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 think I'm going to dig this version of the Penguin
I hope this penguin knows Kung Fu and other fighting styles like the Penguin from The Batman animated series.
Arkham City is full of iconic Batman villains. The possibilities for memorable moments keep getting better.
I appreciate the heads up that Penguin is confirmed, but where are the pictures, **BRAAAHHHH**!
I can't wait to see the penguin in the night
I've seen photos of the Penguin, but he seems a little, misshapened.
An overgrown parade balloon isn't the best look for him at all o_O
awesome, I hope Warner Bros. make it official
