He's design seems to fit perfectly in the Arkham universe.

So far, Batman, Catwoman, Robin, and Nightwing are playable characters.

I'm hoping the the campaign only has the bit of Catwoman in it. Robin and Nightwing hopefully are just attached to challenge modes.

He's ugly, but cool.

I want the Robin >.<

That's Nightwing alright.

#4 Posted by Rhaknar (5940 posts) -

i have no interest in playing as anyone except Batman (or with any of the alt costumes) :/ Especially if its not part of the story

#5 Posted by uniform (1830 posts) -

Looking forward to see him in action. I really wish this game had Cassandra Cain. : (

#6 Posted by MachoFantastico (4290 posts) -

A fan of the character, but at this point why not add pretty much everyone. The amount of characters Rocksteady have added to this game over the original worries me a little, as Rhaknar said, I play a game called Batman: Arkham City to play as Batman.

ugh, Emo-wing. He seriously has a Pete Wentz thing going on with his hair.

#8 Posted by phrosnite (3517 posts) -

Is he from Japan?

#9 Posted by EchoEcho (805 posts) -

@phrosnite: That's the first thing I thought, too...

I really like Nightwing, though, so I have absolutely no problem with him being in the game.

I fucking wish.

Interesting. This game looks to be a lot different then AA.

#12 Posted by MooseyMcMan (9717 posts) -

Am I the only person who likes Batman best when his only "side kick" is Alfred? He doesn't need 18 Robins, Nightwings, or Oracles/Bat-girls.

Oh well. Won't detract from the game, so whatever. BATMAN.

I'm not a fan of that look, but it's not so bad...

#14 Posted by Snail (8465 posts) -

Honestly I I'll just be glad if I can kick some ass as Nightwing, so yay!

Agreed.

Arkham City is just trying to find their place in all of this, I think it is okay for the game, comics not to much

That would have been awesome, but I'd have preferred a red hood section. Any chance of me playing red hood would be good.

#17 Posted by awe_stuck (800 posts) -

He's definitely gay enough. They did a great job

Well they got to save some characters for a third game...I think Damian, Jason, Cassandra, and the rest of BoP can be in the third game lol

That would hurt it more than help. I know I hate the bat brats....

Stop making fun of his hair (has similar hair).

So are all users with Mega Man icons crass idiots or just the two of you?

#24 Posted by Subjugation (4693 posts) -

Reminds me of when Peter Parker went all emo.

#25 Posted by TheGreatGuero (9130 posts) -

Just seeing him makes me want to laugh.

#26 Posted by Aegon (5117 posts) -

Do you guys all have buzz cuts or something?

Batman has had like 4 Robins

In this game

Tim Drake = Robin

Dick Grayson = Nightwing

I agree. It's getting closer to LEGO Batman at this point.
#31 Posted by niamahai (1402 posts) -

I am gay for Richard Grayson. So will you.

#32 Posted by ryanwho (12082 posts) -

Im hoping this is all prelude to being able to play as Red Hood and kick some dudes off buildings.

#33 Posted by dudeglove (7241 posts) -

Ugh, why does the unreal engine make everything look as though it's covered in a thin film of grease?

#34 Posted by sungahymn (981 posts) -

Nightwing joined the goths apparently.

#35 Posted by Bestostero (2758 posts) -

@Doctorchimp: I like everyone but Damian. I hate him with a passion.

#36 Posted by Hector (3346 posts) -

Here is the full body design. I like it!

#37 Edited by Delta_Ass (3231 posts) -

Why does he have the hairstyle of a Japanese pop star?

#38 Posted by sickVisionz (1268 posts) -

I like how he's not crazy super Gears of War overmuscled. I wish the Batman character models were like that.

Oh jeebs that hair is soooooooooooo terrible.

Batman: Arkham City - Game of 1000 skins.

#41 Posted by Bestostero (2758 posts) -

hate the hair, and the escrima sticks look weird...but other than that, im glad Nightwing made it, he and Barbara are definitely the best two that Bruce worked with.

#42 Posted by Bestostero (2758 posts) -

Just saw this, the Nightwing DLC will release on November 1st, and the Robin DLC will be on November 22 (unless you got it from preordering from Best Buy, like myself)

#43 Posted by Yanngc33 (4496 posts) -

Judging from the launch trailer, he may end up in the campaign...

#44 Posted by Rudyftw (554 posts) -

This would be perfect if Red Hood was in this.

Think about it.

He kills criminals and all of Arkham City is a haven for them. It would be like Christmas to him.

Maybe he'll make a cameo or be at the ending watching the events fold and it'll lead into a third installment :)

#46 Posted by SpiritGoat (127 posts) -

First thing I will do once getting him is turn him around and see if they made him live up to the title of "Best Ass In The DC Universe"

#47 Posted by HandsomeDead (11863 posts) -

I think I made out with that guy in a nightclub once.

That would be perfect man. Red Hood isn't campy at all either so it works.

@SpiritGoat: You just ruined this for me.

#49 Posted by ahgunsillyo (440 posts) -

At first, I thought, Oh, so that's why Metal Gear: Rising is taking so long. Rocksteady stole Raiden from Kojima.

Lame joke aside, I think it's pretty cool. They certainly adapted his look far more closely than they did Robin's look, and I find it more than slightly weird that Tim Drake seems to have bigger biceps than Dick Grayson in this game, but I've always really liked Nightwing as a character and am excited to see how his gameplay differs than that of the other playable characters in the game. And hopefully he'll get some pretty awesome alternate costumes as well. I hear he's getting his mulleted Animated Series look, so that's pretty great.

#50 Posted by Bestostero (2758 posts) -

@Rudyftw: They have to save some characters for the next game...keeping my fingers crossed for Birds of Prey, Batwoman, Question and any other of the great residents of Gotham :)
