Two concerns with this

1) who will voice the joker now that mark hammil has retired the role

2) hopefully the dark tone is maintained, I really love that about the Arkham games and the modern comics

so does this mean big ass arkham county is not happening? :(

Maybe they'll try for someone who can sound like Cesar Romero. That was silver age, wasn't it?

RavageX1927d ago

The guy who voiced Joker in the animated Red Hood movie didn't do a bad job in my opinion, get him to do it eh?

Build more popularity with justice league like Lego batman 2 for the justice league movie

Love the sound of this - a more colourful, retro action game could be awesome. Throw in the origin story and a 1960s graphic novel visual style and I'll be happy.

Awesome, Adam West voice work please.

Christian Bale. So excited for next week.

I was just thinking that. I had to Ctrl+F to see if anyone else thought that too haha

A prequel...awww

Leave prequels for the spin off games or other types of media, I hate it when games/films do two installments then for the third on in the trilogy do a prequel.

Hopefully this isn't true...I want to see a sequel to finish of the Arkham trilogy and is set in Gotham City.

Experiencing Batman's fist encounter with the Joker and other villains could make for a really interesting experience, but I hope they stretch the events out if they go in that direction (give us day and night cycles, maybe let us switch to Bruce during the day, etc.).

Dealing with a ton of villains over a single night again might be a little hard to justify.

Nimblest-Assassin1928d ago (Edited 1928d ago )

Day and night cycles?

Batman does his best work in the dark.... Unless you want to play as bruce Wayne, but how could they make his gameplay interesting?

Kurylo3d1928d ago

i would love to run wayne enterprises and play a game about the stock market :/ (sarcasm)

Shadowstar1928d ago

How about playing as Matches Malone?

krazykombatant1928d ago

Go see lucious fox and get more and more gatches from him for the night?? You assign him bits of the costume or gadgets be fucking coool

Kurylo3d1928d ago

or i could skip the whole luscious fox thing since its long boring and unecessary.... and click a button in the menu.. or have a character toss it to me :)

Agree - you'd definitely want day-time sections, and the idea of being Wayne at events, in the bat-cave and stuff is awesome.
