Anarky set for Batman: Arkham Origins appearance
Anarky has been confirmed as one of the villains set to appear within Batman: Arkham Origins, although will assume his typical “anti-corporate, anti-government” role.
“Ultimately, [Anarky] is an anti-corporate, anti-government… technically an anti-villain as well,” creative director Eric Holmes explained to the PlayStation Blog. “He’s a guy who kind of does bad things but believes he’s doing the right thing.
“He doesn’t like big corporations trying to control our lives or the government trying to tell us what to do. And he believes those institutions should get kicked out, and wants to take them down.”
For those unfamiliar with the character, Holmes recommends not to investigate as he believes it would ruin the surprises that the game has in store.
Although, he discusses what Anarky’s narrative entails: “He’s planted a bunch of bombs in these institutions in Gotham, and Batman’s gotta go there and he defuses those bombs. And further on, in the Most Wanted campaign for him, Batman can hunt him down to where he’s headquartered and take him on.”
