Injustice: Gods Among Us release date confirmed as April 16, Battle Edition announced - includes fight stick

Posted by Steven 'Dreamking23' Chavez • January 15, 2013 at 8:54 a.m. PST
Joystiq has posted information regarding the release date and the just announced Battle Edition for Injustice: Gods Among Us. The DC brawler will be released in North America on April 16 and April 19 in Europe.

The Battle Edition differs from the previously announced Collector's Edition (which can also be seen below), as it comes with full fledged arcade stick. This particular controller has a "adjustable illumination" function, so in case you don't want your fight stick to light up, you can change it around.

This edition will also come equipped with the 3 DLC costumes that are included in the Collector's Edition. If you're looking to pick this Battle Edition up, it will be available at GameStop and EB Games stores for $149.99 USD.

Wow I might get this just for the stick.

so the stick is worth about $90? It's probably the size of a SE stick. And those buttons, what is that, clear seimitsu?

NO THANKS

BOOYAH for there being DLC costumes! Here's hoping for more.

Fight stick might be cool, it'd be a good opportunity as I've never owned one.

I like the New 52 skins in these packs. I hope they add New 52 looks for the rest of the cast eventually; at least Green Lantern, Flash, and Catwoman (and Aquaman if he makes it)

Yeah I'm buying it!

Nice stick but that bat top needs to go. Bat top = DansGame

Love me some bat top... wonder if it's a circle gate. Might just have to give it a shot if so...

@7 Still better than Ultimate Marvel and xTekken's netcode.

#19
Hypermarth said on January 15, 2013 at 10 a.m.

SFxT actually has a pretty good netcode...

Not going to even try to defend Marvel though, that's easily one of the worst fighting game netcodes.

#20
HooliganComboFTW said on January 15, 2013 at 10:02 a.m.

So the Stick Pack does not include the stuff from collector?

#21
AngrySteve said on January 15, 2013 at 10:04 a.m.

eeyeahhh I'm getting this.

#22
rcorporon said on January 15, 2013 at 10:04 a.m.

So this is going to be a six button fighter as opposed to the weird MK button layout?

Interest rising...

#23
TorTorVega said on January 15, 2013 at 10:10 a.m.

@23 Back to block as well.

Looks good. Already have a few sticks so I'm not really interested in another one, but cool to see an edition of the game that comes with a stick.

Bahaha @ people hating already. The netcode? Really? Have we even seen anything of the netcode yet?

h1tm0nl33 said on January 15, 2013 at 10:13 a.m.

@20 KoF12 would like a word with you.

#25
cnorw00d said on January 15, 2013 at 10:13 a.m.

i thought this was going to be a 4 button fighter

#26
SJ said on January 15, 2013 at 10:26 a.m.

26@ It is. Light, Medium, Heavy, and a Unique Button for every character.

Doomsday on the stck? Thats pretty interesting.

At first I wasn't going to touch this game but i should give it a try i guess.

#27
h1tm0nl33 said on January 15, 2013 at 10:27 a.m.

DOOMSDAY!!!!!!!!!!!! DOOMSDAY!!!!!!!!!!!! DOOMSDAY!!!!!!!!!!!! DOOMSDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!

#28
Deyrax said on January 15, 2013 at 10:29 a.m.

Yess !!! Doomsday !!! In a fighting game !! What more could you ask for ? Damn, I hope he is playable.

#29
h1tm0nl33 said on January 15, 2013 at 10:31 a.m.

Now all we need is the Main Man. >:)

#30
Astro_Notch said on January 15, 2013 at 10:32 a.m.

lol @ random xTekken hate. The netcode for xTekken is pretty good, better than AE at least.

This looks like a good deal though, $149.99 for the stick AND the game AND DLC costumes? If I were looking to buy a stick I'd definitely pick this up. A regular TE stick will cost you the same price, and all you get is the stick.

Can we get a story on Injustice without someone tryna burn it for something please. It's just talking about the special edition. No need for fire. Let us who actually care about it express our excitement. If you don't like it, ignore it and leave it alone.

#34
s1lentway said on January 15, 2013 at 10:57 a.m.

i really hope the specs for this stick come out. if it seems like a legit stick i'll definitely buy this.

#35
DivinePhoenix69 said on January 15, 2013 at 11:02 a.m.

Im not really a DC fan, but the stick looks pretty sweet, though id change it to a balltop asap should i ever get it. Also not hating on SfxT or anything, but that game's netcode IS terrible. Not Umvc3 or KOF terrible but pretty f-ing bad overall.

@cnorwood lol calling someone a weeaboo because they prefer a balltop over a battop? That makes no sense at all...

#36
blazebwoy said on January 15, 2013 at 11:05 a.m.

nice to see Doomsday but the roster still needs variety

#37
Elements012894 said on January 15, 2013 at 11:10 a.m.

@32 The netcode is quite good. If your characters are teleporting around its because the internet of you or the other player is terrible. Even playing on my Vita version with a friend online is perfectly fine.

SFXT nencode is garbage

#41
WLA_Static said on January 15, 2013 at 11:28 a.m.

Finally a 360 stick without those random colored buttons

#42
Chrisuchiwa said on January 15, 2013 at 11:31 a.m.

Plz tell me I can play this game as a 2D game!!! I am never been that good in 3d games except Budokai series. But I am pretty good in 2D games. The fact I can hold back to block, is a huge change for me.
I really want to give a shot to this game. The last game I bought was in April 2012. Maybe I will wait and see.
And that stick is sick! Unfortunately I bought a new stick on black friday.

#43
Mr_Bogard said on January 15, 2013 at 11:48 a.m.

This looks REALLY REALLY good but I'm waiting for Aquaman to be a playable character before I decide to pre-order anything.

#44
Oroku_Saki said on January 15, 2013 at 12:09 p.m.

Going to import this, and add the stick to my collection.

Holy crap, $150 for all that. I really fricking need this. Especially because of the bat top. Ball top sucks in my opinion.

#47
FullAnime said on January 15, 2013 at 1:32 p.m.

I'll get this edition for sure. I need another stick.

paulow3b said on January 15, 2013 at 5:41 p.m.

A HUGE CURIOSITY, EVENT GUYS!
Look at the bottom of the editions' pics. It says that the movie is going to be redeem on OCTOBER 31th! And more strange yet, that DLC Skins will be available for redeeming on 04/30/2-0-1-4!!!!

Is it true? IS NR going to extend the release of downloadable contents for so long??

#49
h1tm0nl33 said on January 15, 2013 at 10:23 p.m.

@50 not exactly, what its saying is that if you get either of those special editions you have a year to redeem it before it's void.

#50
tidestick said on January 15, 2013 at 10:39 p.m.

totally agree with 48

#51
tidestick said on January 15, 2013 at 10:42 p.m.

oh yeah and whats up with all these special or collectors edition crap. oh yeah forgot money! just make 1! is that to hard?

#52
ClaytonSamus said on January 15, 2013 at 11:28 p.m.

I'm just curious if it's circle or square gate, really. Bat top in an American arcade usually meant circle gate (at least in random SoCal arcades), but you never know.
