Batman: Arkham Asylum GOTY Edition Will Not Release in North America

Batman fans around the world rejoice! Well except for North America. Warner Brothers confirmed to Joystiq that Batman: Arkham Asylum Game of the Year Edition (now in 3D) will only be released in Europe, Asia and Australia.

The said game will include special glasses  with a TriOviz 3D effect. The technology works with regular TV and doesn’t rely on red and blue lenses.

The ‘TriOviz 3D’ support will be included in both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game, says Square, along with a pair of 3D glasses.
“By leveraging the depth-of-field while maintaining the original gameplay and colour integrity, TriOviz 3D creates a far more immersive gaming experience, allowing console players to dive deeper into the Gothic world of Arkham Asylum,”

New challenges are also included. Players are able to face-off against Arkham Asylum’s toughest inmates in environments from the game such as the Crime Alley and Scarecrow Nightmare. Not so bad news for people who think Its not worth it to re-buy Arkham Asylum just to peep the 3D version.

I don’t have a copy of Arkham Asylum yet, and being a kid from Manila made it more exciting for me. I guess I’ll be getting this instead of the previously released one.

What are your thoughts?
