Ubi Soft is today announcing that its new Batman game is to feature a brand new character, called Sin Tzu. Scheduled for release this autumn on PS2, Xbox and GameCube, Batman: The Rise of Sin Tzu will mark the first time a videogame has ever debuted a new Batman character, which isn't honestly as huge a first as the press release makes out.

Other characters set to feature in the "action packed" game will include Robin, Nightwing, Batgirl, Clayface, Scarecrow and Bane. Players will be able to take on the role of Batman, Robin, Nightwing or Batgirl across the game's 12 levels, and also team up with a pal in the two player co-operative mode.
