    They seem to be avoiding the Q1 barrage of games. I’ll likely skip Injustice 2 and wait for the complete edition an year later. In the meantime Tekken 7 and the updated KOFXIV will fulfil my fighting game needs.

    I really hope Tekken 7 will be good.

    Tekken 7 is going to shit all over this.

    Hopefully the Switch gets a version of the game with all the DLC.

    I love Injustice on my Wii U, but never getting the second batch of characters was just plain ridiculous.

    Do you think that the Switch can handle 5 games with patches and dlcs with the internal space? You have to know that the last COD is 130gb…

  • catazxy

    I expect Injustice 2 to fall into obscurity, sadly…

  • Kiryu

    That’s not really an accomplishment,90percent of fighting games are better then netherrealm games.

    Just because you can’t play fighting games, doesn’t mean it’s netherrealm’s fault…
