Last night on the Spike TV 2009 Video Game Awards, Rocksteady shocked everyone by announcing a sequel to their immensely popular Arkham Asylum.  After some intense analyzation of the world premier trailer, people have possibly figured out the game’s setting and one of it’s boss villains.

It appears that Arkham Asylum has grown, and now encompasses a huge walled-off ruined section of Gotham City.  During the trailer, the camera pans by the Penguin’s Iceberg Lounge, which could mean the long time villain plays a big role in the game.  Unfortunately no official details have been released, so take this all with a grain of salt.

Hit the jump to check out some images from the trailer and decide for yourself.

  1. I just hope the boss fights are more impressive this time around. That Killer Croc fight in Arkham Asylum was the only letdown in the game.

  2. Basically, I can’t wait to see if they’re adding a “Bats Hard” harder difficulty, or something to make me want to play it more than once. I’m a pretty hardcore Batman fan, so I’m stoked about the new bosses: maybe Clayface will finally get his chance?

  3. I will play it but the second time in game I face a nameless steriod fueled henchman that I have to throw a batarang at then doge i am putting the controller down.

    Fool me once rocksteady shame on you, fool me seven times…..

  4. @cynicalmonkey — I dunno, it reminded me of my college days when I attended my first and only frat party. . .

    I don’t think the Penguin will play a big role in the game. The Iceberg Lounge is more of a nod to Gotham since it’s become a recognized landmark in the comics.

    On the flip side, I’m surprised this article didn’t mention Two-Face. If you go to the site, you’ll see what is clearly a representation of him. I would definitely count on him as a boss in the sequel.

    I believe the Penguin will be good for the game but is the game for PS3?
