On the PAX Prime showfloor, NetherRealm Studios showed off a bit of Injustice: Gods Among Us gameplay footage involving Cyborg and Nightwing. Their battle shows off a few key gameplay mechanics from DC Comics fighting game.
Each character in Injustice has something dubbed a "gimmick button." This is essentially an ability unique to their character. Nightwing can combine his escrima sticks into a single staff, thereby giving him a different set of attacks. Cyborg can go into recharge mode and gain back some of the health he's lost through the fight.
Injustice also features a number of "super" moves. Cyborg whips out an enormous beam cannon to vaporize his opponent. Nightwing, meanwhile, is able to summon his motorcycle and run over the other combatant.
The key appeal of this game is becoming a super hero or villain. Part of that experience is being able to do all the super shit that they can do. This footage suggests that NetherRealm is on the right track so far.
