Fresh off their starring turns in Suicide Squad, both Harley Quinn and Deadshot will be front and center when the DC fighting game sequel hits shelves next year.

Both are shown off in the latest trailer, which also gives us a glimpse at a number of armor variations you can earn for the Suicide Squad members.

This week, we're casting our gaze at the greatest quarter-munching, joystick-waggling, button-mashing comic book video games.
FromSoftware's Dark Souls series of video games have captured players' imaginations and fueled their frustrations with its no-holds-barred, no-quarter-given style of gameplay.
