'Injustice: Gods Among Us' Battle Edition and Release Date Revealed

Find out what you can get, when you can get it and another possible character revealed.

'Injustice: Gods Among Us' is almost here. Since seeing the images and videos and playing it at NYCC, the game's release date has always felt so far off. The release date as well as details for the Battle Edition have been revealed.

For some, playing with a fight stick makes all the difference. Looking at this picture makes it feel that much more real. The game is almost here.

When is it coming out? The game will be released in North America on April 16 for Xbox 360, PS3 and the Wii U system from Nintendo.

The Battle Edition package will be available in limited quantities at Gamestop and EB Games stores. The Battle Edition is only available for Xbox 360 and PS3. Here's the PS3 version, which is basically the same with a different case:

The Battle Edition will retail for $149.99. It includes the game disc, exclusive fight stick with official artwork and three exclusive skins based on Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman from the New 52. The stick is a lightweight controller that has a non-skid foam underside, a lockout feature for the Start, Select and Guide buttons as well as adjustable illumination for the buttons and joystick.

But that's not all. An image for the Collector's Edition has also been revealed.

This will (obviously) be sold separately for $99.99 at various retailers throughout Nort America for Xbox 360 and PS3. The Collector's Edition includes an exclusive DC Collectibles statue, a special collector's edition of the comic book, a digital download of the animated film Justice League: Doom and three exclusive skins.

What's worth noting (and as @SuperZeroInc also tweeted me), it looks like we have another confirmed character for the game?

What's the storyline?

@Gambit1024
 
The typical Superman is the bad guy and Batman is the good guy, so he must take him down...
 
Basically Superman vs Batman...Except Superman is evil...Bat fanboys will love this game...At least in storyline.

Oh :(

@Gambit1024: It had to be this year >_>
 
I will still choose Supers( and Aquaman) to beat the crap outta Batman.

O Great, another Superman is Evil story, and batman is a perfect saint. man I want to like this game.

Doomsday makes this awesome.

And Justice League: Doom is a great film, for those who haven't seen it.

Posted by pingclang

Anyone else notice the positioning of the joystick on that controller.

Edited by Black_Claw

Holy Crap! Doomsday?! Things just got a hell of a lot more interesting. Still got my fingers crossed for Swamp Thing, Static, and Starfire.

I know, right? At least there's Man of Steel to even things out...

Edited by LaserLambert

@SmashBrawler: yeah, but still 75 YEARS OF SUPERMAN, and this is how they honor him? come on... even things out nothing, this should be the year of Superman.

DOOMSDAY! ^-^

Doomsday, Aquaman, Sinestro and Shazam were confirmed last week.

Posted by mk111

@Birthright:

Yeah, but this is our first look at Doomsday's design.

Posted by FiguredOut95

@Spideycap: yes it will.

Posted by SmashBrawler

@LaserLambert: I know, I know. However, I still think the good evens out the bad. I mean, if we go by what's more mainstream: movies > video games.

Good thing is the UK versions statue looks cooler. Bad thing is the battle edition is only in the us. Guess I'll just have to settle with Collector's Edition

I'm with you.It wasn't a big deal with MK because they were all characters i wasn't a fan of.But with this.Who know? Red Hood,Zod,Beast Boy(please?),Raven,Damian As robin.I for one can't wait....Until 6-8 months after this games release.

@SmashBrawler: I almost forgot that Dark Knight Returns part 2 comes out, which will doubtlessly feature the fight between Batman and Superman, so now we're two for three.

DC is always desperately fighting back the image that Superman is unrelatable and they wonder 'why?'

Well they need to slide batman over on that pedestal of his and make room for Superman too, because otherwise they'll have no one to blame but themselves.

edit:Ah I got too worked up I'm making too big a deal out of this one, I can still beat the stuffing out of Batman in the versus mode.

I can't express how much I want to play this game, and how much I want it to NOT SUCK!

Pretty much how I felt. Superman should be the star of this game.

I can't wait to play as my favorite heroes!

Since Netherrealm studio's last game Mortal Kombat had the largest amount of content ever in a fighting game, and was the first fighting game to actually have a well made story mode, I'm not too worried about how this game will turn out.

Posted by RoTheKid

Nice! Can't wait until this comes out! :)

Posted by Bestostero

I really hope more interesting characters are announced...the list so far is pretty predictable/generic...not exciting.

Posted by redhoodnet

FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just pre-ordered from Amazon!

I'm so getting the dam battle edition.

that is near impossible. I can hardly wait for april to come along, let alone wait for the game of the year edition.

Posted by sethysquare

@SuperJedi17: you know, you can always get them in DLC. ahah

Posted by djbilog

Now I'm even more excited! Pre-Ordering from Gamestop I'm getting the Red Son mission and costume pack for Superman, Wonder Woman, and Solomon Grundy. Still don't know if I should get collector's or battle edition! AHHHH!! I frustrate myself.

@RedQueen said:

IGN's article which addresses this shows a very different looking statue/items...multiple collector's editions?

Still, that fight stick looks awesome. Which one do I buy? Can I justify both? ....Probably.

Oh, and Doomsday...XD

Awesome. Looks like we now not only have conformation of Doomsday, but of Arkham Asylum Batman as an alt skin.

Posted by lennylharris

Umm. yeah Nintendo World Report CONFIRMS there WILL be a Battle Edition for Wii U. might wanna stop over there and check that out. We Nintendo fans don't get to jump in the "edition" fray very often, so I thought it was important to let that be known in case anyone else wants to get Battle Edition for Wii U also. ^_^

Posted by Press Oblivion

It's like candy!

Posted by DEGRAAF

I would love the PS3 Battle edition but that is alot of money. The joystick pad would be pretty badass to play with though

Posted by G_Money_Christmas

The European version statue is much cooler than the American one: / I can't justify buying this... maybe rent it. I don't play video games enough to spend that kind of money on it

And you can't? I don't have much $ sadly.

Posted by tomlikesfries

God, that collector's edition looks awesome. I want it badly.

@LaserLambert: Superman: Unbound is coming out this year. I agree I dont understand why people like Batman so much. I like him but people get really annoying with him and Batman jokes stopped being funny two years ago. If Batman turned bad there would be no story because he would be taken out so quick.Techniccally didnt Batman lose to Superman in TDKR I didnt read the whole story. I even stopped buying Batman stuff because I got annoyed and tired of him. To me Superman is a much more interesting character at least right now.

Posted by Black_Claw

Agreed. Batman has really been overused recently. But then again, something's telling me that should Man Of Steel be a financial success and DC decides to have Superman be their new golden boy, then everybody will complain that Superman is being overused.

I guess that's preference, but the Americans get the Battle Edition which Europeans don't have unless you get it online from what I understand.

Either way, I'm sure the battle joystick can be bought separately within a month if that long on amazon or ebay. Not worth 150 bucks imo. Even the MK Tournament Edition you got more for your money with the book end statue, better joystick than that(looks like light plastic) and DLC, artbook etc.

I'm going for the Collector's Edition here, more bang for less buck!

Awesome! So happy DD is in. Aquaman is officially in too, look at my thread in off topic.
