Whoah, it's an entirely new character? I thought it was Batman O_O

This was expected..... Well expected to not be Batman.

I am surprised its a completely new character. Looks very interesting.

Yi-Long821d ago

I still believe this will turn out to be Jason Todd (aka Robin 2, Red Hood).

^ Thats what I was thinking. The anit-Batman, mimicking his gear/moves.


Lol or its the Joker playing the biggest joke of all, making Batman think its Todd.......they also introduced Hush in AC and then it was left open.

gatormatt80821d ago (Edited 821d ago )

I'm gonna go WAY out on a limb here and guess that the Arkham Knight is really Deathstroke. I could be totally wrong here and if I am then so be it. But the way Origins ended with, *Spoiler*, Deathstroke in Blackgate prison they hinted that there was more to come with Deathstroke's character. And since in Arkham City both Blackgate and Arkham Asylum were combined as one it means that Deathstroke would have been moved there as well.

I guess I just hope to see more of Deathstroke. The fight with him in Origins was freakin awesome and I hope to see more of it in Arkham Knight.

I think it could be Hush....he did change his face to look like Bruce Waynes so maybe he's doing his own version of Batman.

AliTheSnake1821d ago

This is the VILLAIN, the main Antagonist.
Batman is in the game and he is the Main character, the playable character.

erathaol821d ago

I hope its not Jason Todd, I hate his resurrection and new character concept in the Batman universe.

maniacmayhem820d ago

It'll be the Joker pumped up on venom, watch.

We already saw screenshots though of Batman in game and whats the point of a batmobile without batman??

KeePeR_21821d ago

I think he's going to be an antagonist/protagonist of sorts, I don't think Batman is not going to be the main protagonist, maybe they'll do something sort of like MGS 2 did with Snake and Raiden.

Should make for an interesting back story though.

The plot and story and characters of these batman games are more interesting than the gameplay, which is also awesome.

All that + GTA4 sized City = potential greatness

hades07821d ago

Im thinking Jason Todd. In Battle for the Cowl, he dressed himself up as a gun-toting Batman already.

Evilsnuggle820d ago (Edited 820d ago )

That character looks like Batman beyond. Rocksteady I probably could rework the Terry McGinnis story or Jason Todd.

hkgamer820d ago

its been revealed quite a while ago.

Long as the game kicks ass. Which I'm certain it will :D

liquidhalos821d ago

Im very intrigued, this is potentially very exciting. I respect your concern however the prospect of playing as a new DC character as his story is fleshed out for the first time on our TV screens under the control of our thumbs is pretty cool. I have faith in both Rocksteady and DC. I cant wait now

hiredhelp821d ago (Edited 821d ago )

You cant add in new characters.... Keep it original this the way batman going im out :(
Witch shame as my first batman started in 8bit C64 days.

KonsoruMasuta821d ago

I'm still in, they have a writer from DC comics helping out with the story. That alone assures that this new characters will fit in nicely.

Besides, I don't know if you read the comics, but new characters getting introduced is nothing new.

Jdoki821d ago (Edited 821d ago )

Why should it only be the domain of the comics to add in new characters?

Rocksteady have proved they are good stewards of the Batman videogame universe, and are working closely with DC.

It's exciting and ground breaking (for Batman) to add in a brand new character.

Baccra17821d ago (Edited 821d ago )

Harley was a made up character introduced by the cartoon series on Fox and she's well accepted. Don't see why the Arkham Knight can't wind up that way.

antz1104821d ago

TBH Deadshot was introduced in the Gotham Knight movie, and he's a great character.

Baka-akaB820d ago

Not at all . What you convey isnt wrong at all , cf Harley Quinn .. But Deadshot has been around since the 60s

AliTheSnake1821d ago

This is the Villain. Who said batman is not the main character ?

SilentNegotiator821d ago (Edited 821d ago )

"You cant add in new characters"
You must be a writer for DC.

Worked for characters like Harley.

hiredhelp820d ago

30 disagrees wowsers well its nice to know people disagree have differnt oppinions its cool just my feelings.

Baka-akaB820d ago (Edited 820d ago )

I havent bothered with the articles , but do we even know it's a new character ?

There is an old char named Wrath , wich is essentially an anti Batman .

He had a rebooted version and strong redesign that very much looks like the villain in the game ..

EDit : he's a new character i guess . But still probably a play and mixture of the numerous "anti-batmen" like Hush , Jason Todd , Wrath , prometheus etc

Cool looking character be interesting to see how this works out.

The Meerkat821d ago

Looks like a Cyborg Batman.

It will probably turn out to be a partial clone of Bruce Wayne with Lexcorp tech added.
