In 2008, Midway released Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe on the PS3 and Xbox 360. The fighting game was a strange crossover that worked for some while not exactly winning the favor of others. NetherRealm redeemed itself earlier this year with the exclusively DC fighter Injustice: Gods Among Us, but now the developers will be introducing one character from the Mortal Kombat universe into the game.
NetherRealm announced today that Scorpion, arguably the most recognizable character from Mortal Kombat, will be joining the roster of Injustice as a DLC character. The coolest part about Scorpion’s inclusion is that Jim Lee will create a new design for the character so that he fits more easily into the DC Universe.
Previously, NetherRealm had announced Lobo and Batgirl as the first two DLC characters for Injustice. There will be more DLC characters release for the game, but it’s unknown if the developers will include more characters from the Mortal Kombat universe.
Oh, and for you Martian Manhunter fans, you’ll want to watch the end of the trailer for a little surprise.
