Here's Our First Look At The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Kicking Shell In 'Injustice 2'

Booyakasha! Everyone’s favorite mutated reptiles are making their way to Injustice 2 next week, dude! Warner Bros and NetherRealm Studios have officially released the gameplay trailer showcasing the latest addition to the DC-centric fighting game: the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Unlike the previous teaser trailer, this new video shows us exactly how the four heroes in a half shell fight, and it’s totally tubular! In it, we see a showcase of each of the four warriors: Michelangelo, Donatello, Leonardo, and Raphael.

The official YouTube channel for Injustice 2 also confirmed that the Turtles went on a one-way trip to DC’s multiverse following a battle with Krang. And while this isn’t the TMNT’s world, they’re going to make themselves right at home alongside some of the most iconic heroes and villains in comics. In this trailer, the Turtles take turns wailing on the bad guys while each of the four brothers gets his moment in the spotlight.

As detailed in today’s press release, players can choose which turtle to play as through the game’s gear customization system. By equipping swords, a bo staff, nunchucks, or sais, users can change their character loadout and play as Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo, and Raphael. If you select a loadout in which you equipped swords, you'll control Leo in battle. One with a staff will be Donnie, and so on. Each character will each play as their own distinct characters, complete with unique move sets, character powers and special moves. Since loadouts are unavailable in online and tournament modes, players can select each individual brother from the character select screen.

The video also shows how other members of the turtles gang fly in to finish attacks and extend combos by way of an assist. Michelangelo can kick his skateboard across the screen. Donatello, who wields a enticing bo staff, has longer reach than the other turtles. Leonardo can chuck ninja stars, whereas Raphael looks like he's mostly about being up close and personal. Raphael’s super move features contributions from all three of his brothers for a large team shellshock attack, with each doing damage to the enemy with their signature weapons before shouting "Shell Shock!" and smashing their shells into the airborne opponent. It also appears that each of the Turtles summon their brothers to perform assist attacks during the course of a match. That may add another dimension of strategy to the game, and fans are eager to see more of the Turtles in play. Also, it is thought that Raphael’s victory screen is a Easter egg paying homage to Mortal Kombat‘s infamous “toasty!” meme.

Expect the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to kick shell on Tuesday, February 13 for players who own the Injustice 2 Ultimate Edition, Injustice 2 Ultimate Pack or Fighter Pack #3. They will become available as standalone DLC starting on Tuesday, February 20 from the PlayStation Store, Xbox Store, Steam, or Microsoft Store for $9.99 USD; £11.9 GBP.

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have previously shared countless games with DC Comics characters so it’s a lot of fun to see them brought together like this. This almost feels like a natural extension of the recent Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics. In those books, the Turtles also fight Batman and other DC characters. From the sneak-peeks, it looks like the NetherRealm team went with Steve Barron’s designs featured in the very first live-action TMNT movie. This makes some kind of sense given how those designs blend nicely with the art style of Injustice 2.
