It's time for one of the most highly anticipated Watchtower streams we've ever hosted! Today we get to see two of the most legendary DC Comics villains clash as the team at NetherRealm walks us through how to fight using Darkseid and Joker. Who knows, we might even be in for a few surprises! Hang out and watch the stream with us right here at 3PM Central:
Though we've seen Darkseid and Joker gameplay, this will be the first time we've seen them clash with each other, or with anyone in an unscripted manner for that matter. As the 28th and 29th characters revealed, Joker and Darkseid represent the final characters in the core Injustice 2 roster. Personally, we can't wait to see more Darkseid footage. The way he fights and stands with his hands behind his back is incredibly intimidating, and really cool. He looks like a pissed off god.
As for Joker, we're hoping that we'll get to see more of his high-level gear. Joker's look and design has been a topic of hot debate within the Injustice and DC Comics community. You can see here where we gathered together footage of Joker in various costumes, and while some of his gear looks great, a lot of is questionable. We'd love to see a few gear sets and color variations that blow our minds.
We're also hoping, probably in vain, that we might get to see one of our newly revealed DLC characters in action. We think this is a vain hope because NetherRealm stated in a press release that Starfire, Red Hood, and Sub-Zero are still in development, and none of them are going to be available when Injustice 2 launches on May 16. If they won't be available at launch, there doesn't seem to be any reason for NetherRealm to get us hyped by showing off gameplay footage prematurely.
NetherRealm isn't done yet! We still have six DLC characters who have yet to be revealed. At the end of the last DLC trailer, we saw a cast of silhouettes that may or may not belong to the remaining DLC characters, and we attempt to identify them all right here.
