We take a look at some of the awesome character design in Rocksteady Studio's Batman: Arkham City, including the controversial new design for the recently unveiled Boy Wonder.

Opinions over the recently unveiled design for Robin in Batman: Arkham City have been largely diverse with many calling the updated Robin outfit consistent to the overall feel of the game series while some found it reminiscent of Joel Schumacher's horrendous Batman films.

In defence for the design, Rocksteady Studios senior concept artist Kan Muftic has provided more insight into his vision for Tim Drake in the game, as well as a fresh new concept art of the Boy Wonder at the official forum of the game.

"We wanted to create a Robin that players would identify as a contemporary character and move away from the traditional “Boy Wonder” image that most people know. Our vision of Robin is the one of a troubled young individual that is calm and introverted at times but very dangerous and aggressive if provoked. The shaved head is inspired by cage fighters, because we thought that Robin might be doing that in his spare time to keep him on his toes. Still, we kept all the classic trademarks of Robin’s appearance, such as the red and yellow colors of his outfit, the cape and the mask.
We really hope that people will discover our Robin as one of their new favorite characters in the Batman universe. He is back and he means business."

As much as the concept art of the character seemed different from the earlier unveiled image, we can easily envisioned where the completed design came from. For those who missed out on our earlier coverage, here's a look at the image unveiled earlier.

And here's a collection of other concept art pieces that was unveiled at the official page of the game.
