Injustice DLC: Mortal Kombats Scorpion Gameplay Trailer

A whirlwind of speculation combusts into hellfire as DC Entertainment Co-Publisher Jim Lee and NetherRealm Studios Creative Director Ed Boon combine to present the latest downloadable addition to Injustice: Gods Among Us! Mortal Kombat's Scorpion has made the leap and is kicking butt in a new feature trailer!

Update (June 4): Scorpion is now available to DLC Season Pass holders. Everyone else can purchase starting June 11. [via @noobde]

Scorpion gets a fresh look courtesy of the DC Co-Publisher [Lee], who is better known to millions of fans as a comic book penciler on titles like Batman, Justice League & X-Men. The new design takes inspiration from the iconic ninja look of the games, embellishing it with a fantastical flourish befitting a cross-dimensional adventure.

The crossover is destined to spark debate wtihin the fanbase, but draws precedent from NetherRealm Studios' previous work in the 2008 crossover: Mortal Kombat versus DC Universe. To sweeten the deal for DC diehards; the trailer features a new Blackest Night Superman skin, as well as a suggestive post-credits appearance by JLA Watchtower background cameo, Martian Manhunter. A surprising omission from the outset, it's fair to say the Martian is a likely prospect for DLC.

Previous experiences with the DCU don't appear to have better prepared Scorpion for his guest role. Sub-Zero makes a cameo appearance in the ninja spectre's fight intro -- a sequence that sees Scorpion unexpectedly plucked from the Koliseum stage of the last Mortal Kombat game (2011)! Don't expect to see Sub-Zero in DLC any time soon, though. Boon tweets "... One is enough. Like Freddy Krueger in [MK]..."

The MK fan service doesn't end with soft explanations. Scorpion is given the full treatment in-game, adapting everything you'd expect into the Injustice formula. Super-moves send the fight to Hell with cinematic results, complete with Scorpion's trademark spear attack, and penchant for shouting. Ed Boon continues his prolific run as the Guinness World Record holding voice of the vengeful spirit.

Injustice: Gods Among Us is out now. Scorpion will join Lobo, Batgirl and a range of costume packs available for download via PlayStation Network and Xbox LIVE. Characters are $4.99 (400MS Points) each, with a 4-for-3 discount attached to Season Pass characters.

Scorpion is one of sixty-four characters vying for the title of Supreme Mortal Kombat Champion! Vote daily and join the discussion to win! For all things Gods Among Us; the DC Universe Injustice forum is for you!

It is official.

NRS is incapable of doing anything beyond MK.

Scorpion is in the logo. Anything NRS does is technically MK related because of that.

Meh, I would have preferred it being Sub-Zero. I like him a lot more, but it's whatever. But I really dig this look, it's different.

I would've preferred Raiden. He was Superman's primary enemy in MKvsDCU.

I find it funny that I was really excited for Scorpion, and then they get him re-designed by Jim Lee who I hate and he makes Scorpion look like a fucking dork. Worst design in Injustice, barnone. Yeah, his name is Scorpion so let's cover his whole chest witha bulky yellow scorpion. So bad..

Low tier hopefully so no one uses him like Lobo.

I was more hyped for the Martian Manhunter snippet. As far as I can speculate, that's probably Manhunter's victory animation

That would be really lazy of them since that's what he does in The Watchtower....so you're probably right.

lol

Although he'll probably end up being near the top to compensate for MK9.


As for his design, it's really way too over-the top:



Those really hurt the eyes.

Only his hood and mask are good (remind me about his awesome design from MKD). Otherwise it's superhero costume, not warrior's.
While fitting for this particular game, I hope his design in the next MK will have nothing to do with such style.

I wasn't excited for scorpion at all until I saw him costume and then I was like dude that's awesome. Now I'm actually hype to play as him even though he shouldn't be in this game.

I like it. But that doesn't prove anything besides
Boon hates us.

The costume is awesome, with the minor exception of spikes on his costume. It reminds me of the way the ninja hood looked like in his MK1 sprite, that's just sweet. That's how it should be if they want him to look like a ninja (even though he isn't.)

What I don't like is that his spear is shaped like a scorpion tail. No. Yeah, his name is "Scorpion", but that doesn't mean he should be decked out in a giant yellow scorpion carcus. Just make him a yellow "ninja".

I consider his presence in Story Mode to be non-canon like Kratos and Freddy in MK (2011).

The outfit is awesome, I'd like Jim Lee's designs on other characters. Maybe he can help with better costumes for MK 10.


I know what I have given you. I do not know what you have received.

Corrected.

The spikes are a bit too much for me as well, but it's not like the Earth will stop because of it, so I'm just fine an' dandy. :D

Honestly, this is easily one of my favorite Scorpion costumes of all fucking time. I really hope he gets it as an additional costume for MK10.

I like that his super is very Kratos-esque. Obviously his encounter with Kratos in MK9 made him realize that he needed more emphasis on his chains.

I like that they made him more spectre like as well. His throw, clash animation, and super really highlight his spectre side.

I'm very excited to play as Scorpion in Injustice.

Scorpion looks awesome!! I hope Jim Lee helps design some of the MK10 fighters who need updates (*cough* Nightwolf)

His gameplay looks awesome as well. Cant wait to see SubZero if the rumors are true.

MMH comes out of the background.... to fight? or to play as?

The only thing that makes me twist my head is the diamond thing in the center of his chest. I mean I get that he "needed" something like that to fit in with the DC superheroes, but a diamond?

I dig the rest of the costume.

I love Scorpion's look here.
Why release him 3rd in the middle of the DC characters though?
Would releasing Zod closer to Man of Steel's release really make sales improve that much?

RE: Injustice DLC: Mortal Kombats Scorpion Gameplay Trailer

I like this costume a lot more than his MK9 primary, but less than his MK9 alternate. I'm happy that they redesigned him rather than recycle him from MK9 (one thing I love about Mortal Kombat is that the characters get new designs in each game). Even if it's not the best Scorpion costume, it's still better than recycling it imo. It keeps it fresh. I agree the spikes on his wrists are a little too over the top. I don't really mind those sword things though.

The thing is, I didn't get Injustice. But I definitely want to get the complete edition when it comes out now. But this really makes me hope another Mortal Kombat will be announced soon.
