New Injustice 2 Trailer Shows Several New Characters


It seems like Braniac has some diabolical plans in this trailer for Injustice 2

In a lot of fighting games, the story isn’t particularly important. But in the first Injustice game, the story was very important. It was about Superman finally being turned into a violent vigilante who ruled the Earth with an iron Kryptonian fist. It was more about heroes vs. heroes, which was a much more novel concept in 2013, as opposed to the last year where it was everywhere. For Injustice 2, it seems they are going a more traditional villain route for the main bad guy, as it seems that whatever is going on, Braniac is the one behind it all.

Evil Superman is still very much around though, and there are definitely the same themes of people who would normally be allies fighting each other in Injustice 2. Wonder Woman against Supergirl, Batman vs. Robin?!? Check a story synopsis and the newly released story trailer below:

"Injustice 2 picks up where Injustice: Gods Among Us left off. Though Batman has won the battle with Superman, he’s still facing threats on all sides. Former members of Superman’s regime continue to elude justice. And a shadowy new group, The Society, threatens chaos across the globe.With many of his allies either victims of, or collaborators with, Superman’s failed regime, Batman faces this dangerous world short of help. That’s why he’s brought together a new squad of Super Heroes. When Earth is invaded and threatened with destruction, Batman and his new team are thrust into action!"

Darkseid also has been confirmed as a pre-order bonus for both retail and physical. Whether or not any stores will have exclusive characters, we don’t know yet (hopefully not though). Injustice 2 is due out May 16th on PS4, Xbox One, iOS and Android.
