4/1: NetherRealm is NOT adding the Wonder Twins to Injustice 2

It’s April 1st, which means you shouldn’t believe everything anything you read on the Internet today. For example, I think it is extremely unlikely that NetherRealm Studios will add the Wonder Twins, Zan and Jayna, to Injustice 2.

The dual addition to Injustice 2’s character roster was teased earlier today on Twitter by Ed Boon, NetherRealm’s Creative Director. Boon is a lover of all things purple (Mortal Kombat‘s Rain is an homage to Prince), but I think this is a step too far:

The Wonder Twins were first introduced to audiences in 1977 as part of DC’s Super Friends cartoon. They were later given an “extreme” makeover (because, of course they were) and added to the DC Comics Universe in 1996.

I’m reasonably sure that Boon is joking about including the Wonder Twins in Injustice 2, but I could also see the developer using this prank to gauge interest in adding the characters to the game later as downloadable content.
