New Injustice 2 Fighter Pack Will Include the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

It’s been a while since we saw the TMNT in a proper fighting game, but it looks like that’s all about to change. Over the weekend, WB Games unveiled their latest DLC for Injustice 2, and our heroes in a half shell were included. The trailer for this fighter pack gave us our first look at the turtles, immediately calling back to one of the most popular scenes in the history of this franchise. In true shellraising form, Raphael came out of the darkness wearing his disguise from the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990) movie. A few moments later, Raph took off the coat and his brothers stood by his side.

Say what you will about the voice acting, but I don’t think anyone will take issue with their character design. It looks like this version of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is based more on the comics and the original movies. Considering that Viacom currently owns the rights to several different versions of the TMNT, it’s not entirely surprising to see WB Games being very careful with their depiction of the turtles. Whatever the case may be, it’s definitely nice to see the ninja turtles in a fighting game.

 

The one question that remains is how WB Games will handle the turtles. After all, previous fighter packs have only included three characters each, and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are going to be joined in this DLC by both The Atom and Enchantress. A fighter pack with 6 new characters is very unlikely, so chances are that you’ll only have access to one turtle while your brothers will probably provide assist attacks and special combo moves.

If you don’t already own Injustice 2, we recommend picking up the Ultimate Edition in order to get this fighter pack for free. Alternatively, it’s worth noting that the game will more than likely be on sale at various different retail locations on Black Friday. Fighter Packs typically sell for $19.99. You can expect the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to be added to the roster very soon.

My name is Justin Wren and I love to write about the TMNT! I've been a big Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan since the late 80's. Back then, I would watch the original animated series and play with the Playmates toys all the time. I have been following the boys ever since I was a kid, and I'm very happy to see them back in the limelight after all these years. Needless to say, I'm proud to be a member of the team on this awesome TMNT Fan Site!

    I wonder if they’re going with one turtle and the rest are shaders or you just swap between them during gameplay.
