Injustice: Gods Among Us Batgirl gameplay trailer released

Posted by Nicholas 'MajinTenshinhan' Taylor • May 9, 2013 at 8:05 a.m. PDT
Two days ago, players got a taste for Lobo in Injustice: Gods Among Us. But if you're still eager for even more new characters, you're in luck. NetherRealm have just given us a look at what Batgirl will have in store for all of you once she gets released.

While her inclusion was leaked a while back, this is the first actual gameplay we get to see of her, and as promised by NetherRealm themselves, she certainly doesn't look like a Batman clone. Check the video out right below.

Thanks to users sick.case and CBX for sending in this news tip.

Underwhelmed, but not dreading her inclusion, at least. No buy, will download compatibility patch.

Killing Joke-Joker alt is a Day 1 buy, though.

What a lame character. Dat Joker costume though !

MisterJho said on May 9, 2013 at 8:10 a.m.

Okay, admittedly; that super was pretty cool

Definetly not a Bats clone, looking forward 2 gief her a try when she lands, that super was pew pew :P

Drifter said on May 9, 2013 at 8:13 a.m.

I love her voice and super. Awesome. What's her trait? It looks like a small powerup.

#8
HyperGadoken said on May 9, 2013 at 8:14 a.m.

At least she's more Batman-ish than Batman. Makes Batman's move list lame in comparison

#9
Auron said on May 9, 2013 at 8:14 a.m.

I like it :3

but really ?? that joker alt >_> ( i know its from the killing joke but srsly? )

#10
CharlieKenSon said on May 9, 2013 at 8:14 a.m.

I did not want batgirl in this game. I still would rather have someone else. I feel there were so many other characters that deserved a shot. I main batman and wont pick her. But i would be lying if i said she looks garbage... She looks fun to play, nice gadget moves, good character overall, but that smoke screen teleport tho?.... Im definitely gonna learn her just to know her weaknesses and what/how her moves are punishable.

#11
Baby_Astaroth said on May 9, 2013 at 8:14 a.m.

Definitely not regretting that season pass purchase.

Finally a decent alt for The Joker.

#12
Hadouken_Os said on May 9, 2013 at 8:14 a.m.

Dat Killing Joke Joker.

Keaton Era Batsuit and I will love you again, NRS. You screwed with my emotions with this Zod/Scorpion/Battits stuff.

#13
Cammystrike said on May 9, 2013 at 8:16 a.m.

Kinda of meh...at least super is cool.

#14
maxs2d2ace said on May 9, 2013 at 8:16 a.m.

DUN DUN DUN DUN DUN DUN DUN DUN... BATMAN GIRL!!!

#15
NyuBomber said on May 9, 2013 at 8:16 a.m.

Also, am I the only one that while using smokebombs to enable teleports on a non-powered character is an elegant solution and definitely differs Batgirl from Batman and Nightwing, it would've been better to use the array of teleport options and ideas on a character with teleporting in their powerset?

Like, say, Zatanna. !TROPELET

#16
Sasuga said on May 9, 2013 at 8:16 a.m.

Ok. So I won't be picking her up after all.

#17
Dionysos said on May 9, 2013 at 8:18 a.m.

I must be one of the few people who's fine with the known DLC-characters (even Scorpion, for being NRS mascotte is a good choice for a guest character). Only the fact Martian Manhunter is missing puts me off. Everything is still possible, so I do hope it won't stay at 4 DLC characters. :)

#18
Chronoless said on May 9, 2013 at 8:19 a.m.

Every time I watch these, I am hype, then..... at the end the loser get back up.... and I go WTF? It like they get up and a popup is suppose to say "Finish Him" and the hero taunts with a "Friendship"

#19
EyePawd said on May 9, 2013 at 8:20 a.m.

I will admit that I was a detractor when it came to the Batgirl rumor, but after seeing the gameplay, I like what they've done.

The teleports, air grabs, and air launcher moves are all great, and I love how her fighting style involves putting her body weight into her attacks (like the use of dropkicks and shoulder tackles.)

The costume design is great, the super made me giddy, and I love the Killing Joke references.

Score a positive for NRS.

