New Injustice 2 gameplay trailer puts the spotlight on Robin

NetherRealm has released a new gameplay trailer for Injustice 2 which prominently features the Boy Wonder himself, Robin.

The trailer shows Robin fighting a variety of opponents including Aquaman, Deadshot, and, of course, his former mentor Batman using a unique “blade staff” weapon which he wields with a great degree of skill. The trailer also confirms through some pre-fight dialogue that this Robin is in fact Batman’s own son, Damian Wayne, which is odd considering that Damian took up the mantle of Nightwing in the original Injustice: Gods Among Us after (spoilers) he accidently killed the original Nightwing, Dick Grayson.

We’ll have to wait until Injustice 2’s May 16 release date to find out why Damian went back to his old Robin alias but, judging from the trailer, it looks like he’ll at least be a lot of fun to play regardless.
