This time of year is usually pretty slow for games, but the tail end of the current console generation has seen some cracking games released in the last couple of months, from Bioshock: Infinite, through God of War: Ascension, to the well received beat ‘em up Injustice: Gods Among Us. The superhero themed title by the creators of the revitalized Mortal Kombat has been selling well at retail, and now the second DLC character has been announced.
The new character has been confirmed as being Batgirl, and appears to be the Barbara Gordon version of the character, before the accident that forced her to take a more ‘advisory’ crime-fighting role as Oracle. The new character was mistakenly released onto the Xbox Live Marketplace early, and NetherRealm Studios were forced to apologize for the temporary error, before admitting that the “Bat’s out of the bag.”
What do you think of the choice of character? Is there anyone else from DC’s roster that you would prefer to Batgirl? Personally I was hoping for the Mad Hatter but you may think differently – let us know in the usual place.
