Developer Diary: Injustice Red Son Special Content

03/17/2013 :: Posted at 08:11 PM by Mick-Lucifer
NetherRealm Studios Discuss Communist Superman in Red Son Developer Diary.

Cold War hostilities are alive and well thanks to NetherRealm Studios and the Injustice: Gods Among Us Red Son pre-order bonus!

During last week's Battle Arena break; NetherRealm offered a closer look at the origins of their extra missions and bonus costumes in the first developer diary for 2013.

Created by Mark Millar and Dave Johnson; Superman: Red Son is an Eisner Award winning 2004 mini-series published by DC Comics.

A popular Elseworlds tale [divergent from the main DC Universe]; the series tells of a reality where Superman's Kryptonian rocket ship crash landed in 1950s Soviet Russia. The hammer & sickel replace the S of the iconic shield logo as Superman becomes a champion of the USSR and communism.

Superman & Wonder Woman appear with alternate skins very close to the Dave Johnson designs featured in the comic. Solomon Grundy receives the third costume -- an original creation for the game that supersedes other characters from the comic, such as President Lex Luthor, Batman, or Green Lantern.

The Red Son pre-order incentive is available with PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 editions of the standard game. Injustice: Gods Among Us officially hits shelves April 16, in the United States, with a simultaneous release in Australia [17th local]. Europe won't be far behind, April 19.

    Injustice: Gods Among Us Red Son Pre-Order Options:
  • Gamestop: PS3 & 360 (United States)
  • EB Games: PS3 & 360 (Australia)
  • GAME: PS3 & 360 (United Kingdom)

Other pre-order bonuses from participating outlets feature Blackest Night and Arkham City costume packs [full story]. TV's Stephen Amell reprises his Arrow starring role for a special Green Arrow skin inspired by the hit CW programme [full story].

You can get your hands on the source material by purchasing Superman: Red Son digitally from DC Entertainment or collected in print via Amazon. Watch the Injustice Red Son trailer & discuss it all on the DC Universe Injustice forum.
