In advance of next week's E3 video game convention, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced today that Injustice: Gods Among Us, a fighting game starring DC Comics superheroes and villains, will be released in 2013 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and the upcoming Wii U.

Developed by NetherRealm Studios, the team behind last year's excellent Mortal Kombat reboot, the game will pit the likes of Batman, Superman, The Flash, and Wonder Woman against each other in larger-than-life fights. NetherRealm (while still under the Midway Games banner) previously developed Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe a few years back, so the studio is already very familiar with many of the characters.

GameSpot has the first trailer, which shows battles that start on the ground -- and end up smashing through multiple buildings or even into outer space at times. The site's initial coverage details the difference between Gadget and Power-based fighters, with each category determining how they can interact with the environments. And the game aims to feature a large array of fighters, with more combatants planned than in the last Mortal Kombat, which included more than two dozen available brawlers.


Based on the initial footage, Injustice: Gods Among Us looks very similar in motion to the last Mortal Kombat, which may prove a very good thing. We'll no doubt hear more about the game next week at E3.
