A few months ago, Warner Bros. Interactive revealed that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles would be coming to their game Injustice 2. At the time, fans were very excited about the prospect of fighting with their favorite heroes in a half shell. Although there wasn’t a definitive release date provided at the time, we now know that they intend to provide the TMNT fighter pack on February 13th, 2018.
Warner Bros. released a new trailer to promote the DLC featuring actual footage of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fighting in Injustice 2. In the trailer below, we finally get to see the turtles in action and hear some of their funny quips. All four characters have some pretty interesting attacks and they work together to accomplish some very fun finishing moves. Unlike some of the more recent iterations of our half-shelled heroes, this version of the TMNT appears to be heavily based on the original animated series and Mirage comics.
When fans first discovered that Warner Bros. was adding the TMNT to Injustice 2, they were concerned that this fighter pack would not allow them to control all four turtles. As you can see in the trailer above, it looks like Raphael, Donatello, Leonardo and Michelangelo all have separate attacks they can perform. This trailer also reveals a few references to the classic arcade game Turtles in Time. In addition to the pizza and the shell-shocked attack, sharp-eyed shellheads will also note the “Big Apple” and “3 AM” stickers on Mikey’s skateboard.
Needless to say, it looks like this could be a really fun fighter pack for Injustice 2. I’m sure we’d all like to see a proper TMNT fighting game hit the market once again, but this is definitely a nice concession in lieu of that. If you haven’t already purchased the game, it is currently available for under $40 on Amazon. The TMNT DLC will be available on February 13th for only $9.99.
