The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles stream from NetherRealm detailed the latest Injustice 2 DLC characters’ moves, as well as some of the changes coming in the new update.

Injustice 2 Version 1.16 will bring a host of interesting tweaks, to say the least. Some of the changes set to appear in the Version 1.16 patch notes may make some players unhappy.

UPDATE: The full February patch notes have been posted.

One interesting tidbit: a NetherRealm rep mentioned that not every character was touched in this new update. Injustice 2 Version 1.16 is available to download now for PS4 and Xbox One but without the official patch notes, this is just a short list of changes mentioned on the stream and documented over on the Injustice 2 subreddit.

We will update with the official notes when they are made available. In the meantime, you can check out the patch notes stream from NetherRealm’s Twitch channel below, which starts around the 57:35 mark, with known changes below that. Let us know what you think of the changes so far in the comments section!
