Injustice 2 has been one of the top fighting games of the year, and developers NetherRealm Studios revealed the final fighter pack for the game at the Eleague Injustice 2 World Championships this weekend in Atlanta. While it had previously been known that the Atom was going to be headed to the game, a version that looks more like Brandon Routh’s television version than classic Atom and some more surprises were revealed. Enchantress made her appearance in the trailer, facing off against the Atom, and then to the surprise of many, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles appeared in the trailer.
The first interesting thing to note, is that when Raphael first appears, he’s dressed in trench coat and fedora, similar to the goofy disguises used by the turtles in their 1990 film. Then when all four are revealed, the design of them is most definitely influenced by the 1990 film, and thankfully not the Michael Bay versions. Another interesting thing is that they are listed in the pack of three fighters as a singular fighter, so it is unclear how the turtles will function. If it’s a character skin selection at the character selection screen, such as just choosing the Raphael variation or Leonardo variation, or if you can swap between the characters on the fly during the fights, while perhaps still using the same health bar. Regardless, it’s a welcome addition to the already impressive roster for Injustice 2 and should prove to be a very popular character pack for the game.
This is the third and final fighter pack for Injustice 2, following the reveals of characters like Starfire, Black Manta and even Hellboy. It’s easy to think though that many didn’t expect to see the turtles as characters in the fighter, and they will likely be a very popular addition to the game. Are you excited for the turtles in the game, or will you just wait for an Ultimate edition of Injustice 2 to come out before you buy in? Let us know in the comments below.
