Warner Bros. has shown great support for the Wii U so far, bringing Batman Arkham City, Scribblenauts Unlimited, and Game Party Champions to the new console. They’re also working on Injustice: Gods Among Us, a fighting game which includes popular DC Comics characters. The game will include famous characters such as Batman, Joker, Superman, Flash, Wonder Woman, and others. Injustice: Gods Among Us is developed by Mortal Kombat developers NetherRealms, and is expected to be released early next year. Warner Bros. has revealed the official Wii U box art of the game, which you can find below.

    Joker scares me

  • maxlazy10

    Not bad. Not bad. The blue really accents it nicely.

  • Gamechemist8

    Batman FTW

    • Allah

          • imaher

            I hate shia’s

          • NightºƒCore

            Shias. I hate thems too. Plz do change ur name man. Oh, and this site has a policy for no shias.

          • Ben2


        • Crapcake

          i totally agree imaher

        • NavyBlueYoshi

          You want him to be thrown into a band?

        • MadPopGaming

          I’m a non-muslim (non-religious actually), but I agree with imaher. No need for this kind of stuff on a video game website.

          Trolling people’s favorite video game console is one thing but religion should be respected and never mocked.

        • Ben2

          Who are you, Barack Obama? (or as I like to call him, “Barack O blabla” and “Barack O bummer”)

        • Ben2

          Maybe HE knows something about the Benghazi shooting!!!!

  • Stephan

    Is it wrong that I care for Cyborg the most in this game?

    • Shane

      No. I didn’t even know Cyborg was a regular hero until now. haha. I only thought he was on the Teen Titans.

    • MadPopGaming

      He looks awesome in this game, though I’m normally not a particularly big fan.

  • Mchelski

    that’s a must have game for me

  • BananaPwnz

    Ive been looking forward to this game! Cant wait to get it

  • Troll patrol.

    We need a wrestling game where you can swing the gamepad around like a steel chair . It’s a no brainer …

    • muhammed

      what tha heck??????
      thats the kind of stuff that made 3rd party wii games so bad

    • Ben2

      It’s called WWE’13.

  • Noteak

    That is one creepy joker.

    • Madmagican

      yeah, they’re starting to bring back the original joker; complete with extreme dark creepiness. Definitely gonna try to pick this up

  • rjm42047

    Arkham City. Let’s go.

    • SideScreamer

      Batman: Arkham Sequel > This.

  • Asiancake

    It developed by mortal kombat dev it going be pretty good then so boss

  • Skozo

    Is that Dr. Doom falling down? It looks like him.

    • Darkmanext

      Green Arrow

      Dr. Doom is MArvel

      • Darkmanext

        But wouldn’t it be cool if it was him. Who for a Marvel vs DC game

        • Madmagican

          *sigh* one day… I’ll be able to fight the greats against each other… one day

          • Ben2

            Dream on.

    • Nintenlord

      No is green arrow

    • SideScreamer

      Doctor Doom is from Marvel.

      Are you fucking kidding me?

    • Diogozaca

      It’s the green archer!

    • Marq

      It’s either Darkseid or Green Arrow.

    • JumpMan

      i think it’s Green Arrow…

    • Lew3107

      No, it’s the Green Arrow. Dr. Doom is Marvel, this game is DC.

      • Ben2

        Like this comment if you think it is Dr. Doom. I think it is Dr. doom.

  • samuDC

    This game looks ok…
    Can’t wait for scribblenauts unlimited though!

    • Ben2


  • Nintendo Power (Chuck Norris)

    Joker looks scary

  • Lusunup

    Oh i see green arrow!!! he so sick just look at him!

    • JumpMan

      i know, even his name is sick! lola. get it? GREEN Arrow? like, green. like, sick green. like— oh, never mind…

  • DerpinglyLove

    Best looking Wii U box art so far imo.

  • DarkNite

    this looks badass!! ima get it.!! 38 days left for launch!! going to get the basic with zombiu, assassins creed 3, FIFA 13, and black ops 2!!! oh and btw, GAMESTOP WILL NOT HAVE A MIDNIGHT LAUNCH!! The will open the stores on sunday morning early though


    I’m really happy Nintendo is finally remembering us lost core fans. Thats why I left Nintendo before cause they had no shooters or action games. I’m glad thats changing!!!

    • SideScreamer

      How is his comment getting thumbs downed? It’s true.
      Most of us left because of the lacking 3rd party support, terrible online support, and lack of shooters.

      • True Fans Unite!!!

        Then there’s us true fans who stuck with Nintendo through thick and thin, supporting them all the way, and enjoying their kick-butt first party games.

