NetherRealm Studio's upcoming fighting game set in the DC Comics universe, Injustice: Gods Among Us, will be getting its own comic spin-off, studio co-founder Ed Boon said today at the EB Expo in Sydney.
Speaking at a demo of the game, Boon said that the DC universe has been represented in almost every form of media, from movies to television to the animated series and video games, and NetherRealms would like its interpretation of the DC universe to carve its own niche.
"We're working on an InJustice comic book to carry the story and tell the events that came before the game," Boon said. "With a game like Mortal Kombat, so many things spawned from there, like the movie. Obviously the extreme version is it would spawn a lot more things, but I know for sure we are making an InJustice comic."
Boon said that he hopes the InJustice interpretation of the DC universe will be considered another universe that players can embrace, much like the way players embraced the world presented in Batman: Akham City.
InJustice: Gods Among Us will release in April 2013 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii U.
