Batman: Arkham City devs tease a fan-favorite for new DLC

We like Batman just fine here at GamesRadar, which is lucky because otherwise we'd probably get thrown off the Internet. So when Rocksteady teased new content for the game in the form of this enigmatic boots 'n' mallet image, it took about two seconds to conclude that Harley Quinn was probably bound for the game. Particularly as everyone online was all “hey look it's Harley Quinn, Harley Quinn's in Arkham City, there's Harley Quinn's feet, probably attached to Harley Quinn.”

Admittedly, this isn't the first tease we've had of the upcoming lady-villain: a recent Batman: Arkham City DLC leak suggests the character will probably figure in single-player missions for Robin. “So excited to see all the speculation around our tease today,” tweeted Rocksteady community manager Sarah Wellock shortly after the pic was released. If you have speculations other than “soon Harley Quinn will be in Arkham Asylum,” please share them below; when someone plans you a nice surprise, it's always polite to act like you had no idea it was coming.

    that hammer can only belong to one comic badass bitch: Ramona Flowers! right?

    Ramona Quimby could kick Ramona Flowers ass.

    Finally dlc worth buying. I just wish there weren't achievements tied to those damned challenge mode skins.

    my recaptcha shows an actual picture. Harley Quinn dlc sounds quite interesting even moreso if we could play as her

    So stoked for this. Definitely one of my favorite games of all time, and I couldn't be more excited for Single-player DLC!

    MC Hammer, no doubt.

    Good God, let me just play as Red Hood and beat the crap out of villains AND heros. What fun that would be!
  • Senorwaffles - April 21, 2012 6:44 a.m.

    Soon, Harley Quinn will be in Arkham City. Ha.

    I knew it! I knew my letter campaign for including Steel, the Shaquille O'Neil comic-based movie, would pay off! Just a few more months of this and I bet they'll make my Kazaam sandbox game too! ...What? What do you mean that's not him?! Who's "Harvey Quint?"

    Herley with a massive Mallet, things could get interesting. I cant wait for the Sidekick vs Sidekick DLC :P

    definitely excited about this!!! arkham city was the first game i really wanted to finish and do everything possible in it. This update is going to be awesome and hopefully they'll tease the third game pretty soon too. if i remember correctly, they only waited half a year before releasing the first trailer for arkham city after Arkham asylum came out!!!
