You don’t become a titan of industry like DC without understanding basic marketing and timing. Warner Brothers, Neatherrealm, and DC are working on a sequel to their Mortal Kombat-esque fighting game Injustice: Gods Among Us. Two characters were just confirmed for this sequel, tying in with the launch of the Suicide Squad film. First up, Harley Quinn returns with even more style and flare.
Her popularity received a major resurgence following Margot Robbie’s live action portrayal of her in the film. She’ll be returning with her signature hammer, swinging into battle!
Deadshot, the perfect sniper will also be joining the fray. This announcement is following Will Smith’s portrayal of his character in the Suicide Squad film as well.
Previous new character announcements include Supergirl, Blue Beetle, and Gorilla Grodd. If you consider yourself a fan of DC franchises, you’ll be pleased to see some of the juggernauts from the likes of Suicide Squad and Young Justice.
Neatherrealm appears to be pulling out all of the stops and creating a game with a similar structure to their critically acclaimed Mortal Kombat X which managed to put the series back in the competitive eye.
Injustice 2 is set to launch sometime in 2017. Until then, enjoy this trailer, and get ready to kick butt as Deadshot and Harley Quinn!
