Oh look who we have here…
GameStop had an announcement planned for a major game that eventually leaked – as they are want to do – but this is truly exceptional. It seems that Batman: Arkham Knight will feature a Red Hood Story Pack that lets you play as the “ruthless vigilante” the Red Hood. The pack is a pre-order bonus for those who order from GameStop and was featured alongside the previously revealed Harley Quinn Story Pack when the above image was leaked to Batman News.
The Red Hood is a rather interesting character because it was the Joker’s first alias before his transformation into a madman. The mantle was taken up by various criminals afterwards but only stuck with one for the longest – Jason Todd, the second Robin who died and later became a major adversary for Batman. Nowadays though, the Red Hood fights alongside the Wayne Family despite keeping his roguish demeanour.
This only adds more fuel to rumours that the Arkham Knight is indeed Todd. We’ll find out for sure when Batman: Arkham Knight releases in 2015 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
