Is Lady Shiva in 'Batman: Arkham Origins?'

Could the martial arts master be in the upcoming video game? A recent leak seems to have the answer.

The achievements and trophies were recently leaked for Batman: Arkham Origins over at IGN. As many of you know, this is an excellent way to get little teasers about what the game has to offer and who you may encounter along the journey. While reviewing the full list, one reaaaaaaaaally stood out to us.

Battle Shiva without taking any damage? Unless there's a "Shiva" we're totally forgetting about, all signs seem to point to that being the very deadly and very awesome LADY SHIVA! In a game full of talented assassins and mercenaries, she'd of course make a great addition and has tons of potential when it comes to showing off just how talented Wayne truly is when it comes to hand-to-hand. Or, perhaps she'll be too skilled and it'll force you into using gear and the environment to beat her.

Only time will tell, but right now it definitely seems like she made the cut! Viners, would you be thrilled to see Lady Shiva as one of the assassins in the game?

This confirms Riddler as well.

Awesome Deathstroke, Tim Drake, Lady Shiva, Deadshot, I'm loving the lineup for this game.

Why don't they just tell the way it ends while they're at it. Just like arkham city there are spoilers everywhere in titles of articles. This sucks.

@cyborg6971: Fine here you go, this is how the game ends: Batman lives and defeats all of the assassins. Black mask loses his crime empire, and Batman now has several new super-villains to deal with instead. They decide to house all of his new villains like The Joker in Arkham Asylum for mental rehabilitation.

@dctv3363: Nice sarcasm. I'm talking about cameos and other players that will be in the game. There will be no surprises at all.

Why can't the title of the article be "Another character revealed by achievement trophies"?

YES!!!!

True because then if you dont want to know then you dont have to click on it.

@tikhunt: That's what I'm saying. Keep the spoilers in the article. You don't have to have batman detective skills to figure it out, the way it's titled.

Posted by Marionettegeist

@cyborg6971: Yeah, I agree with you about the spoilers they really shouldn't put the spoiler in the name of the forum/article. Though I can't stop myself from reading them either way. I have no self-control with these things.

YUS!

A Batman game with martial arts combat gameplay and a bunch of assassins after Bats? Face it, we all saw this one coming.

Posted by TheIncredibleSuperHulk8642

Awesome

Posted by ComicKing7

This also means that Robin will be playable.

Posted by Marionettegeist

@comicking7: We already knew that. He's only playable in multilayer though, there's plenty of match footage on youtube.

Posted by frozenedge

It would make sense if Shiva was involved since Black Mask hired assassins and Lady Shiva is an assassin afterall

Words can not express my joy.

Tim? I'm pretty sure that the Robin in multiplayer is Dick

Edited by roboadmiral

Awesome. One thing I felt the last two Arkham games were sorely missing were epic hand-to-hand duels. Batman's martial arts showdowns in the comics, animated series, and films are always epic. I'm glad they're finally taking a swing at it (pun totally intended) with Deathstroke and Shiva.

had no interest...until now

They put Copperhead for crying out loud of course Shiva is in this B!$T%A%

@dctv3363: Man, I thought for sure he'd kick the bucket in this prequel

Posted by RulerOfThisUniverse

Awesome.

@tikhunt: Tim Drake isn't in the game Robin is Dick Grayson, Tim's character skin is though.

Posted by viin

yay hopefully she has a cool design definitely gonna be one of my favorite characters

Posted by MonsterStomp

Sweet as.

Edited by Jayc1324

This was a dumb way to tell us shiva is in the game, but anyway I didnt know i could get anymore excited about this game than i already was, but this did it.

Now i just wonder how the gameplay is going to be in her boss fight.

Posted by Mbecks14

Awesome! More lady-villains!

Posted by superior_prime_maybe

Oh yeah!!

but i wonder why is copperhead getting more lime light than her? I mean she is officially an assassin

Because they want to build hype over the new character. Everyone will accept Lady Shiva, but with new characters like Copperhead it can have the potential of going either way.

@comicking7:

If you watch the multiplayer trailer you see him.

Edited by tikhunt

@tikhunt: Tim Drake isn't in the game Robin is Dick Grayson, Tim's character skin is though.

That's what I meant, dont care too much about Dick and seeing as how he has Tim's fighting style and I already preordered it with the Tim skin I'm calling him Tim.

Posted by Lvenger

Very nice, Shiva is another candidate for an assassin that can push Batman to the edge of his limits given her legendary level of skill. Hopefully she isn't beaten too easily in the game.

That's real coolio.

Posted by patrat18

About time. Had me worried for a sec.

Posted by 2cool4fun

I think it was obvious she would be in it, i mean come on, it's lady freaking shiva, there is no way they could put firefly but not here, plus we already knew that there were going to be 2 female characters, copperhead is 1, so it's only natural for her to be 2.

Edited by NukeA6

You just had to put the spoiler in the title, making it unavoidable other than avoiding the entire site. Why not mention who the final boss is while you're at it?

So who's idea was to make this spoiler unavoidable by throwing it on the title?

You do realize the title is posing a question, right? Seeing as this is a game about deadly assassins, there has ALWAYS been speculation over whether Lady Shiva is in it. This title is saying it answers that question -- it doesn't even point to yes or no. From there, you CHOSE to click it and get that answer when no one forced you to. For all you knew, this could have been talking about a quote/conversation leaked from a developer who said, "Sorry, she's not in it" or even a full list of characters and this was informing people not to get their hopes up.

At any rate, if you actually think knowing she's a part of the game is "spoiler" to you, I apologize. But I don't view it as one. Knowing the details of her role and how it concludes with her --- that's what I'd be upset about knowing before the game releases.

@dctv3363: I'm sure Riddler was mentioned somewhere before about being in Origins. Plus, how would the devs implement collectables otherwise? :P
