If you're anything like me, you are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Injustice 2 trailer. I cannot wait to see how they play and what they're capable of.

Fortunately, Creative Director at NetherRealm Studios, Ed Boon, shared two screenshots showing the turtles in-game over on Twitter. It's not gameplay footage, but I'll take it!

If the Ninja Turtles are known for one thing, it's their love of pizza. NRS has shown a great attention to detail in Injustice 2, with unique strings of dialogue between characters, Easter eggs, references to the comic books, and much more littered throughout the game. It seems the same goes for the Ninja Turtles.

Our first screenshot features what appears to be Raphael holding a box of pizza in what is either one of their intros or the win screen. The side of the box prominently displays a caution sign that Mortal Kombat fans will undoubtedly recognize.

The second image shows two of the turtles fighting against Black Manta. Boon's message accompanying the screenshot says, "teamwork."

In their reveal trailer, the line "we fight as a team" is said, implying that we'll be able to use multiple turtles in battle. We haven't seen how it'll work yet, but the above screenshot seems to further cement that theory.

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are the final character (they all count as one) in Injustice 2's Fighter Pack #3. Considering the game's DLC release schedule so far, it is likely that they will be released sometime this month.
