Robin and Red Hood All But Confirmed for Batman: Arkham Knight

There’s no official confirmation as of yet, but based on a myriad of clues that have leaked online – or are on display right now at San Diego Comic-Con – we can almost be guaranteed that Robin and Red Hood will both be appearing in next year’s Batman: Arkham Knight! Red Hood will actually be playable too, according to information about a leaked DLC from Gamestop.

First clue is this video made of pictures from a toy booth at Comic-Con, showing off a Red Hood action figure and a Robin prototype figure. Robin, as Tim Drake, appeared in Arkham City, and was the star of his own follow-up DLC. So he’s a pretty major character. And I was hoping he’d be back in Arkham Knight. So that’s awesome.

Red Hood is probably Jason Todd. He’s got a pretty cool costume in the game.

If you don’t believe that video – or don’t have the time or energy to watch it, then check out these pictures.

Boom, Robin!

Believe my joy

And what was that about the Red Hood being a Gamestop exclusive? Boom! Eat that!

Curse you, Gamestop!

Neither of these is an official announcement, sure, but c’mon! Look at that evidence! This game just gets better and better. Now I just need to buy a better graphics card so I can get the PC version…which wouldn’t allow me to play the Red Hood DLC. Life is unfair.

    It’s kind of funny to me that the Robin design is amazing yet the red hood design is…meh. I mean the design is bad at all but it just looks unprofessional, like a fan made it, not the same person who made the previous designs. At least they are acknowledging red hood’s existence, red hood to me has always been the most interesting of the bat family so i’m glad he’s there

    • I rather like the design – at least in the Gamestop add. It’s a new take on the character, not just a complete recreation of his comic look, and I approve of that kind of new thinking.

        I’m not saying it should be a copy and paste i’m just not really digging the grey and the helmet. I can see why some people like it though
