Brainiac takes down the Man of Steel in newest Injustice 2 spotlight video

Last week, NetherRealm released a new story trailer for Injustice 2 which focused on newcomer villain Brainiac, and we even said it likely wouldn’t be long before the powerful alien being got his own spotlight trailer. Well, NetherRealm recently cashed that check we wrote by uploading a new character spotlight video that’s all about Brainiac.

As you can see in the video, Brainiac will be a hard fighter to pin down, using a combination of his robotic tentacles, various projectiles, and close-range melee combos to punish his opponents at all ranges. His ultimate attack will be an impressive visual treat as well, involving the summoning of his robotic servants to immobilize his opponent before they get blasted from the sky by his spaceship.

Brainiac will be one of 28 fighters confirmed for Injustice 2’s roster (a roster which will also grow post-launch thanks to DLC fighter additions) when the game launches on May 16 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
