and Wonder Woman would never happen........

Not feeling the Mortal Kombat fighting engine for the DC characters. I'll give it a shot

I might rent this never really got into Mortal Kombat or games like it.
AnotherSinisterClone - 1/15/2013, 8:56 AM
anyone know why the statue is diff then the one that was posted months ago? i pre ordered it for the statue of wonder woman about to kill batman with Superman's ship, this one is lame.

lol@Orson

Unfortunately that Injustice Statue is the Uk version. The US version has Wonder Woman with the Lasso around Batman's neck. It is a lot less cool but I'll still probably pick it up.

Aawww none for PC? :(
PsyGuy - 1/15/2013, 9:21 AM
I really love the new 52 skins!
Rhino4508 - 1/15/2013, 9:52 AM
I am so getting the collector's edition
jessepostal - 1/15/2013, 10:00 AM
Is that a New skin on the fight stick from the last mk??
AEStark - 1/15/2013, 10:08 AM
I don't know if anyone else noticed but doomsday is on the arcade stick, which pretty much confirms the information from the other day.
dezdigi - 1/15/2013, 10:12 AM
Awesome sauce. Either way, I'm getting this game. Can't wait for the rest of the character reveals!
TonyChu - 1/15/2013, 10:28 AM
Does Batman have to choke a bitch!
MutantEquality - 1/15/2013, 10:46 AM
I played the hell out of the new Mortal Kombat so this will be epic. It would be awesome to have a tournament involving people from this site. This is going to be too much fun!
jessepostal - 1/15/2013, 10:53 AM
@mutant, good call, I'm down!
GhostKILLERgx7 - 1/15/2013, 11:13 AM
@mutantEquality you play for xbox or ps3?
CavEl - 1/15/2013, 11:20 AM
The story mode is basically Batman vs. Superman. -_-/

And of course, Batman is the one who's the good guy and Superman is the one gone rouge. Isn't it funny how the least trusting, douchiest, controllingest member of the Justice League is the one that people always want to deem the incorruptible and never would do wrong, but the good guy is the one who they always flip? -_-
CavEl - 1/15/2013, 11:25 AM


This picture just screams who's the bad guy in the story.
AnditsOn1 - 1/15/2013, 11:36 AM
@PatriotsSuperguy,couldn't agree more. I wanna destroy every single DC staff just for that reason for a lot of times....but i guess the reason for that is mostly because if superman gone bad, things are pretty bleak for the rest of the hero (he is so super...), while despite all those stupid bat-god crap, when it comes to turning batman into a major villian against world, writers instantly realize he is the least threat the heros can ever face...so, they keep quiet and continue to promote their bat-god crap even though they know it's the most ridiculous thing in the world...
subzero1077 - 1/15/2013, 11:47 AM
@ jessepostal No, thats def a new arcade stick. It has more buttons than the one on the MK controller.

I'm really excited about this. You can tell Netherealm Studios has some real quality control compared to the now defunct Midway.
Rhino4508 - 1/15/2013, 11:52 AM
Hate that this isn't that statue for the American Collector's Edition. American style has WW and Batman in the armored suits with her strangling Batman and about to slam something into him.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 1/15/2013, 12:14 PM
So new 52 and Arkham city skins. Sweet. Still hate the front cover though.
CoolantTech - 1/15/2013, 12:25 PM
Meh... Not a fan of the Mortal Kombat fighting engine, now if the had the Tekken Fight engine I'd be all for it
SimyJo - 1/15/2013, 12:57 PM
All of the DLC included here in these collector's edition and battle-edition will be released later on some-time after launch. So yes, standard-edition will be fine by me, i'll pick up the extra DLC later on, and tbh can do without that mediocre statue or a lightweight and flimsy arcade-style gamepad.
IronHood - 1/15/2013, 1:09 PM
Doomsday's on the fighting joystick!
MisterMagurlypse - 1/15/2013, 4:23 PM
Awesome stuff! But, I think I'll just stick to the regular version. I'm getting the Wii U for my daughters b-day, in April as well, so I'm not going to have enough for any special editions.
CeltiC527 - 1/15/2013, 7:26 PM
Can't wait!!!!!!!

@Celtic527 - That's sweet. Got me more hyped for this game.
mgeoff88 - 1/15/2013, 10:28 PM
Hell Yeah! I haven't been this excited for a fighting game in awhile!

Those DLC skins are awesome! Superman's MOS suit, WW's New 52 suit, and Batman's Arkham City suit.

@CeltiC Wow, Green Lantern looks really cool.
MutantEquality - 1/15/2013, 10:48 PM
I'm going Ps3 on this one. When it comes out any and EVERYONE from here should get a tournament going and post results. Oh man. Let do that. I'm absolutly excited.
dezdigi - 1/16/2013, 8:26 AM
@MutantE,
I'd love to join a tourney. I'll probably get my ass handed to me!
MutantEquality - 1/16/2013, 11:12 AM
Who cares if you get your ass handed to you. Just about being apart of something epic and comic book! be cool to record the final battle and post it up on here. I'd love that!
dezdigi - 1/16/2013, 12:29 PM
Right on. I hope this happens!
