In the intentions of Warner Bros., Gotham Knights is a very serious game. We already realize this thanks to the various interviews, which demonstrate how the title has been designed to be played over and over again. Despite this, even developers of dark and serious titles like this one like to digress a bit from time to time. And so, the WB Games division that deals with the development of this new title has decided to play a bit with us and with our nostalgia.
As you could have guessed from the title of this news, in fact, Gotham Knights include un simpatico easter egg a Shrek 2. Or rather, the soundtrack of the Dreamworks film. During one of the recent tests of the game conducted by content creators and colleagues from the specialized press, it emerged that during the various gameplay sessions it will be possible to listen to Livin' La Vida Loca. It is a song that has no connection with the game, nor with the tones, but it is certainly a surprise to see it inserted in this context.
“I have to tell you: during my Gotham Knights preview session, Livin' La Vida Loca started and it was the most confusing moment of my entire session. My jaw dropped to the ground and I wondered what the hell was going on ”, the words of a content creator declared on Twitter and who tell how she reacted to this particular situation.
