In the trailer above, Noctis shows off his magical abilities and his signature Engine Blade in combat. He’s battling on a new stage, too, the Hammerhead Garage from FF15.
Noctis will arrive in a spring 2018 DLC package. He follows the next DLC addition to the roster, Geese Howard, from SNK’s Fatal Fury franchise, due to arrive sometime by the end of this year. That character was announced back in July.
Other Twitter reactions were just as jubilant.
Ninja Turtles are coming to Injustice 2. Noctis is coming to Tekken 7. Dragonball Fighterz is about to have Riley from Boondocks as DLC. Just watch.— Blessing Adeoye Jr. (@BlessingJr) November 13, 2017
That tweet references Saturday’s surprise announcement that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are joining Injustice 2’s roster in its next Fighter Pack.
