Injustice 2 Mobile Celebrating Superman’s 80th Anniversary
We are less than a week away from Superman’s 80 anniversary and to celebrate this huge milestone, Warner Bros. and NetherRealm are giving fans something to rave about. At least for those who play Injustice 2 mobile anyway. Think original Superman and his red tighty whities…I bet you’re excited now!
Today Warner Bros. announced that they’re teaming up with NetherRealm Studios, the developer behind Injustice 2, to make the mobile version of the game that much better. So what are they doing? They’ve decided to celebrate the big 80th anniversary by bringing sexy back literally…with a special Classic Superman character. The press release stated that “The new character was inspired by Superman’s first appearance ever in Action Comics #1, red trunks and all!”
And even though the Classic Superman is already an awesome edition to Injustice 2 mobile, fans have more to get excited about with a brand new in-game event designed specifically to celebrate the big date. According to Warner Bros. the anniversary celebration “continues during a special in-game event where Classic Superman invades the popular game mode, The Arena, for a limited time. Classic Superman will not invade every battle, but when he does, players will have the chance to receive Hero Shards if they defeat him.”
Warner Bros. even shared why this character addition to the popular game is so special stating, “Classic Superman pays homage to the cultural icon’s first appearance 80 years ago with unique fighting abilities that lower the defense of his opponent while damaging the entire team.” The new character is available now, but if you’re wondering whether to get in on that Classic Superman action, you can check out the screen shot below.
The Classic Superman unfortunately isn’t available for Injustice 2 on the PC, Xbox One, or PlayStation 4, though maybe we’ll see some magic down the line. After all, there’s no denying that there are larger audiences for both of these platforms than the mobile. What do you think about the character? Are you hopeful that this Classic Superman will be added to the PC, Xbox One, and PS4 versions? Let us know in the comments below and keep it locked for updates!
