We all know Batman Arkham Knight isn’t too far off and whilst a lot of details haven’t been revealed yet, I thought it would be the perfect time to share my wish list for Rocksteady’s upcoming conclusion to their Arkham Trilogy. Keep in mind that spoilers for Arkham City are going to follow.
The Arkham games have been notorious for offering a multitude of pre-order bonuses. Offering gamers a various selection of Batsuits to wear in-game can make all the difference in swaying people to pre-order at JB Hi Fi or EB Games. Past games have included Batman Beyond, Batman: The Animated Series, Dark Knight Returns, Brightest Day and Batman Noel, just to name a few. I absolutely cannot wait to see these “Male Barbie Dolls” revealed, Rocksteady could fully utilise the power of the new generation and bring some of the most famous batsuits to a new depth of life. I am personally wishing for an Arkham Asylum Armoured Batsuit.
There was a very short stint of Batman’s sidekicks in 2011’s Batman Arkham City. In the main campaign Robin the Tim Drake iteration (voiced by Troy Baker) aided Batman briefly before taking on a much larger role in the DLC Story Harley Quinn’s Revenge. Nightwing (Dick Grayson) featured solely in the challenge maps. Available to gamers as a singular purchase, I personally believe it was a chance for Rocksteady to get their feelers out there to see what the reception was for the former boy wonder.
