Batman: Arkham Asylum – Video Game

August 16, 2008 at 12:07 pm 1 comment

Having just recently got back into the world of comics, I’m pretty excited to hear that there’s a new Batman game coming, and not the type that usually comes with the release of a movie.

Eidos announced earlier this week that there’s a new game coming based on the comics, and not the excellent The Dark Knight film.  Here’s part of the story from 1up.com:

“Tired of waiting for Electronic Arts to figure out what to do with their Dark Knight game? Let Eidos comfort you in their warm embrace — in the latest issue of Game Informer, the publisher has announced Batman: Arkham Asylum, a new game based generally on the Batman comics (NeoGAF, via Kotaku).

By “based generally,” that is to say Eidos owns the rights to the Batman comics (while EA owns the rights to the Batman movies), but Batman: Arkham Asylum isn’t specifically based on the graphic novel of the same name. Rather, it’ll reportedly pull from all 70 years of comic history, with an original story crafted by Paul Dini (who served as a writer, producer, and editor for Batman: The Animated Series), and artwork and character designs by DC Comics studio Wildstorm.”

Here are some screens.  As you can see, it looks good.  Unreal Engine 3 looks even better than before.

Can’t wait.  I actually just finished reading Arkham Asylum – A Serious House on Serious Earth last week.  It’s a great book, definitely different from the usual Batman fare.  Check out the rest of the 1up story here.

    I originally posted this as a comment on my blog, realizing that you probably wouldn’t get an e-mail indicating a reply to my blog:

    Re: Transformer teaser posters

    I will agree with you. The first poster is just a shot from the first movie with type that most likely came from the website with the movie fonts. Someone photoshopped in a line from the first movie in that second poster.

    If anything, the posters at least look cool.
