I never really seen Batman/Joker work together, maybe once in the animated series but I can barely remember it, so this is kinda interesting to have one of your greatest rivals be your partner (even if its for a short time), or even if this is a fun thing to do on the side, it's really an interesting thing to put into the game period.

Something tells me they'll release Robin costume as DLC and it would fit perfectly for those really into the extra challenges. Would fit perfectly for the game system as well, i mean... Co-op Batman and Robin, who wouldn't want that?

If someone can pull it off it's Eidos, they have perfected every character they've put in Arkham Asylum and they'll do the same to Arkham City i'm sure.

I would buy the DLC day on, btw.

Seeing how its not real time gameplay it doesnt confirmed anything. It does hint at there being co op. Personally I hope the story mode doesnt have co op in it. I think co op missions be cool maybe they kind of do it to fill in little extra things they you wouldnt see durning the normal story mode. Plus is be a great why to let you play as some of the villians
deadreckoning666  +   1840d ago
Ummm...this vid doesn't confirm anything. It could just be a cutscene. Not saying Arkham City won't have co-op...just saying that the vid doesn't confirm it.

@mcmmaster- Yeah, a couple people probably commented without watching the vid. I expect Arkham City to have co-op since most 3rd person action games have co-op these days, but this vid doesn't prove that it'll happen.

Exactly what i was thinking, its probably just a cutscene in the games story mode
BryanBegins  +   1840d ago
Seriously?? You don't think that this video all but confirms co-op in the game? Wow, I'm speechless.

It's like the ultimate prove if you ask me. The entire trailer has the only purpose to show co-op! Nothing else (not for the main game, but it at least confirms some kind of co-op modes)

On topic: I still hope for a RDR-free-roam-like multiplayer. Like in this video, you cans ee that you can decide to play co-op for a while but then, you can turn back to fight.

Edit: ok seriously guys, watch the video. It is soooo obvious that this is intended to show co-op in at least a fighting mode. I really, really can't believe you got people agreeing with you. We must really not watch the same trailer.

You are making an argument on probability. Nothing seems confirmed until it is confirmed by the developers.

As a result this is, by definition, not "confirmed", just perhaps a large hint

BryanBegins  +   1840d ago
@Alpha: OMG, let's play on words now. Yayyyyyy.

So let's play dumb and treat this as only a GIANT hint (and ultimately prove). OK I'm in your game.

And yeah, let's imagine that this might maybe only be a freaking cut-scene! Like this videos looks like this. You're killing me guys. The moment where the Joker team-up with Batman, it's so obvious it isn't from a cut-scene in the game. But again, ok, let's play dumb together.

I would accept the argument that it might actually be a fake trailer. But even there...

it kinda looks like this could b some kinda of challenge room, not really tied directly into the story mode, but i could b completely wrong
Lifewish  +   1840d ago
Agreed, this trailer confirms nothing except the game looks awesome
SwampCroc  +   1840d ago
it almost looked like right before the final scene where the Joker got punched out.. when they were standing... that looked like actual footage.. like games fly back to right after a cutscene. I agree. Co-op would be nice and is expected. But this doesn't prove much of anything. Other than the game looks good.
MidnytRain  +   1840d ago
Yes, but developers and publishers are pretty smart about how they go about things. I'm sure they would have thought that if they made a scene that strongly suggested that it had a certain feature and it really didn't, they would have reconsidered the video.

If anything, I can guarantee that if co-op is not a part of the game, working with the joker in the single-player WILL be.
Axecution  +   1839d ago
Bryan, this honestly confirms nothing. It looked like gameplay footage, sure, but that could and most likely 100% definitely IS an AI Joker, not a player controlled joker.

Or, it could be a cutscene as other people have said.

The chances of it being a co-op announcement is ridiculously slim, and it just definitely isnt.

Ahh please dont tell me Joker will turn good in this game, I want him as evil as he can be.
Eamon  +   1840d ago
Obviously he won't. Joker isn't the only main villain in the game.

He most likely is not the most powerful figure in Arkham City so Batman and Joker most likely make a temporary truce to fulfil their own goals.

Joker probably wants to overthrow the most powerful figure and take his place while Batman has his own righteous agenda.
Pozzle  +   1839d ago
The Joker? Turn good? Hahaha! It will never happen!

