As a member of DC’s “Trinity,” one of the most popular characters from the first Injustice game, and the only universally-praised part of Batman V Superman, it’s not exactly surprising that Wonder Woman will return as a playable character in the sequel.
During their Comic-Con panel last night, NetherRealm also announced that the Blue Beetle (AKA mild-mannered teenager Jaime Reyes) will also appear in Injustice 2. A trailer showcasing both fighters has been embedded above.
Personally, I’m hoping that Conan O’Brien can finally make his Injustice debut in the sequel. He even pulled a Batman earlier this week by using his vast wealth and personal manservant to help him construct an impressive new superhero costume.
NetherRealm’s Ed Boon also revealed during the panel that Supergirl will play an important role in Injustice 2’s story. And for multiplayer fans, Injustice 2 will include a Tournament Mode and make use of the GGPO engine for its netcode.
Injustice 2 will be released for the PS4 and Xbox One sometime in 2017.
