With the achievement list of the game being leaked on Exophase, Riddler Trophy is reportedly one among the trophy list, for players to collect, according to Coming Soon. The report also notes that apart from Riddler the other assassin is Lady Shiva, who was created by Dennis O'Neil and Ric Estrada and happens to be one of the most talented assassins in the DC Comic Universe.
The game also introduces multiplayer mode in the series for the first time. GameNGuide says that the multiplayer fight in the game is between Batman's better gadgets and stealth pitted against enemy firepower.
The Batman in the game is younger and has completed only two years as a crime-fighter of Gotham City and is yet to earn the trust of the police as a superhero.
