New Batman Game

August 13, 2008

The next Batman video game has finally been leaked, and it's literally nothing like you expect, but could be 100 times better than you can imagine. Hit the jump to turn your brain to fire.

The new game has NOTHING TO DO WITH THE DARK KNIGHT.  Breathe, child, breathe.

The game will be titled Batman: Arkham Asylum, and what it does have to do with is the Joker.  It is based on Batman taking the Joker to Arkham Asylum where his foes have set a trap for him.

The remainder of the video game will (in theory) be comprised of Batman battling through his once-defeated foes in the halls of an insane asylum.  Breathe, child, breathe. reports:

"In Batman: Arkham Asylum Eidos and Warner Bros. are building a true action adventure game experience worthy of gamers and fans," said Phil Rogers, CEO of Eidos Interactive. "Players become Batman, like he has never been seen before in a video game, as he fights through intense circumstances in Arkham Asylum utilizing his intuitive detective skills and aggressive melee attacks."

"Batman: Arkham Asylum offers players the chance to battle Gotham's worst villains with Batman's physical and psychological strength in a graphically distinct and story-driven game,"
