Catwoman Announced as Playable Character in ‘Batman: Arkham City’ [Video]

Between the inclusion of the Riddler and Penguin, Batman: Arkham City’s been getting loads of new villains reveals lately, but anti-hero Catwoman trumps them all as a full-on playable character. Rocksteady Studios marketing game manager Dax Ginn gave Gamespot the inside scoop on Selina Kyle’s newly-announced playable status, explaining that she’s substantially more than a simple Batman re-skin, acting as an independent gaming experience with an all-new fighting and upgrade systems. What’s more, Catwoman’s story will intertwine with Batman’s, fleshing out the game for further hours of gameplay.As a capeless criminal/crimefighter, Catwoman will rely on a grappling hook and her patented claws to navigate Akrham City’s massive environments. Fighting also looks pretty purrrrrfect as Catwoman’s acrobatic moves are shown coupled with a whip, bolas and other goodies. I’m not sure how (or if) Catwoman will replicate Batman’s “detective mode,” but maybe that’s what those huge goggles of hers are for?
