Announced yesterday at San Diego's Comic-Con, Nightwing and Cyborg will be joining the ranks of NetherRealm's upcoming fighter.

According to Polygon (who had hands-on time with the fighters), Nightwing is primarily a weapons-based fighter who wields a staff. Evidently, he is much more agile than the rest of the roster and has great evasive capabilities. Nightwing can also change his attack set by pressing a special button ("B" on your gamepad). Pressing this splits his staff in two, increasing his speed and jump height, but decreasing his attack range.

While Nightwing may be known to many DC fans, Cyborg is much more of an unknown.

Cyborg is a power-striking, hand-to-hand brawler who compliments his close quarters skills with long-range lasers, fireballs, and missile strikes. Cyborg's special "B button" move allows him to regenerate his health.
