Ever since the official reveal trailer released for Injustice 2, the forthcoming sequel to NetherRealm Studios’ successful and incredibly well-received fighting title, Injustice: Gods Among Us, fighting fans have been clamoring for any and all information pertaining to the game’s roster of characters. Not too long ago, the DC Comics-themed brawler’s director, Ed Boon, held a couple of polls on Twitter to ask which guest character from Mortal Kombat they would like to see added alongside a non-MK fighter as well, with the developer recently sharing the outcome.
As seen in the results of the two polls below, Injustice 2 fans have made a resounding choice for Sub-Zero and Spawn to join the ranks of the DC fighting game. While the two picks would undoubtedly work well within the confines of the upcoming title, it’s not as if they weren’t up against some interesting competition with the likes of Raiden and Hellboy also being given as choices.
Although Spawn and Sub-Zero are the fan-favorites for Injustice 2‘s guest character slots and could potentially make their way into the game, DC fans will be happy to know that NetherRealm Studios will continue to add a slew of heroes and villains from the comic book publisher’s stable of iconic figures. As a matter of fact, Ed Boon made sure to confirm just that by replying to a fan’s tweet to say “so many more” DC characters are coming.
At this point in time, the character list for Injustice 2 has been somewhat in-line with choices from the first game as familiar faces such as Harley Quinn and Wonder Woman have been confirmed. However, the developers at NetherRealm have thrown a couple of curveballs by putting in more obscure characters like Atrocitus and Blue Beetle. Plus, should one of Ed Boon’s innumerable teases for the game come to fruition, then it’s quite possible that Jason Todd (AKA Red Hood) could come blasting onto the scene as well.
Despite relatively little being known about the overall differences existing between Injustice 2 and its predecessor, NetherRealm Studios gave fans a decent glimpse into how the action has evolved in the sequel by releasing a meaty sample of 15 minutes of extended gameplay for E3 2016. As one would expect, the title is going to offer plenty of variant costumes for the characters and different settings, but perhaps most intriguing is the developer’s addition of the fighter’s the all-new gear and stat upgrade system.
Taking all of this into consideration, it seems as if Injustice 2 is shaping up to be an excellent follow-up to the original. Of course, should NetherRealm add at least one of the 10 characters we want in the game – whether it be Constantine, Beast Boy, or Swamp Thing – there’s a high chance of it becoming the superior entry in the franchise.
