Evolution Championship Series co-founder Joey “Mr. Wizard” Cuellar announced that NetherRealm Studios’ DC superhero brawler Injustice: Gods Among Us is now a featured game in EVO 2013′s official tournament lineup, joining big-name favorites like Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition.
More good news arrived for Injustice fans today, in the form of a release window for the Wii U version’s downloadable content. Responding to fan questions, the game’s official Twitter account revealed that Wii U users will see its first round of DLC for the superhero and villain brawler this summer.
Wii U players were previously left out in the cold as Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 owners tussled with newcomer Lobo earlier this week. NetherRealm did not detail if the Wii U plans include additional costumes currently exclusive to Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of Injustice.
Batgirl is next up in NetherRealm’s DLC release schedule. Two more as-of-yet unannounced characters will join Injustice‘s roster at a later date.
