Today Warner Bros. announced the title for the much anticipated sequel to last year’s blockbuster hit Batman: Arkham Asylum. Dubbed Batman: Arkham City, the new title takes the Caped Crusader out of the loony bin and tosses him into the “heavily fortified” “mini-city” of Arkham.
Aside from the details above, the only other information we have on the game is that it is slated to arrive on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 in Fall 2011.
Obviously, I loved Arkham Asylum. I though it rejuvenated the long forgotten beat ‘em up genre, while expanding on what gamers thought was possible in terms of stealth play. Hopefully Arkham City will deliver the same great action seen in Arkham Asylum while adding enough features to not feeling like it has somehow become stagnant.
What do you guys think? Are you as excited as I am for this game? On a side note, what villains do you hope to see in Arkham City? I know I’m holding out for some intense shark combat.
