February has been a good month for Injustice 2 character reveals and gameplay videos. After going virtually radio silent since August, NetherRealm Studios has bestowed video after video, reveal after reveal upon us this month. Given that there's currently a beta going (which we'd love to get into, NetherRealm), it only makes sense the developer would share more information as players got more and more hands-on time with the fighting game sequel.
After announcing Black Canary, Damian Wayne as Robin and Swamp Thing already, a brief spotlight video highlights three more femme fatales from the DC Universe making their appearances in Injustice 2. Catwoman is returning, but she'll be joined by newcomers Poison Ivy and Cheetah to keep the rest of the heroes in check.
As we draw closer to the arrival of NetherRealm Studios' Injustice 2, the developer continues teasing us with roster reveals for the upcoming fighting game set in an alternate DC Universe. While to this point we've mostly seen some of the more traditional heroes and villains from the comics make their way into the game, today's announcement came out of left field.
The Guardian of Earth himself, the Swamp Thing, will be joining the fight between Batman and Superman (and Brainiac) this May. Thanks to a new gameplay trailer, we now know how Swamp Thing will attempt to bring green peace to the world of Injustice.
New details and characters for Injustice 2 are flowing like water now that 2017 is picking up steam. After being silent on the game's roster since August of last year, NetherRealm Studios has divulged two new characters for the upcoming fighting sequel in nearly as many weeks. That can only mean even more character announcements are on the way, but I'm getting ahead of myself. First, we've got to talk about Black Canary bringing the noise in the latest gameplay trailer.
If you've been paying attention to Damian Wayne for even just a little while, you already know he's one Robin you don't want to cross. Batman's son is just that much of a bad little dude. Depending on which alternate timeline you believe happens, he also grows up to be Batman, or in the case of Injustice, he sticks around as Robin after maybe not-so-accidentally killing Nightwing. Five years after the events of the first game, Damian is back, and judging by this new trailer for Injustice 2, he's still just as angry with his father as ever.
Whether old standards of DC lore or simply sensible to what we’ve seen going on in the Injustice storyline, any one of these characters would bring an awesome wrinkle to the game that we’d love to take against our friends. These are the 10 characters we’d love to see in Injustice 2.
To this point, all the Injustice 2 details we've been able to glean from footage has mostly hinted at the roster and the customization options players will face. The narrative was a closely guarded secret until today's new trailer dropped. In addition to getting a few more hints at which fighters are making an appearance in the upcoming sequel, we also learned the massive threat at the core of the story will be none other than Brainiac himself.
Announced at E3 2016, Injustice 2 is the follow-up to NetherRealm Studios' popular DC Comics fighting game, Injustice: Gods Among Us. Taking up some time after the conclusion of the first game's story, Injustice 2 brings with it a new threat to the populace of Earth, along with new heroes and villains to battle it out for dominance in the face of whatever monster lurks in the darkness of space.
Previously only announced with a vague 2017 release timetable, we now know Injustice 2 will be making May 2017 that much more super alongside events like Free Comic Book Day and the theatrical release of Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2.
This week at Gamescom, NetherRealm Studios unleashed its latest two roster additions to Injustice 2 upon the world. 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. Harley Quinn's return was about as easy to predict as the inclusion of the Trinity, but Deadshot is a bit of a surprise addition that gives Injustice 2 a bit more ranged variety.
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.
Announced last month, Injustice 2 will continue NetherRealm's alternate DC Universe take on a world where Superman rules the planet with a benevolent Kryptonian hand. This week at San Diego Comic-Con, NetherRealm announced two new members for the roster: Wonder Woman and Blue Beetle. The roster is still expanding, as Injustice 2 isn't due out until sometime deep into 2017, but right now there's a solid core in place of new and returning characters.
At a roundtable session this weekend, we were able to catch up with DC Universe veteran Phil Lamarr, who plays the returning Aquaman, and newcomer to the multiverse, Laura Bailey, who brings Supergirl to Earth for the first time in the Injustice timeline. We weren't able to pry many secrets from the duo, but we did get a glimpse inside the work the actors put into the sequel.
San Diego Comic Con is without a doubt the biggest event on the industry's calendar, and people will be flying from around the world to attend panels, watch trailers, meet creators, and make friends. This year's event is bigger than ever, with so much going on every single day that it can be difficult to sift through all that information and decide how to spend your time.
With the event only days away, we've looked through the schedules and hand-selected some of the best events happening on Thursday and Friday for fans of comics, collectibles, TV and film, so you can be sure you don't miss that must-see panel or signing.
