First Footage of Robin the Boy Wonder Surfaces

Thanks to a GameStop UK promotional trailer, we are graced with the first gameplay footage of the sidekick Robin, a playable character in the upcoming Batman: Arkham City.

To play as Robin in the game, you must pre-order the game at GameStop in the UK and Best Buy in the U.S. For pre-ordering, you get not only Robin the character, but two challenge maps centered around the “Boy Wonder”. You will also gain two alternate costumes for Robin, taking you back to his past outfits. In the footage below we get a great look at his combat style and move set, with Robin performing acrobatic moves all over the screen.

Batman: Arkham City is set to release October 18th in North America and the 21st in Europe. Will you be placing your pre-order at either of these two places so that you can play as Robin? Let us know in the comments below.
