It seems the gaming world has gone a little nuts over Batman: Arkham City. Apparently people really like being Batman. After one week the game has shipped over 4.6 million copies. Hows that compare to an issue of Batman? Well Batman #1 sold less than 200,000 in the entire month of September. We hear a lot of talk about movies bring people into comics, but has anyone had that conversation concerning video games? Now might be the time.
But it’s also nearly time to play as some new characters in the game. Namely, the iconic Bat-sidekicks Robin and Nightwing. Both will be DLC, Robin is already available and Nightwing comes out next Tuesday. They each even have a few skins, so you can play as Red Robin or animated series versions of Robin and Nightwing. They look a little silly when compared to the more realistic style of the rest of the game, but it’s still way cool to have the option, right?
I haven’t played the game yet, I have no game systems nor time to use them, but I imagine if my ignorant excitement is any indication you gamers must be losing your shit. If you haven’t already run back to your console to download the goods, feel free to check out the trailers for each character below.
