Rocksteady has been hinting at the Penguin’s appearance in Batman: Arkham City for a while now, without going as far as to actually confirm his existence in the much-anticipated sequel. However, the developer’s marketing manager Dax Ginn has changed all that by apparently confirming the potbellied aristocrat’s appearance in the game to the Australian Sunday Herald. It makes sense considering previously released trailers for the game showed images of his Iceberg Club.
Ginn spoke to the newspaper about how the development team tried to portray the evil nose biter, and also provided them with an image to go by (seen above.)
“The way that Penguin has always been portrayed is as quite an aristocratic, well-spoken gentleman who’s got these twisted delusions of grandeur. So we’ve made him a really horrible, nasty piece of work – but still with the delusion of grandeur. He dresses well, but in a poor taste, and we’ve made him this brutish, brutal guy but also key into collection fascination that he’s had through out the years.”
We look forward to coming across this delusional madman when the game releases.