#20
ButterKnife said on May 9, 2013 at 8:21 a.m.

Looks really fun. She needs a Cassandra costume as an alt though.

#21
Rocwing said on May 9, 2013 at 8:21 a.m.

#3 was that a Young Justice reference you made in regards to being "underwhelmed"? Prob not.. had to try.

I like it.. maybe I just like it because she's not Lobo? I don't really know.

#22
CharlieKenSon said on May 9, 2013 at 8:23 a.m.

Please dont let zod and scorpion be the other DLC tho.. Even tho NRS can make zod different, there's better options as a character!!!! And putting scorpion in injustice is like putting captain america in MK!

jtir123 said on May 9, 2013 at 8:23 a.m.

I like Babs. Her moveset looks decent and super is awesome.

Don't like the thought of Scorpion being in the game still.

#25
NyuBomber said on May 9, 2013 at 8:25 a.m.

@19: It boggles the mind why they left that in.

Somebody once suggested it was going to lead to a "finisher" system like Fatalities, but appropriate. ...Of course, that turned out to be nothing.

Somebody suggested that it was because DC didn't want it to appear as if their characters were "defeated" or "beaten." Yet Grundy tosses people, Joker sets them on fire, Black Adam electrocutes and stands on their body, Sinestro makes them submit, Harley kicks them, Evil Supes makes them kneel, Ares impales them...

"But Nyu, those are all villains!"

And Flash tornado punches people away.

It just looks bad. Who knows.

#26
madviolence said on May 9, 2013 at 8:26 a.m.

That Joker alt was obviously going to show up eventually, good timing on that one. Batgirl seems OK, as others have stated, a more batmanish character than Batman himself.

#27
Sanox said on May 9, 2013 at 8:26 a.m.

wow, she looks sooooooooooooooooooooooooo fun to play.

anyone else got a little makoto (blazblue) vibe from her?

#28
NyuBomber said on May 9, 2013 at 8:26 a.m.

@22: If it was a YJ reference, I would use whelmed.

#29
Snake_Eyes said on May 9, 2013 at 8:27 a.m.

best part of this trailer was the killing joke skin for the joker

but babs looks okay, I really like her super move, and the sky grapple, and move that ties up your opponent are pretty neat

#30
Dionysos said on May 9, 2013 at 8:28 a.m.

The other DLC will most probably be Zod and Scorpion. If I were able to replace one of both I'd replace Zod by Martian Manhunter, even though Scorpion has nothing to do with DC. I think new fighting games should uphold the tradition of including at least one guest character (and at NRS 'guests' aren't complete jokes like in SFxT, Kratos and Freddy were pretty 'okay').

#31
HyperGadoken said on May 9, 2013 at 8:30 a.m.

She does need a new fighting stance though. It looks like she's trying to hold her legs so she doesn't piss herself

#32
FrenchPingu said on May 9, 2013 at 8:31 a.m.

Dayum she looks cool and fun to play, plus her super makes me laugh.
"Killing Jokes sold separately" That's a shame, but NRS loves that $$$

#33
LarsMasters said on May 9, 2013 at 8:32 a.m.

Next will some 3rd DLC fighters (could be Zod, if someones right about the hack note from disc), then....... Scorpion

#34
SnakeX said on May 9, 2013 at 8:34 a.m.

Eh, no thanks.

#35
Bulletwithbatwings said on May 9, 2013 at 8:34 a.m.

The Joker costume makes Batgirl's inclusion worth it. I'm glad that at the least they are giving a theme to the DLC (Killing joke, Teen Titans, etc). I'm guessing Zod will come with a "Man of Steel" or classic superman costume, and Scorpion will come with a Batman costume, just because he doesn't have enough already.

#36
lord_robbyshin said on May 9, 2013 at 8:34 a.m.

@28

Yep, that was the first thought that came to my mind. Might have to try her out after all!

#37
AdaWongLover5 said on May 9, 2013 at 8:35 a.m.

Wow... I'm at a loss for words. She looks fun. Really fun.

#38
Aquaman said on May 9, 2013 at 8:35 a.m.

