Here’s why Nightwing has a glider that looks like Fortnite in Gotham Knights

Gotham Knights has a large sandbox for players to explore, and depending on which hero you choose, all Batman’s protectors have a unique way to roam the city. The Red Hood harnesses mystical powers to create spiritual platforms from which he can jump, Batgirl has a more traditional sleigh mechanic, and Nightwing takes to the skies with a device that fans jokingly refer to as a Fortnite glider.

In a Discord A&A session, Creative Director Patrick Redding explained the inspiration behind the Gotham Knights nicknamed “The Flying Trapeze” glider. The developer Warner Bros. Montreal drew inspiration from some of the classic versions of the Nightwing comic book series where he used several jet-powered gliders that replicated his circus upbringing.
