As fans wait for the release date of Starfire, it looks like the online Xbox Store has spoiled the fourth DLC character for Injustice 2. It seems like we will be getting Aquaman villain Black Manta as the next DLC fighter, which should please a lot of fans, though many felt he should have been in the base game. Still, it’s good that we’re getting the character, though no release date or window was shown with the accidental leak.
Someone from Reddit was able to take a screenshot of the leak, which specifically says “Play as Black Manta in Injustice 2,” so his presence is pretty much confirmed. Admittedly, his silhouette was pretty obvious when the DLC characters of the game were shown, but this solidifies what many were hoping to see. The character currently appears as a random environmental attack in the Atlantis stage, so it will be good to play as the fan favorite character.
Currently, the Injustice 2 DLC characters include Red Hood and Sub-Zero, with Starfire coming out sooner rather than later. All of the DLC characters can be bought via the “Ultimate Edition Upgrade” from the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live. Those that pre-ordered the Ultimate Edition of the game will have access to the characters as soon as they come out.
Injustice 2 is one of the best fighting games out right now, with a compelling story mode and a ridiculously addictive multiverse mode that makes the title completely replayable. The loot and additional abilities also make the game a bit of a grind ala Overwatch, though fans that love the game won’t be complaining much. With a ton of high scores and more DLC coming, it’s easily the best fighting game of 2017, outdoing its predecessor in every single-way and giving comic book fans plenty of fan service.