I'm getting the killing joke skin... Love Bat girls voice actress but don't like the character... Hope the rumors are false because I don't want Zod or Scorpion... I need Dr. Fate, Zatanna, or Black Manta.

#39
CodyPajamas said on May 9, 2013 at 8:36 a.m.

Prepare your hard drives for another 200MB compatibility patch.

johnoftheuk said on May 9, 2013 at 8:37 a.m.

Love the Joker Alt, Brian Bollands' Joker is definitive as is Todd Mcfarlanes' Spidey

#41
CharlieKenSon said on May 9, 2013 at 8:38 a.m.

@31

Freddy and kratos were "okay"?!?! U krazy.. They were awesome! And if for some reason u didnt like them... At least they FIT in MK with their brutal bloody nature. Scorpion or any MK character without a fatality is like guile without his hair and comb. It just doesnt go..

#42
Gailim said on May 9, 2013 at 8:40 a.m.

@24 the same place spiderman webs onto in MVC3

#43
RW said on May 9, 2013 at 8:40 a.m.

She looks cooler than Lobo to me.
Lobo and her are the only god parts about the DLC characters...

Scorpion and Zod are going to suck.

Black Manta or Kaldur'an would be awesome.

Dedemaru said on May 9, 2013 at 8:43 a.m.

#33 NRS loves the money? Not really. Compared to other FG companies and game companies in general, NRS has been quite fair. If anything, Warner Bros. loves the cash.

Batgirl is like Sentinel. She looks fun to play, but the character is a terrible choice.

#48
Utsusemi said on May 9, 2013 at 8:49 a.m.

She is far from amazing to be honest, but I really like her stance haha.

#49
FatMus2 said on May 9, 2013 at 8:50 a.m.

She looks pretty good. And I love the Killing Joke shirt outfit. :D
Good job NRS!

wow i cant believe you consider that alot. Hell hd trailers on the psn are more than that. at least i dont have to prepare my wallet for an overprice.

#51
blazebwoy said on May 9, 2013 at 8:52 a.m.

not hatin but she looks meh, yeah she's not a Batman clone but still not really hyped, still a wasted slot and poor Lobo, i knoew he was going to end up being the Ghost Rider of this game, not to mention his move set seems to be similar to GR's too

#52
Rahavic said on May 9, 2013 at 8:52 a.m.

Honestly the most mind boggling thing to me on the whole falling down and getting back up again thing is; why at the end of a round do they fall and stay down?

It's like the 2 things are completely backwards. End if a round the fall and stay down. End of a fight the fall down and get up? Pfft mindfux

Just so odd.

Where is all the Batgirl hate now?

#57
Orichalkos said on May 9, 2013 at 8:57 a.m.

If how Lobo was done is any indication that Joker DLC might come free with the compatibility patch for Bat girl.

#58
RoanHen said on May 9, 2013 at 9 a.m.

What a waste of slot. I won't buy her... worst choise ever, i wished it was Zatanna or Poison Ivy in her place.

#59
MALDA_IS_BACK said on May 9, 2013 at 9:02 a.m.

Damm she is a waste of space in my opinion and I don't I'm not the only who thinks the same.

#60
gqazndood said on May 9, 2013 at 9:03 a.m.

The season's pass was already hacked and there were 4 DLC files in there for characters a crazy load of skins.

Unfortunately we already know Zod and Scorpy are next on the list. :(

#61
Snow said on May 9, 2013 at 9:04 a.m.

While I still don't quite agree with her conclusion, I'm hard pressed to say she doesn't look fun.
Definitely seeing some MK vs DCU Batman influence in her.

#62
Mac_Gargan said on May 9, 2013 at 9:04 a.m.


She doesn't look too bad. I'll give her a try.

Are we 100% sure that there's only gonna be 4 DLC characters?

#63
N0_0NE_SPECIAL said on May 9, 2013 at 9:04 a.m.

Her super doesn't make any sense.

#64
nZiFFLe said on May 9, 2013 at 9:06 a.m.

ok, that was pretty sick; my reservations have been crushed. i think i'm gonna main her

i just hope zod and scorpion aren't the next 2 dlc characters..

#65
Snow said on May 9, 2013 at 9:09 a.m.

