    Click on for a teaser

    Hmm, it seems to take place in Gotham, rather than the Asylum itself. Hm. The Bat symbol's all crumbling apart, too.

    Mod Note: 12/15/09 Update with press release and Quicktime trailer.

    I hope they add Catwoman, Mr. Freeze and Clayface to the game. I felt cheated they were mention but didn't appear as bosses.

    Best news I've heard today. Arkham Asylum was probably my favorite game of the year and biggest surprise as well. Good to see Joker back too, I like how he's still worse for wear.


    Edit:
    I'm also glad Rocksteady is back on it. I know it was a very good possibility they would but sometimes with a property like Batman you never know and the whole merger of Eidos and Square Enix could have become an obstacle. Luckily none of that mattered as they're on it again :D.

    I assume it'll be Hammil. That's his laugh and I always take retirement statements with a grain of salt.

    This reminds me why I need to go back and beat Arkham Asylum. A sequel being made this fast is a surprise to me. I can't even imagine how big the world will be for this, if we're using all of Gotham, even if it in ruins.

    He mentioned it in all the interviews he did for Arkham Assylum. I was hoping that he'd eventually come back to the role but I defintely didn't expect it so soon. Who knows, the trailer might use a sound alike or just re-use one of his laughs from the last game. Counting he doesn't like to do a "dark" joker probably doesn't help things.

    From what I remember, Eidos was simply a co-publisher with WB, and was in such a weakened state pre-Squenix that they also allowed WB to co-publish Mini Ninjas. However, with WB acquiring Midway this year along with fully releasing FEAR 2 and Scribblenauts, plus Rocksteady's status as an independent studio, we can expect more from this Batman universe. And, due to the relationship, we may see Squenix release #2 in Japan, just like the first game.

    Speaking of, Arkham Asylum is now on my Christmas list. I just hope that the sequel will have Catwoman and Hush. And maybe Jason Todd.

    I hope that this game actually has more real boss fights, that was one of the few big complaints I had with the original.

    I actually had no problem with the boss fights cept Joker, and even that I didn't mind too much. But I can definitely see why some people didn't like the boss fights. I read an interview with Rocksteady on crispy gamer and they said the boss fights were the last thing they worked on and they were listening to the criticism seriously.

    I wound like to see Nightwing, Robin, Superman, and Wonder Woman cameo's in the game and voice by same actor's in the DCAU.

    Nope its Mark and not stock footage this was a new laugh since theres a cough in it. Also if you only saw it online and not watching the VGA's at the VGA's Joker did the introduction. You dont see mark onscreen but you hear his voice and I doubt that was a sound alike and if it was that was one helluv sound alike.

    BATMAN: ARKHAM HAS MOVED; the story so far on the sequel:

    - Joker will be in it, recovering from the events of the first game, with Harley next to him.

    Other villains featured in the teaser were:

    - Two-Face (Uncle Sam parody poster)

    - Penguin (Iceberg Nightclub)

    - Black Mask (from the sign saying "SIONIS")

    - The location will be Gotham, as the inmates have gone out of control and all over the city (because the events of the first game, so I would guess if there are other villains, the "cameos" from the first game might be clues onto who they might be), in reference to "Arkham Has Moved".

    - All of the games featured in the VGA, including this one, all have the same release date: 2010.

    Not that I don't believe you, but is there a link that confirms these things?

    You can see most of that by going to the website and watching the trailer.
