WB and NetherRealm have just released another promotional trailer for next year’s Injustice 2 containing a pair of character reveals which Batman fans will likely be pleased by. Returning from the first Injustice will be Joker’s iconic right-hand girl Harley Quinn, and the well-armed assassin Deadshot will make his first playable appearance in the series as well.
It seems almost certain that this announcement has been timed to come soon after Suicide Squad hit theaters, since the film marks the first big-screen appearances of both characters. Quinn’s redesign in particular feels like a mixture of Margot Robbie’s portrayal and elements from Rocksteady’s Arkham series. Her moves will include bats, mallets, guns, dynamite, and even killer hyenas.
Deadshot appears to have a mix of hard-hitting melee attacks and projectiles from his wrist-mounted guns, giving a similar vibe to fellow assassin Deathstroke from the original game. The trailer also showcases at the 30-second mark what looks to be some examples of the sequel’s new Gear System, displaying a few different outfits for Quinn that can also modify how she plays.
Injustice 2 is schedule to hit PlayStation 4 and Xbox One some time in 2017, along with a mobile version for Android and iOS.