To everyone thinking they'll get Jokers outfit with a comparability patch; there's a note at the end of the trailer: "Killing Joke Pack Sold Separately"

#66
Fightingfan69 said on May 9, 2013 at 9:10 a.m.

Admittedly, I was hoping for some other more interesting Female characters but, She looks heck of a lot of fun to play. I think she will be an interesting characters and surprisingly doesn't look like a clone of any characters on the roster. That is pretty impressive.

I really hope Scorpion isn't in though Zod might be interesting and the most likely because of the movie tie-in. interesting skin for Joker.

#67
eatm said on May 9, 2013 at 9:17 a.m.

we will need an Injustice GAU 2 to get all the DC characters people wants

#68
MMGboys said on May 9, 2013 at 9:25 a.m.

Forget everything I said about batgirl she can fight. Her super looks like it can only be done in the air, I guess her trait is electric gloves.

Still Static shock would have been better

DAT JOKER ALT XD

#69
Paradonyx said on May 9, 2013 at 9:26 a.m.

wait i dont get her super. she shoots a zipline gun...into the sky? what the heck does it grab on to? and if she did an EX atrack, how does she still have meter for her super? those things aside, she looks really fun. being the only character with an air super so far is a nice touch too.

#70
CelestialCondor said on May 9, 2013 at 9:27 a.m.

The only cool thing about this trailer is that Joker alt otherwise I'm still not content with the choice of Batgirl. Hopefully the other two DLC characters are better. To those who want more DLC characters Ed said that there is a POSSIBILITY of being more DLC characters but who actually knows if it will happen.

#71
Dionysos said on May 9, 2013 at 9:28 a.m.

@42. I agree they were awesome, gameplay-wise Kratos is kind of slow (but great damage-wise). Freddy is a good character all-together. Anyway, I don't mind a Scorpion without a fatality and I genuinely wonder how NRS would try to fit him in this universe.

#72
TheRyzzl said on May 9, 2013 at 9:32 a.m.

She looks fun. Her costume though is fkin awful. Still would of preferred MMH. Actually if they replaced scorpion with MMH I woulnd't even give a crap about another bat character or zod.

#73
MagnesiumMg12 said on May 9, 2013 at 9:32 a.m.

Someone said Lobo was the GR of the game? Being GR isn't suffering they just messed him over in MvC. Lobo is how GR should have been in MvC.

#74
drunkendan said on May 9, 2013 at 9:35 a.m.

I would have liked Cassandra Cain but damn NR did a great job with Babs! They got her down perfectly and gave her a great move set. I actually want the game more now, and she is a big part of it

#75
GH0ST said on May 9, 2013 at 9:39 a.m.

Hmm meh I'll wait and see how see plays to reserve judgement

#76
roknin said on May 9, 2013 at 9:43 a.m.

Yup, will be playing Babs. Fun times ahead. Love the voice they went with too.

Looks like she latched the grappling hook in her super on to the same building Spidey always does. :-p

#77
Cammystrike said on May 9, 2013 at 9:48 a.m.

It's ironic that Scorpion is the only DLC character I'm truly excited about. But then again, apart from the super iconic DC characters I don't know any of them, like I do Scorpion.

#78

Okay, I admit I was DEF a Batgirl hater...

But I shall choose to be a hypocrite and pick her up first day! lol Her move set looks completely awesome.

And that KJ Alt?? Love it.

#82
caloge said on May 9, 2013 at 9:54 a.m.

While she doesnt look a batman clone, it does look like they essentially took a bunch of tools they could have given batman and just made another character out of it. Batman probably would have been broken otherwise, so i am fine with it, but it certainly just seems like she is a different batman.

#83
Stitch_Kun said on May 9, 2013 at 9:54 a.m.

Looks like she may be another main of mine. That was AMAZING

#84
xHBOMBx said on May 9, 2013 at 9:55 a.m.

So I wonder how all the haters who complained that she would be "a batman clone" are reacting right now. It's okay haters you can come over to the cool side of the Injustice community we accept you! XD

#85
Soriphen said on May 9, 2013 at 9:59 a.m.

