Beyond a few hints, we still don’t really know why the DC Universe heroes are fighting each other in NetherRealm’s Injustice: Gods Among Us. The latest trailer doesn’t explain everything, but it gives us a few clues.
The latest trailer – aptly titled “Story Trailer” – seeks to explain a bit of the background behind the world of Injustice. Joker has apparently destroyed Metropolis, Superman and Wonder Woman are subjecting mankind to an iron fist rule ala Red Son, and Batman seems to be the freedom fighter trying to bring order to the chaos. All in all, your typical alternate world DC plot.
The trailer also gives us our first look at Hawkgirl, who might be a playable character in the game.
The trailer indicates that the story will please long time DC fans, but will the gameplay satisfy notoriously picky fighting game fans? The studio’s previous title, Mortal Kombat 9, won over critics and players alike. Injustice will do just fine if it retains the same accessible, yet highly tuned, fighting system that its predecessor sported.
Injustice: Gods Among Us will launch on April 16 for the Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii U.
