NetherRealm Studios has released another trailer from its highly-anticipated game Injustice 2. This time around, the new trailer highlights Cheetah, a new character in the franchise.
Cheetah, who has seen many incarnations over the years, is a mainstay in Wonder Woman’s rogues’ gallery and made her debut in 1943. As seen in the trailer below, the villain has an animalistic play style, which one should expect, and sees her using her claws and speed to great effect.
Cheetah had already been confirmed playable by previous trailers, but this is the character’s first official showcase.
Injustice 2 recently revealed that it will have a micro-transaction system with a currency called Source Crystals.
NetherRealm Studios has confirmed that the system will be strictly for cosmetic purposes and not any game changing features. “We value our community and want to be clear: you cannot ‘pay to win’ with Injustice 2. Source Crystals can only be used to purchase cosmetic adjustments to your fighters, Premiere character Skins with no gameplay advantage, and various shaders for character costumes.”
NetherRealm also detailed its Transform Gear system that utilizes Source Crystals. “Transform Gear allows you to apply the visuals of one piece of Gear to another piece. For example, if you have a piece of Gear with your perfect stat loadout but it doesn’t have your perfect look, you can apply the visuals from one of your other pieces of Gear to it. After using Transform Gear, your Gear piece will have your preferred stats matched with your preferred visuals.”
Characters currently confirmed are Firestorm, Doctor Fate, Swamp Thing, Cyborg, Batman, Blue Beetle, The Flash, Harley Quinn, Superman, Supergirl, Wonder Woman, Deadshot, Gorilla Grodd, Aquaman, Robin, Cheetah, Brainiac, Bane, Poison Ivy, Catwoman, Black Canary, and Atrocitus.
Injustice 2 is scheduled for release on May 16, 2016. The story follows the events of the first game as Batman and his allies attempt to piece the world back together after the High Councilor, a manipulated Superman, brought destruction to the world. As Batman attempts to rebuild, a new threat is on the horizon threatening the Earth once again.
