Riddler Revealed in New Arkham City Trailer
Poised before a Bond villian-style bank of TV monitors, the Riddler waits. From this green-tinted vantage, Batman’s iconic adversary can monitor the progress of his various traps and riddles. Like Arkham’s version of Jigsaw from the Saw series, except with a bowler hat in place of a creepy mask, the supervillian is intent on killing people in clever, roundabout ways. Schematics and equations flit by in the trailer, suggesting a keen, twisted intelligence. The Riddler makes repeated reference to besting Batman in a test of wits.
As the Caped Crusader, it’s your job to rescue the hapless Gothamites stuck in the Riddler’s traps. You’ll be racing against time and the churn of the deadly saw blades, hopefully swooping in at the last minute to save a falling victim from death by dismemberment. The challenges created by the question-mark-festooned maniac won’t be part of Arkham City’s main story, but the clip below is a testament to their terror.
