Batman: Arkham Asylum announced *UPDATE*

Game Informer is going to blow the lid off an upcoming Batman game that sounds completely unrelated to the Dark Knight game rumors…


Game Informer subscribers are in for a real treat this month. We’re proud to bring you the world-exclusive first look at Batman: Arkham Asylum from Rocksteady Studios and Eidos. This completely original title explores Gotham City’s darkest location, the infamous Arkham Asylum. But as a routine prison transfer goes wrong, the Joker sets his demented plan into action and Batman comes face to face with an army of his worst enemies. In a dark and gritty setting reminiscent of Bioshock (with a story co-written by Paul Dini), Arkham Asylum is setting the stage for a true-to-character Batman game.

No word on platforms just yet, but I’m sure that will change once the issue hits newsstands.

*UPDATE* - A press release has come out, and the title has been confirmed for PS3 and 360 only.
