We learned a few weeks ago that Best Buy was offering a playable Robin character as a pre-order incentive for Batman: Arkham City. No other details were given, but it’s likely that it’ll be similar to the Joker Challenge Maps for PS3, which allowed you to play as The Joker in a series of maps outside of the core gameplay.
Last night, they revealed their Robin.[singlepic id=385 w=500 h=850 float=center]
He looks a lot like an older Damien, but earlier reports have already confirmed it’s Robin III/Tim Drake. There was some initial backlash over how the character’s look is so drastically altered, but that seems to have simmered down. Ultimately, I think it’s a good look. Not too different from the comics, but definitely in line with the series’ grittier, more realistic feel.
Hopefully, we’ll see some Robin gameplay soon. Batman: Arkham City is out this October.
