After her initial reveal in the "Here Come The Girls" Trailer last month, NetherRealm has given fans a closer look at Cheetah with a trailer that spotlights the feral fighter and her various moves and abilities. Battling Robin, Deadshot, and Wonder Woman, Cheetah makes the best of a fast, juggle-heavy moveset to slash her way to victory.

Aside from Cheetah, the trailer shows off a fair bit of new content, including some new moves from Deadshot, as well as a new stage transition involving the Batwing getting its wings clipped. Check it out down below.

Relying heavily on mixups and juggle combos, Cheetah seems like a character worth learning for any fans of Mortal Kombat X's Mileena or Alien. Her mid-air moves appear to make up a good deal of her potential, including a throw that can stop enemies from going in, and a pounce that acts as a kind of dive kick. She also comes with both high and low command grabs that can be juggled for further damage, making her a character that can keep her enemies guessing. 

Last week, NetherRealm sat down during one of their Watchtower Streams, and took a deep dive on Cheetah and Swamp Thing, detailing how their special moves, combos, and passive abilities work. You can find the stream archive here, and while the whole thing is a pretty good time, you can skip to the 48-minute mark to see when Cheetah takes center stage.

NetherRealm recently announced that Injustice 2's gear system will feature microtransactions for cosmetic items, which you can read more about here.
