... but I dislike the model. He looks nothing like the Tim Drake from the comics. Horrible design. They 'butched' him up, probably to 'please' all the Robin-haters who only know him from the sucky 60's show and the bad movies.

Also sucks that he's exclusive to some, instead of to be enjoyed by all.

I like that he has his pole though. Should make for some cool moves, although I hope he can still do enough hand-to-hand combat.

Abash2558d ago

That Robin actually looks cool.

CobraKai2558d ago

This is one badass looking Robin. I always thought he should have a hooded cape like Jim Lee drew as a concept once.

Coffin872558d ago

Hmm the outfit is cool, but imma wait with a decision till I see his face clearly. Judging from the facing down head, his face could be anything from really flat and dumb to interesting and good-looking.

just_looken2558d ago

Looks cool? i call it pissing on the name well at least hes not called 117 with a yellow/green helmet.

lategamer2558d ago (Edited 2558d ago )

Robin looks cool? WTF?

Atleast give him some fucking hair.

frostypants2558d ago

He looks like they just took Cole from InFamous and stuck him in a Batman suit.

I_find_it_funny2558d ago (Edited 2558d ago )

Challenge maps are completely unnecessary in this and previous game.

I think the only reason they're there is potential DLC. It's hard to add something to the story, but new characters and rooms to challenge mode is easy thing.

Yi-Long2557d ago

... I thought they added some cool extra gameplay to the original game.

AngryTypingGuy2557d ago

Finally, a Robin that doesn't look like a total flamer.

fuzion17c2557d ago

Robin should look like this! Color added too.

He has actually submitted his work already to Rocksteady as I type. Hopefully they agree to make changes to his hair!

I think he looks really fitting to the dark, mature, and twisted world of the game.

Looks like Eminem/Cole too

thugbob2558d ago

Yeah he does look like Cole from Infamous.

Spitfire_Riggz2558d ago

Looks like Chris O donell robin

HowarthsNJ2558d ago

They probably did it this way to avoid dynamic hair during combat.

Jonah_Reese2558d ago

He doesn't have to look exactly like Tim Drake from the comics, no one draws Tim the same every single time. I highly doubt the design had anything to do with anything in the past since Tim Drake is not Dick Grayson.

likedamaster2558d ago (Edited 2558d ago )

Sucky 60's show? No sir, as a kid I highly enjoyed that show. Now the spiderman one, THAT was a sucky show.

On topic/

I'm on board with this Robin. Seems good enough.

antz11042558d ago

@ Yi,

The pole is a smart move. Batman is physically an overpowering, very strong character, so him destroying a room full of henchmen hand to hand makes way more sense than Robin, who was always rather meek. The pole might level the field a little for him.

fuzion17c2557d ago (Edited 2557d ago )

They need to make him look like the original mainstream Robin with black hair since he's most recognizable that way.

It's kinda ironic that Rocksteady made him look like Cole from Infamous. Cole had his hair switched during development. Hope they do the same to Robin!

i like this look, but why all the way to Best Buy.

Ahasverus2558d ago

I'm not sure.. it looks good, though... but I prefer Batman to be alone.

Adexus2558d ago

He still is alone, this is just for challenge maps :)

Although I definitely had my doubts about Robin in this but he does look pretty awesome, he reminds me of Cole from inFamous quite a bit.

jc485732558d ago

I kinda want batgirl =)

Are_The_MaDNess2558d ago (Edited 2558d ago )

she was in the last game

Oracle is Batgirl


jc485732558d ago

i want to see her in her costume.

Are_The_MaDNess2558d ago (Edited 2558d ago )

you know she is in a wheelchair right?

read the first 5 lines

Nitrowolf22558d ago (Edited 2558d ago )

Well robin (Todd) dead since this would be after The Killing Joke.

So is this the third robin? Tim Drake right? IDK about the rest of the robins but from what i know Dick is the only one that actually matures into Nightwing, Todd becomes unstable and killed but eventually is brought back as Red Hood (joker how ironic). But why would he still be Robin?

Anyway this is just a costume from my understanding, So yes BatGirl is still possible since it'll just be for challenges. But don't expect Batgirl in the story.

the Batman Universe is so big i think, Batman Beyond is a alt. reality of Killing Joke i think (since Barbara can walk, unless they cured her)
*****END SPOILER****

antz11042558d ago

Um, Batgirl and Oracle might be the same person, but totally different characters. Everyone here is saying they want the Batgirl Barbara Gordon as a playable character.

I want her too. bow chicka wow wow.

BubbleSniper2558d ago

Batman forever? I see no nipples on this Robin suit, buddy. lol

Lord_Sloth2558d ago

He's talking about the STUPID ass buzz they gave him, not the suit.

Eternus2558d ago

Says the guy with a guy with dramatic anime hair as his avatar xD

Lord_Sloth2558d ago

Dude, seriously. Robin's had the same freaking hairstyle for the last 60 years. Why does he have to get a stupid buzz like every1 in anything nowadays?

Also, thanks for calling me Lord. makes me feel important.
