I am sure a good portion of you had a chance to play or at least try Warner Bros. Interactive and DC Entertainments’ award winning Batman Arkham Asylum. For those of you who loved the game will be happy to hear that Rocksteady Studios is hard at work on the squeal named Arkham City. As you can take away from the title the action is going to take place inside the city.
Set inside the heavily fortified walls of a sprawling district in the heart of Gotham City, this highly anticipated sequel introduces a brand-new story that draws together a new all-star cast of classic characters and murderous villains from the Batman universe, as well as a vast range of new and enhanced gameplay features to deliver the ultimate experience as the Dark Knight.
The game is scheduled to release in the Fall of 2011 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Windows PC.

Nicely timed for the GOTY edition of Arkham Asylum comes another classic Mega64 video, enjoy!
US Batman fans can now rejoice. It was previously reported that Batman Arkham Asylum GOTY Edition will not release in North America, frown no more as Rocksteady and Eidos announced that the GOTY Edition will release stateside this May.
The Game of the Year edition will have four new challenge maps, and TriOviz 3D gaming support that “puts a 3D wrapper around the game” allowing you to play it in 3D without requiring 3D TVs. The game will come with 2 3D glasses.
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.
