Injustice: Scorpion Highest Selling DLC According to Director

01/27/2014 :: Posted at 03:28 PM by Mick-Lucifer
Crossover Ninja Highest Selling Injustice DLC Says Creative Director!

He landed in download channels to a chorus of mixed reaction, but it seems no amount of ire could stop Scorpion becoming the highest selling DLC for Injustice: Gods Among Us!

The accolade was revealed by Injustice Creative Director Ed Boon, who invited Twitter followers to guess who took the top spot as "highest selling" content [see; Reply].

Gaming comics fans were among the most incensed by the inclusion, with Comic Book Resources calling the choice an "Injustice". The nature of guest characters remains ever controversial. CBR note the common complaint: "... when DC has a library of over 2000 unique characters for NetherRealm to pull from, with a myriad of designs and personalities, why would any developer draw from another source?"

The Mortal Kombat guest fighter edges out popularly requested downloadable DC Universe heavyweights: Martian Manhunter & Zatanna! The mascot ninja preceded the pair in the post-release cycle.

DLC Season Passes controversially included Scorpion as one of four unannounced characters in a drip release package deal. Exactly how sales data breaks down remains unknown, with sources telling us Warner Brothers regards such information as highly confidential. At the time of writing we were unable to obtain any additional sales information.

What is clear is that Scorpion was received well enough by gamers to register note. The mascot ninja has always shown strong crossover appeal and was given a faithful treatment beneath the Jim Lee designed hood [full story] -- sure to appeal to Mortal Kombat converts!
