On August 13, Zatanna will be released for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of Injustice: Gods Among Us. As with previous DLC characters, her existence was heavily rumored before it became confirmed as true.
I’m definitely getting a Kung Lao vibe from Zatanna, and it’s not just the hat. I wonder if that teleport at 30 seconds in is actually a parry/counter. Also, that’s one hell of a divekick at 45 seconds. It also looks like the hat itself is part of either a stance mechanic ala Gen, or some kind of trait. I’m guessing on the latter. It seems like with the hat off, she is a rushdown character, and with it on, she is keepaway/zoner. A hybrid character like this hasn’t really been done in Injustice to my recollection. Looks fun, especially that weird split counter thingy to Grundy’s super.
One thing that surprises me is that this trailer doesn’t show the free skin we’ll get as part of the compatibility pack. Every DLC character for Injustice is accompanied by a free skin, but we don’t know what this one will be yet.
As with Martian Manhunter, Zatanna is not covered by the Injustice season pass, and will cost $5 on your platform of choice, unless that platform is the Wii U, since we don’t know when she’ll be available for the Wii U.
