A pair of villainous new fighters have been leaked for Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment’s upcoming fighting game Injustice: Gods Among Us. One is the techie genius Lex Luthor, made famous by the Superman comics, and the other is the burly strongman Bane, of Batman fame. These reveals come via Best Buy’s @GAMER magazine.
The magazine also contains a few game-play details about the characters. Lex Luthor will utilize gadgets and sophisticated technology (including a missile launcher and a shield) in his fighting style, and Bane will be capable of pumping venom into his body to power himself up, in addition to powerful “wrestling inspired” grapples and holds.
NetherRealm has yet to properly reveal these characters so there are no pretty official assets – such as a game-play trailer or a batch of screenshots – to gaze upon just yet. With this leak out, though, I’m sure we’ll see something before long. Injustice: Gods Among Us is expected to be released in April for the PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U. A couple of blurry magazine screens of the characters can be viewed below.
