NetherRealm Studios has revealed that it's working on a mobile version of its upcoming superhero console brawler Injustice: Gods Among Us
Though the Chicago-based developer is remaining pretty tight-lipped about the specifics of this iOS and Android spin-off, we do know that the game will differ in some respects from the console version.
Thanks to the folks over at Digital Spy
, who caught a glimpse of the title at GDC, we also know that you will be able to unlock achievements and character skins in the Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii U version of Injustice: Gods Among Us
by playing the mobile edition of it.
Given that NetherRealm is the dev behind previous DC Universe title Batman Arkham City Lockdown
, we wouldn't be surprised if the mobile incarnation of Injustice: Gods Among Us
contains similarly Infinity Blade
In fact, we reckon a gesture-based interpretation of the game would be preferable to fumbling around with a bunch of virtual buttons.
As you may or may not know, by the way, the home console version of Injustice: Gods Among Us
will run on a heavily modified version of Unreal Engine 3.
And as you may or may not know, NetherRealm has been on the lookout out for a senior designer with "extensive game development experience" to create "multiple Unreal-based iOS projects". Hmmm, indeed.
Anyway, the console version of Injustice: Gods Among Us
is scheduled for release on April 19th. There is currently no release date for the iOS and Android edition, though.Console version pictured above.
