NetherRealm Studios have revealed that Robin is the latest addition to the Injustice 2 cast.
Injustice 2 grew bigger today with the addition of Robin. NetherRealm Studios and Ed Boon made the announcement during a livestream where a brand new gameplay trailer was shown off. This version of Robin is Damian Wayne, and appears to have embraced his mother’s League of Assassin’s lineage alongside his father’s. Fighting with a katana, Robin is able to deliver some deadly blows all while utilizing gadgets to confuse and trick his opponents.
Technically, Damian Wayne is a returning character. In Injustice: Gods Among Us, Damian Wayne took over as Nightwing after accidentally causing Dick Grayson’s death. As Nightwing, Damian became a part of Superman’s Regime and became obsessed with capturing his father, Batman. He was arrested at the end of the game. At this point, it is unknown how he escaped jail or why he has switched back to his Robin attire.
Injustice 2 is out May 16 on PS4 and Xbox One.
