Batman: Arkham City’s Robin is cooler than anticipated

“Robin?” you scoff. “That red-and-green clad child! Such a meagre bonus does not sway my choice of retailer for Batman: Arkham City.”

Son, the DC universe is a lot cooler outside of that Adam West live action series. Come in and have a look at the Boy Wonder.

Looking a bit more Chris O’Donnell than Burt Ward – although thankfully bearing no other resemblance to the 1997 crime against film – Robin appears in-game as a playable challenge map character for those who pre-order from Best Buy.

He sports his own array of gadgetry and weapons, and you’ll also score the Black Mask Hideout and Freight Train Escape challenge maps and a Red Robin skin.

Arkham City is due on PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 in October, with a Wii U version to follow.

Thanks, Siliconera.
