DC Universe Fighting Game

So we got a peek at what could happen when DC characters like Superman, Batman, and the Joker would appear in a fighting game in Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe. Now the makers of Mortal Kombat, NetherRealm, have made Injustice: Gods Among Us. Check out the announcement trailer:

The game appears to feature a cast of characters including Wonder Woman, Superman, Batman, Flash, Solomon Grundy, Harley Quinn, and Lex Luthor. There’s also the possibility of Captain Cold, Mister Freeze, or another ice-based villain. NetherRealm also promises a roster with “at least as many” characters as Mortal Kombat

It looks fun and interesting, but not being a fan of fighting games, I’ll probably pass. I wish Warner Bros. could focus on creating content that was more original and less reactionary to the successes of others. A DC Universe fighting game ends up drawing comparison to Marvel’s many Capcom games which are strong examples of excellent fighting games. A unifying Justice League movie would be compared to the Avengers. So Warner Bros. I hope you read this (Yeah, right): Make content worthy of your characters like Arkham City that respects the source material.
