Anime Batman skin announced for WBPlay members in AK

Postby jifw52 » Mar 20th, 2015, 12:56 am

Warner Bros. confirms that there is a playable Anime Batman skin in Arkham Knight.

Warner Bros. sent the above image to all WBPlay members via an Arkham Knight newsletter (email). This confirms that there is an exclusive Batman character skin for all WBPlay (formerly WBID) members, called Anime Batman, but is more widely known as Batman's appearance from the animated film Batman: Gotham Knight.

As a thank you to all of our fans, we are excited to announce that all WBPlay Members will receive a bonus, exclusive alternate character skin. To redeem the iconic Batsuit from the hit animated feature Batman: Gotham Knight, just log in to your WBPlay account in Batman: Arkham Knight when you play the game. If you don't have an account yet you can sign up here


What's your opinion of using WBPlay to unlock a skin, after previous WBID connection issues occurred for some people with Arkham Origins and Injustice?

It looks disgusting is what I think.

Here's a better looking image of the skin. Sorry for my awful screenshot skills. Image

Correction: It is ugly, not disgusting. Still, the fact that they're going for uncommon designs for Batman is pretty cool. Also, this is from Gotham Knight, so maybe we could get something from the Dark Knight trilogy?

But.....but there has to be some proof that the email was real! Because I have no legitimate source (yet), and I can't make email a source! :P The only other person who reported the news is a YouTuber (CabooseXL, I think that's his name), and that occurred after my article write-up on this forum!

True, but it's not like you could have faked the image. But hey, it's your choice, nothing wrong with either.

It looks awful though its it's interesting to see some more diverse skins. Though I'm not interested in the skin, I'm still very frustrated with the use of WBplay especially seeing as it never workred with Origins for me.

Who cares about these garbage skins. Show us Batman 89 and a Dark Knight trilogy one already.

Okay, taking the time to look at it more, it's not entirely ugly. I just hate the torso and belt. The model itself looks great, though.

Anyway, jifw52, you said that this WBPlay is the old WBID, right? Cause I didn't register for this WBPlay, but I had a WBID account. Didn't get anything though. I'd like to have this just for collection's sake.

Yes, WBPlay is your WBID. On the WBPlay button on the official AK website, it says:
If you have a WBID (Warner Bros. ID), you're already a WBPlay member.

Basically, just put in your WBID username/password and you're good to go!

Tried it just a while ago. Still haven't gotten an email for this, though. Will just have to wait, I suppose.

Yep, just received my email, i totally dont like it, but hey, its free.
Also im glad to see they are expanding their horizons, this could easily mean we are getting the Nolan skins or the other movies skins.
