Warner Bros. has just announced Injustice: Gods Among Us, a new fighting game for Wii U featuring characters from the DC Comics universe.
Superman, The Flash, Batman and more will all appear in the new game from NetherRealm Studios, the team behind the rather excellent Mortal Kombat on PS3 and other formats.
Of course Warner Bros. also promised Batman Arkham City for Wii U at last year's E3, and with Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth heading to Wii U too it looks like we won't have any shortage of superheroes to choose from.
Injustice is on the way to Wii U next year.
