In case you missed it, NetherRealm Studios recently unveiled Firestorm as the latest addition to Injustice 2‘s roster of playable characters in the latest episode of UpUpDownDown. Yesterday, the developer went a step further and unveiled an “Introduction Trailer” for the nuclear-powered superhero.
The trailer features a good look at Firestorm’s heavy use of projectiles, though the character is also able to augment his punches and kicks with fiery melee attacks.
Firestorm was introduced in the DC Comics Universe as the result of a nuclear accident in 1978. The accident fused together the minds of physicist Martin Stein and lab assistant Ronnie Raymond, forcing them to live together in a single body controlled by the “Firestorm Matrix.” The character’s Injustice 2 appearance will be based on a 2004 reboot of the character that paired Stein with the teenage Jason Rusch.
According to the game’s official website, NetherRealm will unveil Injustice 2’s next playable character a week from today on March 23.
Injustice 2 will be released for the PS4 and Xbox One on May 16.
