Injustice: Gods Among is one of the most successful games of Netherrealms studios aside from Mortal Kombat. The first game sold 424,000 copies on release while the sequel 500,000 copies. It also won multiple awards. It is inevitable to adapt it into a film. Making it animated and straight to video is a smart decision because R-18 live-action superhero films struggle at the box office these days.
Just before Injustice 2 came out, a teaser video was released showing off what the first wave of DLC characters would be. First was Red Hood, then Sub-Zero, and finally, Starfire. Now, via San Diego Comic Con, we know she’s coming in August, and the team at NetherRealm Studios has shown off her gameplay abilities via a gameplay trailer.
The infamous Batman villain, The Joker, has been confirmed as a playable character in Injustice 2. The announcement came along with a trailer that introduced the character and some of his new abilities, alongside a rather distinctive look that is very different to anything we’ve seen before.
Injustice 2 is taking a much more forward approach with their story this go around. The first time, they actually pulled a bait-and-switch and didn’t reveal that this was a small scale “Crisis” story, as the Justice League of our Earth got mixed up with a darker version from another Earth in the original Injustice. This time though, the focus is soley on this other Earth, and the fallout of what happened in the original game.
