Batman: Arkham Asylum 2 Adds The Penguin, Two Face, & Black Mask to List of Villains

Ripten: "Geoff Keighley posted a tweet nine hours ago asking his followers if they happened to pick up on any of the villain reveals in the Batman: Arkham Asylum 2 trailer revealed on Spike TV's Video Game Awards show last night. This prompted me to watch the trailer a few times over to see if I could spot any of them myself.

In addition to Harley and the Joker, who are clearly visible towards the end of the clip, the freeze frame images I snapped below from the VGA trailer seem to point to the possible additions of The Penguin, Two Face, and Black Mask..."

was a great game and cant wait for part 2.

Nostradavis3631d ago

that it was. was my second best behind uncharted 2.

FrankDaTank3631d ago

Batman was good but I'm not sure I'd put it on the same level as Uncharted 2.

Everyone was upset with L4D's too soon sequel but everyone is OK with Batman's sequel being announced within 4 months?

unknownhero11233631d ago (Edited 3631d ago )

the thing is though is that this is just a teaser trailer and there is no set date for the game yet and besides Batman:AA actually felt like a full game. In other words, this isn't like that L4D situation.

Lifendz3631d ago

Arkham Asylum because it has name recognition but it seems like this one takes place in Gotham City. Shouldn't the name have something to do with Gotham?

4pocalyps33631d ago

have they actually called it arkham asylum 2? becuz i don't remember it being said in the trailer. or is every1 just referring to it as aa2?

but yeah so cannot wait for this game. i want scarecrow back in it. he was the best part of the first game. wich isn't saying a lot since the whole game was awesome

NewZealander3631d ago

batman AA was an excellent game, i wish i had bought it, but it was ridiculously overpriced here in nz, but it was the best rental ever!, i hope they drop the price for the second game otherwise ill rent that one too, but if its reasonable i would probably pick up both games.

I think it's pretty cool how they gave clues that way.

Cheeseknight283630d ago

Yeah, it's pretty obvious you had no idea why people were really mad at Left 4 Dead 2. Valve promised lots of DLC for the game but never released it, then all of the sudden a sequel comes up.

Unlike Valve, Rocksteady never promised DLC for Batman but gave us some anyway, and for free as well. They have every right to announce a sequel this soon.

FamilyGuy3630d ago

It's Jonah Hex. Look him up, he's a DC Comics veteran though I only know of him because he seemed interesting in one episode of Justice League Unlimited

Hmm, now valve has some competition on making good sequels in 11 months.

Nostradavis3631d ago

good point :) lets see how many people rush to start the batman arkham 2 protest thread.

mrv3213631d ago

Forgive me if I'm wrong but they didn't announce a release date in the trailer and I haven't seen one anywhere. I wouldn't be surprised if this is pushed back to 2011 so that's two year ;)

Valve has good competition when it comes to making game sequels in a short period of time?

Ha! Left4Dead 1 & 2 are ages behind Arkham Asylum.

Foliage3631d ago

The L4D2 petitions had nothing to do with a quick sequel. When L4D was released the game was incredibly lacking. Valve promised extra character, weapons, and levels as free DLC. A lot of people bought the game under those expectations.

That DLC was never released, instead a sequel was planned which was essentially the original L4D plus the DLC that people were promised. Except L4D2 had a full price tag. People were pissed that Valve expected people to pay the full price of 2 games for half a games worth of content.

This game will be amazing! I'm telling you that much. The bosses will be epic and the plot looks to seem very interesting. Knowing that Joker is back after getting blasted in the face and Harley got out of her cell means something awesome must have happened. Can't wait!

FrankDaTank3631d ago

This game already is amazing. The second one will be amazing times two. Like beer with more beer.

Rt00273630d ago

But they need to put in more detective puzzles, because my favourite part of the game was Batman's gadgets and stuff

Nostradavis3631d ago

has anyone figured out the 4th villain yet?

cereal_killa3631d ago

What about the Riddler he was in AA but was never shown in the 1st game.

penguinhunter3631d ago

I think the Penguinhunter was seen in the trailer.
