Good news for you folks that decided not to go for Injustice: Gods Among Us when it was first released; NetherRealm Studios has announced that they will be releasing an “Ultimate Edition” of the superhero-fighting game just in time for the holiday season. What makes this release so “ultimate,” you ask?
Well, how about the fact that it’ll be bundled with about $60 worth of DLC characters (which includes Lobo, Batgirl, Zatanna, Martian Manhunter, General Zod, and even Scorpion!), skins, and other goodness. That’s right; on top of the game itself, you’ll be getting every post-release add-on, for the price of the original release!
If you have yet to play this game, it is definitely worth checking out for yourself if you’re a fan fighting games (specifically the Mortal Kombat franchise), or a fan of DC Comics. I mean, who doesn’t want to send someone through four buildings with one punch? If you’re one of the people whose response to that question was “Well, gee, I’m just not a fan of over-the-top violence,” then you don’t need to worry about the Ultimate Edition when it releases November 12th in the Americas (November 29th everywhere else). Also, be sure to check out the official press release below.
