Batman Arkham City Update: Meet Tim Drake... aka Robin!

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Rocksteady Studios have revealed a third playable character for their upcoming Batman videogame sequel "Batman: Arkham City", and it's none other than the Dark Knight's partner - Robin! Specifically, it's Tim Drake - the third person to take on the mantle and identity of the Boy Wonder, and he comes equipped with his trademark bo staff which he made his signature weapon when the character debuted in comics in the late 80's. Via Newsarama, here's a look at Robin as he appears in Arkham City:

Honestly, he looks more like Chris O'Donnell's Dick Grayson/ Robin from "Batman Forever", or heck even rapper/ singer Eminem than Tim Drake here. Anyway, he'll be appearing like this in Arkham City, as a third playable character in the game's challenge mode. The character will specifically be made available via Best Buy's "Tim Drake Robin" challenge pack when you pre-order the game from them. Also included are two challenge map levels - "Black Mask Hideout" and "Freight Train Escape". Additionally, players will also have the option to switch Tim's look to his current identity of "Red Robin" via an additional skin. For more info, check out the source post at Newsarama!

Batman: Arkham City swings into Xbox 360, PS3, and PC come October and Wii U on 2012!
