The sequel to Rocksteady games 2009 hit, Batman: Arkham Asylum, is set to hit a store near you next fall. Batman: Arkham City will deal with the Dark Knight busting heads in the newly formed Arkham City, which is essentially a sectioned off looney bin in the heart of Gotham. There really aren’t many more details than that, but here’s the official statement from Warner Bros. as transcribed by PlanetXbox360.com’s Eric Bush:
Developed by Rocksteady Studios, Batman: Arkham City builds upon the intense, atmospheric foundation of Batman: Arkham Asylum, sending players soaring into Arkham City, the new maximum security “home” for all of Gotham City’s thugs, gangsters and insane criminal masterminds. Set inside the heavily fortified walls of a sprawling district in the heart of Gotham City, this highly anticipated sequel introduces a brand-new story that draws together a new all-star cast of classic characters and murderous villains from the Batman universe, as well as a vast range of new and enhanced gameplay features to deliver the ultimate experience as the Dark Knight.
