Injustice 2 character select screen now features Red Hood and better look at remaining silhouettes, June update is live

Injustice 2 has just seen the implementation of its June update. Mainly focusing on bug fixes, the update also brings something very interesting into the fold.

The game's character select screen has been updated to feature all nine of the upcoming DLC fighters. With Red Hood being the first in line to be released, you can now hover of him on the select screen and he will pop up.

All eight of the remaining silhouettes are seen on the screen now, and though you can't move over them just yet, we do get a better look at who these characters might be. For example, the tiny character shadow on the far right is very likely Atom.

If you want another look at Red Hood before he's released, you can also see him in the character customization menu. He is currently inaccessible, but a full-body in-game model is shown.

Check out the images below to see the additions.
