DC Comics has returned to video games in an attempt to battle juggernaut rival MARVEL, and based on the preview, their upcoming release looks to be a hit.

A few years back, DC Universe and Mortal Kombat were thrown together in a console fighting game which allowed players to fight one another using characters from either series. Now it appears that the same engine has been put to use again, this time incorporating just DC Universe characters. As you might expect, the graphics look to be significantly better. Time will tell whether the game’s concept is acceptable to fans, but if the game turns out to be as awesome as the trailer makes it seem, it might not matter.

Based on the trailer, here are the characters you can expect to get in the game:

  • Superman
  • Batman
  • Wonder Woman
  • The Flash
  • Lex Luthor
  • Harley Quinn
  • Solomon Grundy

We’ll be looking forward to more information about this title as the 2013 release date approaches.
