There can be fewer more fun and exciting things than taking two super heroes and making them face off in a battle. Forgetting the drudgery of Batman Vs Superman, as let’s face it, it was simply awful, the sight of two virtually indestructable super-human beings beating seven bells out of each other is mouth-watering at worst. NetherRealm Studios, with Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment are bringing a second helping of this fun, based primarily off the DC hero universe, in Injustice 2.
They have released a new gameplay trailer, featuring the fighting talents of the feral Cheetah, in preparation for the impending release. Watch on as Cheetah performs acrobatic kicks, slashes, jumps and throws against the likes of Wonder Woman and Deadshot. Cheetah joins the roster with the already announced, and trailered, Firestorm, Doctor Fate, Catwoman, Poison Ivy and Black Canary. These will join the usual likes of Batman, Superman, Swamp Thing and other DC universe powerhouses, ready to duke it out, mano-a-mano.
Injustice 2 will feature those mentioned and others in a massive roster of DC Super Heroes and Super Villains. Just as with the first release, it will allow the player to build and power-up the ultimate version of their favourite DC characters.
Injustice 2 will be heading to Xbox One from the 19th of May, and is mostly available for pre-order now, in three flavours, Standard, Digital Deluxe and Ultimate Editions. Digital Deluxe Edition will include three extra DLC fighters and the Powergirl character skin for Supergirl.
Ultimate Edition, with pre-orders opening soon, will include nine extra DLC fighters, the Powergirl skin, plus alternate looks for The Flash and Green Lantern.
