‘Injustice 2’: Ed Boon Teases Obscure And Third Party Characters

injusticeJust yesterday during a Twich livestream we had the pleasure to look at some new gameplay footage of the upcoming game Injustice 2, this time featuring Damien Wayne as Robin and some of his really sick moves. Besides showing us some new gameplay and details about the game, NetherRealm boss Ed Boon teased about including more somewhat obscure characters on the Injustice 2 roster.

So far the confirmed playable characters in the game are Robin, Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Superman, Supergirl, Aquaman, Atrocitus, Gorilla Grodd, Blue Beetle, and Wonder Woman. And considering that the original game, Injustice: Gods Among Us, features a roster of 30 characters from the DC Comics universe, I think there is plenty of room to include lesser known heroes and villains in the next game.

But one of the most exciting things said by Boon is that here is good chance that NetherRealm will release third-party characters as DLC for Injustice 2, just as they did for Mortal Kombat X. Of course we don’t expect to see Jason Voorhees or The Predator making an appearance, but perhaps we’ll get to see some Mortal Kombat fighters taking on the Justice League.

You can check out the new gameplay trailer showing Robin in action below.

So are you excited to see some new faces in Injustice 2? Which character are you hoping to see in the upcoming game? Let us know in the comments below.

    o really hate this DLC fever. miss the old complete games. waitin’ for the GOTY/Ultimate/Extreme/Awesome edition.

    • SAMURAI36

      Aren’t they releasing the Ultimate Edition on the same day as the Standard this time around?

      • Matias Gagliardone

        I think so but really 100 dollars is just too much I’m still deciding if I’ll buy the Ultimate or not, I was prepared to pay 80 without a doubt

        • SAMURAI36

          Yeah, I feel you on the $100 part. That is pretty steep. I’ll have to decide when the game comes out if I’m gonna spend that much.

          In the meantime, have you seen the beta for the game yet?

          • Matias Gagliardone

            I’m deciding too, do you know if the season pass will include those nine heroes? Because if that’s the case I’ll buy the normal one and maybe buy the season pass later as long as the normal one includes Darkseid.

            Also yes I registered for the beta but then they said the first wave was only for North America, it really upset me, could you get it?

      • Kantinflax

        yep, but the third party heroes won’t be in the ultimate

        • SAMURAI36

          Meh, not all that concerned about those characters. Only the DC ones.

  • SAMURAI36

    Robin’s gameplay was amazing, especially with the sword. This game becomes more & more awesome.
