Batman Arkham Knight 'only' has 243 Riddler Trophies

UPDATE: If you want to solve all 243 Riddles, then head over to our Batman: Arkham Knight Riddler guide.

So good news for those of you who will obsessively hunt down those pesky Riddler Trophies in Batman Arkham Knight. 243 of the glowing green rewards are waiting for you in Gotham. After the staggering 440 up for grabs in Arkham City if you played as both Batman and Catwoman, this is practically a holiday.

Creative director at Rocksteady, Sefton Hill, confirmed the number on Twitter after running a competition to see who could guess. Teasing ‘quality over quantity’, Hill awarded the winner with a full scale Catwoman trophy replica from prop makers Triforce.

The 440 trophies in Arkham City were a combination of both brain and thumb gymnastics as you made the most of your gadgets to open locked cages via pressure pads and detonators. We can safely assume that Arkham Knight will have a similar set up to utilise the Caped Crusader’s even bigger arsenal of Waynetech. Add in the abilities of the Batmobile to get you into some hard to reach areas and it's horribly clear that these are going to get rather tricky.

Not content with just hammering our IQ this time around, the Riddler has also opened up a range of underground challenges across Gotham to test our Batmobile mettle. So if 243 nightmare to reach trophies aren’t enough, you can head to these for some masochistic driving fun. Bring on June the 23rd.
