With the first villain of Fighter Pack 2 set to arrive in Injustice 2 later this month, NetherRealm Studios will once again be hosting an Injustice 2 Watchtower Livestream dedicating to breaking down Aquaman’s arch-nemesis Black Manta.
During his official gameplay trailer reveal at the end of the GameStop Hometown Heroes finals, we saw that the aquatic fighter will be brimming with all sorts of gadgets and weaponry from his iconic black wetsuit, which grants him access to eye lasers, a jet pack for a Zatanna-esque float, shoulder-mounted rocket launchers, a teleport punch resembling Mortal Kombat‘s Sektor, his harpoon gun, explosives (that could potentially be a Gear ability), twin blades, and mechanical, extendable trident, which he uses as part of his super.
As usual, the stream will be taking place tomorrow at 3:00 PM Central Standard Time (1:00 PM PT) at https://www.twitch.tv/netherealm.
Black Manta will be released next Tuesday, September 12th, for owners of Fighter Pack 2 or the Ultimate Edition, with his standard release following a week later on September 19th. You can see the announcement tweet below.
