NetherRealm Studios announced the next three fighters coming to Injustice 2 and while there's another DC character and Mortal Kombat character joining the fray, the biggest surprise is the addition of demon fighter and supernatural investigator, Hellboy.
As part of the upcoming Fighter Pack 2, Black Manta, nemesis of Aquaman, and Raiden from Mortal Kombat were both announced. However, Hellboy—from the Dark Horse Comics created by Mike Mignola—is the real coup for NetherRealm Studios.
The announcement trailers introduces Hellboy using one of Black Manta's missiles to light a cigarette (trading in Hellboy's usual cigars) and saying that things have just gotten more interesting. We'll say.
No word yet on when the Fighter Pack 2 will come out, but Black Manta will be previewed by NetherRealm on its Twitch Channel this Sunday, August 27.
The previous Fighter Pack introduced Red Hood, Starfire, and Sub-Zero to Injustice 2, with a total of nine post-release DLC characters as part of the Ultimate Edition of Injustice 2.
Our review called Injustice 2 as a "love letter to the DC Universe" completely eclipsing the first Injustice game with the improved roster, character customization, and story mode.
