As you know Robin is going to make an appearance in Batman: Arkham City, last month we got our first look at the character, and a few details which you can check out here. I really like the look that they ended up giving the character, which is available through an exclusive Best Buy pre-order. A new image of the character has been released and the characters concept artist Kan Muftic gave some additional information of the character explaining,
We wanted to create a Robin that players would identify as a contemporary character and move away from the traditional 'Boy Wonder' image that most people know. Our vision of Robin is the one of a troubled young individual that is calm and introverted at times but very dangerous and aggressive if provoked. The shaved head is inspired by cage fighters, because we thought that Robin might be doing that in his spare time to keep him on his toes. Still, we kept all the classic trademarks of Robin’s appearance, such as the red and yellow colors of his outfit, the cape and the mask. We really hope that people will discover our Robin as one of their new favorite characters in the Batman universe. He is back and he means business.
They definitely brought Robin into the spotlight as a badass, which is awesome. This is a Robin I can get behind. What do you think?
