NetherRealm Studios has confirmed a trio of ladies who’ll be battling for your heart in Injustice 2.
After last week’s Black Canary reveal brought a fan-favorite female superhero into Injustice 2. NetherRealm has revealed three more new female fighters for Injustice 2. Catwoman, Cheetah, and Poison Ivy join the cast with each bringing their own set of skills to the table. Their inclusion brings the total amount of characters up to twenty.
Poison Ivy was first teased a few weeks back alongside Bane and Robin. At this point, Bane is the only character waiting to be confirmed. Catwoman returns from Injustice: Gods Among Us, and, based on what she says to Batman in the trailer, appears to have tried to turn over a new leaf between the events of both games. Cheetah, a Wonder Woman villain, is a brand new addition, and looks to combine speed and animal instincts to create a unique fighting style.
With twenty confirmed characters, it’ll be interesting to see how many more are in the pipeline. At launch, Injustice: Gods Among Us had 24 playable characters. We’ll likely get some more announcements as we march towards Injustice 2’s May 16 release on PS4 and Xbox One.
