We got a sneak peek of the old and the new today when the official Injustice: Gods Among Us YouTube channel gave us a new Injustice 2 trailer. The trailer showed off two of the heroes in the game’s roster, Princess Diana of Themyscira (also known as Wonder Woman) and Jaime Reyes, otherwise known as the Blue Beetle.
We get a good minute and thirty seconds of both superheroes kicking butt and taking names, fighting against Superman, Batman, Gorilla Grod, and even each other, while going through a number of costume changes at the same time.
Alien technology being pitted against Amazonian strength seems to lend a pretty good match between the pair as well, who taunt one another throughout their fight in the second half of the Injustice 2 trailer trailer.
Wonder Woman was a member of the previous Injustice fighter roster, but Blue Beetle was absent from that game.
The Injustice 2 trailer also gives us the ability to see a number of attacks, backed up by the trademark over-the-top violence that NetherRealm Studios is known for. This includes Wonder Woman tying up her opponents with her Lasso of Truth, throwing her sword and shield at them as they lie on the ground (and then clobbering them with her feet), or Blue Beetle blasting his enemies with the cannons on his suit.
Other things include at least one stage attack, where Blue Beetle tosses Wonder Woman through a tube in Atlantis and causes her to get thrown around the pipes (running into at least one fan) before coming out the other side of the stage.
From what we can see in the dialogue, it also seems that once again the various heroes will be split into sides, fighting each other. Wonder Woman mentions Batman “sending a child to fight her”, but whatever is causing them to fight again remains to be seen. It may be related to Regime Superman, who was supposedly killed in the previous game, but we’ll just have to wait until whenever the game releases to know.
