Injustice: Gods Among Us is a heroic beat-em-up featuring a host of characters from the DC universe, and is on its way to Wii U as well as PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Warner Bros. has now revealed the game's release dates: 16th April in North America and 19th April in Europe.

The fighter does have a bit of pedigree already considering the fact its been developed by NetherRealm Studios, the same team that successfully rebooted Mortal Kombat in 2011. It allows you to play as a plethora of recognisable characters like Batman, Bane, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Joker, Green Arrow, The Flash and Green Lantern.

A Collector's Edition of the game has also been announced, however it will only be available for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions, leaving a certain feeling of injustice within Wii U owners. It has Steelbook packaging and contains a statue of Batman fighting Wonder Woman, an Injustice comic book and additional DLC character skins for Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman.
