Best Buy Lists Injustice 2 Legendary Edition
Online retailer lists Injustice 2 complete edition.

Retail giant Best Buy has given us our first indication of the final edition of Injustice 2 with an unverified release date of March 27th!

Injustice 2 Legendary Edition is the expected all-in-one package that's become a customary final blow in the NetherRealm Studios development cycle. Like Mortal Kombat: Komplete Edition and Mortal Kombat XL; Legendary Edition boasts all of the post-release downloadable content, including: an advertised 10 additional characters, 6 Premier Skins, and God & Demon Shaders.

Best Buy lists Injustice 2 Legendary Edition for PlayStation 4, PS4 Digital, Xbox One, and Xbox Digital for $59.99 on all platforms.

The Legendary Edition cover can be identified by its golden hue, and the pictured feature of downloadable guest characters: Hellboy, Darkseid, Raiden, Enchantress and Leonardo.

The printing of all digital content on a disc usually signals the end of one game, and looming of the next.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Injustice 2 Gameplay Trailer
Injustice 2 has turtle power in TMNT gameplay trailer!

They're the hotly anticipated four-in-one special combo that concludes Injustice 2's Fighter Pack 3! The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are finally here in the new gameplay trailer!

Each turtle steps into the arena with his own unique dialogue and animation, announcing from the outset that players will be able to control Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael or Michelangelo by choice. The brothers clearly have each other's backs, though, jumping into the fray for special tag team moves!

The ultimate combo is the four-on-one "shellshock" Super Move that crushes the opponent between four mutated half-shells after they've been slapped around by individual attacks! It's a shelluva move!

The TMNT join DC Comics' Atom and Enchantress to wrap up the downloadable Fighter Pack 3. That brings the total of post-release DLC characters to a whopping twelve, if you count each turtle individually!

Injustice 2 Ninja Turtles Reveal This Week
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles leave the shadows this week!

Injustice 2 already has eight downloadable characters to choose from, but when the big reveal comes later this week, that number may round out to an even dozen!

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were one of the most surprising character reveals of the three DLC Fighter Packs, leaving some of the most challenging questions for what seems to be last! Some answers may finally come Wednesday (February 7th), when the developer hosts a special Watchtower "pizza party" livestream. A much anticipated gameplay trailer will follow soon after.

The question of how players will control the quartet of Turtles is the most burning, partly teased in a screenshot posted by the venerable Ed Boon [above]. Raphael and Michaelangelo share the screen, with notably different gear, but are they switching out as part of a tag mechanic -- or fighting simultaneously?

NetherRealm last featured a full fledged Tag Team mode in 2011's Mortal Kombat, but played with a unique team style presentation for the collaborative Mortal Kombat X character(s): Ferra/Torr.

You have to go all the way back to 2004 to find the last time Tagging was a unique part of a character's arsenal: "Noob-Smoke" served as tag teaming sub-boss in Mortal Kombat: Deception. If the Ninja Turtles go down this route, will the player have two characters to summon - or four?

Incorporating the ninja brothers into special moves could be another way to bring them into the fight. That may explain the skateboard flying in Black Manta's general direction. It looks like all four Turtles will be in the spotlight, though. So will players be able to use a special menu, or Gear options, to pick their playable preference? Check out a couple more screenshots below:


Leonardo, Donatello,Raphael & Michaelangelo join a cast of crossover characters that includes fellow independent comic book icon Hellboy, and Mortal Kombat's own Raiden and Sub-Zero!
