Newest Batman: Arkham City Trailer Shows A More Formidable Riddler

Submitted by on Tuesday, 12 July 20112 Comments

1920x1200 Riddler 221 800 500 80 Newest Batman: Arkham City Trailer Shows A More Formidable RiddlerIn the Batman universe The Riddler has always (with the exception of the Hush series) been somewhat of a punching bag. A swollen bag of hot air, consistently talking a big game only to fall well short of fulfilling his grandiose diatribes.

In Batman: Arkham City, Rocksteady’s anticipated sequel, however Edward Nigma will be taking on a darker, more sinister role.

Hungarian website PC Guru received this exclusive look at The Riddler’s more involved role in the Dark Knight’s upcoming (Oct. 18 US/Oct. 21 UK) venture.

When we last saw The Riddler in Batman: Arkham Asylum he was a bubbling mess of a man having again been shown his intellectual place below that of the Dark Knight Detective. His trophies and queries while interesting and mildly thought-provoking amounted to little more than a distraction from the main quest.

Well nowadays Nigma’s inferiority complex is culminating in the taking of hostages. It would appear that our cute villain has become a bonafide psychopath.

We know that The Riddler trophies will be returning for Batman: Arkham City but this time around solving the brain-teasers will hold the lives of innocents in the balance.

Let us know what you think about the proposition of a darker, more involved Riddler.
