Mortal Kombat studio NetherRealm have announced that joining the previously announced Atom and Enchantress in Injustice 2's next DLC will be the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
The shrinking man and magical antihero are par for the course, but New York’s favourite pizza-loving reptiles is a pleasant surprise. The turtles have appeared in a number of comic book cross-overs in recent years, including alongside Gotham’s caped crusader, but this is the first time Leonardo and the crew will appear beside Batman and the rest in an actual video game.

This is also the first time the turtles have appeared in a fighting game since Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Tournament Fighters, an early 90s arcade game that was eventually ported to consoles and still enjoys a strong underground following to this day.
The characters will also be included in the Ultimate Edition of the game due out later this year, so if you haven’t picked Injustice 2 up yet (and you really should if you like fighting games) you’re best off waiting until then.
