There seem to be mixed reactions to Injustice: Gods Among Us, and while the roster has a few more Batman characters on it than I would have probably liked, it's still undeniably neat to see a game like this exist. We'll have to watch for any new additions to the cast leading up to the title's April 16, 2013 (April 19 in Europe) release on PlayStation 3, Wii U, and Xbox 360.
In the US and Canada, EB Games and GameStop will be offering a Battle Edition of the fighting game. Retailing for $149.99, this package includes three exclusive character skins based on The New 52 as well as a fight stick. There's also still the Collector's Edition ($99.99) for North America which has the skins, an Injustice comic book, a statue, and a downloadable copy of the movie Justice League: Doom.
If you were hoping to grab a Wii U copy of the game, know that these limited-edition versions are only for the PS3 and Xbox 360 releases. Something is better than nothing at all, I suppose.
