A massive Injustice 2 leak has happened, not only confirming The Joker, but showing off some gameplay as well. Considering that neither WB Games nor NetherRealms shared the video, the two companies are likely very angry over it. If it means anything, the character model looks good, but the person playing as Joker doesn’t show his moves much.
Considering how fast the video spread, it’s hard to pinpoint where it came from and who should get the credit. Also, a number of the videos have been taken down for obvious reasons, though some can still be found. Players interested in seeing The Joker in action can watch this video by Image Knight, though it’s lacking.
Everyone Knows The Punchline
Prior to the video, fans already assumed that Joker would be in Injustice 2 due to an accurate roster leak. It guessed a number of characters fans didn’t expect, like Swamp Thing and Cheetah, so it became a trusted source. The fact that the Clown Prince of Crime is actually in the game shows that the leak was 100% correct.
Joker’s inclusion was also confirmed when the game’s achievements were revealed, rewarding players for beating him with Batman and Harley. After that, fans essentially waited for a gameplay video to come out and show off his moves and finisher. In the end, a video did come out, but not the one anyone thought it would be or wanted.
The Joke’s On Everyone
Not every leak is a good one and this Injustice 2 video proves that, by showing a terrible video of Joker and Flash. Most of the match has the Scarlet Speedster beating up the Batman foe with ease, which is a poor re-introduction. NetherRealms and WB Games will eventually release an official video featuring the character, something that fans will appreciate. The next character reveal will be on April 28 and it’s definitely going to be The Joker.
It’ll be interesting to see how Joker is brought back, since everyone knows he died at the start of Injustice. A straight up resurrection will be interesting, since this is a comic book property, so anything is possible. Scarecrow is also in the game and he could use his fear toxin on Batman and Harley during story mode.
Injustice 2 is slated for a May 16 release and will be coming to the PS4 and Xbox One. Darkseid is a pre-order bonus, with a number of editions that can be bought. The first issue of the tie-in comic comes to stands next week, though it’s digitally available already.