The Joker and Bats have worked together in the past. It certainly doesn't mean Batman is turning bad or the Joker is turning good. It just means they haven't started beating each other up yet. lol
Christopher  +   1840d ago
Looks like an optional challenge room mode. Don't see how this would fit in with the storyline too well considering how Joker was left at the end of the first game.

Also, if the person who wrote the original article ever reads this, please edit the text of this item to say Arkham City, not Arkhum City.

Batman Arkham Asylum was an epic game man. It simply raised the bar higher. Achieving the same thing on the next batman game would be hard, but I have no doubt in my mind that they can do this/even do better. I just don't want them to screw it up like they did with The force unleashed II.
IcarusOne  +   1840d ago
Cannot wait for this game. Co-op or not, it's gonna be great.
Mystickay86  +   1839d ago
This is fake. 80% certain. I think a majority of these people are mislead. Then again, looks good ;P. But yeah, don't get your hopes up.

Yet look what happend when the person tried to embed the video. The site become sh*t in the layout...but everything in pending is equal folks. The most pathetic rule to N4G.
Rashid Sayed  +   1840d ago

Ripping off a sites HTML code and pasting that in to n4g. You have basically screwed's design. How on earth can that be a legit submission. You CANNOT rip off source code from another site. The video player of that site does not allow the embed code. You ripped the entire web page and in doing so you also screwed n4g's design.

Talk abt original source..meh!
ajcastillo  +   1840d ago
I did this because some other person Reported my News saying that i needed to embedd the video so i did, i was aplying the rules of N4G, that doesn´t gives you the authority to assume that your news is first and better than mine, you practicaly even ripped my preview, you know what if you consider yourself part of the gaming journalism at least have some balls to put the credits where it is deserved. Oh another thing putting Kewego as credit is like putting youtube as credit that is against the rules of N4G, but hey who gives a damn just because my blog is a little gaming site compared to others, thank you very much for everything.

N4g clearly states that if your site finds some news, you can put that link in the credit url. Even the submission page has a credit url input box. I found the news on that site and posted it and gave credit url to the original site. Thats an n4g rule.

davidmccue  +   1840d ago
The video IS embeddable, i my self have embedded it on my own website, from what i can tell from both the articles in the discussion neither one of you have embedded it within N4G which is the rule. Adding 'THE VIDEO IS NOT EMBEDDABLE' below your submission then removing it afterwards is a bit sly Rashid.

Looks awesome! I cant wait to see more about the story, and what it has to offer. But, a little co-op mode on the side wont hurt.

However, I do wonder if this is real, or not.

Am i the only one that finds it a lil fake considering it uses dialogue from arkham asylum?
Eamon  +   1840d ago
it does?

Wow. If you're right this might be one of the most successful gaming hoaxes ever.
celtics345  +   1840d ago
I thought the exact same thing. The first 5 lines, at least, from Batman & Joker are taken word-for-word out of Arkham Asylum. Very Interesting..
SeraphimBlade  +   1840d ago
Caught onto that myself. Looks like the in-game graphics from Asylum too. I'm not convinced this is real either
Blaine  +   1840d ago
It's hard to tell if it's real. All the character models and dialog are from AA...
Orochi Avlis  +   1840d ago
Looks fake to me.
All the art assets and models come straight of off Arkham Asylum.
Even the lines are lifted off of the AA.
P_Bomb  +   1840d ago
Looks cheesy and out of charachter imo, especially the slo-mo co-op throws. The Joker isn't Robin, or Batgirl, or Nightwing. This team up makes no sense, especially since Joker is the reason Oracle is confined to a wheelchair. Batman has no friends now? At the very least call Azrael ,lol.

Looks odd to see Batman taking a kip up and doing the fastball special with the anorexic clown.

"This team up makes no sense, especially since Joker is the reason Oracle is confined to a wheelchair."

