Our favourite leather-clad cat lover, Catwoman, has been confirmed as a playable character for DC fighter Injustice: Gods Among Us in a brand new trailer.
Catwoman joins the current confirmed lineup including DC comic favourites such as Batman, Cyborg, Harley Quinn, Nightwing, Solomon Grundy, Superman, The Flash, and Wonder Woman.
The feline fatale has a touch of a steampunk feel to her outfit in Injustice: Gods Among Us and is all leather and straps. The iconic leather catsuit is still the core of her outfit, but it is complemented by googles and a brown leather corset and backpack (presumably to contain all her tricks and treats).
This version of Catwoman is kitted out for fighting with metal bracers on her forearms that end in long, sharp claws. Similar features appear on her knees and feet with leather kneepads topped with metal and curved claws on her boots.
We also got a look at some of the other environmental attacks including an RPG and a military style vehicle firing machine guns. In the EVO gameplay footage, we spotted a LEGO Joker head in the background which we were later told is an explosive canister.
“We can’t wait to reveal Injustice: Gods Among Us because it will give our fans and gamers an epic experience as they battle like gods as their favorite DC Comics villains and heroes,” said Ed Boon, Creative Director, NetherRealm Studios. “Our team is excited to make a fighting game that is filled with fast-paced action, incredible story-telling and iconic DC Comics characters.”
Injustice: Gods Among Us is scheduled for release in 2013 for Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii U.
