A couple of weeks ago a clipping from Best Buy's Sunday ad revealed that the character Robin would indeed be in Batman: Arkham City. Not only is he in it, he is a playable character in challenge mode. Today we get our first look at what Robin will look like in the game.
This rendering of Robin is pretty bad-ass, but he does look like he should be wearing an Affliction t-shirt.
In order to play as Robin, you need to pre-order Arkham City from Best Buy. By pre-ordering there you'll get the Tim Drake Robin pack. According to Best Buy, here is what is in the pack:
While supplies last, pre-order the game for an exclusive downloadable Robin character. Robin is a fully playable character in the new and improved challenge mode in Batman: Arkham City. The Tim Drake Robin pack is available exclusively to fans who pre-order the game from Best Buy on Xbox 360, PC and PS3. Robin comes complete with his own unique gadgets and special moves, and will be playable in all challenge maps in the game, as well as two additional challenge maps that are included with the pack: Black Mask Hideout and Freight Train Escape. The pack will also contain a bonus Red Robin character skin.
I am guessing, for all the GameStop loyals, that this pack will end up being available to purchase down the line. But if you haven't ordered your copy I suggest getting it at Best Buy.
Batman: Arkham City comes out October 18th.
What say you?
