Batman's Special Friend In Action

The seemingly endless drip-feed of character announcements for Batman: Arkham City is starting to get on my wick. Yes, we know there will be supervillains in the game. Can we not just play it now? Please? Also in there, Mr Marketing has slowly told us, are a raft of playable Bat-Chums, including Batman's diminutive protege Robin, who's been redesigned as a sort of scrappy thug. Why would anyone want to play as Robin instead of Batman? I mean, Robin. But you can see the speedy wee fellow in action below.

He's exclusive to pre-ordering the game from certain shops, in that horrible, fandom-exploiting way so many games embrace these days, but no doubt you'll be able to pay for him further down the line if you've had the temerity to buy the game from somewhere else.
