If you weren't already convinced that NRS were improving every single aspect from their previous games, take a look at the arcade ending sequence below. It is, quite simply, stunning. This is surely the best arcade ending sequence out of any fighting game.

It looks like we have some more Injustice 2 content to look forward to!

Yesterday, top NRS commentators, competitors and content creators @PND_Ketchup and @PND_Mustard announced that they would be getting their hands on Injustice 2 today!

They have confirmed today that they are already on their way to play the game, and I'm sure we can expect some great content from them.

Another week of Kombat Cup pools have come to an end, with 8 competitors standing above the rest.

There were some great matches on stream, and one absolutely hilarious moment. I urge you to find bkith vs Yungmonster in the archive (about 3 hours 40 minutes in the archive). Trust me, it'll be worth it.

It's nice to see some new names in the top 8 as well. Congratulations to:

Semiij
Revetleafing
Bkith6264
Noble Dragon
Echo Fox SonicFox
Hara Rewind
Noble Tweedy

After what was one of the most impressive trailers I've seen (Shattered Alliances Part 5), it looks like our wait for more Injustice 2 footage will not be long.

The Injustice twitter account has just announced that we will be receiving a Brainiac Trailer tomorrow!

Be sure to check back regularly tomorrow, as we will be sharing it as soon as it crashes down upon us

It's in less than a month when the Capcom boys think they will roll over us, well actually, they think they will roll over SonicFox since he's the best NetherRealm Studios' player in our history. Regardless, like any good rivalry it seems with the NRS scene we always get the hate when a new game is coming out. Why? Because Capcom players think the NRS scene doesn't have what it takes to compete with them... even in our own house.

Keep in mind, this all started from a few "simple" tweets...

Fellow forum warriors I've been thinking how to do this for quite some time. I am trying to come up with a way where I can say, help a talented player get to a major, every major. Players who are serious about going to a tournament but have some money, but not enough. Or players who are grinding pennies to go and could use some assistance. Online beasts who have never been to a major. Etc.

I don't wanna set a specific $, because different people may need different amounts. I want it to be for people who are definitely planning to go play offline, but it is a pinch for them to make it. I'm thinking of letting the game flesh a bit and the new players that will arise make a name, so the major after Evo I wanna start this.

The only thing I thought of, was possibly having people play for it, and the winner of an online tournament wins the $50, $100, etc that they could use and go to the next tourney. It won't be a "online winner wins some cash", it'll be "online winner wins cash to...

After an incredibly hype top 8, with some fantastic matches, the king himself @SonicFox5000 stood victorious.

As with the previous True Identity videos, the Injustice Twitter account has released one for Green Arrow.

It appears that these may be related to arcade endings. In this one, we can see the words "Survivor", "Defender", "Renegade" and see Green Arrow siding with Gorilla Grodd against Batman. There's also a curious face in the mist behind Green Arrow in one of the stills...

EVERYTHING LISTED IN THIS THREAD WAS FROM A PRE RELEASE BUILD OF THE GAME AT A PUBLIC CONVENTION. THIS IS NOT THE FINAL VERSION OF THE GAME IN ANY WAY.

Hi all!

For those of you that are unaware, @PND_Mustard and I were at the Insomnia LAN Festival all weekend in the UK. Injustice 2 was fully playable to the public from Friday to Monday, and there were some exhibitions and showmatches taking place involving OmegaK, Nivek, MissJimmy and UndeadJim.

This meant that we had a ton of hands on experience with a much more up to date build of the game to certain builds we'd played prior. This build included all Beta characters, plus Wonder Woman, Deadshot, Dr Fate, Aquaman, Harley and Swamp Thing.

We played a lot of all non Beta characters, but this thread in particular will focus on Deadshot, as he was by far my most played character. We will be getting the guys into a podcast and discussing everyone else in a video to be uploaded shortly.

I've...