Then again, Batman DID have a laugh with the Joker at the end of The Killing Joke; mere hours after he shot Barbara in the spine.
P_Bomb  +   1839d ago
Laughing at a joke under duress isn't the same as becoming a crime fighting dynamic duo of their own. :p

B-B-Batman and the Joker...working together...?
Mind blown doesn't even begin to describe how much my mind mind has indeed been blown. Weather its fake or not.
Drummerdude41  +   1840d ago
Idk it just kinda seemed like a fail moment to me when he started to fight with the joker...Was kinda hoping it would branch out to a more not so basic scenario or a more rpg build your character up type game play. The game could still branch out, but from this trailer it looks pretty cookie cutter.
BabyTownFrolics  +   1840d ago
was not expecting that
RandomGamer  +   1840d ago
Yeah it's fake for sure,Since the joker was a mess in an earlier trailer thanks to his use of venom makes no sense how he was magically healed.
Also as other people have said the joker uses the exact same lines from that he does in Arkham Asylum.
koehler83  +   1840d ago
Jihra  +   1840d ago
This is odd, Batman would never never never never fight with Joker. First thing he would do is disable the joker then take care of all the rest. Kinda disappointing, why not co-op(if there is co-op)with Robin or Nightwing.
BryanBegins  +   1840d ago
I don't know, I see that as a hint that the multiplayer modes will be very free. Like you can play with the character you want, and you can team-up with whoever you want.
Jihra  +   1839d ago
If its multiplayer I have no issues with that, I just wouldn't want it in the main campaign.
Kakihara  +   1840d ago
...Okay, tha' wuss a lil weird. Consider me firmly in the 'This shit be fake' camp.
Lucreto  +   1840d ago
I am not sure if this is real also. All the Jokes lines we have heard before and we seen all his moves if you played the first game.

It could be real but there was a lot of reused stuff in it that puts me off.
CryWolf  +   1840d ago
I must say that was AWESOME!! Batman Arkhum City going to have Co-Op gaming this time around, I hope you can go Online with Co-Op too.

Since you could use Joker in the PS3 version that's where they are pulling him from. Just seems like its the combat area mode but now with coop support.
orion456  +   1840d ago
This isn't a trailer at all.
It's so obviously fan made.
I can't believe I'm one ofthe few people who realizes this.
CYBERSNAKE  +   1840d ago
Yeah I know, the script and animation are obviously from Arkham Asylum, either Rocksteady are making a terrible trailer (which i highly doubt) or this is fanmade.
evildeli  +   1840d ago
If this is fan made, they need to get hired to work on the real game. It looks good.
Bozzio  +   1840d ago

The_Great_D  +   1840d ago
what the heck? batman and joker working together? thats not suppose to be how co op was done in this game. I heard you were able to patrol the city as batman, robin and batwoman and you stopped riots from joker and you could set up traps when you played as the villains. batman and joker fighting together would be so dumb in my opinion.
nskrishna2  +   1840d ago
Looks fanmade. We need an official statment people
OhReginald  +   1840d ago
Fake Fake Fake!

heres why its fake

1. PC modders created this scene.
2. Re-used voice-acting from first game
3. Batman's bat logo on his suit is different in the sequel while this one is taken from arkham asylum.
4. this is the crime alley map from arkham asylum.
5. Joker is supposedly dying.
6. this is stupid batman and joker would NEVER work together.
7. The guys they are fighting are from arkham asylum game.
8. rocksteady would never release such a poor quality video.
9. no rocksteady logos or warner bros.
TheBatman_Fanatic  +   1840d ago
Another reason is the utility belt, it looks like the belt from Arkham Asylum. The utility belt is changed in Arkham City.
xVeZx  +   1840d ago
even if it is fake its still cool....
Justanothergamer  +   1839d ago
I have another theory : this video could have been made by Rocksteady as a basis for co-op mode in Arkham City.

The kind of video intended only for the developer, to show the whole team the direction in wich the developement should be taken.

We know they started working on AC before Asylum was even released : the artworks in the secret room.

My point is the video is official (it explains why Warner is taking them down) but was made a long time ago, around the release of Arkham Asylum I'd say, and was never intended to be shown to the public.
OhReginald  +   1839d ago
no they removed it because its their property and the video is clearly spreading false information.
Xfanboy  +   1840d ago
Did batman just team up with joker?? I hate the sight of this!! scrap it a start over please!!

Edit: thank god it a mod..

Yeah, didn't think it was official. From the start of the video it just didn't feel right - pretty cheesy and awkward, not the mention the Arkham Asylum dialogue. Pretty good fake though, I'll give them props for that! Hopefully it helps to generate even more hype for the game, it deserves it.
