Injustice: Gods Among Us DLC will add Scorpion

Fighting game fans will recognize a familiar undead face thrown into Injustice: Gods Among Us’ superpowered roster. Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has announced that Mortal Kombat series’ regular Scorpion will be the next character added to the game.

The download will be available for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game and will cost 400 Microsoft Points, or $4.99. A release date has yet to be announced, as have any plans to bring the DLC to the Wii U version.

The undead ninja will also be sporting a new redesign from DC artist and publisher Jim Lee. The redesign, as well as Scorpion’s updated move set, can be seen in the trailer, above.

NetherRealm Studios is also responsible for the successful 2011 reboot of Scorpion’s home series, Mortal Kombat. He will be the first character in Injustice to come from outside of the DC Universe.

    I've got scorpion already and he plays exactly the same as the vita version of mortal kombat....and his ending isn't too bad either

    There is one DLC character I really want: The Mask. The best superhero ever. :D

    Is it just me or does Scorpion's Injustice-suit looks like a girl's dress??

    cooooool... I guess the leaked list is accurate. Next one should be Zod.
  • slimjim441 - June 4, 2013 9:15 a.m.

    On the contrary, the list leaked Scorp as 4th with Zod as 3rd. Also, the last 3 seconds of the video shows a quick shot of Manhunter; a bit obvious of who's next, don't you think?
  • BipolarTroll - June 4, 2013 10:04 a.m.

    yeah, but they might just be switching things up to "pseudo-counter" the leak, or switched the ZOD DLC release date to correspond with Man of Steel. Just my theories. Zod would be an interesting character.
  • slimjim441 - June 4, 2013 11:36 p.m.

    Zod wouldn't be horrible, but he would never be my first pick. Not even for Superman characters; hell, I could think of almost have a dozen Supes guys that I'd like before Zod. However, since it's heavily rumored that a second season pass will be released (Manhunter [now most likely Zod], Powergirl, Red Hood, and Sub-Zero), they may have just switched Manhunter with Zod considering popularity has pretty rapidly decreased I'm guessing earlier than expected. It could be a quick change to keep people playing with characters they want instead of Batgirl and some guy who everyone thinks is Vandal Savage in some weird tuby armor. We'll have to wait and see, although I'm still trading it in. If Lobo can't keep me entertained, no one can, save maybe Captain Planet.
  • BipolarTroll - June 4, 2013 11:45 p.m.

    CAPTAIN PLANET! ROLL THE THEME SONG. That would've been great. And I do have to agree, there are definitely better options than Batgirl or Zod. Hell, Booster Gold, Krypto, or even Alfred would've been better.

    Looks very cool but COME ON!
  • kursedkey - June 3, 2013 7:54 p.m.

    I should be so mad that they included him before Darkside. But this is just too awesome to hate. Lets just hope this doesn't turn into MK VS DC.
