LOL, anyone who is complaining about TMNT being included is going to have my wrath brought upon them. I'm going to sic myself on these people like a rabid dog, not because they don't like TMNT, but because of how butt-hurt they are.

I'll tear them a new one. I'm going to have a lot of fun scouring tumblr, twitter and other forums for the next few days. I can't wait to raise some hell. And everyone knows good and well when I go off the hook, I cannot be stopped.

It's going to be a LONG week.

(Before anyone asks, yes I'm joking)

They should be more upset with the DC characters actually included. The Atom is alright, but not exactly my go-to for a new character. Then there's Enchantress. I realize more people are aware the character exists now because of the Suicide Squad film, but that's still a very deep cut for DC.

I enjoy the guest characters, because NetherRealm really go all out with them. Mortal Kombat X had a horror foursome in Jason, Leatherface, Predator and the Alien (all that was missing was a return for Freddy, who'd guested in the prior game). Now we've got Hellboy and the Turtles. When it comes to getting licensed guest characters they don't screw around.

I wonder if this is the project Christopher Smith said he'd be Raph and Splinter in? (Splinter maybe showing up in their Super Move or Ending?)

TMNT most likely will be 4 character in one, like you switch turtles in the fly.

There is a rumor that creators of Arkham games, Rocksteady making a new TMNT game. Though, at the moment it's just a rumor.

Holy crap! I was asleep when the news dropped and my cat woke me up about two hours ago and I haven't been able to get back to sleep since!

I played the old Injustice game here and there and this new one wasn't on my radar at all ... but I'm definitely going to be picking it up later. I LOVED Mortal Kombat X and it looks like Injustice 2 is getting rave reviews.

Yeah, I'm wondering how this will exactly play out ... for selfish reasons - I would love all four, even with all of the same move set. It just gives me those Tournament Fighters vibes and I would love to play as Raphael by himself, but I guess we'll see exactly how it works out when some footage gets released.

Good lord ... if that ends up being true, that'll be incredible.

Yeah! I loved that X pulled from so many horror movies and I hope they keep that tradition in the follow up. It was weird that they threw ill-fated Jackie Earle Haley design in the mobile version of Mortal Kombat X and didn't try to capitalize on using the classic design with the same move set for the console versions.

Man ... Hellboy AND the TMNT? This is awesome. Is this the final DLC pack for this game I suppose? There's talk of more coming out in 2018 ... but who knows. There was constant talk about another Kombat Pack for Mortal Kombat X, but that faded away.

We've already got Injustice 2, which is probably my wife's favourite fighting game (and she's a massive fan of fighting games in general) so this is... very welcome news. I usually abstain from buying DLC, but I might have to make an exception here. First Hellboy and now this. NetherRealm is killing me here.

I really dig the look of them. When I first clicked the link, I was terrified we'd get some overly-complicated, jacked-up BayTurtles designs, especially considering some of the overdone costume alterations we've seen in the Injustice series already, but these look a lot like the Henson movie designs, just with a tiny bit of extra wraps and straps a la IDW. It's a solid, classic look. They're even shorter than the standard "human" characters!

And it's an extremely minor thing, but I appreciate that you can (assumedly) swap out the '87-style coloured arm and leg bands for Mirage/1990-style brown:

The only DLC characters that do kinda annoy me in Injustice are the Mortal Kombat ones, because... y'know, there's already a whole game for them. I get that it's a callback to MK vs. DC, but I just find it underwhelming in a comic fighting game to not get more comic characters instead.

Yeah there's probably a few different gear/shaders that'll let ya tweak the turtles a bit.

I'm completely with ya on everything! Who would've guessed that in a game we weren't expecting to see the TMNT in at all ... we'd get some of the coolest designs. I cannot wait to see some gameplay footage of these guys.

You're right too in regards to the Mortal Kombat characters, it's not like Batman or Superman get thrown in as DLC for their series. There is that call back, but I'd much rather have other comic franchises thrown in if possible as opposed to MK characters in these.

True, but plot armor, but Batman has been shown beating Superman and whatnot before. I love the turtles but Raph can't touch Superman, but you know, whatevs. I mean might as well toss in Kick-Ass in there too and have him whup the snot out of Darkseid.

Now I do hope they go back and record new lines for the characters in reaction to the turtles. Don't mix and match the old stuff, record new lines for the pre fight scenes. Hopefully some references between the Turtles and Batman.

Check out the crowd reaction to the TMNT reveal. As a fan in general, it's really cool to see.

And yes, loving the Henson TMNT vibe. Fantastic.

I will actually cry tears of joy if we get this as an option.

See, if I were a head honcho at NetherRealm, what I'd do is save the MK characters as DLC and instead give customers who own Mortal Kombat XL and Injustice 2 Ultimate Edition the ability to "lock on" the two games into one giant Mortal Kombat vs. DC experience. Even at a bit of an extra price to unlock. That would be something else. I believe they both use the same engine, so I can't imagine it'd even be that difficult. Though I'm sure the bean-counters think padding Injustice 2 DLC packs with a couple MK characters is more profitable, so...

Now that is the design they should always get in a videogame or movie! I wonder if they are a character played as a team. That would be original.
And yeah, I'll still wait for the unavoidable Ultimate version to get all the characters at once. Like I did with Injustice 1.

They're probably all one character with each turtle being a premium shader, like what they did with Freeze and Snart.
