The lights are on
Eagle-eyed gamers caught a glimpse of Penguin's Iceberg Lounge in Arkham City's reveal trailer, leading to speculation that the iconic character will make an appearance in the game. Thanks to some new scans that have shown up on the Internet, it appears that speculation is true.
ArkhamCity.co.uk has posted magazine scans of an upcoming preview from the Australian Sunday Herald, which contains the first glimpse of a decidedly human-looking Penguin. In the preview, Rocksteady's Dax Ginn also explains the developer's take on character. "The way that penguin has always been portrayed is as quite an aristocratic, well-spoken gentleman who's got these twisted delusions of grandeur. So we've made him a really horrible, nasty piece of work - but still with the delusion of grandeur. He dresses well, but in a poor taste, and we've made him this brutish, brutal guy, but also key into collection fascination that he's had throughout the years."
We're still awaiting official confirmation from Warner Bros. and will update the story accordingly, but the new info appears to be legit.

I'm so happy to hear that Penguin is in Arkham City. He has always been one of my favorite antagonists in the Batman universe.
Very nice. Looking forward to it. :)
this would be a great addition.
This game just keeps getting better and it isn't even out yet! I can only imagine the things Rocksteady have yet to reveal and of course will not reveal to allow plenty of secrets.
When this comes out, I want to see them debate.
The roster is looking amazing :)
Can't wait, and since it releases two days after my birthday, what a great present it will make.
I'm feeling the look, even if I do wish it looked more like the Batman: TAS Penguin. Ah well.
More importantly though, one of these magazines needs to deliver a picture of Mr. Freeze! He looked awesome in the concept art from Arkham Asylum.
Awesome! the more baddys the better.
I knew Penguin was gonna make it in the game.
This will be the best title based on a superhero comic book ever made.
