Rocksteady have announced that Red Hood will be a playable character in the pre-order exclusive DLC for the upcoming entry in the Arkham series, Batman: Arkham Knight.
While this appears to put a pin in the theory of Jason Todd being the titular mystery man, the Arkham Knight, it does;t really confirm anything but the inclusion of a “ruthless vigilante” by the moniker of Red Hood. This does appear to be fairly conclusive, but I will hold my breath until the game comes out.
Personally, I have been against the idea of Jason Todd as Arkham Knight since the theory first surfaced, finding it an odd and illogical progression of the story that has been playing out since Arkham Asylum. Though it wouldn’t surprise me, I pray that the developers do something a little more original (personally, I’d enjoy a twist on the Hush mythos, but I admit that this fits into the same category as Red Hood as theories go).
Whatever the plot turns out to be, I have faith that Rocksteady’s team will deliver something brilliant, as their entries in the franchise so far have been stellar and remain to me the most re-playable games I’ve had the fortune of playing.
What is quite exciting to me also, is the new redesign. While a little unnecessary, since Red Hood has a pretty solid design in the comics and the animated movie, the changes are welcome and further cement the Arkhamverse as it’s own entity, essentially giving total creative freedom to the developers since they only have their own canon to worry about now.
Also, the news of a playable Harley Quinn, though not surprising, is very exciting nonetheless. Although frankly, I’d rather play a campaign as alternative characters since I felt like Arkham City had a big Nightwing shaped hole as far as campaigns are concerned.
But overall, this game is looking to be more and more fun with each snippet of information we get and I for one am looking forward to being as intrigued and surprised as I have been with the franchise so far.
I suspect the redesign, in addition to giving Red Hood an actual hood, was to differentiate him from Deathstroke, who wears a very similar helmet to Todd’s Hood in “Origins”.
And hasn’t Harley been confirmed as playable since the first trailer? Pretty much all of them have ended with the “pre-order now to play as Harley Quinn” stinger. Frankly I’m not too fussed about her though, Harley’s never been a character that’s interested me, except in “Injustice”, I really liked her there, because she had a narrative arc that was interesting to me, one that the tie-in comic underlines nicely.
I second the hope for more Nightwing though. He was my favourite Challenge Map characteer, and I hope we’ll see him in the story mode along with Robin, ideally in a brief playable capacity.
I’m curious as to how Red Hood’s missions will fit in, perhaps as an aside like Catwoman’s or more like a prologue/epilogue. Interesting that he has the bloodied bat-emblem on his chest (or is it a robin?) echoing the Arkham Knight’s “A” symbol. I’d also like the Knight to not be Jason Todd, but with this revelation I’m curious as to what role Todd will fill in seeing as his motives align so well with the Knight’s. An accomplice? A rival? A mentor? I’m more and more excited everytime something new comes out.
