Earlier today, Samsung unveiled a brand new Galaxy S7 edge smartphone, the kind of device that Gotham probably deserves but doesn’t really need at all.

DON’T MISS: The iPhone 7 might actually be in trouble

The Galaxy S7 edge Batman edition is a regular Galaxy S7 edge restyled to look match Batman, which is all you need to know if you’re a fan of the Dark Knight. If you’re not, then having a black Galaxy S7 edge in your pocket that features a Batman logo on the back and Batman lock screen theme might not make much sense.

The special Galaxy S7 version commemorates the three-year anniversary of the release of Injustice: Gods Among Us, a Batman mobile game. Conveniently, though, the launch of the Galaxy S7 edge Batman edition follows the release of the Batman v. Superman movie – a blockbuster hit that didn’t get the warmest reception from critics.

The phone will be available for purchase in early June in certain markets, including China, Singapore, Korea, Latin America and others. The handset will ship with a free Gear VR headset, Injustice game credits and Oculus VR content vouchers.

A video showing off the smartphone and the full press release follow below.

Samsung Electronics, today announced the Galaxy S7 edge Injustice Edition in collaboration with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment.

Developed from the ground up by award-winning NetherRealm Studios, the Injustice: Gods Among Us mobile game delivers stunning graphics and a completely unique fighting gameplay experience.

Interactive Entertainment and offer a special edition of Galaxy S7 edge for fans of Injustice: Gods Among Us,” said Younghee Lee, Executive Vice President of Global Marketing, IT & Mobile Division at Samsung Electronics. “Samsung always seeks to provide the best mobile gaming experience for its users, and this partnership reinforces our commitment to the game’s fans.”

The Galaxy S7 edge Injustice Edition package is equipped with a sleek deep black Galaxy S7 edge, accentuated by gold detailing and an iconic seal on the back, inspired by Batman. The package additionally offers a Gear VR (in select territories), along with Injustice game credit and Oculus VR content vouchers.*

The Injustice: Gods Among Us game is available as a free download on Google Play.
