The hit Injustice fighting series is about to get a heavy dose of the Suicide Squad.

A new trailer for Injustice 2 has been released, introducing fan favorites Harley Quinn and Deadshot to the beat-‘em-up video game proceedings. The interpretations of these two DC baddies are top-notch, as Harley has her handy baseball bat and Deadshot is strapped with his trademark arm guns. This being an Injustice game, the footage understandably looks incredible.

It seems to be no accident that these two show up in-game in the weeks after Suicide Squad hit the big screen, and the scenes on display here do a good job of fusing their comic looks with the big-screen designs general fans might be more familiar with. Oh, and Harley Quinn vs. Wonder Woman? Yes, please.

The game itself will pick up in the wake of Injustice: Gods Among Us as Batman and his team work to re-establish order following the fall of Superman’s regime. Plus, considering how much Justice League director Zack Snyder seems to like this series, it could definitely be one to keep an eye on (even if you’re not that into video games).

Injustice 2 is slated to hit shelves May 2017 for Xbox One and PS4.
