Yesterday a new trailer came out for Batman Arkham Asylum showcasing the stealth elements of the game, surprisingly it doesn’t look too bad. Maybe it could be the game to redeem Batman?
The Batman games have had a pretty sordid history, with no outstanding games being released since the SNES era *cough cough The Adventures of Batman & Robin *cough*.
Also surprisingly this is one of the few Batmans games based on the comic instead of the movie/animated-series. The trailer only shows the Joker but here’s hoping a few more villains from the Batman mythos make an appearance.
Batman Arkham Asylum is being developed by Rocksteady Studios for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Microsoft Windows. It currently has a June 9, 2009 release planned.
