New Batman Game (Yay) But it’s Not the Dark Knight (Boo)

There is definitely a new Batman game coming out, and Game Informer has the first exclusive look at it. Unfortunately, for Dark Knight fans (everybody) it won’t be based after the movie. Although, EA owns the right to the movie license, so that’s still a possibility.
The next game called Batman: Arkham Asylum is being develop my Rocksteady Studios (Urban Chaos) and Eidos. The Story – written by Paul Dini (Batman Beyound), will explore Gotham’s Arkham Asylum, where the Joker was sentenced to for crimes committed earlier. When the prison has a routine transfer, something goes terribly wrong, and the Joker takes over Arkham with all his evil minions. Game Informer promises the setting for the gameĀ  will have a “dark and gritty” level design that reminds them of Bioshock.
Hopefully after years and years of waiting, we can finally have a good Batman game. Check out the Joker cover after the break.

  1. The joker cover is great and I loved Riot Response so I can’t wait to hear more about this.

  2. The Joker seems a more of the classic, harmless character who was in expert in tom-foolery instead of the gritty, sociopath Joker we all know and love.Hell, Heath Ledger’s final look was pretty softcore compared to the concept art I saw on /film.

    I wish they would make him darker.Messy makeup or scars would be great.

  3. @ Smith Smith: despite looking like this, the Joker in the comic book is not a “harmless character” by any stretch of the imagination (well, after the late 80′s anyways). If you’re not a fan of the comics, I suggest you read “The Killing Joke”, “A Death in The Family” and “Arkham Asylum”.

    I have high hopes for this game as Dini was always one of my favorite Batman writers and would love to see him involved in a Bat-movie some day.

  4. After playing Assassin’s Creed, I really felt its level design could work as a cool Batman game. The way you run around on rooftops and jump down to help/kill people, I just felt like it could be reworked into a Batman game. I guess the only problem would be doing it in an urban skyscraper setting.
