For a little while, Best Buy had updated their Batman: Arkham City listing to include the following bit of information:
Get a Best Buy exclusive downloadable Robin character so you can play as Robin in two challenge maps when you preorder Batman: Arkham City
They pulled it down pretty quickly but some spry interneters over at ArkhamCity.co.uk grabbed a screenshot. I guess that sort of confirms Robin's presence in the game, even if this is the only place he shows up. Are any of you Dick Grayson/Tim Drake/Damian Wayne fans extra psyched now?
Personally, a couple of challenge maps aren't enough to get me to shop at Best Buy, even if I do have a soft spot for the character. Let's hope that the Boy Wonder shows up in some other form in the game, or at the very least Warner Bros. pulls a Rockstar and puts all preorder DLC up for sale a couple weeks after the game comes out. I also wonder if other retailers will get additional character challenge maps, like Batgirl or Catwoman. Anyway, I'm sure that after this mistake, we'll get more specifics soon.
