Gotham City is gaining greater representation within the ranks of NetherRealm Studios' upcoming DC superhero fighter; today adding one of the most recognized characters in the comic book world -- Catwoman!

Inclusion of the feline femme fatale comes as little surprise, a hot commodity fresh off Anne Hathaway's critically lauded performance in one of the biggest films of the year, The Dark Knight Rises. The announcement also confirms the fifth character to have appeared in NetherRealms' last trist with comic book heroes, 2008's Mortal Kombat versus DC Universe.

The purple spandex of her last fighting game appearance has been traded in for a modified version of the black leather catsuit (with goggles) that has become trademark. As with many of the other iconic heroes, the NetherRealm touch includes some amount of armoring, but not enough to encumber the classically lithe physicality of the deadly Catwoman!

Staying true to the character, the trailer shows off a gamplay style that is fast and highly agile, likely to fall under the "gadget" definition that defines character-specific arena interaction and playstyles. The claws are out -- taloned gloves giving the gimmick a cutting edge throughout the demonstration, Catwoman's trusty whip, also making an appearance.

The trailer comes from [via Shoryuken], apparently one of the character reveals promised for the upcoming Gamescom event. Fellow Gothamite and Bat-protegee, Nightwing, was one of two feature reveals in the last live demo at San Diego Comic-Con. Harley Quinn, Solomon Grundy and Batman number among an already Gotham-heavy cast.

A final playable roster is expected to number in the mid-twenties, with downloadable additions already a much talked about post-release feature. Mortal Kombat Online has taken a tour of the DCU, ranking ten of the Heroes and Villains we'd like to see in Injustice: Gods Among Us. Discuss wishlists and more in the DC Universe Injustice forum.
