After the announcement trailer and early details on DC Comics/Warner Bros./NetherRealm Studios’ Injustice 2, we now have our first look at actual gameplay for the superheroic brawler video game. While some of the animation still looks a little rough, which could be due to IGN’s clip rather than the game itself, the level of customization of superheroes and supervillains alike looks next-level.
Also on display here are quite a few more characters than we saw in earlier videos. In addition to Superman, Batman, Aquaman, and Supergirl, who were all glimpsed in the first video, we now see Gorilla Grodd, Black Manta, Atrocitus, and even Dex-Starr! That last one might cause a few neophytes to scratch their heads in confusion, but those of you familiar with the DC Comics character should get a kick out of seeing him in action.
Check out the gameplay trailer for DC Comics/Warner Bros./NetherRealm Studios’ Injustice 2 below:

We also have an early look at the new episodic game Batman – The Telltale Series ahead of its debut this summer. From Telltale:
The episodic game series will premiere digitally on home consoles, PC/Mac, and mobile devices, and will be shown to guests attending the annual E3 Gaming Expo this coming week in Los Angeles. The series will also be available on game consoles as a special ‘Season Pass Disc’ which will be available at retailers across North America, Latin America, and Europe later this summer, granting access to the five episode season as it becomes available for download.
“We’ve been hard at work at Telltale creating an all-new iteration of the iconic Batman story that puts players in the suit of billionaire Bruce Wayne, just as much as it will put them behind the mask, deciding how to carefully navigate a complex drama, rich with action, crime, corruption, and villainy lurking around every corner of Gotham City,” said Kevin Bruner, Co-Founder and CEO of Telltale Games. “The complex life and fractured psyche of Bruce Wayne has lent itself to becoming a bold evolution of the signature ‘Telltale’ role-playing experience, and we couldn’t be more excited as we prepare to debut the series to players across the world this summer.”
Rendered to look like a living, breathing comic book, Telltale’s vision of Batman will feature an award-winning cast of talent, including Troy Baker in the role of Bruce Wayne,Travis Willingham as Harvey Dent,Erin Yvette as Vicki Vale, Enn Reitel as Alfred Pennyworth, Murphy Guyer as Lieutenant James Gordon, Richard McGonagle as Carmine Falcone, and Laura Bailey as Selina Kyle. Additional cast and characters will be revealed as the season progresses.
