Developer NetherRealm has released a new Injustice 2 trailer showcasing a few of the female characters.
In the trailer Catwoman and Cheetah are shown for the first time. Poison Ivy was shown earlier as part of the story, but this is the only time she has been shown as a playable character.
Here are Poison Ivy and Catwoman’s official description via the Injustice website. Cheetah will be added when the website is updated.
Dr. Pamela Isley was once an innovative, radical botanical biochemist with a singular goal: make the world safe for plant life to flourish. She joins the Society to further their common interest in bringing mankind to its knees, but at heart, Ivy’s desire is to ensure that in any new world order, flora dominates fauna.
Consistently walking the line between hero and villain, Selina Kyle’s pilfering past as Catwoman prevents Batman from ever placing his full trust in her. As the ashes of the Regime give rise to the sinister Society, the Caped Crusader must once again speculate where this thieving feline’s loyalties lie.
When archaeologist Barbara Ann Minerva betrayed Wonder Woman to claim the powers of a god, she was unaware that she would be cursed to live a life transformed as the Cheetah. She now uses her primal powers to take revenge against Wonder Woman, drawing her out of hiding in hopes of bringing about her doom.
On similar note, Swamp Thing was revealed yesterday. The gameplay trailer shows off his many marsh based abilities.
Injustice 2 will launch May 27th on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
