Earlier today, DC Entertainment confirmed that Robin would be a playable character in the upcoming game Batman: Arkham City.
Robin will be playable in the game’s challenge mode, in much the same way the Joker was available in Arkham Asylum.
Sadly, the only way to unlock Robin is by pre-ordering Arkham City from Best Buy. The Robin bonus content comes with two Robin-specific missions and an unlockable “red” Robin costume. No word yet on if there will be an option to attain Robin by other means down the road.
Look for Arkham City in store October 18th for the Playstation 3, PC, and Xbox 360.
Also check out the Catwoman trailer for Arkham City that dropped a few weeks ago. Really slick.
