Batman: Arkham City Nightwing DLC swooping in with new maps and skins November 1

Batman: Arkham City players won't have to wait long to get their hands on the Boy Wonder and his alternate - and more badass - ego, Nightwing. Warner Brothers Interactive today confirmed that the latter Nightwing Bundle Pack will be ready for download as soon as November 1, with the Robin DLC to follow weeks later on November 22.

As previously hinted in a leaked trophy list, Nightwing will join the game as a playable character sporting new moves and gadgets in Arkham City's challenge maps. His DLC will also include two new challenge maps, Wayne Manor and Main Hall, as well as an alternative Animated Series version of the Nightwing costume. It will retail for $6.99 (560 Microsoft Points).

For the same price, players can also pick up the Robin character pack on November 22. The follow-up DLC will also offer new challenge maps and skins, and is currently available a pre-order bonus at Best Buy in the US, and at Gamestop in the UK. Watch Batman's protégéin action in this European trailer:

Oh, and remember Batman? He'll be playable too in the actual full game when it arrives October 18 in North America and on October 21 in the UK.
