As promised, NetherRealm has confirmed that Black Canary is the next confirmed character for the Injustice 2. Along with the announcement, IGN has released the gameplay trailer for the character.
Developed by NetherRealm Studios, Injustice 2 is the latest offering of console games inspired by DC Comics characters. This sequel to the critically acclaimed Injustice: Gods Among Us promises to revolutionize the fighting game experience through unique game mechanics and its new armor system which promises to allow players to customize each character to their individual play style. Every battle defines you in this highly anticipated game where players will be able to personalize the large roster of iconic DC characters, both heroes and villains, with powerful gear earned as you progress through the game.
In the gameplay trailer for Black Canary, fans are given more than a glimpse of this iconic heroine as she pummels her foes with her superior martial arts skills as well as her supersonic Canary Cry. Check it out below:
Black Canary joins the list of confirmed playable characters so far which includes Batman, Blue Beetle, Flash, Harley Quinn, Superman, Supergirl, Wonder Woman, Deadshot, Gorilla Grodd, Aquaman, and Atrocitus. Given that NetherRealm’s Ed Boon has stated that the game will feature more obscure characters, you can expect characters you may not even have heard of or maybe even fan favorites who have yet to be adapted outside of the comic books.
Along with this reveal, NetherRealm has also updated the biography on their website for four of the confirmed characters: Bane, Brainiac, Poison Ivy, Robin (Damian Wayne). While it has yet to be confirmed if these characters will be playable or not, you can expect that they will feature in the storyline that will unfold in this sequel given their appearance in the recently released story trailer. Check out the bios below:
