Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has released a new trailer for “Injustice 2” which reveals the addition of Harley Quinn and Deadshot to the the growing roster of the upcoming DC Comics fighting game.
Both Harley Quinn and Deadshot were heavily featured in the film “Suicide Squad” where they were played by Margot Robbie and Will Smith, respectively. The reveal of both characters joining “Injustice 2” seems like a way to generate hype for the game, while the “Suicide Squad” movie is still in theaters.
For some, the inclusion of Harley Quinn in “Injustice 2” seems like a no-brainer considering that she was already part of the original roster of 2013’s “Injustice: Gods Among Us.” Based on the newly released trailer, Harley’s combos and overall fighting style has been expanded with the addition of her ability to use her pet hyenas. Interestingly, Warner Bros. actually released a teaser photo of one of Harley’s hyenas a day before the official reveal.
Additionally, the trailer also gave fans a look at a few of her costumes in the game. They include a variation of her classic jester outfit, as well as her costume from the “Suicide Squad” film, as pointed out by VG24/7.
As for Deadshot, this will be his debut in the game series, as pointed out by GameSpot. However, the character did make an appearance in the mobile version of “Injustice: Gods Among Us” as part of the marketing of “Suicide Squad.”
Deadshot’s moves primarily focus on the use of guns which he is well-known for in the comics. “Injustice 2” has also included his signature wrist-mounted guns. His fighting style is kind of similar to Deathstroke’s, but Deadshot uses a knife instead of a sword for close quarters combat.
Other DC Comics characters that are confirmed to be part of the “Injustice 2” roster include Wonder Woman, Blue Beetle, Batman, Superman, Supergirl, Aquaman, Atrocious and Gorilla Grodd. “Injustice 2” will be released sometime in 2017 for the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One.
