Ed Boon has done it once again, delivering yet a another look at Injustice 2 via his Twitter page. This time, the trailer highlights some of the women of NetherRealm’s Injustice Universe. Characters such as Poison Ivy (who gets an awesome gameplay debut), Black Canary, and the newly revealed Cheetah and Catwoman shine in the “Here Come the Girls” gameplay trailer. Check it out below:
First of all, each one of them looks fantastic — Ivy’s costume is especially intriguing, as it forms around her nicely. It looks as if she’s wearing finely tailored leaves, but we’ll assume, since she’s a walking human/plant hybrid, they’re all perfectly fine. Most fascinating is her playstyle; she’s as quick and agile, as expected. Plus, it’s fun to see that since her and Swamp Thing’s abilities will mirror one another, enough is being done to set the two nature lovers apart.
Cheetah and Catwoman’s playstyles also parallel one another. However, the former seems to have much more of her feline sensibilities on display as she brawls. It’ll be interesting to see how the two differ, especially in terms of combos and special abilities.
Additionally, the trailer offers another look at Black Canary in action. Unfortunately, there’s nothing especially new on display from her. She still looks awesome, though.
One incredibly quick scene, which flashes at the 35 second mark, shows Catwoman seemingly in charge of some group. Behind her stands Harley and a couple of gorillas, though neither appears to be Grodd. Might she have a leading role in Batman’s Insurgency? We’ll have to wait and see.
The sequel to 2013’s Injustice: Gods Among Us will hit PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on May 16. The roster is quickly filling up. In the comments below, tell us who else you hope to see confirmed.
