Inspired by the Deadlight quick look at the moment and the moment a character refers to the protagonist as "Mr Wayne", and Vinny whispers "...its Batman...!" and Brad agrees that it would be awesome if it is.

Has there ever been a game that had some IP license or recognisable figure in it and just totally kept it secret until it was revealed as part of a plot twist? Obviously it doesn't really make much economic sense, but it would be an awesome narrative twist.

I can't really think of an example of it happening. Burt Reynolds making a surprise appearing in Saint Row 3 playing himself was pretty great.

@Smithers Well Shin Megami Tensei:Nocturne had Dante from DMC in the game.

That would be cool, but like you say, putting a ton of money into a licensed game and then hiding the selling point from everyone would be crazy.

I dunno, did NBA Jam announce Sonic Youth and the Beastie Boys?

Basically I just want a videogame where you find out at the end that you were Batman all along. Also I want life to be like that.

I play every videogame assuming the main character is batman and everything takes place in the matrix... it's how I roll

Bruce Wayne doesn't use guns. That is all I have to say on that.

So far as a general reveal like that, I don't think it's ever been done beyond a small cameo or something.

Haha, just happened to pop in after you posted. I wasn't being sarcastic, either, I thought maybe it was (haven't played it). :P
