Single Status Update
Zsasz apparently has quite a few unused voiceclips in Arkham Knight, including lines for being in the car after the ending reveal
Did they just nix him in favor of Pyg? Because I wish they just went Zsasz
I can't remember for certain if they nixed him for Pyg, but he was certainly planned, and got very far into development. Not only did they find the voice lines, a AK model was made and used for a bio pic:
The speculation is he was scrapped for Pyg, but there's nothing concrete.
While I personally don't regret getting Pyg instead (introduced me to a new villain I didn't know about), I do wish that Zsasz had been giving more than just a Riddler trophy and a brief easter egg.
Though tbf, I feel like I could say the same for most of the villains in that game. Giving most of the rouge gallery side missions instead of either making them more integrated into the main plot or just making them their own section was a big missed opportunity imo. Made the story feel loose.
I wish all of them had gotten the same treatment the DLC missions did as those used the sectioning method and felt more concrete as a result.
