knew the controversy over Robin and Batman: Arkham City would focus not on the divisive
character’s mere inclusion in the game, but on his appearance? Fans didn’t seem
to mind that the tights-clad, potentially silly sidekick would join the gritty franchise,
just that he looked too much like the generic buzz cut hero of InFamous.
with the reveal of two more Robin costumes, even that concern has been
addressed. You can play as the hooded Standard Robin, the older Red Robin or
the classic red-and-green Robin from The Animated Series.
All three costumes are playable in the game’s challenge modes, though it’s currently unclear whether all three are a part of Best Buy’s Robin pre-order bonus in the US (the image above was spotted by ArkhamCity.co.uk on the German version of Amazon).
last, possible fun fact: the main Robin in Arkham City has been confirmed by
Rocksteady as Tim Drake, but the Animated Series Robin is Dick Grayson and the
mantle of Red Robin was once held by Jason Todd. So in addition to choosing
your favorite Boy Wonder costume, you can choose your favorite Boy Wonder, period.
Well, which will it be?
