The entire roster has not been revealed yet for the much anticipated sequel to the DC Comics fighting game INJUSTICE: GODS AMONG US. So far the cast of fighters looks fun and diverse with most of your favorite heroes and villains returning for round two. There is speculation now that the superhero fighting game could feature some characters from the WATCHMEN comic series.
Ed Boon, Creator of the MORTAL KOMBAT series and INJUSTICE tweeted a poll asking fans if they would like to see WATCHMEN characters in INJUSTICE 2. This was met with an overwhelming yes of course. Does this mean that they have plans for characters such as Rorschach and The Comedian to make an appearance? I guess it is possible that Ed is teasing fans but I think it is more likely that they plan on tying the WATCHMEN universe to the DC fighting series. The original game centered on an alternate timeline where Superman had lost all sense of right and wrong and took his powers too far. It will be interesting to see if and how the WATCHMEN will be connected to this ongoing storyline. Injustice 2 will be available for PS4 and Xbox one in 2017.
Here’s the offical trailer for INJUSTICE 2:
