Warner Brothers/Netherrealm Studios released the trailer to the sequel to it’s groundbreaking DC fighter Injustice: The Gods Among Us. Check it out above then click after the jump for more observations.

According to Netherrealm, and as shown in the trailer, players will be able to earn and equip gear that customizes their abilities and appearances. This new mechanic will debut alongside many returning mechanics from theprevious game, particularly the stage transitions. While details are scarce on the storyline, it seems that the game will follow up on the events of the original game with Batman and his supporters attempting to restore order as a mysterious force seeks to put Superman back in power. As seen in the trailer, Supergirl will be joining the game’s cast while Netherrealm has confirmed that Flash villain Gorilla Grodd and Red Lantern Atrocious will be joining the fray. Also if you listen to the text in the trailer around 1:28, the narrator mentions that “each time I enter the pit, I emerge reborn”. Could the demon’s head also show up?

No definitive date was given for the game, although it will be released sometime in 2017. Hopefully the final game won’t be this dark. And I really hope Capcom and Marvel are taking notes….
