Batman: Arkham City may be getting a visit from the Boy Wonder, if an apparent leak from retailer Best Buy is to be believed. Fan site Arkhamcity.co.uk noticed the site was offering the ability to play as Robin in two Challenge Maps as a pre-order bonus. The page was quickly pulled.
The Best Buy leak alone isn't much to go on, but the official Twitter account for the game all but confirmed the news with a follow-up tweet. It read, "For those of you with burning questions about the recent Robin/Best Buy announcement stay tuned as we will be revealing more details soon!"
So it sounds like Robin is likely playable in Challenge Map form, not unlike Joker in Batman: Arkham Asylum. We'll just have to see how this gritty take on the Dark Knight deals with Robin's trademark bright red and yellow spandex.
The game is due out later this year. Check out our E3 preview for more details.
