Warner Bros and NetherRealm Studios' upcoming fighting game for home consoles features a plethora of DC Universe's greatest heroes and villains all wrapped up in a nice 1-on-1 fighting game. Ed Boon, one half of the creators of Mortal Kombat talks about working on Injustice as well as the success of the game determining if it turns into a long-term franchise.
The interview comes courtesy of GameTrailers where Boon talks openly and positively about Injustice: Gods Among Us. He covers the game's environment designs, character types and potentially building a brand out of the series. Saying...
“We're really kind of defining this new game. We're hoping that this is going to be a franchise and have a series of games.
Check out what else he had to say in the complete interview below.
The game actually looks to be coming along really nicely. While it doesn't really seem to do much in terms of advancing the evolution of the fighting game genre, nor does it incorporate anything new when it comes to the interaction of executing or countering moves, it does at least do the tried and traditional methods of fighting games right. Based on the video footage, anyway.
The idea of turning Injustice into a franchise is an interesting concept because it's not as if fighting games are the new hotness or making Call of Duty sized monies the way open-world games are such as Rocksteady's Batman games or Bethesda's open-world RPGs. I'm at least glad that Warner Bros is willing to invest in something different from the norm and they at least understand that the gaming industry is comprised of more than just shooters.
You can look for Injustice: Gods Among Us to launch sometime next year for Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii U.
