Batman Day is pretty much here, and fans eager to celebrate 75 years and all things about the Caped Crusader are treated to some boombastic news for one of the most anticipated games featuring the Dark Knight and made by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, DC Entertainment, and Rocksteady Studios - that being Batman: Arkham Knight!
Via a report Batman-News.com, a reader by the name of "El Murcielago" sent in what appears to be a new banner ad that not only promotes the game's release and the Harley Quinn story pack... but a newly added Gamestop exclusice story pack that spotlights the Red Hood, aka Jason Todd the second Robin. True to Rocksteady's take on the Batman universe with the Arkham games, Jason gets a redesign for his costume, and this time the "Red Hood" is not a helmet but a literal jacket hood, and his portrait is sort of a homage to Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed games with the way he poses.
Also, could the Red Hood's presence in the game signify that he is the mysterious Arkham Knight? We'll find out more down the line I suppose, and maybe via this week's SDCC. For more information, visit the source post at Batman-news.
Batman: Arkham Knight is slated for release for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC sometime in 2015!
