Injustice 2 has certainly surprised people with its DLC characters. Some of them have been fan requests, like Red Hood or Starfire. Others have been deeper dives into the Mortal Kombat universe, like Sub-Zero and Raiden. And then, there were the big surprises, first came Hellboy, and then, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. How this happened, we don’t know, but it’s pretty special, and since their announcement, everyone wants to be a Turtle. And now, via Fighter Pack 3 or the Injustice 2: Ultimate Edition, you can be.
To be clear, the Turtles are technically one unit, however, you can choose which of the four Turtles you can play as when you start the match. Each one uses their own weapons in their own fighting style, just like the comics, TV shows, and movies portray them. But then, they’ll summon their brothers for special combo attacks, as well as unite for their ultimate attack, Shell Shock.
Seeing the TMNT in action is really quite cool, and you’ll no doubt find a Turtle to match you personal play style, so we recommend trying them all out. If you haven’t gotten Fighter Pack 3 in full, you’re missing out, as other characters in the pack include The Atom (Ryan Choi), and Enchantress.
Plus, if you get the Ultimate Edition, you’ll get every single DLC character released, which includes all the ones named above as well as Aquaman villain Black Manta.
When NetherRealm Studios announced this game, they promised that they were going to go deep into the lore of DC Comics to flesh out the roster, but little did we know that they would go far beyond that. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are currently the final DLC characters that will be in the title. But, given the popularity of the game, it’s possible more could follow.
