It's Drake. But that doesn't make it any less horrendous. Really, the only Robin that even kind of resembles that is Damian, but not really.

I have nothing against that Robin look. The only problem is his hair, but the costume looks awesome honestly. I just hope they give us a Nightwing and a Batgirl (cassandra cain please) later on.

Impossible, we have Barbara whose acting as the Oracle so Grayson would be nightwing and the current robin would be drake.

In any case I'm not thrilled by it either.

The Arkham series has been, atmospherically speaking, very dark so far. Robin is traditionally a very bright, silly character when placed in comparison with Batman, (even if terrible things end up happening to them) and since they didn't want to use Nightwing, this was the result. I'll reserve my judgment, these are the people who somehow made Scarecrow even MORE terrifying.

I'll admit that they were clearly inspired by Cole MacGrath, though...

Huh, you know, if you just add in some bright shiny colors and Batman Forever's rubber batnipples, Arkham City Robin looks like Chris O Donnell's Robin.

Which is exactly why I think this Robin looks terrible and now that I know this Robin is Drake and not Damian that makes it worse.

It's definitely Tim Drake. He's the only one who uses a Bo Staff.

Happy Fun Robin doesn't work in this setting, but they still wanted to use Robin. I don't see anything wrong. This isn't even the comic book canon anyway, and I would have thought you guys would have expected something like this.

That's probably the best look Robin has ever had.

Whoa.

I didn't expect this much hate for Robin. As for me, i like the look of Arkham City's Robin. Plus it's still too early to judge on which Robin it is.

The usual Robin looks out-dated and fruity... his new design looks darker and fits the tone of the game. I'll take it over any other Robin design I've seen, including NightWing or whatever his name is.

So.... if that's an exclusive character for Best Buy pre-orders... what do Gamestop pre-orders get? ... Nightwing?


Also, someone got bored and made a colored version. I myself can't complain with it~

Didn't expect? Robin has always been hated by the mostly non-comic readers and the hatred has been 9000x worse ever since Nolan released his movies.

What I didn't expect is Robin to be included, in Arkham Asylum Robin wasn't mentioned, didn't get a profile (even Maxie Zeus and the Rat Catcher managed to get one) so I assumed the Arkham Asylum creators were Robin haters as well. So colour me surprised to see this news.

Also the Robin is Tim Drake this has been confirmed by the creators there's also an alternative Red Robin costume. As for the looks, I think the costume looks great but the buzz cut makes him look like a hooligan.

He was mentioned, actually, though not by name. The Joker brings him up a couple times as a way of questioning Batman's sexuality.

Didn't know there were fans of the Chris O' Donnell Robin.

Since someone was wondering what Gamestop would get since Best Buy gets Robin/Red Robin, a Black Mask themed map, and some other train map. Apparently, it's a Joker themed map.

Gee, Gamestop sure gets a lot, huh?
