After being leaked by retailers yesterday, Injustice 2 has been officially announced by Warner Bros. Interactive. As seen in the trailer above, fan favorite superheros are slugging it out (for reasons yet to be announced) with the addition of character unique armor. The armor gives heroes advantages over one another, most notably allowing flash to stand toe-to-toe with the Man of Steel.
There hasn’t been much more information about the game other than the trailer that’s been released, though being titled Injustice 2 might be grounds enough to wonder if it’s set in the same arc as the first game, Injustice: Gods Among Us. The first game follows the story of Superman becoming the supreme leader of Earth (and beyond) after Lois Lane and her unborn baby were killed by the Joker. The story arc is a dark one where Superman goes as far as to kill other superheros if they opposed him, making for a truly great setting to have have everyone’s favorite heroes beating each other senseless.
Though we don’t know much about the story or the conflicts in it, with any luck we will hear more from Warner Bros. Interactive in the coming weeks, provided a leak doesn’t force them to give out information before they plan to…again.
