Developer NetherRealm showcased some new Injustice 2 gameplay footage, notably featuring the character Robin, among others.
NetherRealm has confirmed that the version of Robin in the game will be Batman’s biological son, Damian Wayne, who is packing a sword, a grappling hook, explosive batarangs, and the ability to teleport.
Also during the livestream, NetherRealm Creative Director Ed Boon said that the game’s roster will boast some rather obscure characters, aka characters that didn’t appear in the first game, and that you might not know anything about. Given that Injustice 2’s roster is set to bigger than the first games, this isn’t very surprising. You have to get those additions from somewhere.
Previously announced playable characters include Aquaman, Atrocitus, Batman, Blue Beetle, Darkseid, Deadshot, Flash, Gorilla Grodd, Harley Quinn, Supergirl, Superman, and Wonder Woman.
Injustice 2 is slated to launch on PS4 and Xbox One on May 16, 2017. Below, you can see the new gameplay footage:
