The sixth DLC character Zatanna is now available on Xbox 360 Marketplace and will be available soon for PlayStation 3. Check out the new <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G3Xcx3s-CIE">Zatanna History Trailer</a> below.

<center><iframe width="560" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/G3Xcx3s-CIE" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></center>

Also of note, that it was announced on last night's NetherRealm stream that there will be no balance patch to go along with Zatanna because it is <a href="http://shoryuken.com/2013/08/12/next-injustice-gods-among-us-patch-still-in-development-will-not-be-released-with-zatanna-tomorrow/">still in development</a>. I would expect it in another few weeks, once people find all of the issues with Zatanna post-launch.

Also <a href="http://testyourmight.com/threads/a-new-skin-for-zod-hidden-into-zatannas-files.36920/">the keen eye of darkgodalex over on Test Your Might</a> noticed that there was a new Zod character file inside of the <b>Zatanna Compatibility Update package</b>. So I decided to take a look myself using <a href="http://www.gildor.org">Gildor's Unreal Model Viewer</a>. I found a Zod Man of Steel style crest in the UI texture that is used for the player's super meter. Then I looked at the model file itself, and found his Man of Steel skin and a armored model to go along with it.

You can see it all below:

So unless this file's inclusion was a mistake, it appears we'll be getting a Man of Steel Zod skin for sale sometime soon. I'm guessing that he'll be able to be played along with the <a href="http://shoryuken.com/2013/08/12/next-injustice-gods-among-us-patch-still-in-development-will-not-be-released-with-zatanna-tomorrow/">aforementioned upcoming balance patch</a>. So stayed tuned for that official render and more info.

<b>Update 8/14</b>: Appears that <a href="http://www.gamefaqs.com/users/Knightman2/boards">Knightman2 on GameFAQs</a> posted up <a href="http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/672472-injustice-gods-among-us/66976757">a few screenshots of Zod hacked to work on his modded console</a> which I posted one of below.

Knightman2 also says Zod currently has the same match intro and voice, so it's looking bad for a <a href="http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0788335/">Michael Shannon</a> voice for his character which is likely a cost issue and we instead get the regular <a href="http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0636046/">Nolan North</a> voice. This could change before release though, but I wouldn't bet on it.

Hi all, it's Omega Darko (Darkgodalex on Test your might), i m happy to see that modders has successed to open Char_Zod_A.xxx.
Is there a way to have a little video Zod Gameplay with this Skin? Like a trailer under 1:30?
Thanks

Damn! That Zod skin looks awesome, hopefully it can be released sooner rather than later as it seems mostly done. I wonder if it will be coming with a different voice, although the MOS Supes skin didn't have one so I doubt it will. Still the costume looks great.

Actually i can't affirm if his voice is different or no because i can't extract files from Char_Zod_A.xxx but i ve send the file to modders. As u see, they ve extracted textures files with success. Maybe if they make a video on youtube with this skin, we can hear if his voice is different or no.

The modder who actually got the character playable on his modded console said the voice is the same. See the update in the OP above.

Patrick were you able to find another Zatanna model? NRS posted an ingame model of her on their Facebook page that looked a lot less muddy and had more plump facial features.

You mean her render? Those are typically higher resolution and edited before release. There is no other model for Zatanna in the game.

This looks pretty in game to me. Even her Arcade Ladder renders don't look like this

The hair is A LOT more detailed and the eyes and nose aren't as narrow.

Jesus, looking at it side by side it looks like a PS3-PSP comparison

Was that screenshot released or taken from a video? If it was a screenshot they put out, it was probably touched-up or used a different model. That other screenshot is biased though. Even the hottest looking chick can look ugly on a bad photo.

That doesn't even look like a touchup. It looks like they removed the trashbag that called hair from her head and gave her a proper do. I actually thought they changed her model. Damn I feel like a sucker :(
