Christopher Nolan is adamant about keeping Robin well away from his Batman movies, but that hasn't stopped Rocksteady Studios from including Bruce Wayne's sidekick in their upcoming title, Arkham City. The extent of his appearance in the story is unknown, but what we do know (courtesy of ArkhamCity.co.uk) is that Robin will be a playable character for everyone who places a pre-order with American retailer Best Buy.
Unfortunately, Australian stores have yet to pick up on this exclusive pre-order bonus. The pack is confirmed for Europe and elsewhere, so keep your eyes open to see who snaps up this deal. Here's a description of the content from Best Buy along with a sweet picture;
"While supplies last, pre-order the game for an exclusive downloadable Robin character. Robin is a fully playable character in the new and improved challenge mode in Batman: Arkham City. The 'Tim Drake Robin Pack' is available exclusively to fans who pre-order the game from Best Buy on Xbox 360, PC and PS3. Robin comes complete with his own unique gadgets and special moves, and will be playable in all challenge maps in the game, as well as two additional challenge maps that are included with the pack: 'Black Mask Hideout' and 'Freight Train Escape'. The pack will also contain a bonus Red Robin character skin."
