Injustice Patch v1.05

First, the 1.05 Title Update was released for all three consoles, yes even Wii U. This was a major change to the game, most generally finally improving anti-air attacks for everyone and lots of other balance tweaks. You can read the official patch notes, or check out FGCSabin's Visual Patch Notes which are embedded below:

Wii U Updates and DLC

So as we mentioend earlier, the Wii U FINALLY got a software update for Wii U. Along with the update, they released all the DLC for the game so far, so all four new characters are now available for purchase. ALSO it seems Warner Bros. have offered some new skin packs that are currently Wii U exclusives.

The Wii U Lockdown Pack is simply just a collection of the Injustice iOS skins packaged together since the Wii U doesn't offer the WBID sync system. It's possible that Warner Bros. may make this skin pack available on the other consoles at a later time. For $3.99 you get the following skins in the Lockdown pack.

Batman Beyond
New 52 Green Lantern
Knightfall Bane
Arkham Harley
Lockdown "Prison" Superman

They also released the formerly Japanese exclusive Ame-Comi skin pack, which includes new manga-influenced skins for Wonderwoman, Catwoman and Harley Quinn. Ame-Comi was a line of figurines in Japan and later a series of comics as well. Here's a look at the Ame-Comi skins in action:

Ed Boon EVO Surprise Tease

Also just now, Ed Boon posted a tease to Twitter about an Injustice surprise to be announced at EVO 2013.

Wonder what that could be, any guesses out there?

Finally after a long wait, available for purchase on Steam. This port is the Komplete Edition which comes with all the four DLC characters and skins already included. The game is currently $29.99 USD but you can find 20-25% discount codes for the game on GreenManGaming.com, which activates on Steam. There is also a Steam Summer Sale rumored to be starting soon, so it's possible it may get a discount there as well.

We look forward to taking a look at the game over the next week, our copy is still downloading now, and hope to give you some thoughts on the game. Also be sure to let us know what you think, in the comments.

This past weekend at San Diego Comic Con 2013 there was a Mortal Kombat Legacy panel. At the panel was Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon, Legacy series Writer/Director Kevin Tancharoen along with cast members Casper Van Dien (Johnny Cage), Brian Tee (Liu Kang), Ian Anthony Dale (Scorpion) and Samantha Tjhia (Kitana). The one thing I took away from this was that Casper Van Dien is a perfect fit for Johnny Cage. I can't wait to see the new series debut later this fall.

They discussed in detail the first series and how they took fan feedback in creating the second season. Included in Season 2 is finally show the tournament and even include fatalities for the first time in the series. They even showed a fatality of Kitana's from the series. Sadly it was not recorded, but TheGamerJulie who uploaded the video of the event below had this to say about the fatality clip:

"They did show a clip where Mileena is fighting Johnny Cage and while she has him pinned to a tree with her weapon she tells Kitana to finish him. Kitana says no and goes on to say she won't fight with her anymore. Kitana and Mileena fight. Mileena is winning the fight and while she has Kitana on the ground Cage jumps in and intervenes in the fight? for a second. The second Mileena is distracted Kitana cuts off Mileena's head with her fan!" - TheGamerJulie

One great momement that went viral soon after the panel was Ed Boon doing Scorpion's GET OVER HERE live on stage. This is the first time I've seen this live, and it's amazing how perfectly he does it without editing even over 20 years later.

You can watch the panel courtesy of TheGamerJulie in full below:

It's likely Warner Bros. recorded the panel and will release a better version of it sometime in the future, but until then this version is perfectly watchable.
