Cheetah's got her whiskers in a whirlwind in this snarling new reveal trailer for Injustice 2, shining a spotlight on the maniac minx and her feral fighting skills.

One of the prime villains in the Wonder Woman universe will be a playable character in NetherRealm's upcoming sequel to Injustice: Gods Among Us as she demonstrates her high-flying attacks against the spangled Amazon warrior, Deadshot and Robin with savage intensity.

Here's the official game synopsis from NetherRealm:

Injustice 2 continues the epic cinematic story introduced in Injustice: Gods Among Us as Batman and his allies work towards putting the pieces of society back together while struggling against those who want to restore Superman’s regime. In the midst of the chaos, a new threat appears that will put Earth's existence at risk. Players can play from the biggest DC roster ever offered in a fighting game, from classic fan favorites such as Batman, Superman, Supergirl and Aquaman, to astonishing new villains like Atrocitus, Gorilla Grodd and Deadshot. Battles will take place across arenas that have evolved in scale and span across iconic locations such as Metropolis, Gotham City and Atlantis.

Introduce yourself to Cheetah and her wicked cat claws, then feel the blazing heat of last week's Firestorm character reveal trailer, and let us know if either of these combatants might make your roster when Injustice 2 strikes on May 16 for PS4 and Xbox One.
