The prodigal son returns.
During the stream of Injustice 2, Netherrealm revealed a new trailer focused solely on Robin. Fans were confused about which Robin this would be, given that there are many of them, but the studio confirmed that this version of the Boy Wonder would be Batman’s biological son, Damian Wayne. Damian was in the original game as Nightwing some years after accidentally killing Dick Grayson, but now he’s slimmed down and returned to the hood and cape. Plus, he’s rocking a sword.
The Injustice 2 trailer showed off Robin’s handy sword work against opponents such as Deadshot, Aquaman, and Batman. In addition to the sword, he can teleport behind enemies to get the drop on them, along with using Birdarangs to cover enemies a distance away. His special attack involves throwing the birdarangs, then slicing his enemy with his sword multiple times. Then, the birdarangs embed themselves in the enemy and detonate. Classic Damian Wayne.
Injustice 2 brawls its way to the PS4 and Xbox One on May 16.
