During the Injustice 2 livestream today, NetherRealm Studios officially announced the Joker as a playable fighter. You can watch his gameplay trailer above, which sees him fighting Robin, Superman, and Green Lantern. Beginning at 1:09, you can see his Super Move in action.
Here’s his description:
Though killed by Superman, the Joker continues to haunt the lives of all those touched by his madness. By destroying Metropolis, he set the events in motion which made enemies of Superman and Batman. If he were alive to see the chaos he’d created, he would surely be smiling.
NetherRealm also brought out a gameplay trailer for Darkseid, who is available as a pre-order bonus character. Here’s his description:
A being of pure hate incarnate, the lord of Apokolips Darkseid demands the total subjugation of all existence. His merciless obsession has left a wake of suffering and obliteration as he seeks the Anti-Life Equation. With his invincible body, limitless strength, army of Parademons, and the annihilating power of his Omega Beams make him not only a threat to this world, but to every world within reach.
There’s still nine characters left to be announced, but it’s likely they’ll be the post-launch DLC.
Injustice 2 releases on May 16 in North America and May 19 in Europe for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
