In Teen Titans and Young Justice I saw Deathstroke fight hand to hand more than anything, and the Arkham Origins boss fight.

He used guns and a sword in Young justice and in origins he used a Bo staff

Did you forget Batman is a ninja? If it weren't for the grappling hook, he'd probably be the best bet.

I mean I am so confused right now. Deathstroke is basically serious Deadpool (with good reason) and you think he would be host for Shredder as a premium skin if he were in the game?

He was. He's not in Injustice 2, though. Why? I'm not sure. A couple others were dropped as well, such as Raven, Sinestro, Shazam and Lex Luthor (though in the case of Shazam and Lex, that at least makes sense considering the Injustice Earth versions got themselves killed in the first game).

Still, it's moot, because I agree with the others that he'd be a poor base for a Shredder skin. I don't think anyone is really close enough for it. Some are saying Batman, but even then, he's gadget heavy and doesn't fight the same.

Rented Injustice yesterday because I got super impatient wanting to get a feel of this game before the TMNT arrive.

I guess we'll probably get more clues on how they'll play whenever they release the "Introducing ... " game-play footage they've been uploading?

Most likely because parts of his gameplay were given to Deadshot.

I never understood why fighters cut characters from previous games and don't include them. Their movesets are practically done, and although I know they would have to tweak them to match gameplay of the sequels, isn't it basically throwing away an almost complete fighter? Plus they know fans play as certain characters and are upset they weren't in the sequels.

I'll never understand why fighters purposely remove old characters. This has been my gripe in almost every fighter sequel ever.

You're not a developer, you don't have to understand.

Because roster is finite and, if you do not just an update of existing fighting game (like in case with Guilty Gear, BlazBlue or many other niche fighting games), but a new installment, you need to overhaul gameplay of all characters from scratch (which means you need to create new / additional animations, rebalance gameplay for the new rules and systems and so on).

At this point, there is effectively no difference between creating new character and reusing the old one. Well, maybe reusing old one is a bit easier, if we talk about, say Tekken, but it is still not a simple matter of copypasting old assets and animations.

In case of Deadshot and Deathstroke - you have two characters who quite similar to each other. Of course, theoretically you can make both distinct with their own unique gameplay, but it's a matter of time, money and approval of DC bosses.
In this case, it was decided that Deadshot should be a more prominent character (in lieu of his appearance in Suicide Squad) and Deathstroke is not worth the efforts, so Stroke was stroked out and Shot got a shot to be in the game. And to speed up development process, some of the Deathstroke moves (as well as that of Erron Black from MKX) were given to Deadshot.

This game is definitely on my list when we get the inevitable $20 Complete/Ultimate Edition. I still have yet to beat the first Injustice.

It's nice to see CGI turtles that still have the classic Henson aesthetic.

Sakurai said it best when discussing characters from Smash: building a new character and a returning character take almost equal parts of work when developing a new incarnation of a series.

They better bring back Ice Climbers in the next Smash. They even said they were done and working on the Wii-U and just removed them because the 3DS version couldn't handle two characters moving at once.

When did they say that? I thought they only said they're not working on one, that's it.

And with that reactions the reveal got and if the DLC pack sells through the roof it might interest WB to invest on the license to do a proper TMNT game at their own time, with no pressure to meet deadlines and to release while the interest is high because of popularity and instead create a good TMNT game for once.
Between this and the Batman crossover comics, we can only hope.

Right around that time, but I can't find anything about it for the life of me, but they did say it, if I remember it then they said it, I never forget random bits of trivia I've ever heard, for what it's worth anyway...

Idk but they're doing their best to imitate the 90s movie TMNT.
