Injustice 2 heats up Comic-Con 2017 with Starfire’s debut trailer

Injustice 2 chilled out earlier this month with the addition of Sub-Zero to the game’s character roster, but we’re looking ahead to a heatwave as NetherRealm Studios will release Starfire as the game’s next downloadable character in August.

In addition to confirming Starfire’s launch month, NetherRealm also released a new trailer for the alien princess during this weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con. Watch as she pounds the DC Universe with deadly Energy Beams to, as well as Celestial Projectiles, and an out-of-this-world “Supernova” Super Move.

Starfire is slated to be the final addition to Injustice 2 as part of Fighter Pack 1, which also includes Red Hood and Sub-Zero. A new series of downloadable characters that comprise Fighter Pack 2 will be available beginning this Fall.

The 1-2 punch of Tekken 7 and Injustice 2 sit atop the best-selling games list for June 2017

Fighting game fans have proven, once again, that the genre is alive and well. According to the NPD Group’s recounting of the best-selling games in June, Tekken 7 (#1) and Injustice 2 (#2) took the top two spots. Nintendo’s bizarro take on the genre, Arms, also made a strong debut in the #5 spot.

Speaking of the Switch, Nintendo’s newest console continued to push the game industry to new heights in June, as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (#6) and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (#7) stayed in the top ten.

Speaking to GamesIndustry.biz, NPD Analyst Mat Piscatella said: “The Nintendo Switch has been the catalyst for year-to-date growth. Year-to-date, hardware spending has grown 19% versus 2016 to $1.4 billion.”

However, older titles also performed well in June, including Grand Theft Auto V (#3), Overwatch (#9), and Minecraft (#17). 2015’s Call of Duty: Black Ops III (#12) even managed to outsell 2016’s Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare (#15).

A complete look at the Top 20 for June 2017 can be found after the break. (more…)

Say hello to Red Hood in a trailer for Injustice 2’s first downloadable character

Injustice 2 is barely two weeks old, and NetherRealm Studios is already planning to release the game’s first downloadable character next month. DC Comics fans may have voted to kill off Jason Todd’s Robin in the 80s, but the character has gained a second life as Red Hood, and he’ll join the Injustice 2 cast in June:

Jason Todd once served as Batman’s second protégé “Robin” before being brutally murdered by The Joker. Years later, the powerful healing waters of the Lazarus Pit brought Jason Todd back to life. However the power of the Pit comes at a cost, and a change takes hold in Jason. He now uses the mantle of the Red Hood to wage a lethal war on crime.

Red Hood’s “Introducing” trailer showcases his dual handguns, and Mortal Kombat X fans should instantly notice his similarity to Erron Black. But like all former Robins, Red Hood looks slightly more acrobatic than that old gunslinger ever was.

NetherRealm is offering several options to add Red Hood to Injustice 2. The violent vigilante will be a free download for those who purchased the Ultimate Edition or the Digital Deluxe Edition, but he’s also set to be included in the Fighter Pack #1 expansion alongside Starfire and Sub-Zero.
