Catch a superhero smackdown in this new trailer for Injustice: Gods Among Us

Watch a host of DC superheroes beat the snot out of each other in this trailer for Injustice: Gods Among Us.

A couple months ago, we confirmed in our hands-on preview that NetherRealm’s upcoming game Injustice: Gods Among Us is going to be pretty sweet. Despite the fact that NetherRealm made their name with the Mortal Kombat series and we expected Injustice to be similar, we were pleasantly surprised with the new style and feel developers brought to the game. In this trailer, the creative teams from NetherRealm and DC Comics talk about how they made it all possible.

Injustice is built on a powerful new engine — Unreal Engine 3 — which allowed developers to add more depth and realism to the characters and environments in the game. Everything down to the lighting and textures has been given an obsessive level of detail. The game also features a new and improved fighting system that’s a complete departure from the style in Mortal Kombat. Details on the story are being kept under wraps, but stay tuned for more trailers — Injustice hits stores sometime in April of 2013.
