Just when it seems as though NetherRealm Studios might be wrapped up on characters for “Injustice,” more characters get added as Downloadable Content. Although the initial Season Pass of characters — which included Lobo, Batgirl, General Zod and “Mortal Kombat’s” Scorpion — is now done, NetherRealm had more tricks up its sleeve with the release of Martian Manhunter, and now have confirmed that Zatanna will be the next character added to the game. Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and NetherRealm have released a trailer highlighting Zatanna’s fighting style in a battle against Solomon Grundy.
While Zatanna’s magic is definitely on display with props like a magic wand, a deck of cards and more, don’t expect her to be rattling off words backwards very much in the trailer as incantations. Although many of her spells are impressive, from teleportation to fireballs and electric shocks, the only time she actually says a phrase backwards to cast a spell is during her ultimate attack, which takes her enemy to a different dimension, encases them in a magical box and drops it back down to Earth.
Zatanna releases as downloadable content August 13 on Xbox Live Marketplace for 400 MS Points and on PlayStation Network for $4.99.
