Injustice: Gods Among Us Collectors Editions and Release Dates

When it comes to beloved characters there are few as universally (and alternate universally) loved as superheroes, so the latest game from NetherRealm Studios (the famous folk behind the Mortal Kombat franchise) is sure to excite comic collectors and civilians alike. Injustice: Gods Among Us is a new fighting game that features a huge cast of DC Comics icons, including Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Joker, Harley Quinn, The Flash, Green Arrow, Cyborg, Nightwing, Solomon Grundy, and many others.

As if the thought of Superman and Batman duking it out wasn’t exciting enough, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment have now announced not one, but three varieties of collectors editions for the game, piled high with collectibles goodies for fans. Last year we got a sneak peak at the Collector’s Edition, but now we have more details of the final pack style and a Fighting Stick bundle to boot. But true fans be warned – the North America and European editions feature two different styles of beautiful-looking statues; once you see them both you might have difficulty buying just one of them.

Round 1 brings us the Collector’s Edition for Europe (and presumably other PAL regions), priced at £74.99 (or €99.99)

  • Exclusive 25cm Collectible statue featuring Batman (pwning) Wonder Woman
  • Unique Steelbook Packaging
  • An Injustice Comic Book
  • Three exclusive skins for Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman from THE NEW 52

Alas a quick comparison with the original collector’s edition shots reveals that the original promise of 2 comics has been revised, but as a bonus so too has the style of the Steelbook and packaging – ain’t it nice n’ shiny?

  • Three exclusive skins for Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman from THE NEW 52

But wait, there’s still more! The Injustice: Gods Among Us #1 digital comic book from DC Entertainment has also now been released for your viewing pleasure. This does appear to be the same comic bundled in both the European and US Collector’s edition, but if you just can’t wait it is available for download for around $0.99 at ReadDCEntertainment.com, through the DC Comics app, or on the iBookstore, Kindle Store or Nook Store. The comic acts as a prequel to the game, telling the tale of the various events that leading up to this new world order in which heroes face one another in an epic fight.

No matter which hero you support, Injustice: Gods Among Us will be available for one and all as the super (and sinister) men and women of DC will be fighting for justice on the Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and Windows PC. Keep an eye on the skies, because this game will be swooping in to save North American on April 16th, 2013, before flying off to rescue European with a release date of April 19th.
