Not too long ago we showed you a trailer that revealed Catwoman as a playable character in the campaign mode of the highly anticipated (By me at least) Batman: Arkham City. Now it seems that won’t be the only addition to the cast.
While it is an unconfirmed report, it seems that if you pre-order the game from Best Buy you will be given the chance to play as Robin in 2 of the challenge maps. For fans of the first game you will remember that the challenge maps included both Stealth and Combat levels were you had to test your skills as Batman against waves of villains.
We’ve been waiting for news on Robin’s involvement, or whether or not there would be ANY involvement. As to the report you can check the link at Best Buy (which has been removed but is still kind of accessible) and over at arkhamcity.co.uk they have a Tweet from @arkhamcitynews telling us to wait for some more info on Robin.
Definitely exciting news for fans of Robin, and while I was hoping that we would get more Robin and not just this exclusive Challenge map, the overall greatness of the game is more important to me than bogging it down with characters that might detract from the story.
Maybe we’ll see more of Robin, and if we get to wish for things anyway, some Nightwing in Batman: Arkham Nation because I could play these games over and over. I know I might be getting a little ahead of myself but I enjoyed Arkham Asylum so much that I have pretty much already established that this game can do no wrong.
I hate having to pre-order to get stuff, but with the lure of Robin it looks like I might be getting my game from Best Buy. How about you? Do these kind of offers change how you purchase your video games? Do you think I’m way off base in assuming this game will be awesome?
