A Peak into Arkham Asylum

I don’t know who made this decision, but it’s a great one — whoever you are, I commend you: instead of releasing a rushed, crappy video game tie in with The Dark Knight (EA reportedly halted development on it), Rocksteady Studios and Eidos are now taking their time co-developing a new Batman video game for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.

“Arkham Asylum” is not tied in to the film franchise, is co-written by Paul Dini, producer of TV’s Batman: The Animated Series, AND is rumored to run on the Unreal Engine… Wow. This is getting even better. The story is about an uprising at (surprise) Arkham Asylum led by the Joker, and Batman’s attempt to squash it.

Here are some screenshots — as with the movie, it looks like we can expect another dark, gritty Batman experience. Release is set for sometime in 2009.


  1. I just want to see a trailer!
