Based on the hit DC Comics graphic novel series of the same name, Injustice: Gods Among Us was released on consoles and smartphones to critical acclaim back in 2013. It was lauded by critics and fans alike for its intense story mode, gameplay mechanics and the considerably large playable roster of popular DC characters including Batman, Superman, Flash, Green Arrow, Green Lantern, Joker, Nightwing, Harley Quinn, Killer Frost, Wonder Woman, among others. Now, NetherRealm Studios, the development team behind the popular game has announced that the title will receive a sequel named Injustice 2 which will be released in 2017.
The trailer shows off a few new characters and suits including Supergirl and what appears to be the prototype Batman suit from Batman Beyond. It also showcases several other major DC characters engaging in ruthless combat including Batman, Superman, Flash and Aquaman.
The description of the game available on Injustice 2's official website is as follows:
