Injustice: Gods Among Us DLC won't hit Wii U until summer

DLC for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of DC Comics fighter is already available.

Wii U owners of DC Comics fighter Injustice: Gods Among Us won't be getting any DLC for the game until "this summer," according to the developer's official Twitter account.

DLC for Injustice--Lobo and the Flashpoint skin pack--has already been released for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game, with Batgirl announced as the second DLC character.

"We expect DLC for the Wii U version of Injustice: Gods Among Us to be available this summer. Stay tuned for more details," wrote the game's Twitter account.

Alongside the delayed DLC releases, the Wii U version of Injustice also falls short compared to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game when it comes to online play: the Wii U does not feature lobbies for online play, and neither can players arrange games with their friends. It also cannot synchronise with the Injustice iOS spin-off to unlock the Batman Beyond costume.

You can't setup games with your friends on the Wii U version? That's half the point of having the online service!!! I'm not a fan of the Wii U or Nintendo, but if you're gonna do something, do it right or don't do it at all.

Don't need to be a genius to guess that Wii U's rep is pretty much in the toilet by now...

I didn't even know the game was out for the Wii U. Sucks for the Wii U owners.

The wii u is equal in processing power to the Xbox 360 and PS3 so the game should have all the features across all versions. Nintendo still having a barrier to on-line MP with it's friend code system. May be the issue with no MP lobby.

The delayed DLC seems understandable as getting content placed on the Nintendo eShop is not streamlined as PSN and XboxliveArcade.

Also for those that don't understand why Boon is putting Batgirl into the game is because of this. 4 characters were already locked in the game this has been confirmed by people who have cracked the code now think of the problem with DLC for Mortal Kombat... the issue was that it took far to long for characters to be released so Netherealm's solution to this is simply to have 4 characters locked on the game and release as DLC while the quickly develop 4 other characters while the locked characters are released.

Boon has stated several times from MK .vs. DC Universe to Mortal Kombat that he wants to release more than one batch of DLC, but never gets around to doing it because of time and $. It is a smart business model for Netherealm because they now will get to release 8 characters in the time it would have taken them to release 4 like they did for Mortal Kombat which means more $$$ for Warner Bros. and more characters for the fans.

Again none of this is a fact, I am just stating what I am seeing going on and where I think it is heading.

I wondering if it is really hard to develop stuff for the Wii U. Maybe the system is far too intricate to develop for.

At least Wii U getting the DLC. It's like pulling fingernails to get devs to release this content on Wii U. I got Injustice on the eShop last week. Excellent game, and the extra content is welcome.

Another day, another story about what a waste of money the WiiU is.

This is good that DLC is coming. Rumors were claiming there would be no DLC at all. Summer is not too far off, but it's not like Wii U owners have a choice, I suppose.

I don't understand why the Wii U version doesn't include the lobbies like the PS3/360 versions, but this is rumored on Miiverse to be fixed as well (but don't quote me on that).

And since we're placing the Wii U version alongside the PS3/360 versions, I'd like to point out that I've played Injustice on all 3 consoles and the Wii U version has better framerate than the other two and plays a whole lot smoother. And there are Metacritic users that have confirmed this.

And by then most people will have already sold their copy of the game or the Wii U itself for lack of content.

I love how Batgirl was last on Boon's poll (against Power Girl and Supergirl), yet she's in the game anyways.

Nintendo, it's time to make yet another console...your last chance to fight hard or die trying.  Make a console with terrific specs and hardware which will dazzle not only gamers, but developers, too. It's time to recapture the magic of your SNES days.  How about naming your new console the SNES 2 ?

@DrKill09 I did but I haven't played it for months...I am excited for the PS4 and getting it day 1 and hopefully the next Xbox as well!

@Megavideogamer 

There are no friend codes with Wii U.

@swamptick That is really smart to say. Took a lot of brain cells to say that for you didn't it.

@Micropixel That's good considering the consoles you are comparing it to are a decade old. The WiiU is already a dead system.

@JayQproductions I'm willing to bet it'll sell a bit more this holiday season though with the PS4 and Next Xbox out. 

Most parents just compare prices and opt for the cheaper console.

@TheCyborgNinja That's because the poll was a sham and a marketing tool.  The DLC characters were already decided on and in development.

@badwedgie00 Specs don't make a good console, games do. Wii U is now suffering because of lack of AAA titles. But as far as I know, so will both X720 and PS4 for their first six months, if not year.

And for the record, ports of X360/PS3/PC games to the X720/PS4 with just increased resolution or more blur are not considered AAA titles

@SIDEFX1 @istreakforfood Lately, everything is making us be pitty for nintendo wii U buyers. Do you really think WiiU will stando next gen? I dont think so.

@silvergol @Micropixel yea it is true, I have the ps3 version and it looks horrible compared to the 360 and even worse compared to the Wii U...Don't understand why it couldn't look the same...something about those jagged lines on the buildings really irritates me

@dragonkantus @TheCyborgNinja i bet the decision can from dc on who to put in the game. the way grundy plays they could have just left him off. wish they had done a more diverse set of charaters its all batman & supes baddies and the main leaguers with nightwing and cyborg

@Dark_Mits @badwedgie00 sure it is if it was triple a before porting it to a new system will not change that. what you mean is what they did by porting old games to the system. the concern is will the new 3rd party game triple a or not make it to the wii you. in the last 3 gens only a couple have made it. simple as this we know you will need a different system to play the new madden and gta 5 & the next fifa what else won't make it to the wii u.

@Dark_Mits @badwedgie00 With the rumored line-up of the PS4, it is anything but lacking major titles. On top of that, ports to the next Xbox and PS4 are welcomed at least in my eyes because it makes the transition easier instead of playing games like Watch Dogs on the PS4 or next Xbox I can already grow the next generation library faster and not have to my PS3/360 in use.
