The trailer for “Gotham Knights” shows Batgirl in its first proper look
Gotham Knights are only three months away, and I am shocked I’m saying this. Officially announced at DC Fandom in August 2020, Gotham Knights was delayed. Fans were worried about the future, but updates stopped coming in. The game will be released on October 25, 2018.
Gotham Knights is a show that centers around Gotham, in which Bruce Wayne has died. Instead, Nightwing and Batgirl take over Gotham City’s protections. Robin, Robin, Red Hood, and Batgirl are the only ones who can do so. WB Games Montreal presented the first glimpse of Batgirl at work yesterday during San Diego Comic-Con.
Batgirl is the character’s spotlight and showcases her combat prowess. This includes her melee skills and a retractable nunchaku, which appears to be her weapon choice. Batgirl says in the voiceover that protecting people is in her blood. That’s who I am, regardless of what pseudonym I use. This is who I will always be. Gotham called me, and I answered.
You may remember that there was controversy over the character earlier in the year. Officially, the game’s synopsis stated that Batgirl/Barbara Gordon had overcome paralysis due to a gunshot injury by retraining. This is a dangerous stereotype that is widely discredited. This suggests that people can fix disabilities.
WB Games Montreal collaborated with AbleGamers to rethink the character. Between Knights’ hideout missions, Barbara will be completing rehabilitation exercises. Her Batgirl suit and regular clothing will now include a back brace.
Gotham Knights will be released on PlayStation 5 PC and Xbox series X/S. The original release date was set for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, but this version was canceled by Gotham Knights earlier in the year.
