After much teasing and an unexpected delay, the newest character on the Injustice 2 roster has been confirmed by Ed Boon and NetherRealm Studios today. And his name (er…it’s name…) is Swamp Thing! The reveal stacks atop a host of new character announcements, including DC greats like Black Canary and Robin. While the returning classics like Superman and Batman are welcome reveals, the new roster members are much more interesting because they demonstrate NetherRealm’s ability to innovate and expand on their fighting games. These new characters bring their own movesets and playstyles for fans to master, and swapping out members of the roster extends the longevity of the franchise. Hopefully, Injustice 2 will continue to impress all the way through launch. Check out the gameplay reveal trailer for Swamp Thing below, and if you’re curious about all the previous announcements, we’ve also compiled a list of all the confirmed characters beneath the video.
Here’s the list of confirmed characters so far:
-Darkseid (Pre-order Bonus)
-Robin (Damien Wayne)
-Power Girl (Alternate Skin for Supergirl)
Pick up Injustice 2 on PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on May 16th, 2017. Check back at NLGO for more news coverage and a full review upon release.
