What you see above is the many available costume changes you’ll find in the upcoming Arkham City, a sequel to a game that was far better than it had any business being, Arkham Asylum.
There are a host of wardrobes available and I’m trying to name them all. There’s Batman Beyond (which looks freaking awesome), obese Year One Batman (by which I mean Dark Knight Returns Batman, whoops), two I recognize but don’t know and are presumably from different comic series, and then obviously Batman the Animated series after that. Finally, the standard costume from the game is on the right. All that’s missing is Adam West Batman, but maybe they couldn’t get the licensing rights.
The problem? This is all DLC. Sure, it doesn’t add anything to the game and is just cosmetic, which has long been DLC’s excuse for existing in many instances, but remember when you could just play through the game and unlock these? Perhaps you can still do that, but if they’re only available via real life money or preorders, that would be pretty lame.
