One of the newest characters to join Injustice 2’s roster Cheetah has just received her own gameplay trailer. While she was previously revealed in the “Here Come The Girls” Valentine’s Day video, this is our first look at her moveset and playstyle. From the brief video, it’s clear that Cheetah is one of Injustice 2’s fastest characters as she’s able to soar across the screen via a downward pounce attack and quickly follow up with some brutal aerial combos.
This allows her to easily juggle opponents and chip away at their health, as she doesn’t appear to have a ton of downtime between hits. Her drawback seem to be a lack of ranged moves, so it will be imperative for users to close the distance quickly and pin their foes in a corner for maximum damage. Cheetah’s “super” move is not nearly as flashy as some, but the spine break at the end is very reminiscent of Bane who’s another famous DC villain. We also get a glimpse at one of the environmental stage changes coming to Injustice 2, as Cheetah sends Robin on a painful ride via the previously parked BatWing.
Cheetah was first introduced in 1943 via the Wonder Woman #6 comic and she still remains one of Wonder Woman’s most famous adversaries. While she has appeared in a number of cartoons, games, and animated films, this marks her first appearance in the Injustice universe.
Injustice 2 is set to release May 16 on Xbox One and PS4.
