Now here’s a character I absolutely did not see coming. The second major DLC pack for Injustice 2 is on the way, and it features Black Manta, Raiden from Mortal Kombat and Hellboy… from Hellboy.
There’s a minute long trailer that teases gamers with the revelation of these characters joining the Injustice 2 universe, and you can check it out below.
The trailer starts with Red Hood on the ground, followed by Sub-Zero getting zapped like a bug on a light during a summer time night. We then get to see Raiden step into the picture, who attempts to zap Black Mantis. The Mantis fires off a salvo at Raiden but Hellboy manages to get a hold of one of the rockets and uses it to light his cigar. It’s brilliant.
I honestly did not expect to see Hellboy join the cast of characters in the game, but he’s a welcome addition no doubt.
Some of the fans on the YouTube comment section weren’t all that thrilled about the addition of Raiden because they want to keep the Mortal Kombat characters in Mortal Kombat, and the DC characters in DC.
I certainly would have replaced Raiden with Spawn, because that would have been a pretty awesome mix-up to have Hellboy going head-to-head with Spawn.
Anyway, Injustice 2 kind of fizzled out after having a strong release. It had a moderate showing at this year’s EVO, but a lot of the hype was buried under the news about Street Fighter V airing on ESPN.
The trailer mistakenly says that the characters will be revealed via live-stream on May 27th, but that day is long gone. I imagine the gameplay for the characters will arrive sometime in late summer, early fall… maybe?
The Fighter Pack 2 will be available for anyone who purchased the season pass, otherwise you’ll have to pay separately to add Black Mantis, Raiden and Hellboy to your game.
