Dark Horse Comics’ Hellboy is almost here for NetherRealm’s DC Comics-based fighting game, Injustice 2.
Just in time for Thanksgiving
Maybe the most hotly (sorry) anticipated character in Injustice history, Hellboy is almost here. A creation of Mike Mignola, Red here has had a pretty long-running comic series from Dark Horse and starred in two motion pictures (with a reboot on the way). He’s had toys, and even a video game to his credit too. And this isn’t his first appearance in a DC-related project either.
Back in ’99 Hellboy crossed over with Batman and Starman for a mini-series. But while that little item might not be all that well-recalled by most, this one looks fantastic. Hellboy not only looks as character-perfect as possible, but he also seems to fit right in with the cast of the game.
He’s coming up in short order too, joining the likes of Red Hood, Sub-Zero, Starfire, Black Manta, and Raiden. All of those DLC characters have already seen release of course. Fans will have to wait till November 14th to play as Hellboy however.
Oh, and that’s if you bought into one of the special editions. If you have Injustice 2 Ultimate Edition, Injustice 2 Digital Deluxe Edition, Injustice 2 Ultimate Pack or Fighter Pack #2, you’re good to go.
If you didn’t, and you just want to grab him a’la carte, you’re still okay. You’ll just have to wait till the 21st.
