Scarecrow may not be a big feature or feature at all in Batman: Arkham City.
According to Rocksteady’s Paul Crocker said:
“In Batman: Arkham Asylum we had the whole Scarecrow thing, and we didn’t want to do that again we wanted something different.”
Now, this might just mean that if Scarecrow features there won’t be the same sort of encounters that occurred in Batman: Arkham Asylum or it might even mean that due to the high number of villains that will be appearing this time round, there just isn’t room for Scarecrow to terrorise Batman.
Robin, a more divisive sidekick has not been brought into existence since he first joined forces with Batman. DC have tried changing Robin so much to fit in with his times from Boy Wonder to Badass to Girl Wonder back to Boy Wonder. Point, there have been many Robins.
Anyway, back to the news that Robin will be a playable character in Batman: Arkham City. It must be stressed that this news has not come from official sources but instead an innocent shop listing on the Best Buy website.
So, it seems Best Buy has become the new villain when it comes to games leaks. I’ll contact Rocksteady to try and get some sense of this.
