After Cheetah was first revealed in a special trailer showcasing the new ladies of Injustice 2, the villain gets a proper gameplay trailer showcasing her various moves and abilities.

This new Injustice 2 trailer showcases a lot of Cheetah’s special attacks and killer combos. As the NetherRealm Studios team said last week, Cheetah will be a lot of fun to play. Check out the Cheetah Injustice 2 trailer below.

Cheetah and Swamp Thing’s gameplay were streamed on NetherRealm Studios’ official Twitch channel, and demonstrated that Cheetah’s a different type of grappler. While most grapplers in fighting games are slower and do poorly against close-range fighters, Cheetah can hold her own. She wants to get in close and will appeal to the “maniac” players.

Here’s a few of her moves: The Man-Grab throws the opponent to the floor for major damage or meteor burned to start a combo. She also has a low grab for those crouching. Primal Rage is a great wakeup attack as Cheetah does a rising claw attack.

She also has a Pounce attack that varies in range and allows her to close the gap while also launching aerial attacks. You can cancel to fake out opponents or just use it to move around the stage. Her dive bomb move lets her drop down on her opponents fast, and she can actually use it from her Pounce attack.

Her character power gives a damage buff for all of her claw-based attacks. It doesn't last long and has a long cooldown, but it gives a substantial damage buff.

We even get to see a new stage transition inside the Bat Cave and Cheetah’s special, where she launches her opponent into the air and performs a combo of slashes before kicking them back to the ground.

Injustice 2 will release May 16.
