Wii U owners get the shaft.
Warner Bros has sent out word that it’s offering a piece of the pie early. A demo for Injustice: Gods Among Us will be landing on PSN on April 2nd, and on Xbox Live a day later. Sorry Wii U owners, you’re out of luck here. There was no mention of the contents of the demo, but we expect them to throw in one or two characters and stages.
For the unacquainted, Injust: Gods Among Us is a 2D fighting game which pits some of the most prominent figures in the DC Universe against each other. It’s being developed by the same minds that’s responsible for the Mortal Kombat franchise. It bears a lot in common with 2011’s Mortal Kombat reboot, which is evident in the developer’s signature bloody and brutal combat. One neat addition is interactive environments. Successfully landing a heavy blow near the edges of the stage will launch the opponent into another part of the level. Not to mention, they are quite spectacular to watch.
Injustice: Gods Among us will be available for the PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U on April 16th in North America, and on the 19th in Europe. A iOS version was also announced, but details are scarce at the moment.
