Warner Bros. Interactive has done a nice job of consistently updating Injustice 2 with new brand-new characters. Not long ago, they added Red Hood, Sub-Zero, and the OP Starfire. Now, they’re planning to add 3 more characters to the fight. From their silhouettes you might’ve already guessed Black Manta and Raiden, but you’d have to have the greensight to be have divined that none other than Hellboy would be part of Injustice 2, this September!
While completely unexpected, Hellboy is a welcome addition to the fighting game franchise. He’s been a beloved character in Dark Horse Comics, for some time now, even before the two Ron Pearlman movies. With his amusing humor and, no doubt, hard-hitting moveset, it’ll be no surprise if he’s one of the more frequently used new characters.
Then again, Raiden (Mortal Kombat) has been a fighting game mainstay for some time now, and from how he looks in the trailer, it doesn’t look like that will be changing anytime soon. As for Black Manta, it’ll be interesting to see how his moveset is. I’m sure it’ll involve a LOT of rockets, like in the trailer.
Suffice to say, these are three very exciting additions to an already addicting game. I can’t wait to see what their supers look like! Perhaps, you’ll see it on UGF sometime? Who knows? In any case, gamers who purchased the Injustice 2 Ultimate Edition, the Injustice 2 Ultimate Pack, or the Injustice 2 Fighter Pack #2 will have early access to the characters before they’re available for individual purchase on September 12, 2017!
