Watch the Black Manta Gameplay Trailer for @InjusticeGame 2

Before the Grand Finals of the Hometown Heroes Finale from yesterday came to pass, Netherrealm Studios delivered on their promise to unveil a gameplay trailer for the first of three characters featured in their second Fighter Pack – the super-alien, Black Manta.

This could quite possibly be the best trailer they have produced yet, for a multitude of reasons. The character’s appearance, the sound effects from when he’s attacked or delivering the offense, his dialogue, and perhaps the most amazing win sequence we’ve seen thus far. Also, fans of Injustice 1 may experience waves of nostalgia over Black Manta’s laser attacks, as they appear to have taken a page from a previous DLC character named General Zod whilst introducing new twists.

Slightly off-topic, but halfway through the video we’ve noticed Swamp Thing actually performing an air dash. Of course, this might be an ability tied to the Gear system…or it could be a buff that the character will eventually receive…stay tuned!

Black Manta will join the Injustice 2 roster this September. Should you own the Ultimate Edition of Injustice 2, you’ll receive early access to the character when he comes out. If not, you’ll be required to wait a week before gaining the opportunity to purchase him.

The other two characters from Fighter Pack 2 have been confirmed to be Hellboy and Raiden. See this article for more information.

Injustice 2 is currently available for the Playstation 4 and Xbox One platforms. It is also one of the titles to be blessed with the 4K upgrade once the Xbox One X launches on November 7th. Plans for a PC release have yet to be disclosed.