        • SideScreamer

          I did this also. But I also moved on to Xbox to fill in the open holes the Wii left.
          I’m not saying I prefer Microsoft to Nintendo at all. Nintendo all the way for me. But I really hope the Wii U will live up to my, and everyone else’s expectations.

    • Leeroy

      Shooters suck.

      • SideScreamer

        Your opinion, bro.

  • ajerezt

    green arrow looks like dr doom… XD

  • Crapcake

    what the heck is up with jokers teeth?


    ._. woow so stupid they put “From The Creators Of Mortal Kombat” That’s so… stupid why!!? Because no one is interested in that

    • makaresh

      yea, like no body watches bad films because of “from the producer/director etc…” i wouldn´t buy this game if i didn´t know that netherrealm realized it and it uses the same engine as mortal kombat. but you´re right: i don´t need this sentence on a box.

    • Adam Fox

      What’s so stupid about it? It lets folks know what to expect as far as control and style….sure it may not be graphic violence like Mortal Kombat, but its gonna be alot better than that MK vs DC crap! (not only that, we know what we are getting into with this game….cause on MK vs DC they announced it was going to have Fatalities but they didn’t say they were gonna be less violent than the first Mortal Kombat)

    • Marq

      Because a lot of people enjoyed the lastest MK, and that sentence will sell a lot of copies.

  • Dan

    Looks beautiful!

  • Jc


  • VongolaMafia

    Very smexy nintendo very smexy

  • fnc73 fc: 4167-5780-8204

    Can’t wait for this game. I’m hoping for an in-dept story mode. Regardless, what I’ve seen so far looks great. In addition to what was shown at E3, the gamepad Integration should hopefully improve the game. Not to mention the obvious better graphics.

  • srpg2ishere

    Thumbs up if you are going to buy this at release!
    Thumbs down if your buying this later!
    Thumbs up if you’ll use the pro controller!
    Thumbs down I don’t care! 😀

  • srpg2ishere

    I love the fact that they made the wii u cases BLUE that’s so freakin epic!

  • J


    • Iceman404

      First to realize comments are moderated and you’re not likely to actually get first, and the idea of first comments are absolutely retarded?

  • TheUNation

    Love that Jok– I mean cover art.

  • patricks wee woo

    interesting batman and super man…



  • Andrew Sheehan

    This has some potential. I just hope they don’t simply put DC characters on the Mortal Kombat Engine.

    • Allah

      Why whats wrong with mk engine?

      • Andrew Sheehan

        Don’t get me wrong, Mortal Kombat engine is nice. I just don’t think it fits with the DC Universe. I don’t want to be playing as a DC character and say to myself, “This feels like a MK character, rather than Batman” (for example)

      • Crapcake

        hey change your name or else… you are not god so change your name to something cooler like trash boat (regular show reference)

        • The Urge

          TRASH BOAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Gr8 Monst3r

    Epic cover is epic!

  • Watch_Dog

    Is that Green Arrow on the front cover. He looks like Dr. Doom, from MARVEL Comics, in the picture. The Joker has a mighty presence on the cover.

    • Andrew Sheehan

      No, that is Green Lantern

      • Andrew Sheehan

        Oh, I didn’t notice the dead guy on the ground. I think that is the Kiebler Elf


    First off! This looks AWESOME

    May the odds be eva in your favor…

  • AwayToHit

    Pretty sweet if you ask me 🙂

  • Kahhhhyle

    Hey this is a wii u game and a comic book game… Wii u at comic con… COME ON NINTENDO.

    • inseriously

      I guess u can say this is comical

    • Nko Sekirei

    • lan

      • Kahhhhyle

        • Nintenlord


          • Kahhhhyle

            Looks like I know what line I’m waiting on all of tomorrow morning…

    • God

      This game looks pretty cool unless its like a marvel vs capcom type of game then it will be dumb but seriously wii u daily give us some better news.

    • Nintenlord

      Is not nintendo to decide where 3rd party will show there games but wb may have in there area

      • Kahhhhyle

        Honestly I don’t care about this game I just want the console to be there

  • Nintyfan

    There better be a good story. Just because having good guys fighting good guys seem completely pointless.


  • ssb4FC 3007 8585 6950

    Seems interesting. Not sold on any fighter. On wii u until smash 4 comes or when they get rated

  • Wii U Fan

    This looks awesome. 😀

  • CubeClubKiddy

    the more games, the merrier! i hope this is the next gen’s SNES!!!

  • SteampunkJedi

    I’m not a huge fan of DC superheroes, but if there’s great gameplay I’ll probably get this.

  • Nko Sekirei

    looks awsome can t wait to play it lets hope there doomsday,darkseid,brainiac and lex luthor in there

  • AO1JMM

    Looks awesome

  • Enraged Penguin

    Sooooo Mortal Kombat vs. Dc Universe without mortal kombat characters? Looks interesting though, have to wait until there is more info before i come to a yay or nay conclusion.

    • makaresh

      no, it´s mortal kombat with dc characters… nothing less. watch a vid on youtube. it looks great.

  • Rad


  • Xblade13

    Looks great. I’ll give it a whirl.
    Is it a button-masher? Cuz if it is I’ll use the Pro Controller. Don’t want to take the chance of SOMEHOW messing the gamepad up. Its too beautiful. 😀

  • Your Mom

    Joker is creepy looking and we all know who would win between Batman and Superman right.

    • JumpMan

      exactly. your mom would. jklawlzntrly.

      • Ben2

        Guys, my mom died 4 years ago in a car accident. A peice of the windsheild was blasted into her arm, she died of blood loss. I remember her last words, she said ” No matter what… I love you… and God will always love you.”

  • joesatmoes

    i just wish Marvel;Battle for Earth was as good as this- i like Marvel more, but that game looks lame with the cartoonish characters and the screen being all sideways.

  • Nintendork28

    That box art right there is mighty purty.

  • GameChanger

    I wonder if the Wii U version will also have the special edition game with the statue like the PS3 and 360.

  • Behind you

    That looks AWESOME I’m getting that day 1



  • TheLibyan

    I’m REALLY digging the Wii U’s box art. That color blue is just killer.

  • Master Awesomeness


  • Wii U at it’s best

    Looks awesome to me thumbs up

  • AKA-Link77

    WTF is “PEGI”? is that like a rating before the real rating? Cuz it sounds dumb. LOL it reminds me of Peg from Married with Children. XD

    • makaresh

      pegi is an european rating system. and it is the “real” rating.

    • Neonridr

      in North Americaa we use ESRB for our software ratings, in Europe they use PEGI which is basically the same thing.

  • ceramicsaturn

    Please let Mark Hamill voice the Joker, PLEASE PLEASE!

  • Doopliss

    Why there’s just one comment?

  • Dan

    Hey wii u daily why did u guys delete my first comment??

  • Master Awesomeness


  • Collected

    So the box art cover that shows Joker and Green Lantern, even though they haven’t had official character trailers. That’s still pretty good to know

  • makaresh

    i wonder if they put out a new fighting stick for wii u?

    • JumpMan

      what does that mean? add another analog stick?

  • Wii U Gamer#19

    Whoo whoo whoo” Man this is gonna be one epic game! 😉

  • Lazyboy88

    It’s easy to see that Dr. Doom is laying down on the ground,
    And it’s Green Lantern on the pic xD

    • Lazyboy88

      Correction it is green arrow laying down on the ground he’s got a beard.
      My bad, it was not as easy to see as i thought..

  • Ledreppe

    Nah, pass on this.


    Good job WB. NOW PLEASE make this franchise into a Sandbox game with the Justice League. WII U exclusive to Boot.

  • Diogozaca

    Joker have 140 teeth.

  • Joeyperez

    i think this game is great! i have seen trailers for a while now …. and yes it is just mortal combat with the substitution of dc characters with amazing detail and graphics.. but hey I’m a sucker for good fighting games and every single time i play mortal kombat i enjoy it! i even enjoyed mk vz. dc.. love it actually so this will be great and looks great!

  • Shane

    Cool. Guess I don’t have to worry about getting the worse version on PS3. I’m really hoping they move alot of the new games over from PS3/XBox 360 over to Wii U so I can have simply the best system playing them… No offence torwards those companies they did well considering the fact that Sony was 10 years late to the game party, and Microsoft was 15 years late, but leave gaming to the pros who ONLY work as game masters.

    This game looks great, and no it doesn’t use the exact same game as Mortal Kombat. It uses the same game engine, but it’s built from the ground up with ONLY DC characters and environments. I also agree that they don’t, and kinda shouldn’t put “from the same creators of Mortal Kombat”, because hardcore DC fans won’t like that I’m sure. Hardcore DC fans would ALREADY know who making the game, and so would even MK fans.



  • Acid

    the joker.. the only villain on the cover like a boss!

  • TheFlash7

    I am a hardcore DC fan and I am loving the artwork and the trailers. As for the debate between MK and Injustice I have never had the chance to play MK and never wanted to so it does not matter to me if the game is based on the MK engine in any way.

    As for the debate as to who is all on the cover, Green Lantern is on the top with Cyborg, Wonder Woman, Joker and The Flash. The character at the bottom of the artwork is not Dr. Doom, It is Green Arrow and you can tell it by the bow that is laying on the ground just out of the reach of the hand on the ground.

    From all I have seen, this is going to be one kick-a** game. I can not wait until April to get it.
