DJs Steve Aoki and Don Diablo are stepping away from the turntables and picking up the controllers as they face off in Injustice 2 next week at gamescom 2017. The two will go head to head on August 23rd at 12:00 p.m. CET (4:oo a.m. PT/7:00 a.m. ET), battling live on the PlayStation 4. Steve Aoki is a two-time Grammy Nominated DJ and Producer and Owner of Team Rogue. Don Diablo is a World Wide Top DJ and frequent collaborator with hit artists including Ed Sheeran, Rihanna, and Coldplay.
If you’re lucky enough to be at gamescom, you can head over to the Twitch stage located in Hall 9, A-052 to get a ring side seat. Following the match, fans will have a chance to meet both DJs during a Meet and Greet session. The event will also be live-streamed on both twitch.tv/twitch and twitch.tv/netherrealm. Aoki and Diablo will play up to five rounds, with the first to win three of the “thrilling mega matches” to be crowned the victor.
From the victor’s spoils, there will be a donation of $5,000 to be made to the Aoki Foundation, founded by Steve Aoki with the primary goal of finding advances in brain science through funding research in regenerative medicine and brain preservation. The foundation also supports humanitarian causes dear and near to Steve Aoki such as disaster relief, developmental disabilities, and animal-rights.
During the event, an exclusive Injustice 2 announcement will take place to reveal the next three DLC characters coming in Fighter Pack #2. Currently available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Injustice 2 features a massive roster of DC Super Heroes and Super-Villains and allows players to build and power up the ultimate version of their favorite DC characters.
