VIDEO GAMES: Does The Latest ARKHAM KNIGHT Trailer Reveal Another Villain?

VIDEO GAMES: Does The Latest ARKHAM KNIGHT Trailer Reveal Another Villain?

Days ago at E3 we were treated to an amazing new trailer for the upcoming finale to Rocksteady's ARKHAM trilogy. The game boasts amazing graphics, voice acting, combat, and gameplay, but did the trailer also reveal yet another villain Batman will have to face? One eagle-eyed fan (me) thinks so.

After the release of the E3 trailer a couple days ago, being that the Arkham franchise is my favorite gaming franchise out there right now, I got into the habit of watching it over, and over again, going over every single second of amazing footage due to my highened excitment for the game. Long story short, during one of my hundreds of reviewing of the footage I noticed something interesting on the wall at about the 2:20 mark, which is when batman is fighting the unmanned tanks in the trailer. After he tears through most of the tanks, and starts lining up his shot to take out the last three, if you pause the video, and look at the wall just to the left of the batmobile you'll notice a very fimiliar symbol from last years Batman: Arkham Origins....the logo of none other then anarchy. Below I have included my photo evidence of this.

I know what you're thinking, and yes...this is very anticlimatic. I said a villain, I never said a good one. Now I recognize the fact that this could also just be a clever easter egg, or even some vandalism completely unrelated to the character, though due to the fact that he was in Origins just last year, and his whole trademark was an anarchy symbol spraypainted on the walls of gotham, I don't believe that. I think that a very easy explaination could be that when WB: Montreal started work on Origins that they could have decided to include some characters that they knew about being involved in Batman: Arkham Knight, which would have been in development for about two years at that point. Honestly I'm hoping that's the case, because I think anything meh from Origins that turned up in Knight would be amazing due to it being in rocksteady's hands. I will also include the trailer below so that you can see it in action, and also, because it's amazing.

So what do you think? Is he in it, is this an easter egg, or has ole koolaidbag lost his marbles? Any other characters unannounced that you would like to see? Tell me below.

This is koolaidbag signing out. May the force be with you, live long and prosper, and excelsior!

GuardianAngel - 6/16/2014, 8:01 PM
I hope they don't [frick] him up like in Arkham Origins.
Saga - 6/16/2014, 8:01 PM
Ugh. His subplot in Origins was really boring and the final fight was anticlimatic for me.

Good find though.
Blanka1212 - 6/16/2014, 8:15 PM
Uh, eagle eyed?

There's a video breakdown on YouTube that has all the Easter Eggs already out there.
koolaidbag - 6/16/2014, 8:17 PM
@Blanka1212 Yes, and it doesn't have this.

I caught that, he may be another side mission. Nice catch. :)
koolaidbag - 6/16/2014, 8:27 PM
@THEDARKKNIGHT1939 Thanks, fixed it!
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 6/16/2014, 8:28 PM
Nice : )

I'm pretty sure this means nothing. It's probably just some random thug that tagged a building because of all the chaos going on in the city.

Nice find but how is Anarky a bad villain?
Blanka1212 - 6/16/2014, 9:15 PM


I don't like people taking credit, and acting as if they were the ones that found something like this clown. And hold on a second--has seen the video in question, but claims this tidbit wasn't on there. Okay.
staypuffed - 6/16/2014, 9:25 PM
Shit! Good job.
koolaidbag - 6/16/2014, 9:30 PM
@Blanka1212 I have seen four, and none of them had this. I found this while watching the actual trailer, and saw no one had posted it, so guess what, I did. Chill out.
koolaidbag - 6/16/2014, 9:30 PM
@darkknight2149 Anarchy is fine as a character, but sucked in arkham origins.
mgeoff88 - 6/16/2014, 9:44 PM
Great catch!
TheAstoundingMan - 6/17/2014, 12:12 AM

Cool bro. Now please chill.

You should thank BatmanArkhamknight videos youtube page.. He made a video about this last week. in his trailor breakdown.
Missy - 6/17/2014, 3:58 AM
Yeah, BatmanArkhamVideos did a video about easter eggs in the trailer/demon and he pointed out the supposed Anarky egg.

I don't believe this is related to Anarky but just to... well, anarchy. It's not like Anarky has an original symbol to begin with.
Missy - 6/17/2014, 3:58 AM
Demon? I meant demo.
HavocPrime - 6/17/2014, 5:19 AM
Could be just a nod to the connection between the games, but time will tell.
koolaidbag - 6/17/2014, 5:25 AM
@BATMANx I would give him credit if I found it through him, but I found this on my own, so while I may not have been the first to find it, I was the first to post it here. So as far as this sites concerned, it's my find. If someone else posted it, or the arkham video on this, then it would be theirs/arkham videos find, and therefore they would be credited, but I found this without them, so it's mine to take credit for, at least on this site anyways.
OpticBlastWins - 6/17/2014, 5:52 AM
Nice find. Yeah i thought those most wanted or whatever they called them were mostly underwhelming
koolaidbag - 6/17/2014, 7:04 AM
Oh my god....I just made front page.....thank you guys for thumbing up the article!
FirstAvenger - 6/17/2014, 7:46 AM
Nice job, @koolaid.
yossarian - 6/17/2014, 8:11 AM
Aren't these games all about stealth? He's in a [frick]ing tank.
GL - 6/17/2014, 10:06 AM
@Yos, they have stealth levels but it's not all about stealth. And in this one all hell breaks loose so a tank is needed when it's just Batman by himself
Parkerluckpersonified - 6/17/2014, 10:08 AM
I'm not loving the battank, hopefully i won't take up large portions of the game
Parkerluckpersonified - 6/17/2014, 10:09 AM
looks like it handles like a sega game from the 90s.
Space - 6/17/2014, 5:27 PM
nice find
