Batman: Arkham Asylum was one of my favorite games from recent memory (as you can see from this glowing review.) it had everything a video game should have. Balanced and timely progression through the character and level. A Story that you can get into and has a griping arc to it. Voice acting that draws you in and doesn’t distract you from the game, great graphics, controls, sound….and of course, the god damn Batman! Needless to say I was MORE than excited when the sequel was announced!
The Spike Video Game Awards opened tonight with a teaser trailer. Announcing the sequel to Batman:Arkham Asylum. The trailer showed a URL “Arkhamhasmoved.com” which hasn’t gone live yet. Nothing really more is known. Other than. Again. It will feature Joket and Harley Quinn.
The story is based around the capture and return of the Joker (voiced by Mark Hamill.) to Arkham Asylum. Batman (Voiced by Kevin Conroy.) accompanies him through the halls of Arkham during the opening credits. Once they reach a checkpoint the guards inform Batman that they have it all under control and he can’t enter. Reluctantly, The Batman sits back and watches the guards take him away. It isn’t too long before Joker makes his move. Knocking out the guards and making it passed the high security gates with the help if Harley Quinn (Voiced by Arleen Sorkin.) who has already stealthfully taken control of Arkham. This is where the game begins.
