Dark Knight Trailer

Just in case you missed this yesterday (and I did because it was my birthday and I was finally watching Toy Story 3), Rocksteady Studios has announced the name of its Arkham Asylum sequel. Batman: Arkham City is out in autumn 2011, and takes place inside a new maximum security home town for Gotham’s most dangerous criminals. That’s right – it’s Batman meets Escape from New York.

Strangely, the Gotham city council decided to locate their prisonville in the heart of the city – a town planning folly that would have Prince Charles frothing at the mouth. And with the Joker recovering from the injuries sustained in the last game, frankly there goes the neighbourhood.

Characters expected to appear in the game include Catwoman, Mr. Freeze, Talia al Ghul, Two-Face and The Riddler, with Mark Hamil set to provide his iconic voicing of the Joker for the final time.

But Bat fans, who is missing from this line-up of thugs and mad men? And what do you make of this ‘same-but-bigger’ sequel set-up?
