Since the first day Injustice: Gods Among Us was announced the NetherRealm Studios team has tried hard to distance the game from Mortal Kombat. Every interview with the team they liked to stress that point and be clear that this is just not another MK game. Then months ago a rumor sprung up that Scorpion was poised to become a DLC character in the game. It made no sense to me, why would they spend all that time distancing themselves from MK just to throw a MK character into the game.

Well I was wrong, it appears that the designers at NetherRealm Studios have included him in Injustice: Gods Among Us after all. Best of all, he was redesigned by DC Comic's Jim Lee. He appears to have the same specials as in Mortal Kombat (2011) but I'm sure he plays differently.

Check out his the reveal/gameplay trailer below:

Scorpion will be available on Xbox Live and PlayStation Network for free for Season Pass holders and for $4.99 for non-Season Pass holders in the near future.

Also who is that at the end of the trailer? Hmmmm. ;)

Here's the press release:
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today released an all-new video revealing legendary Mortal Kombat character Scorpion as the next DLC character that will be available for the DC Comics fighting game Injustice: Gods Among Us. The version of Scorpion seen in the game is designed by Jim Lee, Co-Publisher at DC Entertainment, and pays homage to NetherRealm Studios’ original blockbuster franchise.

Scorpion will be available on Xbox LIVE® Marketplace for 400 Microsoft Points and PlayStation®Network at a price of $4.99.

Developed by award-winning NetherRealm Studios, Injustice: Gods Among Us introduces a new franchise in the fighting game genre and a brand new story created in collaboration between NetherRealm Studios, DC Entertainment and comic book writers Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti. As the story unfolds, players will experience the power, gadgetry and unparalleled strength of some the most popular DC Comics heroes and villains, such as Batman, Superman, The Flash, Wonder Woman, Green Arrow, Aquaman, The Joker and others, as they engage in epic battles in a world where the line between good and evil is blurred.

I would be so pissed if I was a DC fan right now. But I'm not, so it's cool. This might actually make me consider picking this game up. Maybe. When the price comes way down.

This is SO disappointing. I just wish they would have kept it all DC. Why do we need to play as an MK character in this game at all? COME ON, BOON, REMOVE THY BUTT FROM SCORPION'S SAUSAGE

Im liking that Scorpion is added. I knew he would be added after knowing the leaks. Besides if there was going to be another DC character added it would just be a Batman character or Superman character.

Agreed! But if I were in Boon's position, Jade would be in all the games I create. Lol @Immortal Reaver: [SPOILER] Martian Manhunter was revealed in the ending of Scorpion's trailer. [/SPOILER]
