NetherRealm Studios, the team behind the Mortal Kombat and Injustice fighting games have recently revealed the characters that will be joining Injustice 2’s roster in the next DLC pack. The Atom and Enchantress are welcomed additions, but no one was prepared for the pizza-devouring radical turtles from New York’s sewers!
That’s right – the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are coming to Injustice 2! Why? We’re not sure, but it’s totally awesome and we need it now. The Fighter Pack 3 DLC will be available later this month, so you’ll be able to play as the ninja turtles we’ve all grown up with soon enough.
Thankfully though, as we’re sure we’re speaking for most fans of the turtles, NetherRealm has gone with a mixture of their classic cartoon look with a touch of Injustice 2‘s semi-realistic human models, avoiding their strange CGI look from the recent Michael Bay movies.
The turtles will function as one character, but depending on your character loadout you’ll be able to play as all four different turtles. The turtles share a bunch of normal and special moves, but each one of them has two distinct moves and character traits.
As you can expect, Leonard is the all-around fighter of the four. He fights mid-range with his trusty katanas, and he can even call in the other three turtles for assist attacks. Donatello focuses on long-range control thanks to his iconic bō staff, and he even gets little gadgets for extra utility. Raphael is the all-in fighter with close range heavy hitting attacks and nasty counter attacks. Mikey, true to his cool dude nature, sports a number of wacky and unpredictable moves, including the ability to eat pizza to regain lost health. Yum!
We’re not sure if this is the start of crazy new guest fighters, but we’re excited to see the turtles in a modern day fighting game!