Holy s**t, she has cool moves and DAT SUPER. Not even a long super too, just short and sweet!

#86
Snake_Eyes said on May 9, 2013 at 10:02 a.m.

@85 I think most people knew she wouldn't be a "clone" we do own the game, we know shazam/black adam are different and GL/Sinestro are different, the complaint was (my complain at least) is that while batgirl looks fun and plays differently, she still fundamentally uses the same stuff as Batman, this game needs ORIGINAL powers, not off-shoots of other characters, by original I mean someone like poison ivy with plant based attacks, or black canary with sonics

#87
KaboomKid said on May 9, 2013 at 10:04 a.m.

Now that I see this Batgirl gameplay, I'm even more surprised that they didn't give these moves to Batman. I thought they were trying to make Batman's techniques seem more grounded or something, but these teleports and zipline moves are totally his shtick in other media.

#88
Redblaze27 said on May 9, 2013 at 10:12 a.m.

The only problem here is that its yet another Batman character.

#89
xHBOMBx said on May 9, 2013 at 10:13 a.m.

@87 Did you even watch the trailer XD. She has none of Batman's gadgets...

#90
theshredder39 said on May 9, 2013 at 10:14 a.m.

She seems fun to play, I have the season pass anyway so I might as well try her for myself, and that Joker alt is genius I just hope they give him a Red Hood alt later down the road.

#91
Xoleworld said on May 9, 2013 at 10:15 a.m.

When's Raven turning blue?

#92
100thMonkey said on May 9, 2013 at 10:19 a.m.

Like I know Zod will, I knew she'd play out differently, still doesn't make it a shame other DC characters would have been more interesting like Manhunter. Oh well, got the season pass, I will be downloading her. Kind of glad the killing joke isn't included, I main him and his Arkham costume is 10x better imo. Hopefully it will include a better costume for one of the characters with less costumes, the flashpoint batman didn't cut it for me personally.

#93
MentalFloss said on May 9, 2013 at 10:19 a.m.

Screw Batgirl, I WANT THAT JOKER ALT!!!!!!!!!!!!

#94
AugustAPC said on May 9, 2013 at 10:21 a.m.

Wow, are people complaining about the realism of the moves in this game? Are we getting that stupid? All her moves make as much sense as Adon jumping off the side of a stage that has no wall. Stop bitching over stupid crap.

Regardless, she looks way cooler than I expected. Her super is ridiculously creative and one of the best in the game. Her special moves seem pretty crazy too. I like how her EX repel strings up the enemy. She seems way flashier than Batman and Nightwing. Kinda like she's showing them up... it's weird... she never came off to me as that great a fighter, hard to imagine her doing all this crazy sh*t. Really like her stance, too.

#95
chipndip said on May 9, 2013 at 10:24 a.m.

So how many dudes thought that some of these gadgets should've been on Batman to make him more interesting instead of throwing them on Batgirl? The grapple gun could've been used to spice up Batman's mobility so much, but instead he gets a glide. Yipee...a glide...

The only thing I got from this trailer was that Batgirl is a better Batman than Batman in this game.

#96
MALDA_IS_BACK said on May 9, 2013 at 10:24 a.m.

Capcom fanboys trying to makes sense in a fighting you gotta be kidding me lol

#97
MentalFloss said on May 9, 2013 at 10:25 a.m.

I like how they also gave her an off-screen dive similar to DDay to combat the huge "zoning" problem everyone is whining about. And yeah that super is pretty sweet. But that KJ Joker can't come soon enough.

#98
chipndip said on May 9, 2013 at 10:28 a.m.

@90: Those were ALL Batman's gadgets. It's just that Batman isn't particularly using the smoke bombs and Knightfall Gloves in this game. He still used them in other media before.

Evil_Hayato said on May 9, 2013 at 10:31 a.m.

She looks fun to play... im going to say what most are saying, not looking forward to zod and scorpions inclusion. Im sure they ll turn out cool but zod is just a stupid ass character.. MMH would obviously have been a better choice. Scorpion Im a bit indifferent about but leaning more towards not wanting him in.

@#96 I hate that stupid glide, it messes me up half of the time.
