In the recently-held VGA Awards, several bombs were dropped, one of them being the announcement of Batman: Arkham Asylum 2. The awards featured a teaser trailer to the superhero sequel, which showed what appears to be the infamous penitentiary in absolute chaos, overrun by thugs and crazies, even as the head loon himself, The Joker, sat watching from his perch, looking a bit raggedy but still maniacally sinister and ready for a rematch. Looks like Bats is going to have an even more demented time than he had before.
The spot was cool but short and a bit vague- but probably we can count on The Joker and Harley Quinn at least returning for the sequel. I’d have posted the vid but Youtubers who posted it got slapped in the face with Copyright Claims from Viacom. If you wanna see it, head on over to Gametrailers.
What can I say? The first game was tops, but there’s always room for improvement. Here’s to seeing even more of the Gotham Rogues’ Gallery going up against Bats in the upcoming sequel (though I hope Poison Ivy returns), along with some surprises. Still a long ways to go for this one, so keep it in mind but don’t hold your breath.
