Injustice 2 was announced a few months back during E3, so we’ve all been patiently waiting to hear updates about more new characters and new mechanics we can see in the game. We’ve at least gotten to see the former with the new gameplay trailer that was released at Comic-Con 2016.
The trailer features Wonder Woman – who was pretty much guaranteed to return for the sequel – with a slightly new look, and a very noticeably new move set. In the previous game she had the ability to switch between using her sword and shield, and her lasso at the click of a button. This still seems to be the case, but the moves that come with each weapon set appears to be improved upon and a lot more polished this time around. Her new main outfit also seems to be inspired by the version that Gal Gadot wore in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Even more interesting to see is the inclusion of Blue Beetle, a DC superhero that’s not very well known by average fans. Blessed with an ancient alien scarab (or cursed, according to himself), Jaime Reyes has the ability to conjure up a pretty impressive amount of weapons. We see him take on Wonder Woman in the trailer and hold his own, due to his almost-infinite arsenal. Watch the trailer above to get your first look.
So what do you guys think of the improvements to Wonder Woman and the Inclusion of Blue Beetle? Sound off in the comment section below!
Injustice 2 should be available for release sometime in 2017 and will be available to play on PS4 and Xbox One.
