Hot on the heels of the SDCC’s announcement that Copperhead will be one of the assassins hunting Batman in Arkham Origins, we’ve just heard of another addition. Jervis Tech, AKA the Mad Hatter, will be joining the rest of the Arkham Origins rogues gallery. Jervis has a penchant for dressing in the get up of the Mad Hatter from the Alice in Wonderland stories, and underneath his various caps are mind control devices that Tech uses to his evil ends, which have varied over the years from the disturbing to downright ridiculous.
As many players of the previous game Arkham City already know, The Mad Hatter had a brief appearance in the entry. I thought his portion was a pretty fun time and helped bring me back to the trippy fun that Scarecrow’s fear toxin brought in Arkham Asylum. According to IGN that’s what we’ll be treated to in the prequel, a longer variation of the Mad Hatter level from Arkham City. So be on the lookout for Bats wearing one of good ole’ Jervis’ mind control hats to fight out of!
The number of rogues in this game is certainly building every few weeks. In the line-up so far we have The Joker, Penguin, Mad Hatter, Black Mask, Bane, Copperhead, Deathstroke, and Deadshot. And unless they are counting the first four on that list as the eight assassins after Batman, then that means we have about four assassins left to be announced.
Who else will we see in Arkham Origins? The game is looking fantastic at this point and comes out October 25th 2013! Let us know your predictions below!
