With Swamp Thing officially joining the Injustice 2 cast earlier this month, thanks to the reveal video provided by IGN’s long month coverage of NetherRealm Studios upcoming DC Comics based fighter. It appears that the Chicago based studio is ready to put the spotlight on one of the most requested characters to the game.
As recently, they’ve uploaded a gameplay tutorial for Swamp Thing which gives the fans who are patiently awaiting NetherRealm Studio’s latest title a little taste of what they can expect. Such as showcasing Swamp Thing’s ability to summon a clone much like Noob Saibot from Mortal Kombat 9 and perform additional moves for you, or become a nuisance to them as your clone is capable of grabbing them in place.
Check out the latest gameplay video for Injustice 2 below:
Speaking of grabs, to make Swamp Thing a true menace to his opponents especially those who tend to zone out or play keep away with their foes. Swamp Thing can easily close the gap on his foes and keep them guessing on what’s to come with his varying Vine Grab moves. As regardless where they are in Swamp Thing is able to grab them with his vines even if their across the screen or in mid-air. Or, if you choose to rush down your opponents you also have another grab in your arsenal “Green Thumb” which upon meter-burning heals Swamp Thing for a small percent of his life.
Of course no character would be complete in Injustice 2 without a character power reveal and for Swamp Thing his character power is “Abigail’s Garden” which will aims to make the more mobile characters easier to deal with. As standing in his newly sprouted garden, their mobility will reduced including not being able to jump nor dash while in it’s vicinity. To conclude the video, NetherRealm also showcased the Swamp Thing’s brutal super move.
Additionally, for those looking forward to the mobile version of Injustice 2 will have to wait a bit further than some expected. As according to the official Injustice 2 Twitter account, it seems that the mobile version is set to be released sometime this May with no word if it will release before or after the game launches on consoles May 16th.
